NEW OFFICE ADDRESS: 1602 Rock Prairie road, Ste. 460 College Station (WEST BUILDING)
We are NOW offering a new service in our office. As you know, perimenopause and menopause can be a life changing experience for many women (and their family). In the past, our office has helped patients with both traditional as well as bio-identical hormone therapy along with non-hormonal symptom relief with other supplements.
In addition to the above treatment options, our office will now be offering an innovative technology called BioTE®. BioTE® is a time-proven method of bio-identical hormone therapy using patented pellets that are inserted just beneath the skin in the fatty tissue of the hip.

Q: What is BioTE® ?
A: BioTE® is a Bio-Identical form of hormone therapy that seeks to return the hormone balance to youthful levels in men and women.
Q: How do I know if I am a candidate for pellets?
A: Symptoms may vary widely from depression and anxiety to night sweats and sleeplessness for example. You will be given a lab slip to have blood work done which will determine your hormone levels. Once the doctor reviews and determines you are a candidate, we will schedule an appointment for insertion.
Q: Do I have to have blood work done before each treatment?
A: No, only initially and 4-8 weeks later to set your dosing. You may have it done again if there are significant changes.
Q: What are the pellets made from?
A: They are made from wild yams and soy. Wild yams and soy have the highest concentration of hormones of any substance. There are no known allergens with wild yams and soy, because once the hormone is made it is no longer yam or soy. BioTE Medical only uses American FDA outsourcing compounded pharmacies to fulfill its pellet orders for patients.
Q: How long will the treatment last?
A: Every 3-6 months depending on the person. Everyone is different so it depends on how you feel and what the doctor determines is right for you. If you are really active, you are under a lot of stress or it is extremely hot, your treatment may not last as long. Absorption rate is based on cardiac output.
Q: Is the therapy FDA approved?
A: What the pellets are made of is FDA approved and regulated, the process of making pellets is regulated by the State Pharmacy Board, and the distribution is regulated by the DEA and respective State Pharmacy Boards. The PROCEDURE of placing pellets is NOT an FDA approved procedure. The pellets are derived from wild yams and soy, and are all natural and bio-identical. Meaning they are the exact replication of what the body makes.
Q: How are they administered?
A: Your practitioner will implant the pellets in the fat under the skin of the hip. A small incision is made in the hip. The pellets are inserted. No stitch is required. Within seven to ten days after your pellet insertion, Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) begins to take full effect, and BioTE Medical patients can truly experience the benefits of this revolutionary method of treatment.
Q: Does it matter if I am on birth control?
A: No, the doctor can determine what your hormone needs are even if you are on birth control.
Q: Are there any side effects?
A: The majority of side effects are temporary and typically only happens on the first dose. All are very treatable. There are no serious side effects.
Q: What if I am already on HRT of some sort like creams, patches, pills?
A: That is an easy transition. The doctor will be able to determine your needs even though you may be currently taking these other forms of HRT.
Q: What if I have had breast cancer?
A: Breast cancer survivors and/or those that have a history of breast cancer in their family may still be a candidate; however, this is to be determined by the physician. You should schedule a consultation with the doctor.
Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Because of their essential role in the body, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body. There are a variety of symptoms of hormone imbalance in women including:
There are many conditions that may be able to be lessened through the benefits of BHRT. Studies have shown that female hormone replacement therapy benefits may include relief from the symptoms of menopause, low mood, anxiousness, low sex drive, decreased bone density, abnormal heart conditions, PMS, and many other conditions. Female hormone replacement therapy benefits also include a return to hormone balance and peace of mind.
What Is Hormonal Imbalance?
A hormonal imbalance can occur at any point in a man’s life—even in his early 30s. Symptoms can be brought on by stress, an acute injury, illness, poor nutrition, inadequate exercise, and a host of other factors. Having too much or too little of just one hormone can have ramifications throughout the body, so it’s important to know the indicators of male hormone imbalance, such as low testosterone.
What Are the Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance in Men?
The most common symptoms of hormonal imbalance in men are often disregarded until they impact quality of life so severely that treatment is aggressively sought out. Some of the symptoms of hormonal imbalance in men include:
Our research has shown, hormone replacement therapy may help relieve the symptoms of a hormone imbalance in men, including fatigue, sleep issues, weight gain, brain fog, decreased sexual performance, low mood, anxiousness, and more.

Probiotics are living microorganisms, like bacteria and yeast, that reside in our gut and are vital for the body to function properly. However, our contemporary diet and modern medicine have made it very easy for our bodies to lose the most important types of gut bacteria, leaving us to slow down or become sluggish. This is when our hormone therapy supplements may help.
The active ingredient in Serene, DHH-B, is a polyphenolic compound derived from magnolia tree bark that exerts neuroprotective and anxiolytic properties through a variety of mechanisms. DHH-B helps relieve feelings of anxiousness and may also help inhibit stress-inducing hormones like adrenaline and cortisol.
Serene may also help support a healthy body and mind by delivering powerful antioxidant support, which may also help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress.
