What to Expect
If hormone imbalance is suspected, Dr. Emer will recommend a consultation with one of his hormone optimization experts. In the consultation, you will share your cosmetic and/or functional concerns, treatment goals, medical history, and information on any medications you take. It is also important to discuss your diet and exercise habits. Our expert will consider all of these factors when determining your optimal hormone levels and how you can achieve them.
Comprehensive lab work is crucial for hormonal optimization. Through an evaluation of the metabolic and hormonal factors in your blood, our hormone optimization experts can identify overproduction and underproduction of specific hormones. This in-depth analysis is conducted in the context of the patient’s lifestyle, medical history, medications, diet, and fitness habits in order to accurately diagnose and resolve hormonal imbalance.
