Performance Medicine offers many services and we try to be as much of a “one stop shop” as we can. For your benefit, we’ve decided to list our specialties, with a brief description of the service. As we add services for our patients, we will update this page.
You can find most all of these conditions and treatments written about in more detail by Dr. Rogers in our Doctor’s Notes.
Bioidentical Hormones Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
BHRT is for both males and females.
- Do you feel tired and run down?
- Has your sex drive faded or disappeared?
- Do you lack motivation to do simple tasks?
- Do you have excess belly fat?
All of these are potential signs of a hormone imbalance and should be diagnosed by a physician trained in integrative medicine. Doctors of this discipline seek to understand and treat the root cause of the problem rather than putting a proverbial band-aid on the symptoms. People who are experiencing these symptoms are often told it is a part of aging. In most cases, this is simply not true. Our treatments can be lifechanging.
What can BHRT do for you?
- Increase lean body mass, decrease body fat, improve workouts
- Enhance libido and sexual desire, increase energy
- More consistent mood and focus, better sleep, relief from depression and anxiety
- Increase of overall well-being and decreased chance of developing osteoporosis
Forms of Hormone Replacement
The most common forms of hormone replacement are creams, gels, shots, and pellets for both males and females. We have found that most of our patients prefer pellets for their hormone replacement. Pellets give a more even release of hormones over a course of 3-6 months. All are completely bioidentical and safe for all patients.
Our Nutrition Ethos
Most of our diet programs are a short-term ‘reset’ for your body.
After binging on holiday decadence or a lifetime of unhealthy eating, you can utilize our programs to overhaul your tastes and prime your metabolism for a lifelong journey of proper nutrition.
We want you to equip yourself with the knowledge to make a meaningful change in how you see food. Nutrition and weight loss is a journey. In the meantime, we have curated systems to start you on the right track.
In your first consultation, your concerns will be assessed, and we will recommended the right program that will help you reach your weight loss goal.
Prolon is a three-day program. It includes a box of all the food you will need for those days. No cooking, no extra time out of your busy schedule.
Bonus: It can be used to spark stem cell regeneration that can be useful before any surgery.
Phentermine is a prescription-grade appetite suppressant pill that must be prescribed by a provider and administered by a nurse.
This program is a package of phentermine appetite suppressant pills and 4 Vitatrim shots. Vitatrim shots are made of vitamin B12, B6, B1, and B2. Phentermine is a prescription-grade appetite suppressant pill that must be prescribed by a provider and administered by a nurse.
Vitamin C IV
This Vitamin C IV comes in a range of 25G to 100G. Your perfect dosage will be determined by a Provider.
Our bodies use vitamin C in a number of different ways including the production of collagen, stress management, immune system support, iron absorption, and reducing oxidative stress reactions.
Myers’ Cocktail IV
Includes Vitamin C, Magnesium, Calcium, B12, B5, B6, Riboflavin, and Niacin.
It has been found to be effective against acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue, fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, sinusitis, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease and other disorders (1). This is our most popular IV.
Hydration that can help treat dehydration, hangovers, illness, sport’s fatigue, menstrual cramps, and arthritis.
In the office, we call this IV the “Executive IV’s,” because we will have people get them after they take a red eye flight, or if they’re just kind of wound down.
IV Infusions deliver potent nutrients directly into your bloodstream to treat fatigue, dehydration, and illness efficiently. When vitamins are taken orally, only a portion of them are actually absorbed by the body. When you’re really sick or dehydrated, it works about 100X faster through an IV (Intravenous) than through an oral medication (2)
If you are interested in any of our IV Infusions, you must have an initial consultation with one of our Providers and have a CMP (Comprehensive Metabolic Panel) lab test. A CMP tests sugar (glucose) level, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function to see if a high dose of vitamins is suitable for you.
Also, a G6PD lab will be drawn. A G6PD test measures the levels of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD), an enzyme in your blood. An enzyme is a type of protein that’s important for cell function. G6PD helps red blood cells (RBCs) function normally. This tests if your body can process a high dose of Vitamin C.
Then, you may schedule an appointment for your infusion. During your infusion, a nurse will monitor your progress. The time it takes to finish an IV varies, but it may take up to an hour.

Ultherapy & Lasers
Ultherapy lifts and tightens skin on the neck, chin, and brows, and improves line and wrinkles on the décolletage. It stimulates production of your skin’s own collagen and elastin. And unlike other, more invasive treatments, you get real results with no downtime. Initial results can be visible immediately after treatment, but the real results appear over two to three months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting, tightening and improving treated areas.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy—high-frequency sound waves—to trigger a regenerative response that stimulates growth of new collagen and elastin.
The ultrasound technology also allows your provider to see beneath the skin’s surface, map each patient’s facial structure and pinpoint the areas that will respond best to treatment.
While Ultherapy doesn’t duplicate the results of surgical facelift, it’s a great alternative for patients not ready for surgery for those who want to continue building collagen after a surgical lift.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
IPL therapy is for those who have redness, brown spots, or generally splotchy skin.
Additionally, it can be used for:
- Unwanted hair
- Broken blood vessels
- Tattoo removal
- Dark spots from hormonal changes
- Fine wrinkles
- Redness from rosacea
- Spider veins
By using light energy, the laser targets a certain color in the skin to heat it and have your body rid itself of unwanted cells. It can treat multiple skin conditions at one time since it utilizes more than one wavelength of pulsating light. The light does not harm other healthy tissue so, it is minimally invasive.
After the treatment, you can expect a more even skin tone and younger looking skin.
How well IPL works can depend on what you want the treatment to fix.
Redness: After one to three treatments, light therapy can get rid of 50%-75% of broken blood vessels for most people. They could completely go away. While treated veins don’t come back, new ones might show up later.
If rosacea causes your face to flush, IPL can be a good alternative to laser therapy. You may have better results if:
- You’re under 40
- Your condition is moderate to severe
Sun damage: You may see 70% less of the brown spots and redness caused by ultraviolet (UV) rays.
Hair removal: You’ll get the most benefit if you have light skin and dark hair. It may not work at all if you have dark skin or blond hair.
Acne: IPL may help if you have acne or the scarring it causes. You may need about six sessions to notice a difference. Research is continuing.
