Due to time constraints Dr Serafin can now only offer consultations by correspondence as his work load no longer permits face to face consults. This involves completing a questionnaire which will give us a detailed history of your condition. This questionnaire will be emailed to you on request. Once completed return it to us either by email, fax or post. Often symptoms alone are not enough to make an accurate diagnosis so testing is also often required. The appropriate tests required will be determined based on your responses to the questionnaire and then you will be contacted to see if you wish to proceed with the testing. If so DR Serafin will arrange for the Pathology Lab to post the required test kits direct to your home. The instructions will be provided with the test kits. Once you have taken the test sample send it back to the Pathology lab using the post satchel provided in the test kit.
Once the laboratory has analyzed your sample they will send a copy of the results to Dr Serafin. Once he has received these results along with your detailed questionnaire he will determine the best treatment and email/post you a report with detailed recommendations on how best to proceed with your treatment. This may involve requesting your GP to write a script for a particular hormone combination or alternatively it could involve the use of nutrients or herbs. The doses and instructions all will be included in the letter of recommendation.
Dr Serafin specializes in hormonal imbalances and thus conditions such as menopause, peri-menopause, PCOS, infertility, thyroid disorders, adrenal exhaustion, fatigue, male menopause (andropause), testosterone replacement in men, depression, anxiety, balancing neurotransmitters and erectile dysfunction to name a few.
If you would like to arrange a consultation please contact reception who will arrange to email you a questionnaire. Once you have filled it in return it to us along with any recent test results you may have. You will then be contacted in regards to payment and informed of any tests that may be required.
