Dr. Toby R. Meltzer of Scottsdale, Arizona has been awarded the Independent Equality Award by The Human Rights Campaign and will be honored at the 2016 HRC Awards Gala in February.
Dr. Meltzer has dedicated his career to providing surgical services to the transgender community. In 2003, Dr. Meltzer relocated his practice from Oregon to Scottsdale, Arizona. He performs surgeries such as Vaginoplasty, Breast Augmentation, Phalloplasty and Metoidioplasty for more than 200 transgender people every year.
Dr. Meltzer will be honored alongside Maria DeNicola, owner of Senza Pelo MedSpa in Phoenix, where she has been providing permanent hair removal for transgender clients for over 30 years. She has since become a strong ally for the transgender community, and often collaborates with Dr. Meltzer as a team.
The 2016 HRC Awards Gala takes place February 27th at the Sheraton Grand Phoenix, Arizona. For more information, visit www.hrcazgala.org.
