Meet Dr Heiger
Dr. Jennifer Heiger is a naturopathic physician and the owner of Reine Medicine, where she specializes in women’s health. She is licensed in California and Washington State.
In practice since 2010, Dr. Heiger was a naturopathic physician at Private Medical, a concierge practice focused on highly customized care, in its Los Angeles and Silicon Valley offices. Prior to that, Dr. Heiger practiced in the integrative private clinic of Gordon P. Baker, MD, which specialized in allergy, immunology, environmental exposure, and autoimmune conditions. Dr. Heiger started her naturopathic career at Key Compounding Pharmacy as a consultant on bio-identical hormones.

1/ What types of conditions are treated at Reine Medicine?

2/ Does Dr. Heiger accept insurance?
No. We do provide the patient with an invoice to submit to their insurance company for possible reimbursement. Please check with your insurance company prior to your visit to see if you have naturopathic coverage.
3/ Do you offer bio-identical hormone therapy?
Yes. Hormone therapy can be very beneficial, but it is sometimes not the first choice we make and never the only thing we use. The woman’s body is multifaceted and so beautifully unique, and our bodies require more than just the replacement of hormones. Depending on where you are on your health journey and what’s realistic for your life, we’ll decide how or if bio-identical hormones are right for you.
The bio-identical hormones are prescribed in an organic oil base with no harmful solvents.
Dr. Heiger has trained with Daved Rosensweet, MD and completed the Menopause Method course. She continues to be an active member of the Menopause Method and is on the Advisory Board for the Institute of BioIdentical Medicine (IOBIM).
4/ Do you test hormone levels?
Yes. Dr. Heiger prefers urine hormone testing, but it’s not always the first thing we do before initiating hormone therapy. If you are perimenopausal, hormone levels are erratic and can greatly fluctuate. This makes it difficult to test and get an accurate measurement of your hormone levels. If you are postmenopausal, we can guarantee hormone levels are low. In this case we may decide to treat first, improve how your feel, and then later test levels to make sure you are metabolizing hormones properly and levels are within the optimal ranges.
5/ Is there an option for in-person visits?
Not at this time. Only telemedicine appointments are available.
