Specialist Practitioners

marion gluck

Dr Marion Gluck

Bio Identical Specialist

The Mews Practice works in partnership with Dr Marion Gluck. We align our procedures and practices with the leader in this field in order to provide the best possible practice for our patients.

Dr Marion Gluck trained as a doctor in Hamburg more than 30 years ago and has since gained global acclaim for her work in women’s health and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.

She started working in Australia 20 years ago and began to see the need for a better understanding of hormone therapy and more widespread treatment options for women experiencing issues. Marion believed that every person should have access to bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and the benefits needed to be discussed with patients and widely understood.

It became her mission to educate and empower people to take control of their hormonal well-being. Too often people ignore symptoms or fail to seek help because they simply don’t realise that anything is wrong. It was for this reason that she founded The Marion Gluck Clinic. Along with her team of highly trained doctors, she has helped thousands of women and men achieve optimum health and balance. She also set up our own compounding pharmacy, Specialist Pharmacy, where each prescription is prepared to the unique specifications of the patient. It is this personalised approach that has always put the Marion Gluck Clinic at the head of the pack and enabled her to offer the best possible care to the patients treated.

Dr Gluck has also developed a unique training course for doctors looking to offer bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to their patients, ensuring that more and more people have access to this treatment every day.
