Hormone Therapy in Boca Raton, FL

There is a lot of interest in hormone therapy for menopausal women. Recent studies and media publicity have left the public confused about this issue. A significant number of women will have enough symptoms at the time of menopause to need some form of therapy to maintain or return to a normally functioning lifestyle. There are many forms of hormone replacement that work well to alleviate symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, depression, insomnia, vaginal dryness, and other problems related to hormone loss.

Some basic principles of hormone replacement, no matter what type is used, are that while they may improve function they DO NOT increase or decrease life expectancy. While they may alter some risks of disease that one may get such as heart disease, breast cancer, and osteoporosis, their overall effect on life expectancy is not changed. This applies to all forms including bioidentical hormone therapy.

Because each individual has such a dynamic health history and symptoms, you should discuss therapy with your provider as treatment must be tailored to the individual patient.

Non-Essential Appointments Cancelled

Due to COVID-19, we will be reaching out to you to reschedule any non-essential appointments (re: physicals, annuals, and other well visits) until further notice.

COVID-19 is causing things to change rapidly and our operations can vary because of this. We ask for your understanding and that you check our website for the latest on operational hours and services available.

You can also call ahead if you have questions.

We are proud of our staff who are working during this time, and pledge to you our highest service possible during this pandemic.

Patient/Visitor Guideline Update

In an effort to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission and provide a safer environment and promote social distancing which is recommended by the CDC, we are asking that patients limit the number of people accompanying them to an appointment. No visitors (including children) will be allowed to accompany each patient unless a specific patient needs extra support. We encouraged visitors to remain closely connected to their loved ones through virtual means, including Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp, and/or phone.

Additionally, we are respectfully asking that children not accompany any adult patients, unless there is a medical necessity. We know this may cause scheduling challenges, particularly for families with younger siblings, but we can all play a role in reducing the spread of this virus. Thank you for understanding our need to do so and for helping us keep you and our greater community healthy.

We are also asking any patients with a cough, shortness of breath or fever not to come to our facility and call ahead of time. You will be directed to another facility for evaluation.

All patients are to wash their hands before and after their visit. Hand washing, social distancing, and self-isolation are still the best ways to prevent this virus from spreading more widely.

We are committed to providing the best care to you and will continue to give you the best guidance we can.
