Dr. Jennifer Madden
Amherst, NH

To many of her patients, Dr. Jennifer Madden is more than just your typical family practitioner.  She’s also an unofficial social worker, a therapist, minister, and a friend – especially to her transgender patients and those questioning their gender identity. Dr. Madden herself is a transgender woman, and so she is able to answer questions, offer advice, and give support to those going through their own transitions. Dr. Madden counts herself lucky to have a supportive family and children and wants the same for her transgender friends and patients.

“I try to spend as much time with my patients as I can to help them,” Dr. Madden said. “I try not to have them focus too much on the big picture, but to try to take it a week or month at a time. It can be overwhelming once someone figures out what the process is like, how slowly the changes can occur, and how much of a struggle they will have with family, work, and friends. My own experiences help me guide them.”
