Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONES IN Destin, Santa Rosa Beach and Fort Walton Beach, FL
We use natural, bioidentical hormones in forms of pellets, creams or pills to optimize hormone levels.
Hormones have a drastic effect on the function of our entire body. Very often, both men and women develop hormonal abnormalities that can cause fatigue, depression, insomnia, weight gain, hot flashes and decreased sex drive.
At the offices of Dr. Bawa & Associates, we use the most accurate methods, like saliva testing, to check hormone levels. We can then prescribe bio-identical hormones that are identical to what the human body makes.
Many doctors use Premarin, or synthetic hormones, because they are aggressively marketed, but were never designed for use on the human body. Bio-identical Hormones, on the other hand, are generic, inexpensive and specifically designed for the human body. While Bio-Identical Hormones tend to have fewer side effects, we are conservative, and use only the minimal amounts, limiting any risk to our patients.
We can use topical preparations, pills or even pellets that are inserted under the skin. These pellets are about the size of a grain of rice and they are placed under the skin in the buttock area and they gradually give out hormones over 3-4 months.
While we can prescribe oral and sublingual pills that dissolve under the tongue, the oral route is not the preferred method of getting hormones. This is because the stomach acid digests the hormones and liver breaks them into small pieces some of which are clotting factors increasing the risks of blood clots, heart attacks and strokes. There are studies showing that topical delivered hormones have a lower risk of blood clots, heart attacks and strokes when compared to oral forms.
Types of hormones:
Estrogens: when women produce hormones, they produce not only estradiol which is the strongest estrogen but also another milder estrogen called estriol. This estriol does not bind to the estrogen receptors as strongly as estradiol and might have a lower risk of breast cancer as it does not cause as much cell division as estradiol. When we use BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy) we are able to use some of milder estriol in addition to the stronger estradiol.
Progesterone: Synthetic progesterone or Provera is very different from the natural hormone progesterone. This can be seen by the fact that Provera is a contraceptive while the natural progesterone helps in having a pregnancy. Nevertheless, the medical establishment does not know how to use the natural progesterone as it is even over the counter.
Estrogens make the uterine lining divide and get thicker while progesterone make them mature. That is why women who are on estrogens and have a uterus have to be on provera. However, the natural progesterone is better than provera and there are studies showing that the natural progesterone might also counter the cell division of breast and fat cells caused by estrogen.
Progesterone is also the feel good hormone that is high in pregnancy and makes women feel happy and glow. It drops down prior to a menstrual cycle making women have PMS (premenstrual syndrome) type symptoms. Getting some natural progesterone helps with mood, sleep and even hot flashes.
Drop in the level of progesterone causes women to have their menstrual cycle. Women who get heavy menses can often get a small dose of progesterone slowing down the bleeding and calming the uterus. Provera, on the other hand, has the opposite effect and often causes more bleeding.
Many women get migraines close to their menstrual cycle when the progesterone level drops down. Getting some natural progesterone helps to prevent these migraines. However, most physicians are not aware of this as most physicians are not taught how to use bio-identical hormones.
Dr. Bawa and his staff attend numerous conferences on anti-aging and hormones and are experts in using natural, bio-identical hormones in getting women and men feeling better.
Testosterone and DHEA: We check testosterone for all men and are finding that many men, including very young men have low testosterone. This might be from exposure to chemicals that look like estrogens and also because fat cells produce estrogens and these shut down testosterone production.
Increasing testosterone helps with energy, muscle mass and sex drive. Replacing testosterone helps these and we are able to use injections, topical preparations and even hormone pellets to help with this.
Hormone pellets are about the size of a grain of rice and these are inserted in the fat in the buttock area. These pellets release hormones gradually over the course of four months when the pellets have to be inserted again. This is one of the most bio-identical way to get hormones and also absorption is not an issue which can be the case with topical preparations.
Boosting Testosterone Production: For young men who have not yet had kids, starting testosterone would impair fertility. Also, some people who have abused testosterone need help boosting their own production. We are able to use clomiphene and HCG to help boost testosterone production. These are used “off label” but work amazingly to boost testosterone production and have seen levels go from 200 to 1000 with these.
Since we do a lot of work with hormones, we have many transgender patients who we are able to help in the transition from one sex to another. We are constantly researching the best and safest ways to help those with gender identity disorder. Call and make an appointment and we can help you with this.
Abnormal Cortisol Levels
Cortisol is a stress hormone, and is normally at higher levels in the morning to aid in waking up. Cortisol levels should go down later in the day, but if they stay elevated, people tend to gain weight. Dr. Bawa checks Cortisol levels four times in a single day to determine how the cortisol levels vary at different times of the day.
