General Questions

Are there any complete contraindications to bio-identical hormone therapy?

We do not treat patients who are current smokers or patients with current or history of breast, uterine, and ovarian cancer. We will also not treat patients with history of recurrent blood clots.

Will you do my hormone refills after my 4 month hormone package is over?

Yes, we will continue to do your hormone refills until the anniversary of your first visit.

Can you order labs through my insurance?

We will do our best to order as many labs through your insurance as possible. But, we can not ensure that those labs will be covered.

Do you take Insurance?

No, we do not and at this time we do not provide superbills. We do accept HSA funds and CareCredit.

Can I bring my pet with me to my appointment?

No, the building manager does not like that.

Can I bring my kids to the appointment?

No, the doctor does not like that- she comes to work because she has 4 at home. Just kidding, you absolutely can if you have to, but we encourage you to make time for yourself so the appointments can be done in a relaxed fashion with your full attention on your health

Will I lose weight with hormone rebalancing?

Hmmm, that’s a tricky one. As I tell my patients it’s yes and no. The YES: It is common to feel an overall sense of wellbeing when hormones are balanced and so it’s easier to make better choices about food, movement, and self care; you don’t feel the overwhelm and the sense of you are in survival mode. Many patients also report that within months of hormone rebalancing they find their body fat distribution to resemble that of their younger 20 year old selves The NO: If you are not making good for choices 80% of the time, eating buffet size portions, and not moving you won’t lose the weight.

Do you do anti-aging hormones?

No, I do aging gracefully hormones.

Do you do men’s hormones?

Yes, but not the kind that will turn you into Rambo or The Rock. I do not mean to imply that they look this way because of hormones- but, I do mean to imply you won’t look that way with my hormone approach- but you too can age gracefully.

Do you do Peptide Therapy?

We offer a variety of peptides used to treat many conditions.

Peptide Therapy

Peptides are specific amino acid sequences that communicate directly with and enhance the function of body systems. Peptide Therapy is an exciting area of cutting-edge medical science that has the potential to make dramatic health improvements in patients.

As peptides naturally occur in the body they are extremely well-tolerated and very safe.

Supplement Overwhelm

What supplements do you need to take? Which brands are the best for absorption?

I would like to answer these questions for you and reduce your supplement overwhelm. 

Longevity Optimization

We all have a genetic blueprint in our DNA, which indicates whether we might have a tendency for chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, fibromyalgia, dementia and arthritis. 

The thing about it, though, is that just because it is in your DNA does not mean it is your future. Epigenetics, the study of genes, involves two important terms – genotype and phenotype. Very simplistic definitions of genotype and phenotype are what is in your genetics and what is actually present. So, for example, say you did genetic testing, and it shows you have the genotype for diabetes that puts you at risk for diabetes. Still, you do not have the phenotype for diabetes because your labs and testing do not indicate you have diabetes. In a nutshell, this is the concept of epigenetics: that there is more to developing disease than having a gene. There are certain environmental factors that can turn on and turn off genes resulting in a phenotype that either matches your genotype or does not.

This is powerful information. As I tell my patients, just because it runs in your family does not mean you will get a particular disease. To counter genetic tendencies, you can create a lifestyle to help keep those genes from turning on and becoming your phenotype. Not everyone wants to or can do genetic testing, but for many of these diseases, the interventions that make the significant effects are similar.
