TG-Friendly Medical Professionals

Note: I have no personal experience with these medical professionals, and can only rely on recommendations that I've heard from sources that I trust. Doctors on this list do not necessarily prescribe hormones, nor are they assumed to be specialists in gender issues. However, they each reportedly have had transgendered clients before, and have been respectful.