With the demands that blood testing requires of your body, saliva testing is the only way to accurately test cortisol levels so often in one day. If cortisol levels are abnormal, a regimen of natural supplements can be used to return levels back to normal ranges.
Abnormal Thyroid Levels
Many people, especially women, tend to have an underactive thyroid. Underactive Thyroids commonly lead to fatigue and weight gain. Some people are able to produce T4, the inactive thyroid hormone, but are unable to convert it to the active thyroid hormone (T3).
Most doctors don't check T4 and T3 levels, however these levels can assist in providing a complete picture of the thyroid levels. It's also possible to check several other, more detailed tests, such as Free T4, Free T3, Reverse T3, and Thyroid auto-antibodies to help determine how to optimize thyroid levels.
We are able to use Armour thyroid and Nature throid, which most physicians do not understand how to use these. These porcine preparations contain not just the inactive thyroid hormone, T4 but also the active thyroid hormone, T3. Patients who have trouble converting the inactive T4 to the active T3 generally find that their energy is better with Armour or Nature throid.
Excessive estrogen, relative to progesterone, causes weight gain. Estrogen makes fat cells, uterine cells, and breast cells divide, while progesterone keeps the cell division of these tissues in check. Many women do not make enough progesterone, due to either unsuccessful ovulation or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
In PCOS, hormones are not released from the ovary, but rather form as cysts, and are later converted into testosterone. Supplementing progesterone with a bio-identical cream, helps balance estrogen levels to reduce estrogen dominance.
Oral progesterone is digested by the stomach acid and liver, and does not work as well as the topical or pellet forms. We at Dr. Bawa and Associates are able to use topical progesterone and even progesterone in pellets that are inserted under the skin to help with PCOS and estrogen dominance.
Met with Rhonda Leach, for the first time! Fabulously attentive! Thank you!
I am happy with the treatment I receive. This visit was for allergy shots only and the nurse, Wanda, is always great!
Dr.Bawa is kind and competent. He and his staff are easy to like. I recommend Dr Bawa's clinic.
Rhonda was wonderful!!!!!
Everyone was very friendly and was seen right on time. Great
Great Dr, fulfilled my spectations and more. All the treatment was explained step by step, and getting the result I wanted.
Me and my wife's visits to Dr Bawa's office and the interaction with the PAs have been a relief. They are very knowledgeable and caring. I would highly recommend his office..
I haven't seen Dr. Bawa, but the nutritionist that is working with us. She is very pleasant and upbeat. Encourages us on. She also listens to what we have to say about the medication we are on. If it is working or not. My husband has been great with his, but she has a challenge with me because of my meds. I have only been on this one for a week so I don't know how it will work. The only thing discouraging was how much more I had to lose to get the cool sculpting. I don't think I will make it. That disappoints me, but nothing I can do about it. I will lose what I am able with my problems.
I really like the staff they have there now! They are very caring and really listen to us the patients. When you are dealing with multiple issues and doctors, it's important that my Primary Care physician office understands the entire picture.
Healthy and wise about it. Listen to what he tells you and evaluate with him. Very collaborative basic health is critical. I feel better and better and am aware of more than ever.
Dr. Bawa has a special attention to detail, he recounts every concern you have, and offers solutions and choices rather than making decisions for you. Very patient-centered care.
Great! Quick and Easy!
Great staff. Very satisfied with Dr. Bawa. I would recommend this office to anyone.
I (Sandra Kehl), was very nervous, but everyone in the office made me feel so much at ease. Cheryl was so caring and understanding, I will recommend this office.
Love Dr Bawa!!!! Awesome staff
Great staff and service.
I was able to get treatment even though I had never been there before and didn't have an appointment. They managed to work me in. I was so grateful as I was in pain. I would definitely recommend Dr. Bawa and his staff.
Great doctor and cares about his patients
The most friendly, caring and professional staff I've ever experienced.
The staff gives the very best care .
Good, in-depth analysis of my lab results. Elizabeth spent a great deal of time explaining the factors behind my numbers. Excellent appointment!
Fantastic staff!! Last minute appointment for this Alabama vacationer. Attentive & so sweet! Elizabeth ROCKS!
My experience was awesome and very professional and they take their time and explain everything to you. Great visit and I love the staff and they were very efficient. Awesome!!!
Nurse practitioner and PA's and staff are awesome, very knowledgeable, helpful and caring!
I have been seeing Dr. Bawa for about 1 1/2 years, always had good experiences. My diabetes is under control, more than I thought was possible in a matter of a few month's now. I have been seeing Janet Reeve's ARNP, for the last few month's now, I feel that between Dr. Bawa and Janet Reeve's ARNP, I have some of the best quality care that is available. The office staff are great, so what a complete Clinical setting on my side now. Janet, you are a great find, I really appreciate you. Thank you
Elizabeth is great!😊
At 70 i finally picked my first doctor. Even though i told him i did not like doctors he proceeded to help me with problems i knew i had and some i didnt. Until now i have been healthy but my memory has declined. Despite conventional views that aging and alzheimers cant be treated i have found natural solutions, made one mistake, but now I have a knowledgeable ally. The staff trained me to take blood pressure with my equipment.
