Atlanta, GA (Vocus) September 19, 2009
Steven A. Rabin, M.D. has introduced a Bioidentical Hormones program that is highly adaptable to individual body and hormonal needs. With the topic of hormones in the news almost every day, it can be confusing to struggle with a hormone imbalance and know what to do.
Dr. Rabin’s approach is to help women to understand how a bioidentical hormones program can provide a suitable alternative treatment option for hormone imbalances. Hormone imbalances are common, especially during the midlife transition. Hormones occur naturally in the body and regulate a variety of functions. Traditional synthetic hormone replacement (HRT) has been associated with unwanted side effects. Bioidentical hormones are derived from natural plant sources, such as yams or soy plants, to produce molecules that are physiologically identical to the hormones made by the human body. Bioidentical hormones are able to perform the actions of hormones that are produced by the body, but they may have fewer side effects than synthetic HRT.

Bioidentical hormones are available in a variety of strengths and dosages.

Bioidentical hormones are available in capsules, topical creams and gels, patches, suppositories, sublingual troches (lozenges), and Dr. Rabin is one of the few physicians in Georgia who has been administering hormone pellets since 1993.

The Atlanta OBGYN clinic’s friendly staff provides women with a thorough education, including the risks and benefits of all products part of the hormonal balance program mix. After a careful assessment and patient input, Dr. Rabin will recommend the bioidentical hormones matching the needs of the individual body. Sometimes it may take a few adjustments to identify the right products and optimum doses. Dr. Rabin is always keen on listening to patients and adjusting the care plan to optimize results.

Dr. Rabin is driven by the passion of getting it right, to find the right balance and exactly meet individual body and hormonal needs.
"Listening to the symptoms and how they affect a women’s life, and her family is as important as reading the lab results, and reviewing the family history. Too often, physicians are ignoring the person sitting right there in front of them and instead tend to treat only the lab reports!"
