I found you on the Internet - can I trust you?
We recognize that it’s a leap of faith to entrust your health to a provider you found on the Internet. While the Internet is an efficient way for us to reach prospective patients, it does create some hurdles when it comes to establishing credibility.
It may help to know that we are thriving because we pride ourselves on our integrity and the quality of our programs, products, and services. We are interested in long-term relationships with our clients established through efficacy.
You are welcome to call us and speak with us. We will answer your questions in a forthright manner.
I have done a lot of reading about hormone therapy, but does it work?
Yes—when done correctly, and under the supervision of an experienced doctor.
Our bodies hormone production often shifts as we age, which can cause a shortage of hormones such as estrogen and progesterone in women, and testosterone levels can drop in both women and men.
Hormone therapy is not a fanciful search for the fountain of youth. It is medical science at its best. The hormones Dr. Gal will use are chemically identical to the hormones your body naturally produces, which is different from those used in traditional hormone replacement therapy made from the urine of pregnant horses and other synthetic hormones.
When should I think about replacing hormones?
Historically the answer was to begin after symptoms appear, no matter your age.
Today we've seen a huge shift in momentum with those who want to begin managing the aging process. More and more, we find patients coming to us who initially want to take control of the aging process early before symptoms have emerged.
If you're at the beginning of experiencing symptoms, or perhaps your symptoms are severe, and you have gone to specialist after specialist to identify the source to no avail, or you want to get a jumpstart on managing your aging process, Hormone Replacement Therapy is right for you.
How are hormones replaced?
Dr. Gal practices Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy ("HRT"). This form of HRT replaces the deficient hormones with the same exact hormone that has been lost, which helps to minimize side effects seen with non-identical hormones.
Dr. Gal will use chemically identical to the hormones your body naturally produces, which is different from those used in traditional hormone replacement therapy made from the urine of pregnant horses and other synthetic hormones.
Throughout our bodies, we have hormone receptors. Imagine these receptors to be a lock and the hormone replacement molecules as the key. Synthetic molecules don't quite fit into the locks right, meaning they don't function the same way in our body—sometimes with severe consequences.
How much of any given hormone will I take?
At Unity Health, we don't believe in a "one-size-fits-all" approach. Dr. Gal spends time with his patients during the initial health discovery to get to know you and their symptoms, followed by a combination of lab testing. This is monitored through routine labs and patient feedback.
Is hormone therapy safe?
When administer correctly there are usually no side effects.
How long must I commit to hormone therapy?
As long as you are getting results, it would be best if you continued hormone therapy. If this sounds daunting, consider the improved quality of life gained through hormone therapy.
How can I be assured that Unity Health Med Spa & Wellness supplements are of a high quality?
After researching numerous nutritional supplements on the market, we have found Nutrascriptives quality to be more than excellent!
Exceptional quality is the foundation of the Nutrascriptives® premium supplement line. We believe that quality cannot be tested into a product, but instead must be built into a product.

Through the stringent qualification of all ingredient suppliers and manufacturing partners, in-process verification of product specifications, and comprehensive 3rd-party testing of ingredients and finished products, Nutrascriptives® distinguishes itself as a leader in high quality dietary supplements.
Can you help me with sexual dysfunction?
Yes! Some may think hormone replacement therapy is only for women approaching or going through menopause. However, it is appropriate for both men and women. Both men and womoen face physical, mental, or emotional hormone-related symptoms of aging.
Using our solutions our patients have experienced a stronger sex drive
Will insurance pay for my treatment?
We do not process insurance as many of our therapies are not typically covered by insurance. We do offer receipts to patients who wish to file a claim with their insurance company.
Will hormone therapy interfere with my present medications?
Actually because hormones are not drugs, it's extremely unlikely they will react with other medications. However, we've seen the opposite! Many of our patients no longer need medication once their hormones are restored to healthy levels.
