HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Do you suffer from hot flashes, night sweats, memory changes, or decreased libido? These symptoms are often caused by a lack of balance in the hormones present in the female body. Hormone replacement therapy may be able to help. If you have these symptoms related to peri-menopause or menopause, Dr. Earle Pescatore has the expertise to diagnose and treat your symptoms and provide relief through the use of pills, patches, creams, pellets, and other hormone replacement options.
