Certified Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Doctor
Dr. Valentin is now providing BIOTE® Hormone Pellet Therapy at The Institute of Hormone Therapy and Weight Loss at our Lutz, Riverview and Spring Hill locations to help balance hormone levels in her patients…helping to reduce the risk of developing varicose veins and spider veins.
As a bioidentical hormone therapy specialist, Dr. Valentin inserts a tiny bioidentical hormone pellet just under the skin. The pellet continuously releases bioidentical hormones into the patient’s blood stream, assisting in weight loss, helping to improve energy levels, muscle tone, sleep quality, motivation, mental clarity, libido and mood.
A Note From Dr. Valentin About Hormone Therapy:
My greatest goal as your physician is to provide you with healthy alternative choices that will enhance your health and well-being. I decided that BioTE® Hormone Pellet Therapy was the right choice for my patients because restoring and balancing hormones can make a significant difference in their quality of life. Hormone deficiencies are of much concern to a lot of my patients and this new therapy can regulate and correct hormone imbalance by individualizing treatment.
BioTE® hormone therapy has been shown to be safe and effective without the harmful side effects of synthetic hormones. Remember, hormone imbalance can occur at any age so if you have any of the following symptoms you may be a candidate for hormone therapy for women or men:
- Anxiety and Irritability
- Extreme Fatigue
- Difficulty Sleeping
- Low Libido
- Memory Loss, Mental Fog and Confusion
- Joint Pain
- Night Sweats and Hot Flashes
- Weight Gain and Loss of Muscle Mass
I would like to invite you to learn more about how this treatment may be the answer you’ve been looking for. This type of therapy is not a one-size-fits-all approach to hormone balancing. You need an expert who can individualize your therapy making sure it is Right for You!

I have been extremely pleased with the staff at your Spring Hill office. Dr. Valentin is wonderful, Steve is a delight and the ultrasound technician (sorry, I forgot her name) is so nice. Everyone here makes you feel very comfortable and explains everything very well. I chose your facility from the internet and was very fortunate to find the knowledge, compassion and comfort that is sometimes difficult to find without a recommendation. I will be happy to tell anyone that needs your services to come to you for the best experience.
Thank you to all of you.
I would heartily recommend The Vein and Vascular Institute of Tampa Bay. I am a retired RN so am a little more familiar with medical functions than the average person. From making my appointment, to reception, to the intake interview, meeting with Dr. Kerr, performed procedures and then meeting with Dr. Valentin, I couldn't be more satisfied with the whole institute. First class.
Dr. Valentin and company are awesome! I finally have some answers to questions that I have had for some time! Thank you!
What a great group of people - not only knowledgeable, professional and efficient, but friendly and kind as well. I would recommend them highly to all. Thank you Dr Valentin - you are awesome!
After dealing with leg pain and seeing numerous doctors since 2003, I finally decided to see a Vein Specialist, although my primary doctor still tried to convince me that the problem with my legs was fibromyalgia and not vascular.
After my consultation and ultrasound with Dr. Valentin (who is one of the most wonderful, gentle and kind people you'll ever meet) I finally got my diagnosis. I must admit that I was a little nervous about the procedure because my mother had her veins stripped from her legs years ago and it was not a pleasant experience. However I can't believe how fast, simple and virtually pain free this procedure is and the recovery was so easy with little to no down time.
Dr. Valentin and my nurse Steve are the absolute best at what they do. They treat you with respect and dignity and Dr. Valentin will even sing to you during the procedure with her beautiful voice to put you at ease. I can't say enough about all of the staff and the awesome experience that I had here. Thanks to everyone who played a part in making me well again! Highly recommended!
To Dr. Valentin - you're awesome.
To the rest of the staff - great job.
Procedure was painless, fast & everyone very attentive, patient & caring.
Thanks to ALL.
Highly recommend this practice for hormone therapy and weight loss. Dr. Valentin is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She was able to give me back my energy and I feel better than ever. She also explains how hormones and supplements help support a healthier body for the years to come as well. Overall a great experience and I will be returning.
My experience with the Vein and Vascular Institute of Spring Hill has been truly amazing. The results of my surgery were, to say the least, miraculous. I had a very bad vein problem in my left leg ever since I was a young man. After meeting with Dr. Valentin and the outstanding office and surgery staff, I proceeded with the procedure, the results were unbelievable! I and a new man. I never thought it would be possible for me to ever wear shorts without being embarrassed. Now I walk through life with a new confidence and pride. THANK YOU DR. VALENTINE !!!!! YOU AND THE ENTIRE TEAM are THE BEST!!!!!
Dr. Valentin is fabulous!! With compassion and efficiency, they got me in with the the guidance of Dr. Kerr within an hour and evaluated. Even the ultrasound tech stayed to do my emergency scan, even though she had a death in the family.
