Since 1996, Oakdell Pharmacy has made it not only a goal, but a significant part of who we are to help men and women find answers to their hormone imbalances with treatment options. To help achieve this goal, we created the Oakdell Pharmacy Wellness Center at our Medical Center Location.
The purpose of the Wellness Center is to educate patients and practitioners about different treatment options as it relates to hormone replacement therapy.
At the Wellness Center you will find private one on one consultations with our clinical pharmacist, who is a Bio-Intentical Hormone Replacement Specialist. Our Wellness Center will provide you with resources to achieve the best clinical outcomes. Call to speak to our Wellness Coordinator to see how bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can benefit you.
Here are some examples of what you will find at the Wellness Center:
Educational materials and books that cover a variety of health topics including natural compounded hormones, nutritional supplements, diet and nutrition are available for purchase.
2. Testing Hormones (Saliva and/or Blood)
Gold standard for BHRT topical cream users. Saliva kits can be purchased without a prescription. Testing is performed in the privacy of your own home. Call us today to find our more about which hormones can be tested.
