Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Replace these hormones to more youthful levels to effectively "turn back the clock" helping you feel more positive, energetic and vigorous.
Are You Suffering From:
If so, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) May be Right for You.
Numerous hormone levels decline as we age; we call these the "pauses of life" (menopause, andropause, thyropause, adrenopause, etc.). Nothing good comes from this decline; it signals our bodies to degenerate, getting slower, fatter, sicker, and stupider!
By replacing these hormones to more youthful levels we can effectively "turn back the clock", helping people to feel more positive, energetic, and vigorous, while strengthening bone, muscle, heart, and brain, as well as enhancing mood, sleep, and immunity.
Bio-identical simply means "identical to life", i.e. precisely the exact same substance that exists in your body. The alternative is a pharmaceutical imitation, which can mimic some of the functions but is not a precise match and is often associated with undesirable side effects. We recommend only bio-identical hormone replacement, referred to as "BHRT"
What to Expect:
A complimentary consult call or clinic visit will be scheduled. During this time Dr. Pagdin will review any current labs you have, discuss your main concerns and goals and order additional testing as appropriate.
Once we receive all your lab tests a comprehensive visit will be booked. This includes a medical assessment, a review of all your labs and a customized treatment plan. (30 minutes)
For the first year, quarterly 30 minute reviews are booked. This will allow time to review labs, adjust/renew medications and answer any questions. (30 mins - $250)
After the first year, patients transition to our maintenance plan which includes quarterly 15 minute visits. (15 mins - $125).
Please ensure you complete the registration form and questionnaire with as much detail as possible. Dr. Pagdin will be utilizing many of your answers to create a tailored and comprehensive treatment plan.
In order to reduce the duplication of ordered lab testing, please forward any recent lab results that you have had within the last 3-6 months to us along with your completed forms.
Get your lab results online! Visit http://www.myehealth.ca/ to find out more.
Please note that seeing Dr. Pagdin for BHRT does not make him your "family doctor". He will be acting as a consultant for hormone replacement therapy. All other medical concerns should be followed-up with your family doctor or at a walk-in clinic.
Please feel free to call or email if you have any further questions.
