Carolina Hormone and Health Center helps its patients heal from the inside out. With a team of highly trained medical staff, including doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and registered nurses in two South Carolina locations, CHHC is committed to educating patients, monitoring their progress and administering personalized therapies.
“We are a collaborative practice,” said Michael Lord, managing partner. “We listen to our patients and use bloodwork and empirical data to determine what to do for them. We don’t stop at treating symptoms. We focus on getting to the root of the issue.”
Many of CHHC’s patients have been suffering from common yet life-altering symptoms, including body and joint pain, night sweats, sexual dysfunction, brain fog, weight gain and anxiety for some time.
“We are typically patients’ last resort,” explained Amber McClung, CHHC’s Charleston practice manager. “They come to us after having tried everything else. They have tried creams and patches but haven’t seen improvement.”
Many patients feel defeated before they come to CHHC, often considering themselves to be alone and misunderstood. They fear their symptoms may have no solution.
“We educate our patients,” said Madison Jarvis, chief marketing officer. “We encourage them to get involved in their wellness and improvement.”
“The patients are the hero of our story,” Lord continued. “Our patients are brave enough to seek out help for their symptoms. They come to us because we are known to listen and help patients understand what is going on in their bodies.”
An established authority in hormone therapy and complementary treatments for more than a decade, CHHC’s retention rate during the COVID-19 pandemic was upwards of 90%, a testament to the impact the team’s therapies are making on their patients.
“While many practices were seeing a marked decline in appointments, we continued to treat patients during that time frame,” explained Hayleigh Polk, chief financial officer.
“Our patient management continued during one of the most difficult experiences in most of our lives because our patients wanted to maintain the level of wellness we provide. Our retention rate during COVID-19 speaks volumes about the difference we make in our patients’ lives,” Lord added.
From diagnostic testing, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and peptide injections to IV therapy and more, CHHC is a full-service hormone and health care provider. As adult diaper sales surpass infant diaper sales due to the prevalence of pelvic floor and bladder dysfunction in women, the team at CHHC is excited about helping women with life-changing vaginal health concerns find the answers they need.
Additionally, CHHC offers aesthetic treatments, including Botox, fillers, body sculpting, lasers and skin care to complement their patients’ treatments.
“When patients start feeling better on the inside, they see our aesthetic services as a way to improve how they feel about themselves. That’s our why. All our resources and services are here to help our patients become the best they can be right now,” Lord concluded.
