"Dr. Gorman and his staff are absolutely amazing! They are genuinely nice people and go above and beyond to answer all your questions and make you feel comfortable with getting your surgery. I have never been at a doctor's office that is so warm and inviting. I am so glad I found Dr. Gorman and highly recommend him. I would also like to recommend Lauren for your Botox needs. She is absolutely amazing and so sweet and gentle. I love her so much! Thank you Dr. Gorman and staff! Y'all are the best!"- M.W. / Facebook / Feb 06, 2017
"Dr. Gorman and his staff are wonderful. I was very anxious before my first appointment. I had implants in 1982 and really had no problems with them until some pain in 2017. I was nervous that they would be shocked that I had not had them replaced in all those years but instead from the moment I walked in the office I was put at ease....everyone made me feel that it was no big deal and they would take care of me. And that’s exactly what they did. I’ve waited 3 months to write this review I wanted to see if ‘the honeymoon’ was over....quite the contrary I am happier than ever. My surgery was beyond my expectations. I feel like one of the family....Dr. Gorman, Margaret, Megan, Lauren, and Helen have all been wonderful taking care of all my beauty needs."- G.B. / Google / Jul 26, 2018

Am I a candidate for pellets?
Symptoms may vary widely from depression and anxiety to night sweats and sleeplessness for example. You will be recommended to have blood work done which will determine your hormone levels. Once your doctor reviews and determines you are a candidate, we will schedule an appointment for insertion.
What are pellets made from?
They are made from wild yams and soy. Wild yams and soy have the highest concentration of hormones of any substance. There are no known allergens associated with wild yams and soy, because once the hormone is made it is no longer yam or soy.
How long will treatment last?
Every 3-6 months depending on the person. Everyone is different so it depends on how you feel and what the doctor determines is right for you. If you are really active, you are under a lot of stress or it is extremely hot your treatment may not last as long. Absorption rate is based on cardiac output.
How are they administered?
Pellet insertion is a relatively simple in-office procedure done under local anesthesia. It takes an average of 5-10 minutes in total. The pellets are inserted subcutaneously (under the fatty lining of skin) in the upper buttocks through a very small incision. The incision is then closed with surgical glue or sterile tape strips. Patients should not be able to feel the implants under their skin. Hormone implants placed under the skin consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones, keeping a patient’s levels in a therapeutic range until the next pellet procedure.
What are the side effects?
Unlike with other forms of hormone therapy, there are few side effects with pellet hormone therapy. Two percent of patients experience mild acne or facial hair, and less than 1% experience hair thinning. All of these mild side effects are easily treatable.
What if I’m on birth control?
The doctor can determine what your hormone needs are even if you are on birth control.
What if I’m already on HRT?
This is an easy transition. The doctor will be able to determine your needs even though you may be currently taking these other forms of HRT.
