If you are transgender, DO NOT GO HERE. I went here for 2 years, and was still not allowed to do my shots by myself. Along with this, the doctor will also give you a monthly “breast exam” as well as measuring and checking you “down there” each visit, which is NOT normal. When I confronted him on this, he says he uses the information for when he works with intersex babies to determine what sex they really are. There is no correlation between measuring the anatomy of a trans man who is age 13+ and determining the sex of an intersex newborn. He also uses an outdated method of distributing testosterone, which is by giving a shot each month. This doesn’t allow the testosterone to cycle at a normal level and makes you experience a lot of highs and lows. The most common intramuscular site is the thigh, and for some reason this doctor chooses to administer the shot on the butt. When I confronted him about this, he claimed that it hurt less. He also uses SURGICAL numbing spray before

I came out to my parents as a transboy. For my transitioning, we did not have experience and my parents brought me to him. The dosages of testosterone he gave turned out to be 10 times what the recommended dosages were, when a new provider showed us how high my blood test was we were shocked! I am glad to have found REAL doctors now!

Dr Castro-Magana is the best of the best. He diagnosed my PCOS in 1999 (at age 18) when the condition was not well known or treated. He put me medication that helped me lose 100lbs in 2 years and gave me back my life. He is the most caring and lovely man and I only wish that I could still see him now at age 37 -Deena
