Dear Dr. McClintock,
I am writing to express my gratitude for all you have done for me.
You may recall I came to you in late May seeking answers to and help for a myriad of symptoms that were causing me a great deal of both physical and psychological discomfort. Severe mood swings, constant headaches, inability to focus on my work, irritability, weight gain and bloating had turned me and my body into someone and something I no longer knew. I had first (as most women do) consulted with my Gynecologist and my Family Physician. Both informed me that I was healthy (my Family Physician was more than willing, however, to write me a prescription for anti-depressants or refer me to an Endocrinologist).
While it was good to know I probably did not have a “disease”, I still had symptoms that made me miserable. I knew something was wrong with me, but did not know what it was, what to do, or where to turn – I was at my wits end and in complete distress.
Then I found you. You asked me some questions and immediately had some ideas as to what was going on. Through some targeted blood tests your suspicions were confirmed. My symptoms were not only very explainable, but the underlying reasons for them were now known and could be treated! You explained that I was experiencing the combined symptoms of both peri-menopause and long term stress. You let e know that there were safe, effective treatments available that could help me. You explained the difference between “bio-identical” hormones (which you would prescribe) and the hormone replacement therapies prescribed by most other physicians that had side-effects and potential health risks associated with their use. Never being one to like taking any medication, I did some of my own research (the internet and my pharmacist were both consulted) and I was able to verify that you were dead on right!
It only took a couple of weeks after I began taking the medications an hormone therapies you prescribed before I started feeling much better – shortly thereafter all of the symptoms faded away completely. Thanks t you I am once again happy and feeling like myself. You have also helped me to drop those unwelcome pounds that had resulted from my imbalances.
I wish I could reach out to tell every woman who has experienced the symptoms of menopause and been told there is nothing wrong with them that there is help out there and her name is Dr. Linda McClintock. I feel like I’m the luckiest person on the planet to have found you.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Dear Dr. McClintock,
I now have a new way of living. The 1st week was defiantly the hardest, and then as my pants started to fall off it became easy. I would start to feel hungry but I enjoyed the feeling because I was shrinking. The people that know me look at me and tell me I look like a different person. It’s amazing to me that some one would look at me and tell me I look skinny. My family name and the word skinny are never used in the same sentence.
You helped my family as well as my myself by introducing David the trainer to my sister and I. Now we are convincing my father that a little exercise will help him feel better. I have had to adjust to the attention I now get from people, even the ones I do not know. All my friends have been so supportive and complimentary, they are truly proud of me.
I have always know which foods to eat but when I was 50 pounds heavier I did not care so I lost control of my body and you put me on the path. I am maintaining my weight lose now and I know this is the most important time. Thank you for the change you have helped make in my life!
