Hormone Replacement Services
Did you know... A woman's levels of estradiol abruptly drops to less than 20% of her youthful levels as she approaches the age of 51? Similarly, a man's Testosterone level declines, starting around the age of 35
Dr. Maria G. Gherman MD, MPH specializes in evaluating and prescribing Hormone Replacements for female menopause, male andropause, somatopause and other hormone deficiencies.
Dr Gherman will provide a comprehensive medical consultation of your chronological age with the goal to improve the biological age and to optimize the quality of life by preventing diseases and premature aging through hormone balancing and integrative therapy.
The age management consultation will include:
A comprehensive physical exam
a thorough evaluation of patient's expressed symptoms
current nutrition status
evaluation of fitness
a review of current medications
thorough evaluation of past medical history
family and social medical history
a review of the baseline preventive medicine blood tests and interventions
You will be asked to bring your most recent blood work, EKG, mammogram, and Pap Smear results upon initial visit if available. Further testing may be requested by Dr Gherman to get an accurate diagnosis and prescription. The hormone panel levels will be reviewed and the proper natural FDA approved Hormones will be prescribed with individualized and customized doses at a compounding pharmacy.
