Lena C. Shaffer, M.D. – Boulder County Bioidentical Hormone Doctor
Boulder County Bioidentical Hormone Doctor, Lena C. Schaffer, M.D. believes in a preventive and restorative approach to health and hormone balance. When it comes to hormones, she feels they should be restored to optimal youthful levels using bioidentical hormones, which are identical in molecular structure to those your body produces.
Lena C. Schaffer, M.D. specializes in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), and she treats both women and men. She will begin your consultation by checking blood hormone levels, followed by an extensive review of your symptoms and medical history.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Treatment Plan
Because no two patients are alike, the treatment plan for each patient will be different. Thus, if hormone replacement therapy is needed, it is definitely not a “one size fits all” approach.
Bioidentical hormones can be given using static or cycled (“biomimetic”) dosing. Dr. Schaffer offers both options. For those interested in “biomimetic” dosing, Dr. Schaffer is a Wiley Protocol certified physician.
Because she wants her patients to feel better as quickly as possible, Dr. Schaffer closely monitors each patient once they begin hormone replacement therapy, so she can make dosage adjustments as needed, based on symptoms. She also checks labs periodically to assure hormone levels are in the optimal range. She encourages patients to call her at any time with questions or concerns.
Dr. Schaffer is truly passionate about this area of medicine, and has experienced first-hand the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. She looks forward to helping you feel your best.
