Zest has carefully cultivated a network of area LGBTQ+ friendly specialists and providers that include mental health professionals, medical specialists, adoption resources, legal experts and community support groups. We pride ourselves in being a one-stop source for competent, comprehensive health care.
Under the direction of WPATH-trained Advanced Practice Nurse providers Francis Mijares and Ashley Whatley, Zest is proud to be among the first primary care clinics in the Austin area to support an informed-consent model of care for our population. Zest strives to provide a safe, warm and welcoming space to meet patients where they are in transition while providing competent, evidence-based, gender-affirming care. Zest is actively involved in clinical research on transgender health - including effects and risks of hormone therapy and measuring gender dysphoria. In 2014, Zest partnered with OutYouth Austinto create the Central Texas Transgender Health Coalition (CTTHC), now an official OutYouth Austin program, to educate medical and mental health care professionals to provide competent care for the transgender community.
