Daily it seems someone will remark to me -”I’m not really at midlife yet. I’m still having my menstrual cycles” or “I’m past midlife; I stopped having my menstrual cycles
The Midlife Wellness Center was designed to offer the extensive health evaluation, as well as intense education, not usually possible at a routine annual medical exam. Brenda S. Smith, M.D., a board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist, will help
Dear Fellow Women,
Early in my medical career I noticed that women at midlife (30-60's) were suffering a decline in their health, but were mostly ignored due to time restraints in the typical medical office. Being a woman myself, I developed a real passion for filling this void in medicine. I began to extensively study the problems women face at midlife and I learned from carefully listening to my patients. In 1993 I was the first physician in Kansas City to begin prescribing bioidentical hormones. In 2005 my love of solving the problems you and I face at midlife resulted in my opening the Midlife Wellness Center. This is the only center in Kansas City devoted to helping midlife women achieve vibrant health.
At the Midlife Wellness Center it is my privilege to offer my unique services to women. I tell every patient "I am so glad you are here" and then I proceed to give individualized time and attention, provide in-depth evaluations and help formulate a comprehensive, personalized Wellness Plan. This is the way I always dreamed of practicing medicine.
If you're not feeling like yourself anymore, call me. I created the Midlife Wellness Center just for you.
Your partner in health,
Brenda S. Smith, M.D.
