MAWC Remains In Network With Cigna


Our Cigna insured patients may have received a letter stating that MAWC will be out of network. This is NOT true. Negotiations with Cigna are complete and MAWC remains in network with Cigna.

Our GYN Clinic is now offering Pellet Therapy
(Subcutaneous Bioidentical Hormone Replacement)

Gynecology Specialists is pleased to announce that we now offer an in-office treatment called Pellet Therapy, a hormone therapy where hormones, testosterone and/or estrogen are inserted under the skin instead of using pills, patches, creams or injections.

Dr. Zenette Leao, Dr. Rebecca Ryder and FNP Kimberly Harris have each earned Certification from BioTE Medical in this type of hormone treatment and are now offering this new service to our patients.

Hormone Imbalance in Women
Hormone imbalance in women often occurs without them knowing why. The symptoms can range from subtle to debilitating. Often the symptoms are masked with different prescription pills prescribed for anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight gain, and more.

To know what you are really suffering from requires a testing of your hormone levels. If it’s not your hormones, then we can rule that out. If it is a hormone imbalance issue, we can treat you with Pellet Therapy to rebalance your hormones and get you back to your happy life!

Why we've added Bio-identical Hormone Pellet Therapy in addition to other approaches

  • Pellets are very small and can be inserted in a few minutes and are virtually painless

  • Pellets are custom compounded for your exact hormonal imbalance

  • Pellets keep hormone levels consistent throughout the day and avoid rollercoaster-like effects from orally administered or topically administered hormones

  • Pellets are plant based, contain bio-identical hormones, and use NO synthetic hormones

  • Pellets last 3-6 months

Our certifications come from BioTE Medical
The CEO and founder of BioTE Medical is Dr. Gary Donovitz.  He is a board certified OBGYN and an innovator in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for over 20 years.  Dr. Donovitz has inserted thousands of pellets.  Our staff at Gynecology Specialists have trained with this international leader in pellet therapy, and we are champions of changing healthcare through an individualized, comprehensive method of hormone optimization.

If you are interested in further reading about pellet therapy, Dr. Donovitz has written a book titled "Age Healthier Live Happier!" available from our office or
