Meet Your Hormones and Wellness Team

No one’s excited to see their doctor, right? Wrong!

 

One of the biggest reasons our patients love our office so much is the amazing staff.  Aside from a private, one-on-one conversation with Dr. Carrozzella, you will be treated with respect, courtesy and love by our dedicated staff.

Why do they care so much about our patients? A few of them are patients themselves with their own amazing success stories, but all of them simply love helping people feel better. Each member of our staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have the best experience possible. They are driven by our core values and it shows!

When she went to Dr. C for help, he diagnosed her with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) and began treating her with bio-identical hormones. Within one month she happily became pregnant and in March of 2018, Amanda and her husband Tyshon welcomed a happy, healthy baby girl named Neaveh in to the world.
