Hi All,

I'm looking at arranging my GCS towards the end of this year and I'm looking for recommendations for providers, ideally within network for Premera but happy to go out of network on the west coast of the US (Seattle would be ideal, anywhere in Oregon / California will work).

Appreciate any recommendations to help with my research.

Thanks,


Sophie

No one in Seattle, Dugi in Portland is out 2 years (takes Medicaid) There is Stiller in Idaho and Meltzer & Ley in Scottsdale, however, they will be in Portland starting in June. Not sure what insurance Meltzer and Ley take, I have Kaiser and it was covered. A call to your memeber services might be a better place to start for Premera.

Take care,
Margaret

I used Dr Ley of the Meltzer clinic. They did the initial procedure in Portland and the followup labiaplasty in Scottsdale - very happy with my results.

Oh also, they are in network for Blue Cross (I used them when working at Amazon in Seattle and it was straightforward)
