Dedicated & Certified Professionals
Since 1997, Preventive Medicine Center has specialized in state-of-the-art therapies, which includes the supplementation of bioidentical hormones: DHEA, testosterone, pregnenolone, estrogen, progesterone, melatonin, and thyroid.
We also specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of P.C.O.S.
The program offered at the Preventive Medicine Clinics is the culmination of my own personal experience, and ongoing review of the research and latest scientific studies. As an certified Rouzier hormone physician and an avid fitness enthusiast, I have personally found that the benefits of hormone replacement have enhanced my quality of life and put me on a track to delay avoidable muscle deterioration which enables me to perform physically as I had in the past.
As patients relate to me the aches and pains, loss of muscle and strength, decrease in endurance and lack of desire for physical activity I am fulfilled knowing that we carry on the Rouzier legacy of helping patients live more physically active and healthier lives which hopefully results in less disease and better longevity and overall quality of life. Our patients overwhelmingly report that after optimizing their hormones back to youthful levels, the pain and deterioration and or pain has subsided. They are back to what they were years ago. I personally am happy that I followed my intuitive sense that there was another way of looking at this. As a medical doctor it is easy to fall into a confirmation bias against hormone replacement especially when we are not trained in the art of bioidentical hormone replacement.
