We are passionate about hormone replacement therapy with compounded bio-identical hormones. Some women sail through menopause without a symptom. Some women are not so fortunate. Bio-identical hormone therapy is very helpful for relieving the disrupted sleep, mood changes, hot flashes, weight gain and loss of sex drive that some women experience during and after menopause.
The risks of using hormones are low when the hormones are applied to the skin with low-dose custom-compounded blends that are properly monitored with labs and thermal imaging of the breasts.
Your insurance company may not cover the cost of checking hormone levels. The cost for our hormone panel including estradiol, progesterone and testosterone is $185.
Once on hormone therapy, we require an annual visit, breast screening (either digital infrared thermal imaging or standard mammogram) and hormone levels (drawn at our office or elsewhere) to continue therapy. We cannot file insurance for coverage of thermal imaging of the breasts.
