What is Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is used to help address symptoms related to hormonal imbalances in both men and women. BHRT is managed according to the most up to date scientific information and studies, making it consistent, safe & effective.
How does BHRT work?
BHRT analyzes your current hormone levels and assesses where they should be at, comparing them to where they are at currently. We are able to supplement the body with hormones with an identical makeup to those created in the human body when levels become to low.
Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is used in both men and women for a wide range of concerns.
- Loss of libido
- Perimenopause and menopause symptoms
- Adrenal fatigue
- Low testosterone in both men and women
- Irregular menstrual cycle
- Weight gain inconsistent with diet and lifestyle
- Hormonal acne

Process & Treatment
The first step is an incredibly in depth set of intake forms we send you to fill out prior to your appointment. This includes questions on medical history, family history, social history, libido, weight concerns, skin concerns, fatigue, anxiety or mood swings, and far more. During the initial appointment (Usually 2 hours for women, and an hour and a half for men) Stefan will go over all of these forms with you and ask further questions to get a better understanding of what might be going on. This is an extremely comprehensive appointment so expect to answer a large variety of questions.
Following this appointment, you would generally be sent for labs. You have the option to go for standard blood labs which are covered by AHS and can be done at any labs, or we do provide the option to do a far more comprehensive lab work up through a specialized private lab for an additional cost for patients wanting an even more complete picture.
Following the return of your lab results you would have a second appointment with Stefan during which you would go over all of your results and formulate a treatment plan based on the outcome of the testing performed. From there he would write any necessary prescriptions (some may need to be compounded for which we do recommend going to a specific pharmacy for) and you are able to go from there!
The cost of the procedure will be determined on an individual basis according to your treatment goals and specific needs. As everyone has different end goals, every treatment plan differs. This will be thoroughly discussed during your consultation.
