WHAT IS BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE THERAPY?
Your body relies on hormones to control growth, as well as support digestion, brain functions, sleep patterns, and sexual activity. When changes in your body occur, some symptoms can interrupt your comfortable way of living and dramatically impact your life. To address these issues, our team at HEALOR Primary Care offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to men and women who need to achieve a balance that allows the body to function properly. Anyone who suffers from symptoms of hormone imbalance can find relief from trusted bioidentical hormones, plant-based supplements, and other products we may prescribe. Our concern for our patients’ well-being extends to improving their quality of life by utilizing proven, natural methods. If you've noticed certain symptoms (such as fatigue, headaches, depression, or lowered libido) having a negative effect on your life, reach out to our Las Vegas, NV office and schedule your consultation with one of our skilled primary care physicians.

"The staff at HEALOR are professional and efficient. Their communication is top-notch and I love the office’s use of technology. Eriko (physician assistant) was especially excellent. I am a new patient with a series of health issues. She was very attentive and asked questions (did not make assumptions). Even though it’s the first visit, I feel I was heard and I feel I will be in good hands at this office."- A.S. / Google / Jan 26, 2022
"I’ve had a really great experience here getting Hormone Replacement Therapy (testosterone) with Dr. Raj Singh and Dr. Eriko Yutani. All my concerns and questions are answered, and my bloodwork and levels have been monitored closely to make sure I’m getting the right dose for my body. The wait times here are quick as well, and my chosen name has always been used whenever I come into the office which is very appreciated!"- H.P. / Google / Feb 18, 2022
"Started going here a few months ago after a car wreck because I liked the internist I saw in the hospital. Due to my scheduling I ended up seeing a different physician and liked her so much I've made her my primary doctor. This place cares about it's patients!! I had great service from the staff and the physician."- L.H. / Google / Dec 16, 2021
"I have battled with the ongoing effects of exogenous Cushing’s Syndrome for five years now. As a result of Cushing’s (and aging), my hormones and immune system don’t function as they should. Weight gain is one of the most pernicious issues that have plagued me post-Cushing’s. Under Dr. Singh’s expert care and his team in the weight loss program, I’ve not only lost weight, I look and feel much healthier than I did a couple of months ago. There are good doctors and there are gifted ones. The difference between the two can be life changing. Seeing Dr. Singh was one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. I cannot recommend Dr. Singh and his team at HEALOR enough."- R.A. / Google / Jan 30, 2022
