The study, When Health Care Isn't Caring, by Lambda Legal stated that 70% of transgender and gender non-conforming respondents reported that they had experiences discrimination from healthcare provides. The discrimination they received were providers refusing to provide medical care, refusing to touch or use excessive precautions, using derogatory or abusive language, or physical roughness and abuse. 56% of lesbian, gay, and bisexual respondents also shared similar experiences.
