HRT Programs Starting at $160/month!!



Meet Sam Ridgeway

What We Are

  • An HRT Clinic that puts patients before profits.
  • An HRT clinic where experts highly educated on the subject of hormone replacement therapy evaluate a patient, suggest an intelligent protocol, and periodically modify that protocol as necessary to optimize results.
  • A clinic where you actually know the owner and you trust that person's morals ethics and integrity.
  • A place where you finally feel like you actually matter to someone.

What We Do

Our goal is to improve the health-related quality of life for each and every one of our patients.  We accomplish this by providing Wellness Examinations, including laboratory analysis, Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men and Woman, and Nutritional counseling and meal plans for weight loss and/or  strength building,  at a fair price.

We have an in-house Physician Assistant that does phone exams for health and wellness. We have multiple nutrition plans, run by a dietician, that range from 8 to 12 weeks. We provide ready-to-eat, frozen meals, with our customized nutritional plans. We sell nutritional supplements.

We order lab work through LabCorp and Quest.

We use telemedicine so that you can manage your appointments using our simple technology, in most cases, never having to physically visit our offices!
