Dr. Deborah Wainwright, DNP, APRN, ANP-BC, CNOR
Dr. Wainwright is certified as a Bioidentical Hormone Provider through the American Academy of Preventative and Innovative Medicine. Initial consultations with Dr. Wainwright to discuss your symptoms and whether hormone replacement therapy is right for you are free of charge.
Her specialty is Pellet Hormone Therapy for men and women and Dr. Wainwright has performed hundreds of pellet hormone procedures. She closely monitors Thyroid Function as a component of her hormone balancing protocol as well as digestive health and issues that sometimes present because of physical imbalance such as Candida and Hashimoto’s Disease.
Dr. Wainwright recommends pellet therapy in preference to creams, patches and pills because bioidentical pellets, which are administered in office, have proven to be far more effective in hormone regulation. And because they last three to five months pellet therapy eliminates the need to remember to take your medication and the chore of getting prescriptions refilled. The results are phenomenal with patients feeling better within 48 hours of being treated and experiencing better moods, health and vitality consistently.
With pellet hormone therapy your body always has the right amount of hormones- something that cannot be achieved with pills, creams and patches since the dose of those is always the same, even when your body needs more or less than what you are prescribed.

Five years ago, Dr. Wainwright found a passion for natural and preventative medicine and has since dedicated herself to expanding her knowledge as a specialist and expert in Bio-Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy. She gained renown as being among the leaders in bioidentical hormone therapy at her former practice in Virginia. During her time in practice there Dr. Wainwright also authored articles on hormone balancing, thyroid function, and how hormones affect our sleep, energy, vitality, sex drive and moods which you can view here.
Her experience in seeing so many patients that were prescribed creams and pills fail to fully improve because of variance in ability to absorb, the impracticality of having to remember and find time to take all their medication, get prescriptions refilled and apply creams caused Dr. Wainwright to be a strong proponent of the more effective pellet therapy.