I have been Dr. Bawa's patient for about a year now. I haven't felt this good in years. He took the time to talk to me and find out what has been going on. I've lost 70 pounds with his help and I feel better and better everyday. The office staff is also very friendly. My opinion...best Doctor ever!
My wife and I have recently moved to Florida from another state. Dr. Bawa came highly recommended from a friend in the Dallas Texas area. My Dr. in Dallas called Dr. Bawa's office and arranged for my initial appointment with Dr. Bawa. I was very impressed with Dr. Bawa's wonderful staff which from the very first "hello" through to the completion of my initial visit. The complete transition was as simple as a "handshake" with a long time friend, including the very welcoming smiles! Thank you so very much Maggie, Wanda, Kim and Janet! My highest regards to you all for welcoming me into your world so graciously! Michael
Recently moving to this area we had to find a primary care physician. We found this office through a recommendation and were impressed with everyone from the front desk to the medical staff. As new patients our medical history and needs had to be documented and the time spent was more than adequate. there was never a feeling of being rushed and we had a strong impression that our care was important to them. We left feeling reassured that we found a primary care office we are comfortable with.
Felt like someone was listening to me, willing to spend time to figure out what was going on. Five stars when we get results and figure out plan of attack.
Very happy with Dr, Bawa and staff, He takes his time to listen to your concerns and answers question that may be confusing to his client and trys to break things down to our language. he explains the outcome of all tests taken and it reassures what needs to be done to take better care of your issues. Thank you for being my doctor and caring about how i need to handle my issues..
The best experience I have ever had in an Doctors office , Very , friendly non-judging environment.
We are new to the area so we looked for recommendations which lead us to Dr. Bawa's Clinic. We were very pleased with the visit and plan to continue as a patient. Juda Fritts
I just went for my first visit, and was delighted to meet Janet, the PA. She was warm , friendly and astute in helping me toward a solution to my health issues. I'll be back for a wellness exam, am actually looking forward to getting to know the rest of this efficient and charming group.
I'm still kind of a new pt of Dr. Bawa's and I saw his PA in the Fort Walton Beach office. Their staff members are kind and helpful. His PA was great and thorough which I appreciated so much. I will continue to be a pt for years to come.
I always arrive to a pleasant greeting from the staff. Dr. Bawa has always placed forth a sincere effort in helping me with my condition. After visiting 3 other dermatologists I have concluded that Dr. Bawa is the only one that took a real concern and made me feel appreciated for my visit. I highly recommend Dr. Bawa to all of my friends.
I so Love " Christine Briggs, FNP-C " she is awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God must have sent me to this clinic, Lord knows why but she is the only one since I have had female problems to start at the bottom and work your way up to solve the problem. Thank you DR. BAWA & ASSOCIATES for blessing me with such a wonderful person to take care of me. Your staff in amazing, friendly, caring, understanding and human. Thank you to such a great group of ladies at the FWB Clinic.!!!!! Laura Donnelly
AS ALWAYS I AM VERY SATISFIED WITH THE HELP AND FRIENDLINESS OF THE DOCTORS AND STAFF. I FEEL THEY ARE TRULY INTERESTED IN MY HEALTH MENTALLY AND PHSYICALLY
I was treated with kindness and respect. My intake was thorough and lengthy. Checking in and out was efficient and pleasant. This was my first visit. Hopefully my care will continue in the same spirit.
Wait time was no more than 5 minutes! Test done and i was out of the office in less than 30 minutes. Great and friendly service..1
Excellent,Attentive Care!Janet is Great!
Very caring and supportive. Never long wait times
I saw Courtney at the Fort Walton Clinic and was very impressed with her professionalism and bedside manner. She listens well and is helping me regain my health! They took me right in both times I have visited with minimal wait time which is so valuable in this world. The office was clean and all the staff attentive and caring. I am so glad I found this practice!
I was Jill's patient for a long time, and loved her dearly. Then she moved to Hawaii. So sad. Then God dumped Courtney in my path, and I love her as much as I loved Jill~!! I've been Courtney's patient for more than a year now and she is so perfect.
I am crazy about Janet. If she ever leaves, I am following her (provided she stays in the area). You'd better stop abusing her and overbooking appointments. She is compassionate and thorough. Could not want a better practitioner. Other staff are also friendly and helpful. Thanks for the great care.
Dr.green is an amazing being. gives enough time to the patient. and answer each question in thorough detail. thank you.
