When your body’s ability to produce hormones is disrupted—such as a natural decline with age—you may notice a difference in how you feel.*
Hormonal imbalances may occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Because of their essential role in the body, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body.*
For patients with a hormone imbalance, hormone therapy may help provide relief from challenging symptoms.
When balance is restored, and hormone levels are optimized, the entire body can function at its full potential.*
First, the doctor will administer a blood test to review your hormone levels.
Dr. Schat is a certified provider of Biote, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) With Pellets. The Biote Method of pellet therapy is the preferred choice among more than 4,800+ physicians. When a patient decides to start the Biote Method of pellet therapy, they may receive as few as two subcutaneous pellet insertions per year—and any needed hormone will be readily available when the body requires it.
Each patient’s symptoms are unique, and so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Biote Certified Providers customize each dose of pellet therapy to the patient’s needs. The BHRT pellets that Biote Certified Providers use are made to replicate the hormones men and women lose as they age. Using Biote’s subcutaneous pellet approach, patients report feeling symptom relief in as little as several hours or up to four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months or more. Some report feeling the most benefits after their second insertion.

In addition to Biote, Dr. Schat can also prescribe traditional creams and patches used for hormone replacement.
