Our MISSION is to provide a safe, nurturing environment in which patients may access personalized therapies delivered at the highest standard of care, enabling them to heal and transform into their full potential for health and well-being.
Our GOAL is to ensure every person who walks through the door knows they are seen, heard, and valued (nod to Brené Brown!)
Our PURPOSE is to do as much Good in the world as we can, to increase happiness and ease suffering via delivering excellent medical care within our specialized training and extending other help and resources as may be responsibly provided.
Our VALUES are demonstrated to the extent our actions align with Love, Equity, Peace, Beauty, Truth, and Freedom. None are free until all are free, so the Work continues.
Our STANDARDS, which enable us the best opportunity to achieve the above, include rigorous honesty, radical self-responsibility, daring self and interpersonal accountability, and graceful humility demonstrated by deep gratitude and generosity of spirit.
Who can see us?
WHO caN see us?
We are an Informed Consent clinic, so if you have a therapist, fantastic, but we don’t require a letter from one to get you started on gender-affirming hormone therapy. You must be 18 years or older or have your parents’ consent to start treatment. Dr.V has received the training required to make the diagnosis of Gender Dysphoria and to proceed with gender affirming hormone therapy, as appropriate and as you desire. Because you know who you are.
WhO We ARe
Dr. Kristen Vierregger and her Staff at Metamorphosis Medical Center have been serving the Transgender, Non-binary, Gender-expansive, and gender-diverse community in Orange County, CA - and beyond! - since 2013. We bring the experience of working with ~1500 others who feel just like you, providing them hormone therapy and other transition-related services.
The formula behind our reputation is simple: we care a lot about you and how you’re doing; we listen to what you need and what you want; we center your experience and narrative; we deliver on our promises. We commit to upholding these values in every single patient encounter.
We look forward to meeting you, and we’ll be honored to help you in your very own metamOrphOsis.
