There's real substance to the notion that every woman is different. No two person's attitudes, bodies, or goals in life are ever exactly the same. But if there's one thing that every person shares, it's that our bodies change as we get older. That's especially true for females over the age of 50. One day you wake up, roll out of bed, and attack the day with vigor and positivity.
The next day, it seems like your emotions are out of control. Despite dieting and healthy life choices, your weight won't go down. It seems like you're having to deal with uncomfortable hot flashes every other hour of the day. Life can be hard after 50, especially when it seems like your body is plotting against you.
But the truth is, these changes are a completely normal part of the aging process for women. As you might be aware, this change is called menopause, and according to the NIH, more than one million women go through it every year. This change in life marks the end of your period. During this time, your hormones begin to deplete, causing a range of symptoms that can be difficult to deal with without professional help. Some of the most common symptoms of menopause include:
Trying to juggle and cope with the symptoms of hormone deficiency can be rough for women and their partners because many of them are linked to nutrition, stress, and lack of exercise.
Fortunately, getting older and going through menopause doesn't have to be the worst time in your life. Hormone replacement therapy for women in Baldwin Park, FL, can help correct the imbalances in your body that are brought on by menopause. These safe, proven treatments from NV Medical Orlando can help balance your hormones during menopause and even help you reclaim your youth.

We're proud to say that products made here at The Shutter Shop are shipped to builders and homeowners all across the United States.
It all started when Shawn Reardon, The Shutter Shop's sole owner, and his wife moved from Santee to Georgetown in 2003.

They started out manufacturing plantation shutters only and a couple years later began manufacturing all exterior window coverings also.
At NV Medical Orlando, our HRT treatments for women include the use of pellets, which are about the size of a tic-tac and contain hormones like estrogen and testosterone. These pellets are implanted subcutaneously to supply your body with the hormones it needs. Each pellet contains a tiny number of bioidentical hormones that are released steadily into your bloodstream for up to five months.
Unlike other sexual health centers, every HRT treatment provided by our women's sexual health clinic is tailored to our patients. While natural hormone replacement therapy is effective for many women, every patient is different. That's why it's important that you speak with a board-certified doctor, like Gina Kirkpatrick, before starting any HRT treatment to make sure it's right for you.
When a woman's hormones are balanced, there's a better chance that she will be able to live a happy, normal life. That's where the beauty of HRT for women begins to unfold because it balances hormones in your body that would otherwise be disrupted due to menopause.
HRT treatments for women are revolutionary in that they allow you to enjoy life without suffering through all the pitfalls associated with getting older. However, at NV Medical Orlando, our team understands that no two women have the same bodies or hormone imbalances. That's why our board-certified and fellowship-trained urologist, Gina Kirkpatrick, D.O., provides personalized HRT therapy options for women.
Is HRT treatment from NV Medical Orlando the answer to your mood, weight, and exhaustion problems? That's the million-dollar question we get almost every day. And honestly, it's difficult to say until we can see you in our office and conduct a thorough examination. What we can say is that when your hormones are balanced optimally during menopause, you have a much better chance of living a normal life without the overwhelming symptoms that many women experience.
At NV Medical Orlando, we prioritize helping women balance their hormones to live healthy, fulfilling lives. Our HRT therapy options aren't just about getting you on a regimen - it's about giving your body the nutrition and love it deserves through a patient-first approach.
Unlike some clinics that rush their patients into therapy, our team focuses on our patient's needs and goals first. To achieve those goals, we conduct thorough blood tests and comprehensively examine your health during your first visit. That way, we can discover your underlying problems, determine your hormone levels, and get a better sense of your needs.
After that, our dedicated physician will develop a personalized treatment plan for you. The goal of this plan is to outline your HRT journey so that we can balance your hormones and your whole body. During this process, we'll keep a close eye on your hormone replacement therapy for women in Baldwin Park, FL. Like a web, HRT therapy covers several facets of female health. Each piece of that web works in tandem with others to make up how you feel. If we need to tweak aspects of your plan to help you feel better, we'll let you know and will adjust accordingly.
At the end of the day, we want you to feel safe, empowered, and like you're part of our family. After all, true HRT for women doesn't just balance hormones - it optimizes wellbeing and health, too. That's why NV Medical Orlando is dedicated to giving you a one-of-a-kind experience and specialized care, so you'll never feel like you're falling through the cracks.
Up to this point, we've talked about all the greatness that can come with HRT from NV Medical Orlando - but what are the actual benefits? Let's take a look.
Most women who consider natural hormone therapy are curious about its benefits and the results of long-term clinical investigations. Who wouldn't be? When it comes to the symptoms of menopause, natural estrogen therapy can be incredibly effective for conditions like lack of sleep, weight gain, excessive sweating, mood swings, and more.
In addition to promoting overall health, HRT for women can help reverse sexual symptoms of menopause, like vaginal dryness and general discomfort during intercourse.
When used as part of a comprehensive preventive healthcare plan, HRT can be an invaluable tool for women. That's because hormone therapies like estrogen treatment have been shown in clinical investigations to reduce the risk of serious concerns like osteoporosis and bone loss.
But that's just the start. Clinical studies report a wide range of HRT benefits, including:

