full scope of gynecologic care
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone therapy is an option for some women to manage their symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Other benefits of hormone therapy include the prevention of osteoporosis and reducing the risk of bone fracture.
Dr. Eustis personalizes each patient’s treatment, evaluating her risks and benefits to tailor a regimen to meet her needs.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are molecularly identical to the hormones that the body loses during perimenopause and menopause. These hormones are derived from plants but altered in a laboratory so that the molecule is identical to the hormones produced by the human body. The alternative is synthetic hormone replacement therapy, which is similar to, but not identical to the hormones produced by our bodies.
Bioidentical hormones can be given topically in a cream, sublingually (a tablet that dissolves under the tongue), in pill form, or even injections. Dr. Eustis works with each patient to determine which method is best for her. Many bioidentical hormone preparations are made in a compounding pharmacy and may not be available at your regular pharmacy.
Comprehensive annual preventive care with a focus on spending adequate time to address any health concerns, and thoroughly evaluating the patient for any hidden health risks.
Abnormal Pap smear
Evaluation and management of Pap smear abnormalities. When your doctor says that your Pap test, or Pap smear, was abnormal, it means that the test found some cells on your cervix that do not look normal.
Dr. Eustis is happy to evaluate your medical information and/or recommendation for surgery to provide you with a second opinion, or even to answer questions that you may have.

Dr. Eustis is very thorough but cognizant of your time. My telemedicine session was on time and her nurse updated my chart prior to our meeting. During Covid, she discussed whether it was necessary for me to have some of my regular tests now or whether I could postpone them for a few months. I find her very easy to talk to. Her staff responds to a patient request the same day so if you need a medication or have a question, it is answered very fast.
I have been a patient of Dr. Eustis for over 9 years. She always listens to your concerns and explains your options in great detail.