I have been a patient of the Ft Walton beach office for close to a year and since then I have lost 100lbs.I would highly recommend Courtney Mcgee she is amazing and caring professional.
The office staff at Dr. Bawa's is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I enjoy every experience I have with their whole team. I have been given medical advise that is thorough, understandable, and personalized. Thank you for the great services you provide!
Dr. Bawa and his staff always listen and give informed answers. I like this most about this practice. Their use of online portal allows me to review my medical care as it is populated into the system i.e. blood work results or office visit notes.
I always see the PA at the Seagrove location, and she is very generous with her time and tries to really determine causes vs simply treating symptoms. I see them monthly due to a thyroid condition, and the clinic is efficient, clean, and friendly.
Have used Dr. Bawa for primary internal medicine physician. I find that he is thorough and always follows up. I had to see a cardiologist in the Atlanta area and took a copy of my lab work. He said it was the most complete blood profile he had ever seen. I find the office staff very helpful. Courtney, the P.A., is quite knowledgeable, as well. Overall, I feel that my experience has been top of the line.
I always have had a great experience and pleasant experience at Dr. Bawa's Destin Branch. The office staff is very helpful and informative. Naomi is awesome and always so sweet, helpful and happy. The nursing staff is very helpful and attentive. Laurel, Danielle & Betty always are a pleasure. If you have a question they will go of their way to help. They are happy, smiling and cheerful. Courtney is a caliper above and never leaves anything unanswered. She is extremely informative, reassuring and she is always confident and you just feel well taken care of. They seem to do their best to make you feel right at home and they are focused on making your time there pleasurable and productive. I couldn't imagine anyone in the area having a better staff. Dr, Bawa is exceptional as a physician and taking care of his patients and he is always is as informative and helpful as possible, I am lucky to have a Doctor of this caliper. I would recommend Dr, Bawa's Destin Office to anyone for exceptional care and professionalism for their health care needs.
I actually went to Dr. Bawa's Ft. Walton Beach Clinic. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Dr. Bawa was very educated and helped me make a better informed decision about which medications would work best for me. I had a great experience and I highly recommend this facility!!!
Fantastic staff and Dr. Bawa is very attentive to my health concerns.Finally glad to find a good doctor!!
I had a full hysterectomy at age 37 which put me in full surgical menopause. I had been a healthy petite weight weight for numerous yrs prior to the surgery. I began putting on weight and not being able to lose it afterwards. I had severe Hot flashes and other issues. Premarin and other hormones didn't help and had other unwanted side effects. I'm now 42 and in this last year I did some reasearch and found Bio Identical HRT's to be a much better option. I then researched Dr's in the area who support Bio Identicals. I found Dr. Bawa to be one whom has done a lot of reasearch himself and is extremely intelligent and well informed. He also addresses root causes and not just a symptom alone. It's been a few months and the weight is coming off and I feel so much better. A particular insurance that was offerred to me recently didn't have Dr. Bawa in their Network. I was aksed if I would be willing to drop him as my Dr. My answer is absolutely NOT!. He and his staff make All the difference in the world. They have been very supportive and caring from the very beginning. They all have wonderful dispositions and make the expereinces between patients and medical providors positive. They have seen the changes and have given me great encouragement along the way. You never feel like just a patient or unimportant. I plan to follow up with laser treatments with him since the results I have seen from other patients f his is truly amazing. Thank you Dr. Bawa and your staff for the wonderful care.
I turned 50 in May and have had a horrible time with hormone imbalance and weight gain, low libido, and a feeling of sluggishness. This has all lasted for the last 7 years. In 2006 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. All of this has led to a general feeling of discontent for me, for 7 years. I came to Dr. Bawa to help me with all of this and get me on the road to feeling better. I started with the coolsculpting and still can not believe the results!!! Unbelievable. The coolsculpting rep told me the only thing bad about it was you could get addicted. Well I am! I love it. And i am just so happy with all that Dr. Bawa and his staff have done for me. I have lost 20 lbs since i have started coming to see Dr. Bawa, i look and feel better, but most of all I feel so much better.. Thank you Dr. Bawa and staff! I feel like I am Hilarie again!!
Favorite new Med/Spa
I am so glad I found this place! I visited the medical side for a non-related medical concern and I was immediately impressed at how nice and efficient the office and staff all were. While waiting to be seen Dr. Bawa's esthetician came in to introduce herself and give me some pamphlets about her services and tell me about how great of Dr. Bawa was and how he specialized in hormone replacement and fatigue. She then told me about all of the different service that they offered and I was in and out shortly later. A few days later my hair dresser told me all about a facial she had recently when I asked who she recommended she then gave me this same young ladies information. I am now a monthly spa member and I enjoy my facial and skincare products. The esthetician Ray Anna pays attention to all of my concerns and always has a solution within my budget and I always enjoy visiting with her. I have been receiving tons of compliments on my complexion and I recommend her to everyone who ask.
