What Our Patients Say

Cissi and I are offering this testimonial in support of the tremendous work of Dr. Stephen Goldstein and his staff. We have been patients of theirs for two plus years and cannot speak long enough or loudly enough about their part in enhancing our lives. We found Dr Goldstein as Cissi was researching Bio Identical Hormones. We spoke to several providers of Hormone Replacement Therapy and settled on investigating two firms, one being Dr. Goldstein’s. We picked Dr. Goldstein’s practice after talking with Debbie. Her excitement about the results from other patients and her convictions about how our symptoms were a result of hormone depletion were keys to our decision. I have to tell you she was not wrong and neither were we. Read More

I am a 77 year old woman and have been a patient of Vitali-T Med for approximately 2 and 3/4 years. Having replaced hormones lost due to aging, have had many remarkable results, such as my skin is no longer dry,my hair is shiny and healthy. My sleeping habits and strength have all changed for the better. Recently Dr. Goldstein thru a simple blood test discovered that my thyroid problems were not being treated correctly. My primary Doctor was only treating the T4 issue. Dr. Goldstein started treating both T4 and T3 resulting in gradual weight loss and my body conformation changed by re-establishing my waistline. My overall sense of well being is to me remarkable. I am a very grateful patient and sincerely thank him for all the positive changes in my life. -Respectfully, M.Pardue Read More

For many years I served in the armed forces and was stationed on active duty overseas. It was during my last campaign in 2005 where I injured my neck and back. As a result I dealt with excruciating pain day in and day out. I underwent surgery and was subsequently prescribed morphine and muscle relaxers to help alleviate the pain. However, this was no way to live. I still felt pain, and worst of all, I had many side effects; not to mention that I later found out that morphine only decreased my testosterone levels. I couldn't move, I was depressed, miserable, and not sleeping. It was then that I stumbled upon hormone therapy which was a blessing. I instantly felt comfortable with Dr. Goldstein and his staff. They took the time to listen to my concerns, really showed me that they cared, and treated me like a person and not just a patient. Within a week I noticed dramatic changes and by six weeks I no longer needed morphine or muscle relaxants. As a result, my pain went from an 8 out of 10, to a 2 out of 10 after treatment. Within 18 months from starting hormone replacement therapy I lost 25 lbs and went from having 25 to 18 percent body fat. Thanks to Vitali-T Medical clinics I have no gained vitality back into my life and feel like I did when I was younger. I would absolutely recommend Vitali-T Medical Clinics to anyone experiencing similar symptoms. -Dave (Denver, CO) Read More

I don’t know which one of us noticed the changes first, but it was only a few days before we noticed a change in both of us. By the end of the second week we were both in such a different state that we could not believe it. I had so much energy and drive, Cissi was sleeping better and neither of us was experiencing the depressions we had been suffering with. I had not felt this way for twenty-five years and could not stop myself from taking advantage of it. -Donald Mullen Read More

I started hormone replacement therapy two years ago with Dr Goldstein. I have never felt better. He balanced all my hormones and now I have the energy to work all day and still go to the gym. Before I would just come home and sit on the couch after work too tired to do anything else. I had gained 25 pounds due to hormone imbalance and slowing metabolism. All my symptoms are gone and I was able to loose the weight. I have sent several of my friends to Dr Goldstein, and highly recommend him. -Lynn Barr Denver, Co. Read More

At 27 years old I was tired,not sleeping and feeling hot all the time. I had been under a considerable amount of stress and experienced the loss of a family member. My doctors put me on antidepressant's to help with my symptoms. Little did I know that the extreme stress and medications had depleted my testosterone levels. Dr. Goldstein ran a number of blood tests to determine what was causing my symptoms. I received Vitali-T's testosterone pellet therapy and felt better in one week. I am now sleeping better, have more energy and feel like myself again. Thank you Dr. Goldstein! -Justin Bradley (Boulder, CO) Read More

There is no way I could do without it and for that I am forever grateful. -Tim Read More

What Is Testosterone Pellet Therapy?

What Is Testosterone / Hormone Pellet Therapy?

 

 
 
 
 

Testosterone pellet therapy is nothing short of a little miracle pill, and Vitali-T Medical Clinics is proud to offer testosterone pellets to men, and testosterone, estrogen and progesterone pellets to women.

In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be superior for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance, all with minimal side effects.

