Recognizing that many women experience disturbing side-effects at menopause and during peri-menopause, we provide sensitive and skillful care to address all of their problems.
Acknowledging that there can be adverse physical and emotional consequences for women once menopause arrives, we evaluate and treat each woman as the unique individual she is.
Bio-identical hormones are strongly recommended in place of standard pharmaceutical products and we utilize the most expert compounding pharmacies. Hormone therapy is thoroughly discussed , including all therapeutic options, and each woman is guided towards making her own decisions.
Many factors must be considered when determining how to use hormones in the menopause, including how the patient metabolizes her estrogen, her GI function, her lifestyle, her family history and other risk factors, and her desires. We strongly believe that it is inappropriate for doctors to take a weekend course and then begin prescribing hormones, as they are not qualified to treat the side-effects and complications.