Laser vein removal
I had a treatment for my spider veins in my legs. The result was great. I will go back for another treatment soon.
Doctor who cares.
I see Dr Bawa every 3 months and receive great one on one treatment. He's thorough and sincere. His staff (Shelly) is great as well in helping me understand my condition. Waiting is usually about 20 minutes. Everyone there has a great attitude and overall experience is positive.
Great Medical Office, everyone is just sooo nice, and friendly
I used to work as a P.A. with Dr Bawa over 15 years ago, and applaud how the staff at Santa Rosa Beach Clinic setting take such good care of their patients, ME..!! I like Janet Reeves very much, and my "Low T Therapy" has given me energy I lost over 10 years ago, my joint pain is gone. But most of all, the staff takes time to treat secondary issues, vital for total health. Every one of his staff, show they care..... THANK YOU, CURTIS LIEBER
Very professional staff .
Janet is such an amazing person, she see's you as a person and not a number.
I saw Rhonda, yesterday, and she was just wonderful, and very caring. My first visit was in June, and I saw Cheryl, and I loved her. Rhonda is just as sweet and caring, she's a great asset to your office, she made me feel so comfortable and really treated me so well. I look forward to seeing her on my next visit
I went to this practice as a new patient and I could not be happier with the service from start to finish friendly helpful staff upon arrival , very well mannered ! I saw Janet reeves and I've never met a practitioner in the medical field like her ! Amazing woman and I felt so grateful to have gotten her help and care ! couldn't have asked for a better experience and honestly wouldn't go anywhere else !
Dr. was awesome and very professional, they are very efficient and do the best to get you on your way. They want to see people healthy and learn to live a healthier lifestyle. Great practice and all the staff, is very professional. They tried the best to meet all your needs.
Genuine, Responsive, and offer wide range of services
I've seen Dr. Bawa and Janet for years and write from a range of experiences with Dr. Bawa's clinic. The staff is courteous, follows through and is professional. Janet and Dr. Bawa each treat you with complete attention. They never stare at a screen asking questions over their shoulder. They look you in the eye, listen carefully, and speak plainly and with obvious care for your well being. The questions are never limited to your 'single' issue that day, but are about your whole well being. They're open to suggestions, and include you in treatment choices. As a modern doctor offering peripheral services - they don't 'hard sell' they're cosmetic and other services. They are appropriately presented, and it's clear what they offer. If you choose to engage them on those types of services they'll spend time with you explaining them. but there is no feeling of pressure. Twice over the years I've had complaints. Both Janet and Dr. Bawa reached out to me personally (and immediately) and made the issues right. There isn't anyone else in the area I'd better trust with my care. Thanks for taking such good care of me guys!
Best in area for Hormones
I went to see Dr Bawa a year ago because I was turning 40. His front staff were awesome. He was so helpful, courteous and never made me feel silly when explaining my symptoms. I went back again a few weeks ago and saw Christine who has since left. She was just as wonderful. Dr. Janet was in the room when I had my pellet implant and has since been invaluable to me with any questions I have , no matter how trivial. . I highly recommend them and will continue to see them for as long as needed. If I had one complaint it would be that I wish they were in FWB more often:)
Great DR and Great P.A>
Dr. Bawa has helped me for several years with my thyroid, hormones and weight. He has always been professional and takes the time to listen and really cares. I have seen a huge difference in my thyroid and my blood pressure. I have been seeing Janet Reeve P.A. for the past year. She is so awesome I cannot begin to write here how I feel. Janet listens and cares so much, I feel it and know she is concerned about what concerns me. The Staff is always kind and courteous. Thank you Dr. Bawa for having this type of people in your office in Seagrove Beach, Fl. 32459.
Great RN and Doctor
I have come to this office now for a couple of years and I do love the one on one attention they give you, getting down to what is going on and not in a rush to give you medication, they are more natural in healing and I love that about them. I love Janet, she makes the visit a great experience, her expertise is wonderful, she is very caring and helps you understand things.
Blessing from God
Br Bawa And Associates have seriously been my savior. I have not been bale to get my thyroid levels under control in 10 years. I have been through 5 different doctors. My life was miserable. In less than 2 months I feel alive again. I feel like I am 25 years old again mind you Im 42. He is helping me with my hormones so im not moody anymore and weight loss. Eveyone in his office show that they care about you. They make you feel comfortable and welcome. They never make you feel bad about yourself or the fact that you may be "fat". Thank You Dr Bawa. You andyou staff are always in my heart.
