During the consultation, Dr. Naima Cheema evaluates each patient with menopause with a detailed history, physical exam and saliva testing. After thorough research of medical literature, Dr. Naima Cheema has concluded that saliva testing is superior to blood and urinary testing as it allows us to get an idea of the tissue hormone levels.
