About Foria

Gender-affirming care, made for you.

We’re committed to improving healthcare equity and access to trans, non-binary, and gender diverse folks.


Shaping every interaction


We are anti-oppression and understand the negative clinical experiences our patients may have had in the past. We prioritize your physical and mental wellbeing in all interactions.


Our virtual clinic model allows us to connect patients to gender-affirming care in the safest, most accessible way. We will continuously be working on improving access to our care.


We welcome a diverse range of patients with unique experiences and journeys. Foria clinicians aim to create spaces where it feels safe to share your story with us.


Our patients are the experts on their lives and we, their clinical partners. No decision is ever made without your involvement. We are a team.
