Hormone replacement therapy will be given only after a full physical assessment of symptoms and labs is conducted by Dr. Flowers. Saliva and sometimes blood testing will be done along with a complete evaluation of symptoms. He will then design a plan that meets your needs as a patient with your input. We only treat patients with hormonal deficiencies.
Around age 35 hormone levels have normally declined enough that symptoms may be evident. The best time to start replacing hormones is when you start to notice symptoms that affect your quality of life. In most people this happens between the ages of 35 and 50. However, this can happen at any age due to illness or disease.
Testosterone is replaced using either injections, a testosterone cream, patch or a transdermal topical gel formulated to your needs that is applied to the surface of the skin in order to increase low testosterone levels. Estrogen and progesterone are taken via a specially formulated cream. Progesterone can also be taken in a capsule orally. HGH, Human Growth Hormone also known as Somatropin, is taken by injection only.
Each patient is unique with varying needs. Our policy is to fully assess all aspects of a patients’ life and design a plan to meet the needs of that individual. This is why there is no set price for services. Your options will be discussed during your evaluation with Dr. Flowers.
Yes. There are many studies that support the safety of hormone use. We use only bio-identical hormones and work closely with respected pharmacies in the area when prescribing. Hormone replacement is only given when a deficiency is detected and monitoring by a specially trained physician like Dr. Flowers is crucial when replacing hormones. Bio-identical hormone doses are kept at the lowest level possible and tailored to each patient.
As with any medical program there is always a chance of minor side effects. Because our doctors only prescribe medically appropriate dosages side effects are minimal. These side effects go away by reducing the dosage of the hormone medication. All of our programs include follow up lab testing to ensure the correct treatment dosage and minimize side effects even further.
The Flowers group has been a life saver! They have helped me over come 7 years of illness in almost 4 months! So thankful for all of their knowledge and the compassion they have for their patients.
After years (decades) of thinking I was healthy (read: macho American male), and frustration of bad hormone levels, I became a patient of Dr. Flowers. In my fourth month of treatment, my body chemistry is within normal ranges, I have lost over 30 lbs., I have noticeably more energy, and am motivated to exercise every day. I am excited to see what I can be after year under Dr. Flowers care.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Flowers for about 9 months and I love the personal attention I get from him and the office staff! I am never rushed out nor have I ever had the “next” feeling you get with so many traditional Doctors’ offices these days. I love the more natural whole body approach to healing and would recommend him to anyone!
Dr Flowers and His nurse, Misty, are an amazing team. They are thorough, responsive and do an exceptional job of educating you so that you are motivated to be an active participant in your Plan of care. This is the first time my hormones have been balanced since before my total hysterectomy in 2004. I've suffered with severe migraine headaches since age 9 and have tried everything from medicines to acupuncture. After 4 months of HRT and herbal therapies with Dr Flowers my headaches are few and far between a 90% improvement. I'm still on the journey but there is not doubt that my quality of life has improved.
Love the welcoming atmosphere created by the staff and Dr. Flowers.
They gave me hope that I would be overcoming my issues and feeling better soon.
I love the individual attention I received from Dr. Flowers and the time he allotted for my visit.
There is a lot of one on one time with both Doctor and Nurses and I feel that my concerns and comments are heard.
liked the personal attention given by Misty and Dr. Flowers. I appreciated the hour block of time where I could sit down and really go over all the lab results and treatment plan. Never felt rushed. Always feel like
