Strategic vendor partnerships give our patients access to a variety of services.
Defy Medical Vendor Information
Patients can go to one place to order blood work, refill medications, and schedule a video consultation with their doctor. Defy Medical will make sure the service is delivered as expected and with the highest level of customer service.
Progressive hormone therapies and adjunctive treatments prescribed for men’s and women’s health involve a variety of medications from different pharmacies.
Using an expansive pharmacy network allows our providers to collaborate with patients on treatment options, offer extended patient choice, and tailor treatments to patients’ needs.
Defy Medical also works to reduce costs for the patient wherever possible while finding the most effective medications through our prescription management services.
Laboratory assessment and early intervention to improve physiological, nutritional/hormonal, emotional/cognitive and physical function is key in running a successful practice. Routine monitoring of patient biomarkers is scheduled throughout the year as an essential component for patients receiving hormone supplementation, interventional therapies, and/or fertility treatments. There are certain lab tests that need to be performed intermittently to properly monitor patients undergoing hormone replacement therapies.
Some patients do not have third-party coverage for the laboratory tests prescribed for these treatments; and the patient cost offered by the laboratory can be too expensive for the patient to afford, which therefore may result in non-compliance and low treatment retention.
Defy Medical has partnered with a laboratory physician cooperative that contracts with accredited national laboratories to receive discounted prices for individual tests and test panels; the cost being significantly lower than what is typically billed by the laboratory. This cost savings is then passed to the patient, who ends up saving an average of 92% off the retail price.
The national laboratories used by Defy Medical always uses accepted and proven methodologies to analyze specimens. This includes Liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC-MS) used to accurately analyze sex hormones, such as Estradiol in males as LC-MS testosterone. This methodology is found to be more accurate than other common methods used by other institutions offering hormone therapies.
The clinic currently has wholesale contracts with several supplement manufacturers who produce high quality formulations for clinical use. These companies are a preferred source for over-the-counter supplements. The clinic uses these companies since they voluntarily and certifiably follow cGMP standards for quality control and testing as required by a pharmaceutical manufacturer.
These contracted companies provide a great low-cost source for an array of nutritional supplements which can be purchased by patients. The cost for these nutritional supplements can possibly be lower when purchasing through Defy Medical, therefore the patient pays a comparable cost as found in retail nutrition stores but for a higher quality product.
Defy Medical uses CFR and HIPAA compliant software to create a safe interactive platform that allows patients to access clinical services anywhere in the world.
