We work closely with a number of physicians in the area to provide bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to patients for various reasons.
The most common use is to treat the symptoms of menopause, but many women quickly realize that the hormones can provide additional health benefits when used in appropriate doses.
What does bioidentical mean?
Bioidentical refers to the molecular structure, or composition of the molecule for these hormones, which is identical to the forms available in the human body. It does not refer to the source of the hormone, as coming from a human body. All of our bioidentical hormones are derived from a natural plant source: Yams.
BHRT vs. Traditional HRT
The major difference between bioidentical hormone therapy and traditional hormone therapy is the source of the hormones. The other major difference is our ability, as pharmacists, to provide you with a customized dose to meet your body’s specific needs and your therapeutic goals. The Food and Drug Administration does not allow pharmacies to make specific claims about compounded hormone therapies, but we can help direct you to literature and research that may help to give you a better idea of the advantages and disadvantages of hormone therapy selection.
Saliva Testing & Consultations
We offer test kits for our patients to perform non-invasive saliva testing in a comfortable environment such as your own home. We work with licensed laboratories to provide laboratory hormone evaluations that can be used by our pharmacists and your physician to determine the appropriateness of hormone therapy.
Our test kits are priced to include a 30 minute consultation, patient history & evaluation, and any additional research required prior to your appointment. Your saliva testing and consultation fees may be covered under your insurance. Ask about your insurance plan today, and we can discuss your hormone testing options.
Good oral health contributes to overall well being. We are able to compound a variety of specialty formulations for dental use. Some of our most popular formulations are an analgesic gels containing Lidocaine, Tetracaine, and Prilocaine.

Pain is one of the most elusive and mysterious conditions known even in the age of modern medicine. Some of the first manufactured medications were developed to ease the pain of soldiers during combat. Pain presents in many different forms from many different causes, making pain management a constant struggle to provide relief. Pain causes undue psychological and physical stress, but when managed correctly may allow a person to lead a normal life.
We provide a number of solutions to pain care specialists to drive at the root of the problem causing the pain, while also providing relief through synergistic, or cooperative, medication actions.
Palliative Care & Hospice
We understand the emotional and physical burden of caring for a loved one in the end phases of a terminal disease. We also realize the importance of providing palliative care pain relief and soothing to patients who may not be able or willing to take medications through oral or invasive routes such as injection.
We can provide unique dosage form to assist with the ease of drug administration for palliative care.
Many people believe that children are just young adults and that is just not true. Children have their own unique characteristics throughout different developmental stages that can present challenges during necessary medication therapy. Children are not always able to metabolize medications as well as adults, though some medications are even easier to metabolize. They often require doses that are commercially unavailable and difficult to formulate from manufactured dosage forms. Allergies and sensitivities ranging from lactose, corn and gluten intolerance to deadly dye, silica and medication allergies may begin to develop, even further limiting the options for even the most talented pediatrician.
We specialize in finding, developing, and testing formulas for medications for children who have no other therapeutic options. We follow a strict policy of using two pharmacists to “double-check” all of our pediatric prescriptions, because we recognize the potential for error when providing medications for children while valuing quality in every medication we provide.

We put our feet to good use, and now it’s time to pay them back for the effort! We are able to provide various solutions to the ailing foot, ranging from toenail fungus remedies to pain creams for diabetic patients.
Often, our podiatric compounds are very similar to our wound care solutions because many patients don’t realize there is a problem until the problem is at its worst. However, we offer patients the opportunity to combine good health practices with simple to use medications in order to prevent ailments before they become troubling.
We share your love of sports, but we understand that overworked muscles and sports injuries don't all heal correctly with time, alone.

Through cutting edge therapies such as iontophoresis and phonophoresis, we can provide treatment options that get you out of physical therapy and back into action.
We love our pets, and we know you love yours too in fact, they aren’t just animals they are family. That is why we provide a wide array of medications for veterinary use only. We work hand in hand with veterinarians to select the most appropriate route of administration for medications that can help your furry (or scaley, winged, etc..) family member remain healthy and vibrant.
Our expertise in flavoring helps to make those intolerable medication dosing sessions a little more palatable.
Wounds produced by violent trauma, bed sores, or the precision of a surgeon’s blade are very similar, despite the obvious differences. The risk of infection is ever present in any wound or opened sore. The human body is remarkably durable in its ability to increase blood flow to healing regions and provide natural pain relief, but in many cases the body requires additional help. In the end, proper preventative wound care can save thousands of dollars worth of follow-up visits and antibiotics fighting a resistant infection.
Various options are available to promote healing, decrease swelling and inflammation, prevent infection and provide pain relief all in the form of simple topical medications ranging from lotions, creams, and ointments to sprays, mucosal bandages, and irrigations. These medications are easy to apply and topical anesthetics can make application a painless experience.
Proper wound care is especially important for patients with vascular disease and diabetes who may already have trouble healing, due to decreased blood circulation. We are able to formulate specific compounds to alleviate symptoms and improve the quality of life for patients suffering from painful, recurring wounds and ulcers.
