Getting Started on Natural Hormone Therapy

1.  Speak to your physician to see if he or she is open to the Bio-Identical Hormone therapy.

2.  Have your doctor order the necessary labs listed below.

3.  Call us at Stark Pharmacy to determine if a consult is necessary.  If so we will need your labs before this process can be completed.  We will then be able to proceed with a recommendation to your physician. 

Once you have an appointment, please fill our the hormone questionnaire for women (click here) or men (click here) to before your consultation.
