Finding the right care shouldn’t feel like a shot in the dark.
It’s time to get your vitality back.
Have you ever felt let down by your body?
Or maybe wondered what was happening to you as the years go by? Why things just aren’t the same as they once were?
As a busy, working mother of four kids, I was exhausted, overwhelmed, out-of-shape and the idea of initiating sex with my husband was definitely not on the top of my to-do list. And I was only in my 30s!
Something had to give, and I didn’t want that something to be me. My passions had always included nutrition, fitness, and all things self-improvement. I knew if I dug hard enough, I could find the answers. So I did.
And now I get to spend my days sharing the joys (and the how-tos) of gaining BACK control of your body. While I did my residency training in anesthesiology, this journey led me to certifications in Age Management Medicine, Anti-aging Medicine, Hormone Replacement Therapy, and Nutrition.
With this expertise, I have the privilege of helping men and women rediscover themselves as they learn the lifestyle and medical components of living a healthy, long, enjoyable life. I am wholly committed to excellent patient care while honoring each individual as unique, with his/her own personal goals and needs.
I treasure the conversations I have with all my patients, and I know the topics can be awkward to discuss. This is why I work especially hard to have a private, relaxing environment comfortable for all.
Along this journey, I have learned many important lessons. And since experiencing the loss of my own marriage, I have developed a special place in my heart for marriages. One of my favorite parts of my job is having the privilege of working with couples.
I get to be a part of helping them get closer and more connected by rediscovering and fostering a healthy sexual relationship-even long after the empty nest.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take insurance?
Our office does not work with insurance companies as we want to be as transparent as possible about pricing. This allows our patients to know exactly what things will cost each step of the way with no surprises. Insurance can be tricky in this regard, and frankly, it doesn’t help reduce the cost of most of our services. In fact, our cash prices on labs often save our patients hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars.
What brand of pellets do you use?
Testosterone pellets, with one FDA-approved exception called Testopel, are compounded in a specialty compounding pharmacy. They, therefore, are not branded. Choice of compounding pharmacy is critical in pellet quality and consistency, and for that reason, AgeWell uses strict criteria when choosing where to source pellets. Our pellets are of the highest quality containing only testosterone and a small amount of cholesterol as a binder to help them hold shape. You may have heard of pellet “brands,” but these names refer to the program around which a provider may follow to dose hormones or offer supporting additions to the therapy, rather than the brand of pellet itself. This means that you can have received hormone pellets in the past without success and could still benefit from pellets in the future with a different dosing approach.
I had a bad experience with pellets, can I still get testosterone?
Testosterone replacement therapy is available in many different forms. Just as nausea medicine can be taken as a liquid, a dissolvable tablet, a suppository, or other methods, so can hormone replacement therapy. There are many different options when it comes to replenishing your hormones, some of which include injections, creams, patches, sprays, pellets, and more. At AgeWell, we are happy to discuss with you the options available and will help you decide which method is the best fit for you. And the good news is if one method doesn’t suit you, changing the way you take your hormones is always an option. There are lots of right ways to replace hormones.
Do you use bioidentical hormones at AgeWell?
Terminology can be tricky when it comes to hormone replacement therapy. First and foremost, we want our patients to have hormones that are fully recognized by the human body. This means we always prefer to use bioidentical hormones over synthetic hormones. It is important to understand that bioidentical hormones are available commercially at big-name pharmacies as well as at smaller compounding pharmacies. There are advantages and disadvantages to each, and at your consultation, your provider will discuss which type of hormone prescription is the best fit for you.
Do you see men and women at AgeWell?
Yes! We are passionate about helping men, women and couples feel their best at every age. We often see couples together in one two-hour long appointment so each patient gets the full time and attention they deserve.
