Every day I ask myself, " How can I be a better person than I was yesterday?" We are all unique in some way. Every person has their own special needs and individual talents. I will do my best to incorporate your thoughts and ideas into any medical decision.
I think what sets me apart from other medical providers is that I know what it's like to be different. I was born Henry Joseph Madden Jr. and struggled for many years with my gender identity.
In July 2012, I published "Confessions of a Transsexual Physician" which is an upfront story about the difficulties associated with transitioning from one sex to another. I feel it's a privilege to have lived both as a male and female. It grants me a certain perspective on the world that few are able to know.
I do have a special interest in providing medical care and hormone therapy to transgendered individuals. I am a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health and follow their guidelines. In concert with other experts in this field including therapists, endocrinologists, and surgeons, I try to help individuals with gender dysphoria find peace within themselves.
