(9 Oct 16)
Conversation frequently occurs about the schedule of local meetings and medical services here at the Phoenix metropolitan area.
There are four primary trans and LGBT support groups. There are others, I don’t know all of them.
Maricopa County operates a medical system of clinics and hospitals throughout the county. They have offices and practices which offer services to the community.
There are several private practice doctors and counsellors and other services throughout this area. I shall presently withhold listing commercial entities.
I shall also list other information here to make this an information page. I shall up-date this page with additions as others submit them or as I find them.
