“I strongly recommend AHI to any of my trans or LGB friends looking for medical care. All the staff and health care providers are deeply dedicated to creating a clinic that provides excellent care for trans and LGB patients. AHI is such a welcoming place and provides great care to their patients.”

“I love Anchor Health, they are like the family I don’t have. I’m only 2 years into my transition and A.C. Demidont has made my transition such a smooth one. She’s very knowledgeable about anything I ask. The staff always provides A1 service and are so friendly and professional, I wouldn’t trade them for anything . Best doctor I’ve ever had, I fully trust my health to her with no doubts.”

“I have nothing but the highest compliments for the staff, the environment is incredibly welcoming and the care provided by Dr. A.C. is better than anything I have had to date. Dr A.C. has the best “bedside” manner of any doctor I have come across in recent memory. Overall my experience has been, on a scale of 1-10, I would say a 10!”

– Karin S.


“Amazing staff and overall great environment to be in, best thing to happen was them moving to the Hamden area! Everyone goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and I can honestly say it’s the first doctor’s office I’ve been to that I had no reason to feel uncomfortable. Would definitely recommend!”

Dr. Demidont is a bright burning fire in the world of medicine, which all to often can be a source of dark experiences those of us with LGBTQ identities. She makes her patients feel safe. She has a unique presence which affirms everyone around her that they are enough, they are valued, and that they are more than worthy of her focused time and attention. She treats every patient as the unique person they are. Her harm-reduction approach to medicine meets people where they are at in life while providing support and motivation to make healthy choices, when her patients are ready. Dr. Demidont truly has a special gift which she shares so generously with all of her patients.

I also benefited from Services provided by Dr. A.C., who I can honestly say probably saved my life POST GRS. Not even my VA Doctors could offer help. A Heart Felt Best Wishes to you.

Dr. A.C. is the most amazing doctor I’ve had I love her! She’s so intelligent knows what she’s doing, has a wonderful personality, and a huge heart!!! She wants the best for all of her patients and always gets back to you when you have concerns. I will always recommend people to go see her and no one else. She has first hand experience with things she preaches and she just wants everyone to have equal rights to amazing care!!! I’ve been seeing her for a little over 4 months now and I have nothing but great things to say about her and the people that work for her!

I was never comfortable going to see a doctor until I met A.C. She took the time to help me feel comfortable despite experiencing intense dysphoria, which is not something any other doctor has understood before. I started going to see her a couple of years ago when I was first realizing that I identify as trans, and she has helped me the entire way, from getting my name changed to having top surgery, and now hormone replacement therapy. A.C. truly understands the challenges facing the LGB, transgender, and gender-non-conforming communities and does amazing work to provide the best care in a friendly, compassionate, fun way. I’m so thankful to have found her and to have her as my doctor. She works tirelessly not only to help her own patients but also educates healthcare professionals all over the world so that we all receive the care we deserve. A.C. is inspirational to me not just for everything she does, but for being her authentic self while doing it and I absolutely recommend her to anyone in the LGB, transgender, and gender-non-conforming communities who are seeking a doctor who truly cares, understands, and provides compassionate care.

“Love this place and all of the staff!!! Truly a gem in the world of healing and I am grateful to have found them on my journey! Dr. Demidont is the best doctor I have ever had and brings an honest and comprehensive knowledge to everything she does!!”

“Amazing staff staff that truly care for their patients. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly as soon as you walk in the door. They provide excellent care and educate you and advocate for their patients.”

– Moises G.


“The staff from the front desk to the doctor are professional and courteous. I am a cis-white gay male. I have never experienced witnessing in a medical practice the entire staff respecting everyone’s preferred pronouns and skin color. As a member of the local LGBTQIAPLUS community it is vital that we have more than just script writers for our community. We need care for every aspect of our mind, body and spirit as well as our community and Anchor Health Initiative strives for that and reaches it every time. The only medical practice in CT that does that and I’m so grateful I found them.”
