Andrea Lilavois, WHNP-BC was raised in Upstate NY and relocated to Orlando in 2007 to begin her medical career with Florida Hospital (now Advent Health) as a Neuro Critical Care R.N. Wanting to pursue her passion in women’s health, she later earned her Masters Degree and graduated with honors from the University of Cincinnati in 2014. After working at the Volusia County Health Dept., Andrea started practicing at one of the largest women’s health practices in Central Florida, Advanced Women’s Health Specialist in Lake Mary FL.
Over the next few years Andrea realized that many of her patients had been struggling with symptoms related to menopause, pre-menopause, and overall aging. Based off patient feedback, traditional creams, shots, and oral medicine were not working for many of these ladies. Many where even being prescribe anti- depressants to deal with their symptoms! Andrea knew there must be a better way to help these women and found that Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) using the pellet method seemed to provide the best results. HRT has been around since the 1930’s and has been proven to be both safe and effective. After researching the many companies that make Hormone Pellets, Andrea concluded that Biote Medical provided the best and most consistent results for her patients. HRT was the solution, so she completed the training and education and became a Certified Biote Provider.
Working at a large practice with 3 offices in Lake Mary, Altamonte, and Deltona can be challenging for both providers and patients. The sheer volume of patients can cause many unforeseen issues. With a variety of patient care needs, matching the right provider with the right patient was often not optimal. Andrea knew that her patients needed detailed oversight and focus with their ongoing therapy. She knew they needed a provider who specializes specifically on BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. So after months of pondering, consideration, and a whole lot of praying…. Andrea decided that the only way she could achieve her goal was to open her own practice.
