Brittany Allen MD

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics

Primary Care medical provider, Specialty medical provider

I work in two settings: pediatric primary care and the Pediatric and Adolescent Transgender Health (PATH) Clinic, which provides gender-affirming medical care for transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming (TNG) youth. This entry will describe the services at PATH Clinic.

The Pediatric and Adolescent Transgender Health (PATH) Clinic in Madison, Wisconsin provides education about medical care options for TNG and gender questioning children and adolescents. We can provide a spectrum of care, from simple observation and guidance to hormone suppression and hormone affirming therapy for children of all ages. The PATH Team strives to provide TNG and gender questioning children and their families with comprehensive education and resources about the options available in medically supporting gender affirmation or transition. We provide support resources to connect children and families with related experiences. Patient and family comfort is a top priority, and we encourage parents to ask any questions call us with questions or concerns.
