For many businesses, 2009 has been a painful year. Not so for BodyLogicMD. The nation’s largest and fastest growing network of expert physicians specializing exclusively in medically supervised bioidentical hormones has grown the number of physicians in its network since November 2008 – from 21 to 36 physicians – and is in progress to add more physician-owned centers, including one in Puerto Rico, by the end of this year.
In the past year, BodyLogicMD has opened 13 new bioidentical hormone specialty practices around the country, currently spanning coverage in 36 cities and 18 states.
“2009 has been a year of unprecedented growth for BodyLogicMD,” said Patrick Savage, founder and president of BodyLogicMD, Inc. “We’re adding an average of 1,000 new patients each month and are opening new offices and adding doctors to existing locations as quickly as possible to meet the tremendous demand. It’s very exciting to be a part of the explosive growth in this area of preventive medicine.”
Savage attributes the intense demand for BodyLogicMD’s doctors to Americans’ increasing willingness to seek out physicians who focus on addressing the root causes of their medical conditions to help them regain optimal health through a customized regimen of diet, nutritional supplements, and hormone therapy. BodyLogicMD physicians take detailed medical histories of each patient during the initial hour-long consultation, and review the results of comprehensive lab tests and learn as much about the patient’s medical and lifestyle profile to determine the best course of treatment.
BodyLogicMD opened its first office in 2004 and followed with four more locations in 2005. Expansion continued at a steady pace from 2006 to 2008. In January 2009, Oprah Winfrey’s broadcast of three shows on the subject of bioidentical hormones struck a chord with millions of women suffering from symptoms related to peri-menopause, menopause, and other conditions related to hormone imbalances. Oprah.com featured BodyLogicMD.com as the only expert resource for physicians practicing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy – and within one month the company received over 10,000 inquiries from prospective patients seeking treatment.
Men are increasingly seeking treatment for symptoms related to andropause, or male menopause, and now constitute approximately 30% of BodyLogicMD’s patients nationwide. Other factors motivating patients to seek treatment include night sweats in men, extreme stress, libido issues, depression, memory loss, weight gain, lack of energy, and hair loss.
Founded in 2003, BodyLogicMD physician-owned practices make up the nation’s largest and fastest growing network of the most highly trained physicians specializing in natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Integrated with fitness and nutrition programs, BodyLogicMD’s medically supervised programs are for men and women suffering from hormonal imbalance, menopause, and andropause. BodyLogicMD is currently featured as an expert resource on Oprah.com; Suzanne Somers’ latest books “Knockout” and “Breakthrough” lists BodyLogicMD as an expert source, and her book, “Ageless, The Naked Truth About Bioidentical Hormones” dedicates an entire chapter to BodyLogicMD, and Business Week March, 2006 cover story features the BodyLogicMD business story.
