Notable quotes from Dr. Brown’s interview:
It has been a wonderful blessing to partner with people who are learning to become their authentic self.
Too often Transgender patients go in and they’re being told that there’s something wrong with them. That they don’t take care of those types of people in their practice.

Caring for the individual means accepting them and providing guidance.
