Looks like I'm not the only well known transperson who is changing addresses this year.
Dr. Marci Bowers is '98% certain' she'll will be moving herself and her practice to the San Francisco bay area October 1.
According to an AP article she is in a relationship with a first year surgical resident in San Francisco and if she moves, she would join an office in San Mateo, CA with two plastic surgeons and a surgery center.
Dr. Bowers has been practicing in Trinidad, CO since the late surgeon Dr. Stanley Biber, who began doing SRS surgeries there in 1969, retired in 2003 and passed away in 2006.
She's been disappointed with the leadership of the Mt. San Rafael hospital where her practice is housed, and also noted in an AP interview that "There are advantages to being in a bigger city with access to airports."
Dr. Bowers is also one of the few surgeons trained in genital reconstruction techniques for people who have been harmed by genital mutilation.
She noted that Trinidad's location three hours driving time on I-25 south of Denver on the Colorado-New Mexico border has been a barrier to some potential patients, but didn't rule out a future return to the area.
Whatever you do Dr. Bowers, good luck and hope that whatever decision you make not only makes you happy, but helps your potential clients as well.