Testosterone Pellet InjectorTestosterone Pellet Administration

Hormone pellets are concentrated, pressed, and fused into tiny cylinders that are implanted under the skin, typically in the upper buttock area. Vitali-T Medical Clinics only uses pellets from a certified, compounding pharmacy, that have undergone rigorous third-party testing for sterility, potency (strength), efficacy and for endotoxins/toxins. Pellet therapy affords the practitioner the flexibility to tailor the treatment to each patient’s individual needs rather than using a “one size fits all” approach.

Testosterone, Estrogen, and Progesterone pellets are available in a wide range of strengths that allows our well-trained physicians to individually optimize your hormone levels to attain maximum health benefits. Once implanted, hormones are released at a consistent level, mimicking the bodies own natural endocrine system, and last for approximately 4 months.

Where Does The Testosterone Come From?Testosterone compounded pellets

Derived from soybeans and yams, these pellets are biologically identical to human forms of testosterone, making for a much more natural and effective integration into the patient’s system. They are also completely biodegradable which allows them to be absorbed without leaving an irritating residue.

Because of their steady and slow time-release dosing, minimal side effects and biological similarity to the body’s natural hormones, these pellets truly are the ideal option when it comes to hormone replacement therapy.

 

Testosterone Pellet Benefits:

  • Increased Energy
  • Increased Sex Drive
  • Increased Lean Muscle Mass
  • Depression Relief
  • Anxiety Relief
  • Increased Memory Retention
  • Improved Sleep Patterns
  • And much more…

Patients often begin to feel the effects of the pellet implants within the first 24 – 72 hours with full results occurring in less than three weeks. Click here to read our patient testimonials.

 

FAQ’s About Hormone Pellets:

What are hormone pellets?

Pellets are naturally derived from yams or soy and pressed into small cylinders roughly the size of a grain of rice.

Why is pellet therapy prescribed over other hormone therapies?

Unlike other forms of hormone therapy, pellets allow for a slow and steady release of the hormone being administered over approximately a 4 month period, helping to avoid the hormone peaks and valleys experienced with topical or oral treatments. They are also bioidentical to human hormones, and therefore do not increase the risk of blood clots associated with conventional or synthetic hormone replacement therapy.

How long do the pellets last?

Pellets typically last from 3-4 months in women, and 4-5 months in men. The pellets completely and naturally dissolve on their own; so there is never any need to have them removed.

How long until patients feel the effects of the pellets?

Patients often feel the initial effects of the pellets within the first 24-72 hours, with full results within 3 weeks. The efficacy of the treatment depends largely on the diet, lifestyle and stress levels of the patient.

Are hormone pellets safe?

Providing hormone therapy that is safe is the number one priority for Vitali-T. Our staff takes extra precautions to ensure that the pellets we use are as safe and effective as possible. All of the treatments/therapies that are offered through Vitali-T Medical Clinics are extensively and thoroughly tested for safety, efficacy and quality. Vitali-T will not, under any circumstance, compromise our patient’s safety and care for anything else.

Does pellet therapy have any side effects?

Because of their natural and bioidentical nature, pellets have very few side effects. Some patients may experience breast discomfort or nipple tenderness that usually disappears in several weeks. In very rare occasions the implant site may become inflamed or mildly infected and responds to antibiotics. There is also an occasional increase in facial hair growth or mild acne, which is easily managed and alleviated with adjustments to dosage.

How are hormone levels monitored during treatment?

We monitor hormone levels by drawing labs before treatment begins. Tests typically include, but are not limited to, PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) in men, Testosterone, LH (luteinizing hormone), blood count, liver profile, Thyroid hormones (TSH), Vitamin D, DHEA, Vitamin B-12 and Estrodial. Testing in women may also include FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone), and Progesterone.

Blood and hormone levels are typically retested up to three times per year. The frequency of hormones testing depends on the needs and treatment plan of the individual. This allows our practitioners to ensure that hormone levels are optimal for each patient.

Men must also obtain a digital rectal exam once a year to monitor their prostate levels. Women are advised to undergo annual mammogram and PAP smear testing as determined by their gynecologist, and continue with monthly self breast exams.

Will insurance cover pellet treatment?

Some insurance companies cover the cost of treatment while others do not. You will have a better chance of being reimbursed if you have an insurance plan other than an HMO (Health Maintenance Organization). Please note that we do not take or file insurance however, we will support you in submitting a claim to your insurance company by providing you with paperwork, paid receipts, proper insurance codes,and other necessary documentation. This paperwork can also be used when submitting claims to your Flexible Health Care Spending Account. It is recommended that you contact your insurance company prior to treatment to see if they reimburse.
