If you’re feeling a little out of sorts and can’t pinpoint the cause, schedule a consultation at Stone Creek Family Medicine to see if hormones are to blame. They provide HRT for women during menopause and testosterone replacement therapy for men.
The family medicine practice also provides HRT for hypothyroidism, a hormone condition that affects the production of the thyroid hormones that control your metabolism.
The team at Stone Creek Family Medicine takes an individualized approach and works closely with you to determine what type of HRT is the right choice for you.
They offer many options, including bioidentical hormone pellet therapy with Biote® and EvexiPEL®. With hormone pellets, the team customizes your HRT to match your specific hormone needs. They place the pellets under your skin for a steady release of hormones.
Stone Creek Family Medicine also offers injections, topical gels, and bioidentical creams to optimize hormone balance.
You should experience a boost in mood, energy, and motivation within a month or so after starting HRT. The team schedules regular follow-up visits to monitor symptoms and hormone levels.
They adjust and replace your pellets as needed.
