Hormone Replacement Therapy
Following the initial blood draw, Hormone replacement therapy can be done without leaving your home. Supplies are delivered to your residence timely without you having to make any doctor visits. Have some questions, assistance is simply a phone call away. This cuts down on the costs associated with travel.
Our goal is to help you begin feeling as well as you did in your 20’s and 30’s, before your
natural testosterone levels began to decrease. In order to accomplish this goal we use a bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to optimize and regulate your testosterone levels as well as several other hormones. Since the hormones we use occur naturally in your body, it greatly reduces many of the adverse side effects commonly associated with synthetic therapies.
To begin treatment, we need three things to occur. First, we need blood work from you. This will help understand your current testosterone levels and ensure we get the initial dosing correct. It will also help us identify anything else that might be going on.
Secondly, we will need a completed intake form with our informed consent. This will help us understand your health
history, your current symptoms, and a few lifestyle considerations and goals that will also assist us in determining the best course of action. Lastly, we bring it all together in the consultation with one of our providers. This is the point where it all comes together. The lab-work, coupled with the information from the intake will guide the practitioner in asking the right questions to make absolutely sure that we get you off on the right foot as quickly as possible with your initial
prescription. Our approach saves you time and money by ensuring we eliminate as much trial and error as possible.
After being on the initial therapy for 60 days, we follow up with you again with additional lab-work and another consultation to ensure the treatment is working as desired. This also gives us a chance to determine if your individual physiology requires any additional tweaking to ensure the most appropriate dosing and optimal state is achieved. After this follow-up appointment, you will usually only be required to follow up with us once every six months. Make no mistake though if you ever feel that anything is amiss or if you feel like your hormones are out of balance, please let us know immediately and we will get you back to the lab for lab-work asap.
