Natural or bio-identical hormone replacement can be highly effective for men who have the signs of andropause “male menopause” which begins as early as 30 in some.  Every patients starting hormone levels and symptoms are unique, as well as,  their response to treatment.  As a result our medical staff works closely with patients to provide unique treatment plans and make appropriate adjustments to optimize the patients blood chemistry.
