“Defy consultation”

Visited on September 23, 2022

I really enjoyed my consultation with Beth. She discussed my recent blood panel results. She advised me on necessary actions to take on the results that were not in the normal range.

“Janel listened to all my concerns and…”

Visited on September 22, 2022

Janel listened to all my concerns and asked follow up questions so that she could fully understand my situation. She was great at explaining the plan forward and what to expect, the good and the possible bad symptoms, and when/how to contact her next if I had any issues

“Dr. Calkins”

Visited on September 22, 2022

Dr. Calkins was very patient, thorough, and addressed all of my concerns. Everything was explained in plain language. Because I switched my treatment from my primary care physician to Defy, my journey with Defy started slightly different than many others. The switch over was relatively seamless and I got to spend more time with Dr. Calkins discussing my treatment than I’ve ever had with a doctor as a patient. I’m grateful for the help and expertise!

What Our Patients are Saying

"...we are happier than before having kids...”

“Now with HRT, second opinions [from Defy Medical on other health conditions] as well as Defy’s assistance in more private husband-and-wife matters, we are happier than before having kids.” —Bob and Ginger

"...There's no reason to suffer in silence..."

“Within a month of starting my prescription I could feel the energy I had when I was younger and started seeing results in the gym. I don’t feel the mid-afternoon crash like I used to, and my libido is where it needs to be. There’s no reason to suffer in silence…Defy Medical can help you get to where you need to be!” –Robert

"...helpful in achieving sustainable long-term health..."

“I am able to trust that the providers at Defy will continue to offer patient-driven, cost-effective, hormone-based healthcare solutions that are actually helpful in achieving sustainable long-term health stability.” —Greg

"...You guys changed my life..."

“You guys have changed my life! I felt terrible for years…I couldn’t even carry my 4 year old son up the stairs and read him a bedtime story without having to stop and catch my breath. Thankfully I found Defy, and after working with my doctor, we developed a plan specific for me, and I feel better than I have in 10 years. If you are struggling with anything from lack of energy, dietary issues, libido issues, Defy has a team and product portfolio that can address them all… HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!” —Jarid

"...You will be doing yourself a huge favor..."

“I feel way more confident in myself for not only seeking treatment and bettering myself with treatment but having the wonderful staff at Defy Medical there for me with any concerns. I am excited for the continued journey with Defy, and I highly recommend anyone that may be questioning things to just do it. You will be doing yourself a huge favor, since your health is wealth.” —Travis

"...this is exactly where I'm supposed to be...."

“Defy has locked in my protocol to where I’m confident again, driven, my self-esteem came back. It’s pretty crazy going from low 200 total Testosterone to where I’m at now. It’s pretty spectacular….getting hormone replacement therapy has been a huge part of my process, allowing me to have the confidence to pursue what I’m doing today. So, if you’re on the fence, definitely reach out to Defy. Check them out. I know that I am not going to go anywhere else, this is exactly I’m supposed to be, who I’m supposed to be working with, and I’m super grateful for Defy Medical.” –Chris

"No doctor in my town wanted to treat me because I was only 25, despite having diagnosis, imaging and bloodwork indicating I needed the help. I want to thank Dr. Calkins from the bottom of my heart. The past few months have been so liberating for me and I finally feel in control of my life. Also, for the first time in my life, I can truly say I’m happy. I’m not just going through the motions to get through the day anymore."


“This place was one of the most efficient and helpful places that I’ve been to in a while. They were completely unbiased and viewed my very complex case based on science and results. If a provider is generally unbiased, it shows they truly care about the patient.”


“Friendly staff. Prompt service. Dr. Saya is knowledgeable and thorough in his work. Definitely recommend.”


“Prior to contacting Defy, I tried working with another similar company/medical group for Testosterone Replacement Therapy. The difference in the quality of customer service I received from Defy was night and day. The speed Defy worked with, while maintaining the professionalism, great customer service, and attention to detail was incredible.”


“So grateful for their services, I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience with this company. They seemed too good to be true, but after two years of working with them regularly, I can vouch that there are no strings attached, just medical services at more affordable prices.”


"We have been seeing Dr. Saya, and now Jill, for several years now. I even switched my thyroid care to them as well. I no longer have the hot flashes (YES!), and my moods are even, no extreme mood swings. Thank goodness!”


"Dr. Saya and team have been a godsend for me. Other doctors have brushed me off, saying my labs were in ‘normal’ range, but never listened to the symptoms I was suffering from. Working with Defy has been the best decision I've ever made, and I'll continue to recommend them to others."


"Been with Defy for about a year now and I have to say they've been phenomenal. Every staff member I've talked to or emailed has been very nice and prompt. Dr. Saya has been fantastic. This team has consistently given me peace of mind and treated me very well. Every penny has been well spent. I wish I would've started with them sooner."


"Been with Defy for over two years. Have consulted with Dr. Saya, Ben and Melissa. Every interaction has been outstanding, including those with customer service. I have not had one memorable, negative experience. Any and all concerns are dealt with promptly and always professionally and with a smile (determined by tone)."


"I can’t believe there might finally be a solution to how lousy I have been feeling, and I am so excited to begin my journey. I feel very confident in Defy Medical handling my hormonal health."
