Hormone Therapy Experts in Coral Springs, FL
Hormones occur naturally in the body and regulate a variety of functions. In women, various sex hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, as well as other hormones like cortisol and DHEA, exert powerful effects throughout life. When any of these hormones are out of balance, they can significantly affect a woman’s quality of life.
Hormone imbalances are common, especially as a woman goes through menopause. Symptoms may include:
- Mood swings and depression
- Abnormal uterine bleeding
- Premenstrual syndrome
- Premenopausal symptoms
- Reduced libido
- Weight gain
- Fibrocystic breasts
- Memory loss
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Vaginal dryness
- Painful sex
To correct hormone imbalances, many women turn to hormone replacement. At Green OB/GYN Associates, we offer bioidentical hormones.
Bioidentical hormones, an alternative treatment option, are derived from natural plant sources, such as yams or soy. They are chemically identical to human hormones and mimic the actions of hormones that are produced by the body. Bioidentical hormones may also have fewer side effects than synthetic hormones.
If made by a compounding pharmacy, hormone combinations, strengths, and dosages can be customized to a patient’s specific hormonal needs. In addition, custom compounded bioidentical hormones can be created in a variety of forms: capsules, topical creams and gels, suppositories, and sublingual troches or lozenges.

I was looking for a new Dr. and after some research went to Dr. Green and I am so happy I did. She is absolutely amazing. Her staff is super friendly and helpful, and she actually took the time to sit with me in my first consult in her office to go over some concerns. She was understanding and her experience gives me the confidence that I am in good hands. Highly recommend it!
Dr Schnee was very professional, caring and gentle. The office staff was also professional and easy to talk to. I highly recommend this Doctor.
When we moved to Michigan, I wished I could have taken Dr. McKenzie with us. She helped me deliver a beautiful baby girl after a risky pregnancy, and I haven’t found another OB/GYN I trust as much as I trusted her. I HIGHLY recommend her!
