looking for dr in San Francisco

I'm looking for someone who will prescribe HRT. I have seen several doctors and have heard my hormones are fine (without testing them all), this is "normal" for my age (then 45 now 46) and I should think about soy and flax, or referrals to bio-identical advocates that want to do an entire health screening for thousands of dollars not covered by insurance. I have nothing against natural treatments or bio identical but also do not fear pharmaceuticals when used properly. I have several hot flashes an hour and am getting to a point where I feel like I can't function.

Hello Anonymous,

I can appreciate how uncomfortable you must be with frequent hot flashes, and your frustration at not getting relief.

I cannot recommend a physician who would prescribe HRT for you and who practices in San Francisco. I suggest you contact your insurance company for referrals of gynecologists who take your insurance and are in the area.
Further investigation of these recommendations may lead you to a doctor who will prescribe HRT. Asking your primary care physician for a referral is another option. Talking with family members and friends is another option,
