Office Visits: You will be asked to return monthly so that adjustments may be made to the dosage of the hormones and/or supplements. Once your hormones have stabilized, you will be required to return to our office in six months for a re-check. On your six month visit it will be necessary to measure your hormone levels by repeating the saliva test so that you will be able to continue therapy.

If you are a weight control and hormone patient your appointments can be combined.

Prescriptions: Hormone therapy prescriptions will be written to provide enough refills to last until your next scheduled office visit. Most prescriptions will be for compounded hormones that will need to be filled at a pharmacy that compounds medication. We can provide you with a list of local pharmacies who compound medications.
