At the Dr Saadia Meyer Clinic the menopause is demystified and put into perspective. From the moment you sit down with Dr Meyer at your initial consultation, our aim is to provide you with a personalised diagnosis and treatment plan.
"After seeing Dr Meyer I have got my life back. I thought I was going crazy and my family thought I was going crazy. I feel my normal self once again".
Dr Meyer firmly believes that since women will be spending nearly half of their lifetimes on the other side of the menopause they may as well be as healthy, active and strong as they possibly can be. She wants to help women make informed choices about how to live this, potentially wonderful and special, stage of their lives.
Her manner is warm, calm and reassuring
"I felt in safe hands. There is so much conflicting advice out there, save yourself the time and confusion and book to see her asap. Personally, it has been transformational".
Face-to-face consultation (45 minutes)
Your initial consultation will be with Dr Meyer. She will ask you about symptoms, medical history, current medication, any concerns and expectations. She will also recommend any baseline blood tests (additional cost).
Bring your ‘Clinical Summary Sheet’, which your own GP can provide. Also, any recent pelvic ultrasound scans (USS), blood tests or relevant investigations.
Follow-up appointment two weeks post consultation (30 minutes)
Dr Meyer will discuss her diagnosis with you and prescribe a course of medication, which our own pharmacy at the clinic will supply.
Review appointment six weeks after commencing treatment (30 minutes)
This is an opportunity to discuss how you are feeling, whether symptoms have improved or stayed the same, or whether you have any concerns. It is important at this stage to bear in mind that any treatment is still bedding in, but you are likely to have noticed some improvement.
Your level of medication may be increased and further blood tests may be required to ensure your hormone levels are being brought back into balance.
"I had no idea that balancing my hormones could make such a difference to my quality of life".
Six month review (30 minutes)
This is a full review of your treatment and how you are feeling. Any underlying issues will be discussed and appropriate changes to your treatment prescribed. A pelvic USS may be booked to monitor your body’s internal condition and to spot any unusual signs or issues.
On-going reviews (30 minutes)
It is a good idea to review your progress and treatment plan on a six-monthly basis. Dr Meyer will be able to fine-tune your medication to ensure you continue to experience a full and healthy lifestyle.
"Dr Meyer was very thorough in her investigation and management. I can say that my relationship with my husband is back on track and I feel so much better".
