Andropause, often referred to as "male menopause," is the time in a man's life when the hormones start going out of balance, usually during their late 40s or early 50s.

Our customized treatment programs have been developed by our physician, Dr. Richard Sinda who is an expert in the field of bio-identical hormone replacement. Dr. Sinda also applies the principles of Functional Medicine in his treatment plans.
We complete a thorough evaluation including a comprehensive set of blood tests, exam, medical history and a complete assessment of health risks and symptoms. Based on this assessment we customize a hormone therapy program for each individual patient.
This may include: natural stimulation of testosterone production and/or safe preparations of testosterone, other hormones such as DHEA, thyroid and optimization of growth hormone. Therapies to reduce insulin, estrogen or inflammatory markers are added when necessary.
Patients are monitored to maintain an optimal balance. Other supplements are included as needed to further reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, dementia, osteoporosis and cancer.
Our treatment program can help you live a happier, healthier life before and after andropause. Live your life to the fullest and reclaim body and your health. Call to schedule a consultation today and learn about your options.
