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.

We serve patients In person and via telemedicine

with Secure video consults, on your terms.

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!

Wonderful experience with Dr Loya. My hormones were a mess for years and nobody would help. She took the time to listen and get everything fixed. It was such a life changing quality of life change.

Dr Loya has been a lifesaver with our health issues. She listens & is totally relatable. I am so grateful for her hormone knowledge and her lack of arrogance. Thank you Dr if you see this. We love you

I have been a patient of Dr. Loya's for 4 or 5 years. She is the most caring, compassionate, professional and skilled MD I have ever met. She saved my vacation 2 years ago when my western medicine doc truly let me down. She turned my husband around from being pre-diabetic to just plain healthy. She has also helped other of my family and friends who have gone to see her, each of whose change in appearance and health has been astounding. If you are tired of being handed a pill to deal with symptoms and are ready to find out what is causing your symptoms and are willing to commit to doing what will finally help your body heal, look no further. You have found your answer.
Dr. Loya has been my doctor for the past 8 years. She has been an integral part of my health recovery. I highly recommend her and her office.
