The Institute for Hormonal Balance was founded by Dr. Gary Donovitz. Patients have entrusted Dr. Donovitz with their gynecological wellness and advanced hormone optimization since 1985 when he began his practice in Arlington, Texas. In 2013, the Institute welcomed Dr. Donovitz’s daughter Dr. Mandy Donovitz Cotten, Family Nurse Practitioner, to carry on the practice. The Institute’s goals are to provide holistic health care to males and females alike, and the father-daughter duo understands that hormone optimization is the root of leading a healthy lifestyle. Each patient is treated as an individual and personalized treatment plans are created to ensure that the individual’s needs are met. The Institute provides custom BioTE hormone optimization plans that benefit patients’ quality of life as well as providing long term protection from disease processes. The Institute strongly believes in the importance of a partnership between provider and patient and supports patient input when developing and adjusting treatment plans. The Institute also provides services including well woman exams, gynecological problems visits, contraception counseling and initiation, nutraceutical management, Slim Shot diet plan, and aesthetic procedures.
"I know I still have a ways to go until I am recovered from my years of debilitating health but I know I am on the right path of recovery with BioTE pellet therapy"
"The entire staff at this office aren’t just friendly and caring but they offer the network of support you need!"
Sheri D., Arlington
"I have been a patient of Mandy's for 3 years now. Pellet therapy changed my life. I am no longer tired, my gut is gone, and most importantly I feel like "ME" again. I actually live in Chicago and travel to Texas because I don't trust anyone but Mandy and her team perform my insertion. If you want first class service and incredible results book an appointment! "
"I have had hot flashes for over 10 years and have tried numerous conventional hormones and natural remedies without much success. My sex drive was almost non-existent. I was fatigued and depressed. Almost instantly after my first pellet insertion I found relief! I would highly recommend the BioTE® Hormone Replacement Therapy; it's a life saver! "
"I am extremely pleased with the results of this procedure. Over the past six months I noticed an increased energy level, more restful sleep, mental sharpness and an overall increased activity level. My sexual stamina also improved! I would recommend this treatment to others who want to feel better in every aspect of their lives. "
"Hormone therapy has improved my hot flashes to the point that I have forgotten that I had them! "
"I saw a noticeable increase in energy after hormone therapy which really allowed me to live my life again. "
"There is just no comparison...you think you're confined to a horrible way of life, and after ablation it is miraculously different. "
"I didn't want heavy periods and I didn't want to have a hysterectomy. In 15 minutes in the office my prayers were answered...my periods are so light...I am very pleased "