As we mentioned earlier, no two women will have the same hormone levels or HRT therapy needs. As such, every woman's timeline for menopause relief will be different. Generally, however, a standard HRT timeline may look like this:
Around week one, many women notice that they experience fewer hot flashes than normal. Some women notice these improvements only a few days after their first treatment.
After about two to three weeks of HRT for women in Baldwin Park, FL, many women notice that they have less irritability, anxiety, and fewer mood swings. During this phase, hot flashes should continue diminishing, and sleep may improve. Other benefits of HRT, like increased libido and more energy, are also expected during this phase.
Starting around weeks three to four, many HRT patients will notice drastic improvements in menopausal symptoms.
Around weeks five and six, it's common for women to notice physical differences like healthier skin, less hair loss, and even weight loss. With time, these improvements become even more pronounced.
At NV Medical Orlando, we don't only treat our patients for sexual health and wellness. Because Dr. Gina Kirkpatrick is a fellowship-trained urologist, our clinic has the capacity to treat all matters related to sexual health and wellness, including certain urologic conditions.
Have you started to notice that things âdown underâ are different than they were years ago? Are you experiencing disconcerting symptoms such as:
If you've noticed any of the above symptoms, you may be dealing with vaginal or pelvic floor laxity. For women dealing with these issues, vaginal rejuvenation often answers their problems. Vaginal rejuvenation is an umbrella term that covers several vaginal corrective procedures. These procedures can correct problems that occur after giving birth or during menopause.
Traditionally, these conditions have been treated with invasive surgeries and with supplements like vaginal estrogen or hyaluronic acid. However, modern treatment options like laser vaginal rejuvenation are growing in popularity and can help women avoid the pitfalls of surgery.
In fact, study centers around the world are using monopolar radiofrequency for vaginal laxity in premenopausal women. Studies show that treatment is safe and helps improve vaginal laxity and other sexual dysfunctions. Additionally, anecdotal evidence shows that patients have less urine leakage when coughing, laughing, sneezing, and exercising.
If you're unsatisfied with the appearance of your vagina or have noticed increased looseness or diminished lubrication, don't lose hope. Vaginal rejuvenation, HRT for women in Baldwin Park, FL, or a combo of the two may be right for you.
If you're a woman who finds herself lacking sexual desire or the act of sexual intercourse, you're not alone. In fact, research from 1999 shows that as much as 22% of women in the U.S. report low sex drive. Though this issue is often underreported, its causes and the available treatments are well-known.
Causes of low libido in women include:
Hysterectomies often result in a drastic drop of testosterone and estrogen in a woman's body. This drop in hormones has been linked to low libido.
Some medicines that are used to treat depression and anxiety, specifically SSRIs that inhibit serotonin, have been demonstrated to reduce sexual arousal.
Estrogen affects blood flow to vaginal and genital tissues. Reducing estrogen, which can occur during and after menopause, childbirth or surgical menopause created secondary to a hysterectomy can result in reduced vaginal blood flow and lubrication.
Studies on post-menopausal women have demonstrated that patients in poor health report lower sexual desire. In fact, symptoms like chronic pain, fatigue, and mood swings caused by chronic illnesses all contribute to decreased female libido.
Though low libido and the effects of unbalanced hormones can be concerning, treatment is available at NV Medical Orlando. First, a thorough physical exam and health history will be conducted to help our experts develop an optimal treatment plan for you. During your evaluation, you may be asked to complete a questionnaire that helps us assess your symptoms further. That way, we can craft an appropriate treatment regimen to address your symptoms and concerns.
The type of treatment recommended depends on your identified needs and may include hormone replacement therapy for women, vaginal treatments, oral medications, sexual therapies, or additional treatment regimens.
If you're a woman suffering day-to-day from the symptoms of menopause, now is the time to balance your hormones and reclaim your life. Sure, menopause is a natural process that occurs in almost every woman's body. But that doesn't mean you must forego treatments like HRT to make your transition easier. Who says the second half of your life can't be better than the first?
At NV Medical Orlando, we have helped countless women overcome the life-changing symptoms associated with menopause and hormone imbalances, and we're here for you, too. Contact our office today to schedule your evaluation and take the first step toward long-term relief.407-730-4244

