May 11, 2020, 7:00 am • 17m
In this episode of Ask A Lady Doc, we talk with Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder of CurieMD, Dr. Leslie Meserve. After seeing her own mother struggle to find a doctor qualified to treat menopause, Dr. Meserve recognized that a majority of the 50 million menopausal women in the U.S. face significant barriers to treatment. These include misinformation, stigma, and a national shortage of physicians trained in midlife women’s health & as a result, three in four women who seek help for menopausal symptoms don’t receive treatment. To compliment our last AALD episode with Dr. Amy Voedish on menopause, the primer, we're answering the next logical question which is, "What's a gal to do if she doesn't have access to a provider who is knowledgeable in menopause care?" Listen in to hear how telemedicine is changing menopause care & how you can easily access board-certified midlife health experts, and, if necessary, also receive FDA-approved hormone replacement therapy medications through CurieMD.
