I am so happy to see that Valley Medical Center is making care available to this population. So many people will be able to benefit from Dr. Quintero’s expertise. Good job Valley !!
This is so great that doctors like Dr. Quintero exist to help people with gender affirming transitions. It is sad that he mentioned patients in this category are highly criticized. That’s just one more stress nobody needs in their medical care. it sounds like patients will be lucky to have him and those on his team as their doctor because compassionate care is definitely what is necessary. Bravo to Valley Medical Center.
