What to Expect From Our Hormone Optimization Program
Dr. Robert Madda and Dr. Cara Phillipo are both highly trained in the realm of hormone replacement and stay current with the latest research in this medical field. They comes to the table with over a decade of clinical experience in optimizing hormones. Blending clinical experience with the latest cutting-edge therapies in hormone replacement, Dr. Madda and Dr. Phillipo deliver exceptional care to all of their patients. Our preferred method to achieve hormone optimization in women is using testosterone pellet therapy. These pellets are carefully prepared in a US regulated compounding pharmacy that follows strict guidelines. In some cases, bio-identical estrogen or estrogen blockers can be added to the pellet if indicated. Bio-identical hormone pellets are compounded to specifically suit the needs of each individual patient. Other forms of hormone therapy may be recommended for certain patients.
