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.

Furthermore, our staff will be asking several screening questions regarding your health. We ask that you do not enter our office if you, or someone in your family, or someone you recently were in contact with, has exhibited flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, severe muscle aches, shaking chills, or recent loss of taste or smell, or recently diagnosed with COVID19.

In order to help us participate with our social distancing effort, we are asking patients to enter the office without any visitors, including children.

You will also have the option of waiting in your car instead of the waiting room after you have checked in. The front desk staff will call your cell phone when we are ready for you to come in for your visit.
