For decades, I struggled with undiagnosed Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Hypothyroidism. The fatigue and low-grade depression became my normal, over time, and I just got used to it. It took many frustrating trips to different doctors to finally get the true cause properly diagnosed and optimally treated. After starting treatment, I started to see that it wasn’t as simple as “take this pill and you’ll be better”, which my first doctor told me. It wasn’t until I found the right doctor who would really listen and make adjustments on my medications that I FINALLY started to feel better. It was a long and frustrating journey.

So you can bet I became passionate about helping others! I wanted to learn as much as I could from experienced hormone specialists in order to fully understand all aspects of hormonal imbalances that seemed to elude doctors and frustrate patients.

Drawing upon my own personal experience as a patient and my medical training as a physician, I passionately dedicated my practice to natural endocrinology and to hormone optimizing and balancing. I began to see while practicing that hormonal deficiencies and imbalances are often the root cause of weight issues, as well as the missing link to preventive medicine and overall health.

I have been certified in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy through Worldlink Medical, after going through a series of training courses taught by Dr. Neal Rouzier, MD, a renowned expert in hormone balancing. I also offer medically supervised weight loss programs to support sustained weight loss. I believe passionately that when we combine healthy lifestyle (clean, balanced diet and exercise) with hormone optimizing, we utilize the absolute most powerful combination to keep us healthy, happy and active into our golden years!

NOTE: Forever Health provides a directory where people like you can connect with BHRT and other physicians and innovative health practitioners. We do not provide medical advice or services directly. While BHRT and prevention are important to the physicians and health practitioners listed, each has his or her own approach to practicing medicine. So when scheduling your appointment, be sure to clarify the reason for your visit, as well as your goals for seeking out such treatment.

NOTE on Insurance: Innovative practitioners and insurance companies have long debated the importance of preventive medicine and services such as BHRT. Due to variations in coverage for novel treatment options, many practitioners will resolve this issue by providing their services on a cash-only basis. Forever Health encourages you to contact the practitioner to determine if any alternative payment options or post-visit reimbursements exist.
