At DeRosa Medical, we know that you have a choice in a selecting a healthcare provider and sincerely hope we get to be that choice for you. But, if we are not, and culminating our three-part series on Menopause, the following are questions we urge you to ask your current health care provider:

Do you believe that hormone therapies are dangerous for women? Why?

Have you taken the time to properly learn the date? Are you willing to learn? (If the answer is no, RUN!)

Do you think that taking antidepressants are best course of treatment for my symptoms? (If yes, RUN!)

Are you going to order a full thyroid panel including TSH, total T4, free T3 and reverse T3 as well as a full hormone panel including testosterone, estradiol and FSH?

Do you have experience in interpreting these tests? If not do you know someone to refer me to? Are you will to learn?

When you treat hormone imbalance, do you use bio-identical hormones and non-oral treatments?

At DeRosa Medical, we want you to know that you don’t have to suffer the effects menopause alone nor in silence. We are here to restore your quality of life. We are here to HELP!
