Dr. Ana Abele, Naturopathic Physician, Northamtpon, MA

Dr. Abele can legally prescribe testosterone, estrogen and progesterone under Vermont law, and she is licensed in both Massachusetts and Vermont.
To obtain a prescription for 't' from her, you have to undergo one appointment for a complete health evaluation, then arrange an appointment in her Brattleboro office.

DR. ABELE DOES NOT REQUIRE A HBGDA LETTER FROM A SOCIAL WORKER OR THERAPIST

"Dr. Able listened to all my concerns, and took into consideration all my health needs. She is a doctor, after all, and conducted a very thorough health assessment. She treated me with respect as a gender queer and did not require that I identify as a man, or as a transexual. She understod and accepted my gender identity and desire for hormone supplementation."

"I met with her for a full session in Northampton, and she recommended several herbs that support testosterone production, which I highly recommend. Then, to obtain the prescription for testosterone creme, I had to meet with her in her Brattleboro office, where she is legally permitted to write prescriptions under Vermont law. For the high quality of service and respect that I received, Dr. Abele charged a very fair and reasonable fee."
