HealthGains is committed to exceptional health care and patient education. That’s why we’ve formed a Medical Advisory Board made up of the top medical experts in fields like age management, preventive medicine and regenerative medicine.
Each member of the advisory board has extensive experience in his or her respective specialty and is responsible for creating standards for hormone replacement plans, therapy programs, age management, and procedures. These physicians also help educate and train affiliate doctors in the principles of HealthGains programs.
