Bioidentical Hormone Patient Reviews
Mary Ann started seeing me when I was desperate to regulate my hormones. I was swollen, lethargic, suffered from insomnia and overall exhaustion. She is the first practitioner to sit down and talk to me. She didn’t stare at the computer or judge me. She listened. She didn’t throw medication at me, she came up with a plan. Within a month, people started telling me I looked great. (The swelling was subsiding). Though I am not a hundred percent yet, I am making progress. She has encouraged me to change the way I think about food as well as my health. I wish more doctors practiced like Mary Ann does. She is an asset to the profession and a necessity to her patients. -Kristina Wiley, DDS.
I have been been fortunate to have received medical services from Maryann for years. Maryann is not only a wonderful health care professional she is also caring and compassionate individual. She treats her patients with care and understanding. She listens to everything you have to say and comes up with a plan that best suits you as an individual. She is never hurried for time because she plans accordingly. Maryann is very knowledgeable in the bioidentical hormones as well as proper diet and nutrition. As I said in the beginning I have been so fortunate to be part of clientele because she helped me regain my health and control my hormones. I am grateful for all she has done for me. -Judi Hunt
Mary Ann listened to me far more than my doctor and helped me with bio-identical therapy which has really helped me with hot flashes. She is terrific and I highly recommend her. -Laurie Johnston
I want to thank Mary Ann Simpson for her very professional and practical care. I was in great need of assistance, and my sister referred me to her. During my initial visit with her, Mary Ann very professionally and kindly explained my options, and the pros and cons of different treatments. She listened to me and answered my many questions with great patience and thoroughness. She was available for follow-up through email and phone contact, and helped me through some difficult situations. I have greatly benefited from her care. I would highly recommend Mary Ann to anyone in need of these services. -Laura Whitworth
Maryann has the knowledge, expertise & wisdom to help women with their health issues. I am 57 and have been struggling with sleepless nights for seven years. After my consultation I followed Maryann’s suggestions. I have more energy and my sleep patterns are much improved! She also has an abundance of knowledge about nutrition and alternative options. I highly recommend Maryann Simpson. She is priceless to me.

I have been a patient of Mary Ann for Many years. Not only is she a very knowledgeable and caring individual but she also takes the time to listen to your concerns and work with you on a one-to-one basis. I would definitely recommend Mary Ann to anyone who is looking for a viable alternative to the status quo medical treatment that we all receive from our general practitioners. -Janice Singleton
The last few years, I have had problems gaining weight. I had large spells of fatigue, and felt sick all the time. I went to at least three doctors to run test after test to try to find the cause. They ran bloodwork and would find inconsistencies but never an answer or solution. I still continued to lose weight until I was barely 90 pounds. They said it was due to stress and me being vegan, which never quite added up.
My husband was by my side through the entire journey, and knew first hand the problems I was experiencing.we had the same diet, and he had no issue with weight. He met Maryann’s husband, and after a conversation came home with her card and information for me. At first I was not in a hurry to go. I had honestly lost hope in finding out the problem and was starting to believe it was in my head.
For the next few months we decided to try finally for a baby. With no luck, I went back to my doctors and OB for advice. They said the same- start eating meat, eat ice cream fattening foods. They said I wasn’t built to carry a child. I went home depressed and we began looking into adoption. My husband luckily wouldn’t let me give up. He knew there was some underlying problem. He again mentioned Maryann, and that she worked with women and she had a holistic view which was a fresh view compared to the doctors I had been seeing. I was very nervous at the consult. I had an extensive medical history with surgeries and tests that I hated talking about, and had started to feel very uncomfortable in medical environments. She was very thorough, and took lots of notes while we talked for over an hour. She right off the bat, recommended things for me to drink to help with my stomach issues then not only ordered new blood tests but asked to see my old ones as well. She then determined I had a platelet disorder, which is very rare (and had never been noticed prior) . Two months after seeing her and applying the changes she had proposed, I started to sleep, and was able to eat and gained ten pounds. Shortly after, I found out I was pregnant. I am now due in two days.
Throughout the pregnancy I have seen a hematologist and specialists because of my blood disorder. If I didn’t go see Maryann, I don’t think I would have been able to get pregnant; but even if I did I never would have known about the platelet disorder. At first the hematologist and obgyn weren’t convinced that the condition had been missed for my entire life- and insisted on running even more tests. They all confirmed her findings and without her I am convinced I never would have known about it. The condition can be genetic so I am now very educated on the condition for myself and child. I am so incredibly thankful, and recommend her to everyone who has health issues that are beginning to affect their everyday life. Thank you ! -Heather Padilla
I first met Maryann in 1999…she was my NP through UCDavis. I was a Medi-Cal patient. I was pregnant with my 2nd child.
This is a bit of an awkward review for me, because it deals with issues I’m not sure about. Honestly, it isn’t even so much about the business as it is the woman.
At any rate, I was 22 years old when I first met Maryann. Since i was 15 years old i had what is, very apparently, a common disease called fibrocystic breast disease. It is painful. It is scary. It is confusing.
Fibrocystic breast disease caused huge masses to form in my breasts. I had 3 on each breast…and they were huge. When they were not flared up i was a B cup. When they were flared up i was a D cup. And they hurt…they hurt so much that I couldn’t manage anything more than a fast walk.
When I was 20-years old working at a horticultural nursery one of the masses busted. Black fluid started leaking from my nipple. I went to a doctor (private insurance) and was told it was excess hormones, and i just had to live with this disease for the rest of my life.
So I did. I went about my life cautiously. I didn’t hug people, i didn’t run, I didn’t eat or drink caffeine or enjoy chocolate…because apparently those are triggers. None of it helped, and i just figured that this pain was normal, and i should remain distant.
Queue to my present life and i see how the omission of such a low-level, pervasive pain impacts a human being.
You see, when i saw Maryann for my OB visit when i was pregnant with my 2nd child I told her about the fibrocystic breast disease. I was only semi-flared at the time. Only in a minor amount of pain. She listened to me very conscientiously, and proceeded with my exam quite professionally. As she finished her exam, a heat flared across my chest.
I kid you not. The last two seconds that her hands were conducting my breast exam were the last two seconds that i suffered from fibrocystic breast disease. I didn’t realize it at the time, i was too embarrassed because my nipples turned hard as rock and my entire skin contracted. It certainly was not sexual, what I felt, but it manifested that way…at least to the 22-year-old me.
Things have changed a bit. I don’t have fibrocystic breast disease anymore. And i thank Maryann for that. I didn’t change anything about my lifestyle or my diet. I simply talked to her for a few minutes and honestly assumed that i’d be disregarded as a Medi-cal patient. Instead, i was healed of a pervasive disease.
Honestly, i still don’t get it. Still don’t understand. And still attribute it to the woman who did the healing.