The owners of the Baldwin Point office building that overlooks Lake Baldwin are seeking approval from the City of Orlando to build a 5-story apartment building on its enormous parking lot.
Parkway Property Investments and TriGate Securities paid $35.5 million in 2021 for the 165,000-square-foot office building at 2420 S. Lakemont Ave. despite reduced demand for office space post-COVID. At the time of the acquisition, the partners noted the potential to add infill multifamily housing on the 9-acre site made the deal especially attractive.
Now the JV has filed a master plan for the 305-unit multifamily building just north of Blue Jacket Park, which bisects the master-planned community. The building would have an attached, 6-level parking garage to accommodate both the residents and office workers.
Christopher Wang, director of investments for Parkway, told GrowthSpotter that Baldwin Point is approaching 90% occupancy, but on most days the surface parking lot is largely empty. COVID has permanently altered the office work paradigm, leaving buildings in the suburbs and downtown business districts with excess parking.
“You’re seeing a lot of office buildings that are just way overparked in terms of how many parking spaces are offered for office use,” he said. “And what you have now in a lot of suburbia is these large office properties that are just basically mostly vacant parking lots, right? And we feel like that is something that as a society and as a country we need to address, and there are ways of improving upon this status quo such that not only can we provide, in this case, a really nice brand new structured parking garage for our office tenants that shields them from the heat and the elements, like rain during the rainy season in Florida. But because of this densification, we’re also able to offer much-needed rental housing, in what we believe is one of the best neighborhoods and all of Orlando: Baldwin Park.”
The building design from Forum Architecture & Interior Design maximizes the views of Blue Jacket Park with four wings that extend south to create a primary entrance off Upper Park Road and two large amenity courtyards. The double-height clubhouse space opens up onto the pool courtyard. The central courtyard functions as the main entrance and exit to the garage, along with visitor parking and access to the leasing office. The third courtyard will house a second amenity space with landscaped gardens and sidewalks.
“We really wanted to integrate this building into the natural environment right there,” Wang said. “And we really want to make this sort of outdoors. environment as beneficial as possible for our residents, such that it really encourages them to spend time outside — whether it’s just for leisure or even for those that choose to work from home so that they can feel like they can go outdoors and feel very comfortable. So we’re going to do some really cool improvements, especially in the outdoor areas so our residents have that ability to use each of those courtyards.”
The developer collaborated with Forum to select a coastal, Nantucket-style of architecture that pays homage to Baldwin Park’s history as a former naval base. Kimley Horn served as the civil engineer and landscape architect.
“We certainly want to deliver a project that that the residents of Baldwin Park can look at and be proud of and think it’s additive to the neighborhoods. So, again, we really love the neighborhood,” Wang said.
Parkway led the development of the Lake Mary Wellness & Technology Park, an $800M mixed-use project containing Orlando Health’s Medical Campus with a 240-bed hospital, 20,000-square-foot emergency room, and a helicopter pad. The Park also includes more than 600,000 square feet of Class A office space, 190,000 square feet of medical office space, a 212-bed assisted living and memory care facility, a 120-room Hilton hotel, and 50 high-end townhomes. Parkway co-developed the Class A Helix at Lake Mary apartments, which sold last October at 98% occupancy for $125.1 million.
Parkway also broke ground in 2022 on a new 300-unit apartment community at Johns Lake Landing on State Road 50 in Clermont. Parkway consultant Rich Toomey told GrowthSpotter the first units would be available in spring 2024. The developer completed the build-out of the community by selling the remaining residential lots David Weekley Homes. The commercial lots were sold to Ashley Furniture, Rooms To Go Patio, O2B Kids Day Care and Learning Centers and Wendy’s.
Baldwin Point would be the second new apartment community added to the master-planned community, following the recently approved project from Gables Residential at 1801 Prospect Ave. That community also includes a 5-story apartment building with structured parking on property in the Village Center that was once used for a credit union.
The master plan was approved after the developer relocated the garbage collection and move-in staging area off Prospect Avenue at the request of city staff.

