All of us, at some point in our lives, will need hormone therapy. Most of us wait until we start seeing our bodies aging and begin to experience health issues. But current medical thinking is that it’s better to visit a bioidentical hormone doctor before you experience issues.
Fortunately, we have Dr. Thomas Fliedner, M.D., who practices in both Flower Mound and Lewisville. Men and women drive from all over the Metroplex to be treated by him.
Top Bioidentical Hormone Doctor
Dr. Fliedner was one of the first physicians in the Flower Mound and Lewisville areas to adopt the use of bioidentical hormones in his practice, and he has over 20 years of experience. He is a Board Certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist and has been recently honored by BioTE bioidentical hormone providers for being the leading BHRT provider in both Flower Mound and Lewisville. Dr. Fliedner has delivered more bioidentical hormone therapy than any other Ob-Gyn in our area.
What Is A Bioidentical Hormone Doctor?
A hormone doctor is a medical professional who specializes in diagnosing and treating hormone imbalances and disorders. Hormones are chemical messengers that regulate many of the body’s functions, including growth and development, metabolism, mood, and reproductive health.
A hormone doctor can be an endocrinologist, a gynecologist, or another type of medical specialist with expertise in hormones. He works with patients who have conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which can cause hormonal imbalances.
By helping his patients return to optimal hormone levels, a hormone doctor will improve his patients’ overall health and well-being to the point of getting patients off of medications for illnesses caused by improper hormonal levels.

Reviews From Our Patients
Below are some of our Google reviews from the past year.
“I have been a patient of Dr. Fliedner for many years. In November of 2022, he performed a robotic total hysterectomy. The surgery could not have gone more perfectly. I immediately felt better, and if I hadn’t had the small incisions, I wouldn’t have guessed I had surgery. This was the best decision of my life, and I feel so much better. All the issues I had pre-surgery, like fatigue, weight gain, and brain fog, are gone. I couldn’t recommend this procedure and Dr. Fliedner enough.” ~ Dolores S.
“Dr. Fliedner is absolutely wonderful! He is kind, gentle, and caring for his patients. We discussed pellets, and I tried a round and was able to tell within a few weeks that it was working. I have more energy, sleep better, and overall feel amazing! I highly recommend Dr. Fliedner to everyone!” ~ Heather G.
“A couple of months ago, I went to see Dr. Fliedner as I’ve gone through menopause at age 40. He was very detailed in explaining how BHRT works, and I decided to give it a try, and let me tell you: it’s been amazing! I had my first pellets on June 14th and already noticed many positive changes after a few weeks. I no longer have hot flashes during the night, my energy level is much higher, my mood has improved, and my libido is back! 😃 Dr. Fliedner and his staff are wonderful! I just wish his office was closer to my house, but I will continue to drive 28 miles to see him!” ~ Claudia R.
“As a 65-year-old soon to be 66, I had lost my libido. A girlfriend of mine recommended the BIO-T pellet. I located Dr. Fliedner and discussed all of the options for HRT and the benefits of the pellet. I opted for the pellet, and let me tell you, my life and personal relationship with my husband, who is seven years younger, has changed forever! Our relationship is a million times better than it was when we first met 35 years ago! Not only has that made life wonderful, I feel like I am in my twenties again! Full of energy, happy, vivacious, healthy, losing weight, and living life to the fullest! Please believe me, no matter your age or situation, hormones can put you through hell! This will make you feel like you are on Cloud 9! You’re welcome.” ~ Barbie F.
How Do I Know If I Need To See Dr. Fliedner?
It’s never too early to come in and have Dr. Fliedner check your hormone levels. Changes in hormones can occur in anyone, and the symptoms surrounding the imbalance vary according to the errant hormone. In teenagers, hormone fluctuations can cause problems sleeping. For women, a change in hormones may affect menstruation and pregnancy. For men, a hormone imbalance could lead to sexual performance issues.
Here are some signs that you may need bioidentical hormone therapy:
- Hot flashes: Hot flashes are a common symptom of menopause and can be treated with BHRT. Hot flashes can also be caused by hormonal imbalances or fluctuations, such as those associated with thyroid disorders, diabetes, or certain cancers.
- Night sweats: Similar to hot flashes, night sweats can also be a symptom of menopause and may be alleviated with BHRT.
- Insomnia or difficulty sleeping: Hormonal imbalances can cause disruptions in sleep patterns, which can be improved with BHRT.
- Low libido: A decrease in sex drive can be a sign of hormonal imbalances, and BHRT may help improve libido.
- Fatigue: If you are experiencing unexplained fatigue, you may be an ideal candidate for hormone replacement therapy. Dr. Fliedner may recommend BHRT along with some other therapies to address this symptom and help you start feeling like yourself.
- Depression or anxiety: Hormonal imbalances can cause stress, an increased or decreased body temperature, and issues related to the reproductive system. The body’s endocrine system is so exact that even a slight imbalance in the secretion of hormones can make a big difference in how we feel.
- Vaginal dryness or pain during intercourse: These symptoms are often associated with menopause and can be treated with BHRT.
Hormone replacement therapy can get your body back to feeling and working like “normal” again. Dr. Fliedner can evaluate your hormone levels and provide natural and therapeutic ways to get your system back on track.
