BHRT question

Postby workerbee » Sun Sep 17, 2017 8:30 am

Hi all.
I'm posting this in "menapause" section because it seemed like the best fit....

How do I find a doc that specializes in bhrt?
I have read many here recommend Defy Medical, but they're in Tampa, that's across the state.
I would like some place closer, but I don't want a crack doc outfit that only pretends they know what they're doing.
I'd rather drive to Tampa before I take chances, but is there a valid way to know? Orlando is closer to my location, but how do I find a reputable doc?

And I am assuming insurance won't cover this, correct?
I really like my ob/gyn but he sure doesn't seem to be concerned with perimenapause and it's nasty symptoms.

Advice and thoughts welcome.

My DH uses a BodyLogic doctor for his bHRT. I found my doctor by contacting a local compounding pharmacy and asking them for a list of physicians who prescribe bHRT through that pharmacy.

Have you checked out ? They have a "find a doctor".
God can change what people do, behavioral patterns that have been in play for decades. He can change what we do to cope, find comfort, survive conflict, to count. Rahab had done a same old thing for years...then she did something new.
