Top 5 Things to Look for When Choosing a Provider for Hormone Replacement Therapy in Miami, FL
If you’ve been online or heard the radio recently, you might have heard an advertisement or have seen information regarding suffering from a hormone deficiency like Low-Testosterone. You may even be experiencing early symptoms of menopause if you’re a woman, and you’ve decided to look for your nearest hormone replacement therapy clinic in Miami, FL.
In this post, we’ll go over the top five most important things to look for when choosing a clinic for Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) in Miami. Although we serve patients that reside outside of Miami, if you’re not in Miami and would like to find a provider in your area, make sure they meet all five recommendations below.
#5 – Successful Track Record
Having a successful track record is a good indicator that a medical facility is focused on the patient and not the earnings.
Body RX is one of the top providers of wellness optimization services in South Florida, with over 13 years providing wellness services in Miami, some of the highest online ratings, and over 30,000 satisfied patients served, we pride ourselves in having some of the highest patient retention rates in the industry, thanks to our personalized care.
#4 – Doctor Board Certification and Medical Staff Continuing Education and Training
Choosing a clinic for diagnosing and treating your hormone deficiency should be done with careful research and planning. It’s obviously important for your medical treatment provider to have all the latest training and certifications, but do you know which training and certifications to look for?
A4M, which stands for The American Academy for Anti-Aging Medicine, is the leading training and certifying organization for the anti-aging industry. Founded by two doctors that wanted to promote a more holistic approach to treating chronic disease, A4M hosts some of the biggest industry events, holds workshops, and provides ABAARM certification to individuals with MD or DO degrees.
#3 – Availability
We at Body RX believe your medical provider should be available and accessible to you at any time.
You may have a question, concern, or a need to reach someone either during business hours or after hours. If your provider isn’t available, and you have a concern or question about your HRT treatment, it decreases your ability to make wise or sound decisions as a patient. Our commitment to our patients is to always be available to provide the very best customer service at any time when you need it.
That’s why we’ll set you up with contact numbers and methods to contact our staff at any time.
#2 – Uses Bio-Identical Hormones
HRT treatment that uses Bio-Identical Hormones ensures you’re getting the hormones that have the same genetic structure as your own hormones, as opposed to non-bio-identical hormones that use synthetic hormones. Synthetic hormones are not recommended as they may result in greater health risks for the patient.
#1 – Experienced Physician Specialized in Hormones
An experienced physician is always better than one with very little experience, but when it comes to Hormone Replacement Therapy and optimization of your hormones, make sure you pick a facility that has at least one doctor, like an endocrinologist, or Ob/Gyn, that specializes in the complexities of the endocrine system (which your hormones are a part of).
An experienced doctor that specializes in hormones will often help you avoid many trial and error situations you might get with a doctor that either doesn’t have the experience or doesn’t specialize in hormones.
Here at Body RX, our own Doctor George Herrera, M.D., Ob/Gyn has over 20 years of experience specializing in hormonal-level medicine as well as anti-aging medicine relating to optimization of hormones.
Dr. Herrera provides patients with personalized treatments for their long-term success.
