Your guide to finding the right HRT provider

Are you ready to ask your doctor about hormone replacement therapy (HRT)? Getting the care you need is not as simple as just asking a doctor about HRT. Before you do, you need to know what to look for in a treatment plan and the difference in pursuing treatment from your general practitioner versus a physician who specializes in hormone replacement therapy.

Pursuing HRT is a critical decision, one that requires time, money, and effort. The care you receive can determine the benefits you achieve from the therapy—tremendously. Here’s what you need to find out when asking a doctor about HRT:

Passion for quality-of-life care.

The traditional model of medicine has become convoluted by insurance and pharmaceutical companies, leaving may doctors practicing medicine by the swoop of their pen on a prescription pad rather than the pursuit of real solutions. Your doctor should have your best interests at heart, considering your health, and helping you find treatment options that will ultimately improve your quality of life.

These doctors will look at the whole body, seeking the root cause of your issue and treating the problem at the source, not just masking your symptoms with a bottle full of pills. If your physician isn’t passionate about how well you are living, you need to seek a second opinion—a longer life is not worth much if you can’t enjoy it.

Specializes in HRT.

You wouldn’t go see a neurologist for pain in your hip, so why would you go to anyone but an HRT specialist for hormone replacement therapy? Physicians who specialize in HRT pursue extensive training in functional medicine. They clock in hours of education dedicated to understanding the impact of hormonal imbalances and how to carefully assess and treat these issues. Your hormones control nearly every physiological reaction in the body, meaning finding balance from an expert is nothing less than crucial.

Consider cash-based medicine.

Sometimes you have to look outside the traditional health insurance compensation system to find a physician who can give you the treatment you need. Doctors who specialize in HRT often have to step outside of the insurance-based model of medicine in order to deliver the comprehensive care required for any effective hormone replacement therapy treatment plan.

Offers comprehensive lab testing and assessments.

You shouldn’t expect to walk into a doctor’s office and get treated with hormone therapy within the same day. If you do, something is very, very wrong with that situation. A comprehensive HRT treatment plan should begin with advanced, full-panel lab testing and a personal, one-on-one consultation with a hormone replacement therapy specialist.

During your consultation, you and your doctor should discuss your lab results, as well as your symptoms and the aspects of your life that have changed since you came to suspect hormonal imbalance as the source of your plight. Then together, you and your doctor can determine the best treatment options that will address your health concerns and suit your lifestyle. In some cases, additional testing may be necessary, due to your medical history or the discussion of your symptoms. The fact is that the need for hormone replacement therapy should be carefully assessed before treatment is deemed necessary.
