Do I have to be in andropause or menopause to have a hormone imbalance?

No. A hormone imbalance can affect men and women of all ages. Generally, symptoms become more apparent the closer you get to andropause or menopause but if you are experiencing any signs of a hormone imbalance it is best to seek treatment.

Diagnosis

How does the doctor know that I have a hormone imbalance and that I need treatment?

First, the doctor will start by looking at a full blood panel and evaluating your levels and overall health. Then the doctor will look at your medical history and discuss symptoms with you. A combination of these things is used to determine if you would benefit from treatment.

How long does the blood draw take?

During your first appointment, a certified phlebotomist will simply take your blood and send it to a hormone testing lab for a full test. Typically this appointment takes 15 minutes.

How long does it take to meet with the doctor?

During your second appointment, you will meet with one of our medical experts to do a thorough evaluation and create your customized program. This generally takes 30 minutes.

Treatment

How do you treat low hormones?

The symptoms of a hormone imbalance can be treated in many ways such as pills, creams, gels, pellets, and injections. For men, we use injectable testosterone alongside two other prescription medications to ensure safe use. For women, we use creams.

All of our medications are bioidentical, meaning they are not synthetic and are similar in structure to the hormones your body already produces.

How long do I need treatment for a low hormone imbalance?

Treatment can last as long as you and the doctor are comfortable. We will consistently monitor your results using bloodwork and follow-up consultations to determine if treatment is still a safe option for you.

Do I need to come to the clinic for treatment?

No. All of our programs are self-administered and home-delivered. We give you all of the supplies you need for treatment at home. However, we always encourage patients to come into the clinic for body composition analysis or repeat blood work if they would like to measure their goals.

Do you offer other products beyond hormones?

Yes. Along with our TCore20™ hormone therapy program, we also offer additional products such as peptides, vitamin and amino-acid blends, and erectile dysfunction medications.

Do you use legitimate medications?

Yes. All of our medications come from a licensed and regularly-inspected compounding pharmacy. Our supplements are also made in a regulated GMP facility.

Cost

How much does treatment cost?

Everyone’s program is different. Cost depends on the medications you are approved for following your consultation. Generally our programs range from $195 to $295 per month.

Does insurance cover treatment?

Typically insurance does not reimburse or cover the cost of hormone therapy medications. However, we do accept HSA and FSA cards for treatment and services.

    review rating 5  This is a game changer. I was always extremely tired, on edge, no motivation, lack of energy, etc. I went to my Dr. and was diagnosed with extremely low T. I came to Affinity, and from the moment I walked in, I was treated like family. The staff as well as the owners are top notch and extremely supportive. I can’t believe how much this has changed my life in such a short period of time. I’d recommend this to anybody experiencing the same symptoms. You won’t regret it.

    review rating 5  Great service. I was a client ~5 years ago, and their program changed my life, health-wise. Due to divorce, job changes, and other 'life' situations, I found that I had gotten off-track with my health and diet in the last year or so. I knew that I needed to "fix me first' so I visit again at the beginning of this year. Everyone on the staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and able to explain options in treatments and programs. My patient advocate, Glen, is available any time I might have a question or need clarification on anything. He checks in on me without being intrusive, and makes sure that things are staying on track. In addition, there are now payment plan options available (not something available 5 years ago) which makes it even easier to take that step to bettering oneself. Highly recommended!
