"Dr. Abrahams worked closely and diligently with me to find the right combination of bioidentical hormones...I feel like I have my life back."

When it comes to hormone balancing, women need a doctor who is knowledgeable, up to date and experienced. Dr. Michael Abrahams is a bioidentical hormone specialist with a clinical focus on menopause who is committed to working closely with his patients.

What is bioidentical hormone therapy? A good explanation can be found on the Project AWARE website.

From Dr. Abrahams:

There are only a small group of doctors that realize there is an unmet, serious need to treat this large portion of the population, namely women with severe menopause symptoms. These women need to be treated and their significant symptoms need to be addressed. You can’t ignore it. It’s real. It’s only through continuous education and clinical experience that a doctor becomes comfortable giving, monitoring, reassuring and seeing that the patients are actually improving through the use of bioidentical hormones.

When using bioidentical hormone therapy doctors need to work with patients over time to see results. This takes a certain kind of commitment to the patient. Women are skeptical if their doctors haven’t invested enough time to research and be comfortable with the safe use of hormone therapy. 

In the 1990s a study called the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) was published and in short, scared women about the use of hormones. The study has now been found faulty and there have been many advancements and research on hormone therapy in the past decades that now advocate the safe use of hormone therapy. Most doctors who were practicing in that era didn’t follow up with the studies that dispelled or felt there were problems with the WHI, and young doctors were not taught to use hormone therapy.”

Patient Perspective:

"After my surgical menopause my symptoms were extreme. Night sweats and hot flashes kept me up most of the night and depression came into my days for the first time in a way I have never experienced before. In a few short weeks my quality of life had disappeared. Supplements and alternative methods weren't working and I needed help. Dr. Abrahams worked closely and diligently with me to find the right combination of bioidentical hormones to balance me and control my symptoms. He made me me feel safe and taken care of. I am lucky to have found him at this time in my life. I feel like I have my life back."
