Dr. George Gavrila M.D. – Baltimore Bioidentical Doctor
Baltimore Bioidentical Doctor, George Gavrila, M.D. is the founder of ProMD Health in Timonium, Maryland. He specializes in Age Management Medicine, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Aesthetics, and Integrative Medicine. Dr. Gavrila is a native of the Greater Baltimore area and he has spent time studying ways to improve his patients’ health with non-invasive and integrative modalities of medicine that can help patients achieve optimal benefits. One of the ways Dr. Gavrila has accomplished this is by getting to the core of health issues and not only treating the symptoms, and this has enabled him to not only treat illnesses, but to help prevent them.
Dr. Gavrila’s passion and treatment plan for his patients health is refreshing. After moving from lower VA and a long search I became a patient for BHRT. I had been searching for a long time to find someone up here to continue my 6 years of treatment. I have to say Dr. Gavrila has helped to rectify some treatments that weren’t working well enough for me from a previous provider. I appreciate the time he takes to explain his research and he keeps me up to date on the latest and most effective means of treating HRT. He’s very compassionate and engaging. Not something you can always find in a mainstream medical environment. Not to mention his treatment for me has worked out wonderfully. He’s well worth the hour drive!
Symptoms of Hormone Decline in Men and Women
Hormones are one of the most important factors to maintaining chemical balance, homeostasis, and youth in the body, and as women and men age, the body’s hormones begin to decline. For women, the drop in the level of hormones occurs during perimenopause and menopause, and this occurs when women can no longer make adequate amounts of progesterone and estrogen. In men, hormone production takes a steep drop during andropause, and this phase signifies a significant drop in testosterone production. This decreased production of hormones can bring about uncomfortable symptoms for both men and women that may include increased anxiety, mood swings, depression, loss of concentration and memory, sexual performance issues, difficulty sleeping, diminished sex drive, loss of muscle strength and lean muscle, headaches, weight gain, hair loss, and fatigue.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy restores certain hormones to levels that mimic youth, thus reducing many of these undesirable effects of aging. Bioidentical Hormones are identical in structure and function to the hormones naturally produced in the human body. Unlike animal-derived pharmaceutical hormones, they are plant-derived from soy or yams and are absolutely identical to human hormones. Dr. Gavrila prescribes a precise dosage to address and improve each patient’s specific symptoms and concerns.
ProMD Health is one of the first medical practices in the area to offer pellet Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to both women and men to relieve symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Advanced cardiovascular risk assessments and continued monitoring will track progress, and most patients observe improved moods, better muscle tone, improved energy levels, Lower BMI’s, improved cholesterol profiles, healthier blood pressures, better sleep, and complements from their friends and families.
Pellet therapy is Dr. Gavrila’s preferred delivery method for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Every three to five months, a pellet is inserted in the fat layers, usually on the upper part of the buttocks. The pellets have hormone levels compounded precisely for the individual, and they dissolve over time. Dr. Gavrila endeavors to relieve symptoms with the lowest possible dosage. In the initial stages, blood testing is more frequent, and once hormonal balance is restored, testing may be reduced to once per year.
