Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

Testosterone can be dispensed in oral, topical form or inserted as a pellet. Pellet is a small, rice size pellet that is inserted in the buttocks area and provides relief for 3-4 months. The best results are usually achieved with pellet therapy. More

Story:

When I came to see Dr. Sultan, I was putting up with a number of menopausal symptoms.  I also had a lot of pain in my arm from a "tennis elbow" injury which just didn't seem to heal and made even handwriting difficult. After seeing Dr. Sultan, my symptoms have gradually been disappearing and now, about 8-9 months later, I'm consistently feeling great, with no symptoms. I've really appreciated Dr. Sultan's dedication and thoroughness as well as his staff's many kindnesses.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

When I first came to Dr. Sultan, I was feeling burned out and experiencing low libido. Treating my female hormones and male hormones, I feel so much better. Recently I applied for long-term health care insurance. They were impressed with my improvement and they gave me health benefits till the end and I was given the premium health rates. They hardly give ____ coverage these days.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

Remember, female and as well as male hormones are extremely crucial to both physical and mental wellbeing

Story:

Before I started hormone therapy, I was an emotional mess. I was extremely overwhelmed, anxious, moody, crying all the time. After I started therapy, I felt an immediate change first in my mood. I started feeling more optimistic and positive. I finally had a sex drive again. And I feel love for my husband like I used to. I come home happier from work and my life is so much better! Thank you, Dr. Sultan, for helping me get my life back!

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

The fact that female and male hormones are essential for both physical and mental well-being is under-appreciated. Consequently, many women in their peri-menopausal and menopausal years suffer unnecessarily and either ignored or given Prozac etc. treatment can be so simple and rewarding
