    *IMPORTANT* METRO IS NO LONGER IN WILKINSBURG. They are now at edgewood town center which is very difficult to get to if you don’t drive and aren’t in an immediately neighboring neighborhood. That is the main flaw of their facility. It is hard to get to without a car.

    That being said…

    I second the recommendation of Seltman. I’m queer and trans but my main issues are a slew of mental and physical health diagnoses. On the trans stuff, I’m atypical in my identity and Seltman didn’t question me or interrogate me before he gave me hormones (which I was already on anyways). I didn’t have to prove anything.

    I use him far more forphysical health concerns. Seltman is versed in both mainstream western medicine and natural medicine. He respects the importance of wholistic approaches and takes things seriously when you have issues. He has a lot of connections and when you need referrals to specialists, he can offer you ones that are queer friendly or prepare you if not.

    He puts in a lot of effort for a lot of people so he sometimes ends up rushed. But he’s the best family medicine doctor I’ve ever had. His partner, Janet Seltman, does energy work and movement therapy and is also really great.
