47:54 Question of the Week

"How come there are not as many resources available in regard to more experienced Transgender-friendly endocrinologists in Boston but also around the United States? The reason I ask is because there are people in the community that need to immediately consult these endocrinologists. Unfortunately what appears to be going on is that these well known, limited endos in many states are nearly impossible to see because of a rather large list of clients they currently see."
