Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Bioidentical hormone therapy (BHT) refers to treatment with hormone medications that contain hormones that have the same chemical formula as those made naturally in the body, referred to by many as “bioidentical” hormones. BHT is an essential medical therapy for millions of people. BHT may be used to treat the symptoms of hormone imbalance which include fatigue, weight gain, low sex drive, hot flashes, poor sleep and many more. Imbalances are common before, during and after menopause but can occur in women at any age.
There are many options for bioidentical hormone therapy depending upon your symptoms, medical history and personal treatment goals. We offer in depth hormonal evaluation to determine if BHT is right for you. We also work with only high quality, safe and reliable compounding pharmacies to assure the best possible treatment options and response.

Emsella is a breakthrough treatment for incontinence and sexual health. Emsella uses high intensity, focused electromagnetic technology to stimulate pelvic floor muscles and restore neuromuscular control AND your confidence! This unique technology revolutionizes women’s intimate health and wellness by providing those suffering from incontinence with a completely non-invasive option. Our providers are proud to have a non-surgical, comfortable and highly effective treatment option for incontinence and pelvic floor weakness.
Emsella is a comfortable option for women of any age who desire a non-invasive solution for urinary incontinence. Due to factors such as the body’s normal aging, childbirth, menopause or obesity, the pelvic floor muscles weaken and insufficiently support the pelvic organs. The goal of Emsella treatments is to help women reclaim their body and restore quality of life. Over 200 million people worldwide are affected by incontinence. Are you one of them:
- Do you leak urine when you cough, sneeze or engage in sports activities?
- Do you need to go to the bathroom often?
- Have you refrained from intimate life in the last months out of fear of leaking?
If you answered “yes”, you are probably suffering from urinary incontinence. Emsella is the first device of its kind, and is FDA cleared to treat both men and women for urinary incontinence. One Emsella session is the equivalent of 12,000 Kegels!

Hereditary Cancer (Genetic) Testing
We offer hereditary cancer testing at Northpointe using the Myriad myRisk® test. Blending both genetic test status and personal cancer family history, Myriad myRisk hereditary cancer panel represents the next generation of hereditary cancer risk testing.
Cancer is caused by harmful changes, known as mutations, in a person’s genes. These mutations play an important role in the development of cancer. While most mutations occur by chance or lifestyle and environmental factors; some mutations are passed down through our family and can cause what is called hereditary cancer. Your doctor will review your personal and family medical history to determine if this testing may be right for you.
Laser Hair Removal
We offer Free Consultation, as we know you have many questions about this service. We’ll discuss the area(s) you want to have treated, answer your questions, and help you gain a better understanding of the procedure. Our laser expert will also assess your skin tone and hair type to establish if you are a good candidate for the procedure as well as the pricing options and payment plans with you.
Before your first treatment, it’s important to avoid sun exposure. Your skin needs to be its natural skin tone in order to be safely treated, so no tanning or sunless tanner throughout your treatment.
We’ll need you to shave the day of or the day before your treatment, waxing and plucking must be avoided. Come in for treatments with clean skin-no makeup, lotion, or perfume.
Each area must be treated originally at least 3 to 6 times, and touch-ups may be necessary.
