Dr. Perez is a certified practitioner with BioTe. We replace hormones by insertion of plant-based subcutaneous (just under the skin) hormone pellets. These are naturally absorbed by the body for 3 to 6 months.
Schedule an appointment with Dr. Perez to learn more and discuss if BioTE is appropriate for you.
