If you are seeking support for menopausal symptom relief, we provide many options that our clients have found extremely effective. Lifestyle and dietary support, orthomolecular therapies, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, etc., can be used when appropriate to create balance and symptom relief.  Many of our providers are considered experts in prescribing bio-identical hormone replacement in Alaska.

All the women's health care providers at Avante provide routine screening services such as physical exams, pap smears, and breast exams. They order laboratory testing, breast diagnostics, recommend pelvic ultrasounds, and refer to gynecologists and other specialists when appropriate.

Bio-Identical Hormones:

Bio-Identical Hormones are hormones that are molecularly the same chemical shape as the hormones the body normally produces. When hormone levels are low, many people do not experience optimal health. By using small amounts of bio-identical hormones, to replace what is deficient, people often feel better, as balance is safely restored in the body. Most commonly patients report, "I feel like myself again."

Bio-identical hormones are manufactured in a pharmaceutical lab. The lab takes natural wild yam (Dioscorea) or soy and converts them into the chemical shape that mimics the body’s own hormones. Compounding pharmacies then use these hormones to create a base for administration. As a result there are numerous combinations and ways of administering hormones to provide the ideal and personalized dose to an individual's specific need. Hormones are available in pill form, topical creams, under the tongue (sublingual), vaginal suppositories, or gel. Bio-identical hormones most commonly prescribed include: estrogen (Bi-Est), progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and pregnenalone.

Patient Testimonials

  • "I love going to Avante...they take pride in patient care and are always willing to accommodate... simply the best.."CSL
  • "I have been a patient at Avante for 5 yrs now, and I have only positive things to say about the quality of the care that I receive from the entire facility. From the smiles at the front desk to the efficient lab techs and all of the staff in between. My health has turned around thanks to the care from Kiki Green and Grant Gibbs. Competent, caring and constantly striving for the newest information available to share with me. They embody the best in what I want in Holistic and Modern Medical care - JH 
  • "I came to Avante about 8 months ago when I was looking for a doctor after moving to Alaska, my husband and I saw Dr. Jana.  We were pleased with the office and esp. the care we received from Dr. Jana. It feels good to leave a doctors office not loaded down with lists of new medicines but  positive thoughts of lifestyle changes that will produce better health. I started seeing Tina at the first of November and two days after the first acupuncture treatment I was in the least amount of pain in over 25 years.  Believe me I have tried many different medical treatments some with more success than others.  I am so encouraged to look forward to more mobility and greater health! I feel younger and more energetic. Thank you Avante.  I also love the patient portal and have found that the staff always responds to my online questions." - PM

The place is beautiful and welcoming, the staff are all very helpful and kind, and the providers, all 3 I have seen, currently Kikki Green and Grant Gibbs, have been intelligent, intuitive and efficient. They care about you and your health. The lab is clean and full service and the nutritional supplements are extensive and high quality.
