  After leaving a successful music career, Michael realized his skill set could be utilized to help people get educated on the benefits of BHRT. “I had pretty much destroyed my own body being on tour, and the hormone therapy that I received in this practice, got me back to a place I hadn’t been in years.” He is now a proud advocate for CHHC as both a partner, and a patient.

My favorite part about what I do at CHHC is working as a co-consultant with our medical team. I get to experience being a part of a team which guides our patients in bringing their lives back to an optimal level.
I never get tired of watching the success stories unfold at Carolina Hormone and Health. I love coming to work every day knowing that what I do points people in the right direction and helps them reach their maximum potential.
I enjoy working in a place where we help people experience a life change. I hope to help individuals have a great experience at CHHC by keeping them aware of how their insurance company is responding to their claims.