Doctor Bawa and his staff are professional, courteous and above all knowledgeable. I actually have my life back thanks Doctor Bawa and I would recommend his office to anyone.
Please retract my earlier review concerning Dr Bawa's. It was a miscommunication and after talking with the Dr in length I understand his position.
please delete my review
please delete the review I left earlier today. I was angry at Dr Bawa's receptionist and I shouldn't have left that review. I have since talked personally to Dr Bawa and his office manager and they have resolved any issues I had with other staff members thank you
Our family has been going to Bawa's and Associates for two years now. Our provider who we were seeing left the area. First appointment was Outstanding! And appointments still over two year's have continued to be Outstanding. This includes Dr. Bawa and Dr. Janet and the staff . They truly go the extra mile to help you with any situation. I'm glad we have Outstanding medical people who care and take the time for their patients which is truly hard to find these's days. I thank Bawa and Associates for the dedication and caring for each member's of my family. Thanks again
The staff is very polite and thorough. No long wait to be seen. I'm very happy to have found Dr. Babas office.
Great job !!
The more I go to Dr Bawa's office in Destin the more I like it. The office girls are so accommodating in every way. I usually see Courtney the PA and enjoy her as well. She works closely with Dr Bawa and they make sure you are right on target with thyroid and hormones. I like that a lot!! I have recommended this office alot to all my women friends who are having a rough time with hormones and such.
Everyone is very polite and caring.
I haven't been with this pratice for more than two-three weeks right now. But my experiences so far are all favorable. Everyone seems to have genuine care and concern for the patients. The blood work panel that I've already had done has already revealed several problems that all coincide with symptoms I've had most of life and for many many years. I'm very hopeful now for the changes I anticipate by treating these issues I've had.
Wait time was appropriate this time. Taken right in and had blood work done. In and out of office in less than 30 minutes. Can't ask for more than that. Staff is always professional and goes out of their way to help!
I am the person who hates to go to the doctors...I was told to go and see Janet @Dr. Bawa office in Seagrove. Well after many weeks of thinking about it, I made a phone call and explained to Kim (front office employee) that I have different fears and anxieties of going to the doctors. She said let me call you when I have and opening that way you do not have to dread your appointment for days. The very next Day Kim called and said she has a opening at 2:00 would I like to come in. Well I did...They got me right back and explained to me that Janet was running a little behind would I mind if Dr. Bawa saw me. I was very pleased with how professional each and every employee treated me. The amount of time they gave me I felt like I was the only patient in the office. Well I have been back 2 other times and absolutely Love Janet , Dr. Bawa and the wonderful staff. Thank You for your kindness and much care for me.
Janet Reeves and her staff were excellent in the way she tended to me on my visit last Thursday.
Very thorough, feel like someone is finally going to help me get to feeling better. Staff very courteous and friendly.
Best experience ever for a Dr appt
From start to finish the staff was extremely pleasant and took as much time with me as I needed. Janet was truly awesome to listen and go over my situation. I would most definitely recommend them to a friend. The staff was very efficient and I will be going back for future needs.
Today was my first visit
I was very satisfied with feeling you genuinely care about my health. That means everything. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I am looking forward to you being my permanent doctor.
need to lose some weight?
I have had nothing but good visits at Dr. Bawa's Seagrove office. The staff are always courteous and professional. Janet is my primary, she is excellent! Oh, did I mention that I've lost 55 pounds in the last year and to be honest I don't have a lot of will power. These people can help you.
Dr. Bawa and his staff are wonderful. I called in today and they were able to see me right away being I was sick. This is not the first time this has happened and they always get me in asap. Dr. Bawa is a great listener and tries natural remedies if possible instead of just giving another pill. So glad I found them and look forward to many years to come. Thanks everyone!!!
I have been using Dr Bawa for 4 years. He is a nice doctor and listens to what you are telling him. I always feel confident that he knows what he is doing and talking about. He is the first doctor YEARS to get my hormone replacement and blood pressure medicine correct. His office staff is always helpful and very nice. The negative is sometimes you have to wait in the office for awhile.
Literal Life Changers
Since I have been going to Doctor Reeves my life has changed dramatically for the best. There professionalism is only surpassed by how they treat you personally. They truly listen and care for you as a person, and not a number. I can't say enough about what they have done for me. From the girls up front, to the nurses, and to Doctor Reeves herself there is no comparison. I have never been healthier physically and mentally than I am now. I thank you so very much!!
Finally able to get back to Atlanta!
I was on spring break in Santa Rosa Beach and needed a doctor. The office promptly worked me in and I was able to see the nurse practitioner for my stomach virus. Within 36 hours, I was feeling human again and was able to drive back to Atlanta. Thank you again!
