Our Team

At Carolina Hormone and Health Center, we believe that life is meant for living, not just existing.

Everything we do drives from that belief. We want you to feel your best, look your best, and be the best version of you that you can be.

Our team is hand selected to ensure that each of them believe that same philosophy and embody the culture that we have created over the last 11 years.

Our team has performed over 80,000 BHRT implants over the last 12 years, and we are truly just getting started. It is such a joy and an honor to come alongside you in your journey to optimizing your health. We are excited for what is to come!
