Trust Wholeheartedly
Luikenaar is the only doctor I have no reservations about recommending to people. They have been nothing but wholly supportive and kind during my gender journey and I always feel comfortable and safe with them. Safe and inclusive healthcare is rare but Luikenaar has always been there for this community and I will continue to go to them for a long time.

Dr Rix is fast and efficient when giving me info and answering questions, I've been going to her for 4 year's and never had an issue. When her Medical Assistant took my blood, she found my vein quickly, didn't hurt, didn't bruise. I love Rebirth and their staff

I love Luikenaar!
I’ve been seeing Dr Luikenaar for 6+ years now. She’s extremely knowledgeable with trans healthcare and continues to expand her knowledge and practice to the LGBTQ+ community here in Utah. As a trans person in Utah, healthcare is always hard to navigate but Luikenaar and her staff have always been willing to help. Not only is Luikenaar a great doctor but also a great for providing resources and other help regarding my transition. I’m beyond lucky to have her as my doctor.