Excellent health care provider
Janet Reeves is an excellent health care provider. She takes a lot of time and is knowledgable of alternate treatment. I am very happy with my choice.
Very efficient !
I've been seeing Dr Bawa and Janet Reeves for a year And have been extremely satisfied with trestment And their friendly staff! Would definitely recommend Him to anyone !! I've been treated for variously illness' And they go out of their way to be very thorough!
They were great as usual.Courtney is a gem.
I had a follow up appointment today with Janet. I felt very at ease knowing that someone else was as concerned about my health as I was! I had questions about some medications that I was taking and she was glad to research and answer everything for me.
Never any issues. They are very thorough and knowledgeable. They are never running behind so your appointment time is the actual time.
Saw Janet a couple of days ago. She was extremely helpful and had genuine concern and knew how to listen. She was most helpful in giving me good information and was very reassuring.
Janet and Melanie at the Seagrove Beach location are great!
Everyone in office is fantastic!
Janet Reeves could not have been more helpful! She was so willing to work with our circumstance of living out of the country several months at a time, & only returning to US few times a year. My husband & I are both on bio identical hormones now, & are both on weight plan. Looking forward to a new leash on life in retirement, thanks to Janet. Michele, Sharon, & all the staff!
I want to thank everyone at the office. From check in to check out the ladies are pleasant and so patient. Dr. reeves is so patient, compassionate and caring. Thank you so much and we are blessed to have you in our area.
I left Dr. Bawa's office feeling like he HEARD me, he helped me and he is going to be addressing my weight issue for my long term health. He is kind, has a good sense of humor and works quickly without missing a thing. I am glad Dr. reed Harned recommended Dr. Bawa to me.
A friend recommended Dr. Bawa after I was having uncontrollable migraines. My regular doctor and neurologist just kept giving me new migraine meds. Dr. Bawa did a very thorough blood panel and tried to find the cause of the migraines instead of just treating them. It turned out my hormones were super whacko! I was so impressed with his vast knowledge and patience, I see him for everything now (he has replaced my general practioner). I would (and do) recommend him to everyone.
Great one on one
ARNP Janet Reeves and Dr. Bawa are attentive and remember who you are and what your issues are. Coming from military health care it is meaningful to have a Dr or staff member ask what I am allergic to every visit. The billing girl at the Destin is rude and disrespectful I actully stopped going to Dr. Bawa until found the Santa Rosa Beach office, the staff there is amazing.
Feel so much better
Have seen Courtney McGee ARNP a few times in the Fort Walton Beach office. She listens carefully and thoughtfully. The hormone testing, results and treatments for my insomnia, fatigue and anxiety have helped so much. What a refreshing change to feel better. The office staff has also been very courteous and helpful.
The nurse practitioner and nurse are great! The lady working the front desk needs a little lesson in compassion, customer service.
The office, nurse practitioner and nurse was great. Understanding and compassionate. The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 star was because the lady that checks you in seemed to be a little preoccupied/uptight.
Best Nurse Practitioner
I love my Nurse Practitioner, Janet Reeves. She immediately identifys my needs and comes up with a solution . She is caring, compationate, very knowledgeable. I am so much healthier since seeing her this past 6 months.
A good experience
Dr Bawa was very attentive & fully involved during our discussions about our health concerns. We will be in touch with him again
The PA was very welcoming and friendly she explained everything so that I understood where my pain is coming from and what is causing it and how we can fix it
Dr. Bawa is incredible
I feel amazing. Enough Said!
I am so grateful the office staff worked me in since I didn't have an appointment. Everyone there was absolutely professional and treated me with so much kindness. I was able to get my blood work done so the results can be ready when I return from vacation for my scheduled appointment.
Excellent staff , all very nice and friendly . Took me in when I was very sick and took care of me . Miss Courtney is always special to , she is always very concerned and wants to help .
Dr. Bawa is very thorough and knowledgeable. He is confident in his knowledge and imparts confidence to the patient. I definitely recommend Dr. Bawa and will go back with knowing I am in good hands.
Dr. Bawa has me feeling better than I have in 10 years! Every day is a joy - I am anxious for each new day to begin...it's fun to be alive again!!!
Not many like him in the area.
Dr Bawa and his staff are professional, knowledgeable and courteous. I have been battling some issues for sometime and feel like this is the first place that has really helped me. I prefer a more natural approach to things which they are open to but also know when medication might be more beneficial. Very few Drs think "outside the box" to try and help a patient these days and I feel Dr Bawa did that for me. I am not 100% yet but I am much much better then I was before I began tx under his care. I am truly grateful for this.
Always friendly and always professional, What more can you ask for!
I started visiting Dr. Bawa's office in mid February with a start weight of 199lbs. I have lost 9lbs in three weeks and I feel amazing. He's very informative and I personally think he cares about my well being! Can't wait to start my laser treatment for my skin!
