Loren Frankel, M.D. – Charleston Bioidentical Hormones

Dr. Loren Frankel understands the realities of motherhood, her medical practice, Palmetto Women’s Health, focuses on providing a family-friendly atmosphere.

Established in 2007, the practice, located in beautiful Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, offers a broad range of obstetric and gynecologic services to its patients. Dr. Frankel, a mother of three, is the only physician in the practice, and she likes it that way.

“I’m glad to tell people that I am the only physician because it takes away a lot of confusion patients feel when there are multiple doctors,” she commented. “You’ll see me every time you come in and not a different doctor you’ve never met before. That can be disconcerting for some women.”

Dr. Frankel can offer her patients the benefits of her extensive experience in obstetrics and gynecology. She also is comfortable dealing with infertility and menopause issues and is an advocate of in-office surgery that can cure bleeding problems without hysterectomies.

Dr. Loren Frankel has 15+ years of expertise in bio-identical hormone therapy for women and recognizes that each person’s needs are different. We will work to find the hormone regimen that best fits your needs.

Bioidentical Hormone Specialist, Dr. Loren Frankel concentrates on a preventive medical approach that helps put an end to suffering and effects caused by adrenal fatigue, signs of early menopause, menopause and perimenopause.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (also known as natural hormone replacement therapy) is the treatment of the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause and general hormone imbalance through the use of bioidentical hormones (instead of synthetic hormones).
