Patients come to us with a lot of questions regarding Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. We answer a few of them here.
• Compounded bioidentical hormones are made specifically for you in the exact dose recommended by your doctor based on your physiological needs.
• Compounded bioidentical hormones are made at the time they are prescribed, reducing the need for unnecessary additives such as fillers, binders and preservatives.
*Note: Be cautious when analyzing cost differences from one clinic to the next, as some who advertise set prices do not include follow-up testing. We only recommend tests that are pertinent to your specific situation and will truly tailor individual protocols on a patient-by-patient basis.

At your initial consultation you will have your blood drawn and sent to our blood lab or your insurance company’s lab. The results will provide Dr. Bernard with the information he needs to address any hormonal imbalance. Your physician may begin some Rx treatments at your initial office visit, dependent upon your age, health history and overall assessment needs. At your follow-up visit Dr. Bernard will review your labs and discuss the results with you, and will customize a plan of immediate action including nutrition, fitness and, if needed, bioidentical hormone therapy with possible further laboratory assessment.
