As a woman & a Sex Therapist, I was introduced to Dr.Judith (Judy) Ingalls, 2 years ago, by a dear friend of mine. I found my need for her services twofold, personal & professional.
Since I found myself recently experiencing side-effects due to hormonal changes: nitesweats, mood swings, fatique & loss of sexual desire (not an option for a Sex Therapist..lol) Judy’s approach with me was one of warmth, compassion & extensive knowledge on menopause. I knew within the first session & the time she took with me, how deeply she cares about womans’ healthcare & specifically their hormones. I sensed her passion for her work!!
I have the utmost respect for Judy’s all inclusive research on hormone imbalance & bio-identical hormone replacment, which she explained, is derived from plants & compounding.
Dr. Ingalls takes an extensive “Women’s hormonal health assessment” of her patients. This requires an extensive bloodwork test of all the hormones. She cheques the estrogen metabolism, androgens, binding proteins along with the progesterone. Once she receives the results she reads them & interperts them along with providing a handout of information for you.
She then makes recommendations on what options are best for you given your imbalance to create a hormonal BALANCE!! This is the most extensive exam & connection I have experienced with a doctor before!!
As a Sex Therapist, I have referred several of my patients & their partners to Dr. Ingalls. She has been a wonderful resource to them with their menopausal changes, giving ‘her awareness of menopause” to better assist them in rediscovery of sexual desire!!
I would highly recommend Dr.Judith Ingalls, to any woman or couple inquiring about bio-identical hormone replacement.
