A Look Into Our Practice

At The Hormone Center, we focus on the cause, not the symptom. We are an integrative medical practice and we put our clients first.

  • We begin with a detailed questionnaire to help our medical providers to get a better more comprehensive understanding of your symptoms. This questionnaire also helps us to determine if your symptoms are hormone related and if we can help you.
  • Our medical providers utilize this questionnaire and the health history that you provide at your initial appointment to determine the testing that they would like to prescribe.
  • We prescribe thorough  blood and saliva testing to get a picture of your endocrine function. 
  • Our providers will then utilize these results to establish a treatment plan to address any dysfunction, imbalance or nutritional deficiencies.
  • Our treatment plans consist of a combination of traditional medicine, integrative medicine, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and high-quality nutraceuticals.

A Doctor's Journey

I started to realize something was wrong when I saw a patient who was on 10 medications. The first five dealt with ailments while the second five were for the side effects of the first five. Despite the medications, the patient didn't feel any better. This was the beginning of my inquiry into another way to practice medicine.

I have never felt better. PMDD was taking over and I needed help fast. They check so many levels that no other doctors would look at. I can’t recommend this place enough.

This was my first time at The Hormone Center. The staff was super friendly and they discussed pricing and my goals with me prior to starting any portion of the injection process. My injector was Mia and not only did she have immense knowledge on all the services there, she also focuses on making sure the filler is placed strategically so it is evenly spread out and will not migrate passed the Vermillion border(the edges of the lips), as many people experience this when getting lip filler incorrectly. She also didn’t go overboard being it was my first time! It was a clean, safe, and comfortable experience. I will definitely be back!

I've been going to Dr. Loya since October 2009. She has taken excellent care of me and changed my life for the better in so many ways. Her depth of knowledge, compassion, patience, and determination to get to the root of the problem are true and valuable assets to every one of her patients. I simply can not recommend her highly enough.

Lauren made my first Botox experience so comfortable and easy!! She was so professional and personable throughout my appointment. I would definitely recommend seeing Lauren Humensky if you are a first time or returning customer. She’s the best!

Dr. Loya has helped me get through a very rough time in peri-menopause and now moving into menopause. I cannot recommend this office highly enough! It is expensive- she does not take insurance- but will provide the codes to your services and you can hopefully get your insurance company to cover some of the cost. It works out to be around 100-120/month when you break it all down- not covered. I would be a mess without my natural hormones and supplements she prescribes- it is all through blood work and saliva testing and is extremely thorough. If you do not live in Pittsburgh (as I now do not) you can do telemedicine- it's amazing. I wish all women could have access to such care going into and through change of life- it has fixed nerve pain, night sweats, vertigo, you name it- all over the course of 5 years right now. If you experience such issues, please call her office now and get an appointment- I promise it will change your change of life experience for the better!
