Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy

Our Functional Medicine program covers a broad range of concerns, including pre and post menopausal, adrenal fatigue, medically low testosterone and hyper and hypothyroidism using bio-identical hormones. Bio-identical hormones have molecular structures that are identical to hormones that are naturally produced by the body, and are therefore indistinguishable from the body’s own hormones. The types, combinations and dosages of bio-identical hormones are customized to fit each individual patient depedning where they are medically low and too high. 

 

Hormones are powerful chemical messengers that are only prescribed following a comprehensive individual medical assessment and careful testing. The goal of prescribing hormones is not only to achieve optimal levels of each one, but also optimal balancing of all the hormones in the body. Our clinic offers many options of extensive testing to get these levels.

Becoming A Patient:

 

Please fill in the contact form below, and request a Functional Medicine Information package. 

 

This package includes further information such as fees, types of testing offered and appointment information. It also includes a questionnaire, which will help the doctor understand your health history, and prepare for your first appointment. Once the questionnaire is completed and returned, your first appointment will be scheduled.

 

As always at The De Pieri Clinic, a full medical assessment is done to determine whether you are a candidate for hormone therapy. At this assessment, testing will be arranged, and a subsequent visit will be scheduled to review results, prescribe medication and provide your treatment plan. 

 

Please note that we are not a General Practice, and we require all of our patients to have a regular Family Doctor, with whom we are happy to collaborate and share results if you so desire.

 

We look forward to working with you to reach personal optimal wellness!
