Appointments

After your initial HRT appointment, you can expect the following:

  • Monthly appointments to monitor dosage until your hormone levels have stabilized
  • Six months after your levels have stabilized, we will schedule a checkup appointment for a saliva retest

If you are a weight control program and hormone therapy patient, your appointments for both services can be combined.

Please review our fees and no-show policies prior to your scheduled HRT appointments.

Prescriptions

Prescriptions for HRT will provide refills to last until your next scheduled visit.

These prescriptions may require compounded hormones, which must be filled by a special pharmacy that compounds medication. Our office will provide you a list of local pharmacies that can fill these prescriptions. These compounded medications may be at an additional cost to you that is separate from your appointment fees.

Please do not hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions on our HRT requirements.
