Although the work of caring for transgender patients may not be particularly specialized, many transgender people in the U.S. have difficulty finding doctors, e...specially in rural areas. Jaemon McLeod grew up an hour-and-a-half south of Atlanta in Barnesville, Georgia. He has been seeing a doctor one county over since he first decided to medically transition in 2006.
Since transitioning, he says he has been turned away from emergency rooms and has been refused prescription testosterone refills at pharmacies. Once, while having lunch in a university cafeteria in Macon, he overheard a group of pre-med students joke about the prospect of “accidentally” administering a fatal overdose of anesthetic during surgery on a transgender patient.
