Once we book your initial consultation with one of our Physicians, we will email you a link to our new patient questionnaire. Please fill out the patient questionnaire as soon as possible. Our patients being seen for hormone deficiencies need lab work, and sometimes this is scheduled before or after their initial consultation. During the initial consultation, one of our physicians will spend about 45 minutes going over your past medical history, discuss your symptoms, general health, wellness and treatment options. A follow up appointment (included) will be booked to go over your lab results or brain function analysis results and discuss the best method of treatment and optimization going forward.
If you are on testosterone from a compounding pharmacy, the law states that you must be seen by a doctor every six months to continue your prescription. If not, we require an annual visit. We offer phone consultations if it is too inconvenient to come into the office.
If you are in a program for Neurofeedback or Biofeedback, we require a minimum of one visit per week. The more you come every week, the quicker the improvement.
We believe that every patient’s treatment and optimization regimen is different, and our team of providers will work with you to design a comprehensive care or optimization program that is right for you. Over the years, we have realized that in order to maximize your health, you need much more than just an office visit or two per year. We want to provide the ultimate healthcare experience and help you reach your goals.
This question greatly depends on the individual and method of treatment chosen. Some patients feel the effects in a matter of weeks, others in the first couple of months. We will work with you during the first couple months of treatment to find the optimal frequency for your individual treatment plan.
There are very few side effects associated with BHRT and the potential ones are classically linked to dosage. If you are experiencing any negative side effects after starting medication, give us a call and ask for one of our nurses to discuss the issues we are having. After the conversation, we should be able to balance your hormones properly and all side effects will usually disappear.
No. Bio-Identical Hormones do not cause cancer. In fact, it has been shown that hormones actually reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases in women. A full explanation of the myths of BHRT can be found in Dr. Brown’s book, The Youth Effect, available online, and given to all new patients. We have also written many articles about the risks and rewards of BHRT, in many cases helping our audience better understand the claims of the mainstream media, or parameters of a recent study.
Most women and men are quite comfortable during the procedure. The numbing cream is very powerful, so the only discomfort may be a slight pinch. The numbing sensation may last for 30-60 minutes after the procedure.
There are typically no side effects or downtime with either the O-Shot® or the P-Shot®. Patients are encouraged to go back to work, exercise if they wish and even engage in sexual activity the same day as the procedure.
PRP procedures are not drugs, and therefore are not regulated by the FDA; however, the PRP kits and the Magellan centrifuge we use are approved by the FDA. PRP procedures have always been known to be safe, and are being shown in many specialties to be effective treatments.