Dr. Nitin Bawa M.D.
Dr. Bawa is the best primary care doctor I have come across in a very long time. He's extremely knowledgeable, takes the time to listen and customized a health care plan that improved my quality of life almost immediately.
Dr. Bawa review
I had appointment today at your office I was very happy with the visit . I always refer people to your office.
Not since Bon Tempe has blood extraction been more pleasurable. I never felt the needle. I never felt a sting during or after. The nurse performed her task with alacrity and precision unrivaled by any other prior experience regarding blood work. 4 test tubes full she took! Never felt a thing. Consummate professional. Deserves a raise!
Just blood work ,but in and out in thirty minutes. Staff very friendly and professional.
Insight and Alternatives
I went to Bawa to discuss my overall health at 52 years. I wanted to make sure I was at proper nutrition and male hormone. Many may not be aware that testosterone replacement therapy creates issues. If it was the right thing to do I am sure he would have discussed it with me, but he immediately had what appeared to be much more "natural" solutions. Bawa has insight to look at alternative approaches and my overall health was very good. He used instead Clomid to stimulate my own hormone production and it seems to have helped a great deal. His overall approach is very relaxed.
The entire team at Dr. Bawa and associates is incredible. They truly listen to you as a patient. Their friendliness is only surpassed by their professionalism. Doc. Reeves has indeed changed my life for the better and it is a blessing to have this team on my side. Would never go anywhere else now that I have found this jewel on the emerald coast.
Saw Janet, PA this time! She is so good & so thorough!Very professional
Yes, definitely & I have recommended Dr Bawa many times over the years
Top Notch Care~
My PA, Courtney and the entire staff are sweet and sensitive to all areas in the patient life. Thank you for your gentle care.
I recommend this doctor
Has great assistants. Very good at taking their time and explaining your diagnosis.
This is by far the nicest,friendliest and most helpful medical office I have ever visisted. Everyone there is so pleasant and nice and they make you feell at ease.There is never long wait time like most places.I have been in customer service for over thirty years that's a very rare thing these days as most doctor offices are cold,impersonal and uncaring.For example one of the nurses Jessica even called me to follow up on a problem I was having with a prescription not covered by insurance.She was so nice and helpful that really impressed me.To be honest the main reason I like going to the Fort Walton office is because of the physician assistant there,Courtney Mcgee.I just can't say enough good things about Courtney I think she is simply amazing!I trust her completely as I know she has genuine concern for my health and well being which has definetly improved since my initial visit.
Very nice office and staff.
I had this procedure done to reduce the age spots on my face and to even out my skin tone. The procedure was a little uncomfortable but not unbearable. The results have been tremendous. The brown spots are gone and my skin looks much smoother and the skin tone is much better. I don't have near the red blotchy areas that I once had. I have had several people comment on how nice my skin looks without them knowing I had anything done.
When I came into Dr. Bawa's Office I was going down hill fast. It seemed like no one could help. But after a few weeks of natural hormone replacement and some other natural vitamins I feel like a new person. Dr. Bawa has a wonderful calming manner about him and he set me at ease right away and I immediately felt like there was light at the end of the tunnel. I had tried to get an appt with a GYN in the area and every doctor I called had a 2 or 3 month wait. My girlfriend's said that I would not last that long and I think they were right. So when I got into Dr. Bawa's office in less than 2 weeks you wont believe how great-full I was that they could fit me in. And one of the nurses there took a blood sample, and I literally could not even feel the needle. I believe her name was Jennifer, what a great talent she has. What a great staff and great experience. Highly recommend!!!!!!!
Aha! So many questions answered!
I am grateful to have found Dr. Bawa. His approach to wellness is just what I have needed after many years of searching. Dr. Bawa got to the root of my chronic ailments with complete nutritional and metabolic analysis before treating my symptoms. My experiences with more traditional doctors that treated each symptom left me still unable to feel healthy. Since seeing Dr. Bawa, I have a greater understanding of how my genetics also play into my health, and how they can be addressed with proper supplements and nutrition. No doctor before him has ever taken such a thorough and holistic approach. I also appreciate a doctor who is open to natural approaches to healing rather than jumping to the latest pharmaceutical drug being sold. I feel like I am on my way to genuine wellness with Dr. Bawa's care.
I finally found a Doctor who listens, and his staff that cares
I want to thank Dr Bawa for his knowledge that has answered so many issues I have had with my health. I feel blessed to have found him, and wish I had done so a long time ago. His Staff, Naomi, Brooke, Jessica, and Sherri, are professional and genuinely care about my welfare. And to all Dr Bawa's staff that I have seen and not mentioned...Thank you! Marlane S
Everyone was so professional and kind.
