Dr. Gregory T. Lynam M.D., D.D.S
Dr. Gregory T. Lynam is the founder of RVA Health and wellness. He is one of the few double board certified Maxillofacial and Plastic surgeons in Virginia. He has earned two doctorate degrees and has a thirst for knowledge which led him on the path to becoming educated in BHRT after his father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Hormone optimization has been shown to reduce the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease as well as many other medical maladies. Dr. Lynam has spent years learning the nuances of bio identical hormone therapy. He completed a rigorous four part course on BHRT in 2015 taught by World link medical and continues to stay up to date on the latest topics including hormones or peptide therapies.

She will be overseeing the day to day operations of BHRT with Dr. Lynam.
