Maybe It’s Time for A New Beginning
Moore’s A New Beginning Healthcare practice is the first in Oklahoma to offer a new, non-invasive body sculpting treatment. Known as Cutera 3D Body Sculpting, the treatment works by targeting fat tissue below the skin surface and utilizing targeted temperature to speed fat loss and improve “stubborn” areas of the body that don’t respond completely to diet and exercise. The treatments are painless, take only a few minutes and don’t require any down time.
Adopting this state-of-the-art treatment is par for the course for A New Beginning Healthcare, which has consistently been at the forefront of laser and hormone therapies since it opened in 2011. In fact, the practice offers a unique combination of services for both men and women. Specifically, it provides a traditional family practice, gynecological care for women (including surgery), and laboratory services, along with hormone therapy, allergy treatments, weight loss, laser skin treatments and laser anti-aging treatments.
The practice is staffed by Drs. Marie Carter and Michelle Webster, who aren’t just DOs, they’re also twin sisters who earned their medical degrees from Oklahoma State University. Rounding out the health care team is nurse practitioner Michelle Lane, who is a graduate of the University of South Alabama.
One of the most popular services provided for both men and women is hormone pellet therapy, said Practice Manager Breanna West. Similar to the Depo Provera contraceptive’s delivery method, the tiny pellets are placed just below the skin on the patient’s hip, where they deliver a steady dose of hormones that last several months. The natural hormones are absorbed completely into the body (which is not the case with pills or injections), with better results for the patient. New Beginning was one of the very first clinics in the Oklahoma City area to provide this cutting-edge treatment, West said.
Weight loss assistance is another major staple of the clinic’s business. “About 80 percent of our patients are here for either hormone treatments or weight loss,” West said. “Most are women, but we have a growing number of male patients as well, especially for the hormone therapy.”
A New Beginning Healthcare also handles basic care, including birth control and annual gynecological exams. The patients range from late teens on up, with most patients being in their late 30s to mid-50s.
“My husband and I are both patients here,” said Michelle Sprague Davis, who contributed to the practice’s 4.4-star rating on its Facebook page. “The hormone therapy is amazing. We’ve never had such a comprehensive panel of labs ran. They are very attentive to your results and what you need to do to feel your best.”