For fans of Phan — chef Tung Phan, that is — the wait is over.
Those who have become regulars at Phan’s DomuLab success story, Camille, will be welcomed with open arms, and eight well-appointed seats, in the French-Vietnamese restaurant’s swanky new Baldwin Park location (4962 New Broad St. at Lake Baldwin).
“The most exciting thing about moving into the new space is the ability to construct the Camille culture as a whole,” Phan told the Orlando Sentinel. “We want to do more for our guests and our team.”
It’s “the bigger picture,” he noted. And it certainly is bigger. The expansive, 2,500-square-foot restaurant features 30 seats. While the Chef’s Counter tasting menu will be featured in a short, first-phase period, plans for a less formal dining room experience won’t be far behind. Guests will also find a bar offering wine, sake and beer curated by an in-house sommelier, as well as a private dining room for events.
Camille, which in its pop-up phase was named the Critic’s Pick for Best New Restaurant in the 2022 Orlando Sentinel Foodie Awards, is known for its mashup of Phan’s Vietnamese background, which is both personal and professional. His first foray into the restaurant business, the now-shuttered Phan’s, (“the training-wheel days,” he calls them) showed indicators of his prevalence toward taking traditional dishes and twisting them.
At Camille, Phan’s cultivated experience with French gastronomy working alongside the masters at Victoria & Albert’s, the dishes — elegant and playful — are simultaneously comforting and familiar, but leveled up. Often dizzyingly so.
Also like Phan’s, Camille will be a family affair, with chef Phan’s sister, Trinh, embedded into the team, all of whom have enjoyed growth under the mentorship of restaurateurs Jimmy and Johnny Tung, Orlando’s most recent James Beard semifinalists.

“It’s been a goal of mine to represent Orlando on the big stage,” says the chef, noting his gratitude to The Neighbors and East End Market for his ability to learn and grow in their space. “I am hoping it will open doors to growth and opportunities for myself and my team.”
Camille in Baldwin Park will be open for dinner with two seatings each evening by reservation only. June reservations are slated to be released at 6 p.m. on May 17. Cost is $180 per person.

