WHAT IS HORMONE THERAPY?
As we age, our hormone levels change and may become irregular. Even though this occurrence is natural, particularly for women who are pre- or post-menopausal, unbalanced hormones can keep both women and men from living and enjoying their lives to the fullest. In fact, having balanced hormones plays a bigger part in your total well-being than you might realize. Because of this, our highly skilled medical doctor, Dr. Arthur Schlyer is proud to provide this effective treatment to the New Port Richey, FL community. We can personalize each bioidentical hormone therapy treatment to meet your specific needs and concerns.

WHAT DOES BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE THERAPY INVOLVE?
At your private consultation with Dr. Schlyer, he will discuss your symptoms and concerns, which will help him develop the best bioidentical hormone treatment plan for you. Before creating a tailored treatment plan, Dr. Schlyer will need to perform a comprehensive blood panel to review your hormone levels and determine whether you have any irregularities or imbalances. Next, we'll build an individualized treatment plan to address these issues. We'll send this information to a compounding pharmacy to have them create a customized hormone therapy treatment that meets your needs and improves your health.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY CONSULTATION?
Once we have created your treatment plan, you can pick up your individualized prescription at the pharmacy. Based on what Dr. Schlyer recommends, you'll need to take a specific amount each day.