It’s not quite “Beard in Baldwin,” but Franco’s Flop Fest promises a good time just the same when it splashes down on Baldwin Park’s New Broad Street on May 6 from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Hosted by Baldwin Park’s own Tactical Brewing Co. and Orlando’s most colorful ween slingers, Cholo Dogs, the event, which drew roughly 700 attendees and 20 contestants to Longwood’s Hourglass Brewing in 2022, promises to be even splashier with the debut of Flop Fest Beer in a street-party setting. The lemon-lime shandy, an event-specific release from Tactical, will be an ideal sip for ushering in Orlando’s summer season — and looks pretty snazzy in a can designed by local artist Sleds.
“We love collaborating with Tactical,” says Cholo Dogs co-owner Jordan Eichenblatt. “We did a beer with them for Cinco de Mayo last year and they did one for our hot dog eating contest, too. This one is going to be a perfect refresher in the heat.”
Towels with the same design will be available at OrlandoShirts.com for $27.
The pool, set up on a platform mid-street, will be the focal point as contestants — many of whom flop in festive costumes — line up to impress with their water displacement skills. $25 not only gets you entered, but free hot dogs and, if you’re 21+, free beer. Plus a cool T-shirt. Sign up online at cholodogs.com/events or in person. Cut-off time to enter is 1:00 p.m.
For eats beyond the Cholo Dogs’ weens, purveyors Red Panda Noodle, ATL Peach Winter and Flippin’ Delicious will be on site, as well.
The Franco’s Flop Fest winner — who will be selected by a bevy of local celebrity judges including Bungalower’s Brendan O’Connor — will enjoy spoils beyond bragging rights in the form of the Golden Luchador Mask trophy and an exclusive champion’s version of the Flop Fest towel.

An Orlando physician who also is a developer is looking to cash in on pickleball's rapidly spreading popularity — as well as his own growing affinity for the game.
Dr. Ravi Gandhi, a local neurosurgeon and partner with Orlando-based Verax Investments LLC, told Orlando Business Journal his group has a Baldwin Park-area property under contract that it intends to convert into an indoor pickleball facility.
Gandhi said he has the warehouse property at 4208 Daubert St. under contract for $2.5 million.
Why this matters: Commercial real estate deals can be good for the local economy. The conversion of the Daubert Street property will create opportunities for contractors, as well as have the potential to attract further investment from neighboring property owners.
Gandhi said the deal will close soon and the property's current owner — SR Business Center Corp, an entity related to SR Plumbing, which operates from the building — has asked that the deal include a sale-leaseback option to allow the plumbing business to continue operating while it seeks out a new location.
Executives for SR Plumbing could not be reached for comment. The industrial property last sold for $850,000 in 2004.

The leaseback portion of the deal may last up to a year, Gandhi said, after which he intends to invest about $750,000 to convert the property, which is less than a mile south of Baldwin Park and about one mile east of Orlando Fashion Square mall.
He said the inspiration for the project stems both from the growing popularity of the sport, as well as his own interest in the game.
"This is one of the projects that's more personal for me," Gandhi said. "My friends and I started playing six months ago and have gotten really into it. ... My hope was to make something a little bit higher-end and very family-oriented."
Meanwhile, Verax Investments remains busy, having just bought land in Winter Garden for a 32,000-square-foot medical and retail project, among several others.
As for the growing pickleball phenomena locally, recent news related to the game includes plans for a pickleball-themed food, drink and entertainment concept from the founder of Punch Bowl Social, as well as the announcement that the Orlando Squeeze will be among the new teams joining Major League Pickleball by Margaritaville for the upcoming 2023 season.
In January, a report by the Association of Pickleball Professionals (APP) revealed that 14% of American adults — 36.5 million people — played the sport at least once between August 2021 and August 2022.
“The first of what will be our annual APP Participation Report clearly shows that pickleball is not only America’s fastest-growing sport, it is growing much faster than anyone really thought. Now, pickleball has to be viewed as one of America’s favorite sports,” said Association of Pickleball Professionals Chief Marketing Officer Tom Webb in a prepared statement.
