About Us


Gretchen Reis, M.D.

Meet Gretchen Reis, M.D.

Gretchen Reis, M.D. is the Medical Director of the North Carolina Hormone Institute and an esteemed member of the BodyLogicMD network of physicians specializing in bioidentical hormone therapy. Dr. Reis is passionate about medicine and her patients, working in partnership with each patient as she helps them discover optimal wellness

It was her devotion to her patients that led her to leave traditional medicine and join the growing field of functional medicine, where she can address health from a whole body, preventive perspective and uncover the root cause of disease rather than simply managing symptoms. Before Dr. Reis made the transition to functional medicine, she grew frustrated with primary care practices. She didn’t really have the opportunity to use the tools that truly help patients find healing, such as nutritional guidance, targeted supplements, and healthy lifestyle changes. So, in 2009 after Dr. Reis was introduced to the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, she began to incorporate bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) into her practice, making the transition from traditional medicine to functional medicine.

With BHRT in her arsenal, Dr. Reis witnessed men and women of all ages experience bountiful health and a vastly improved lifestyle. In many cases, her patients were able to reduce or eliminate use of prescription medications and enjoy all the benefits of optimal health. This is the driving force behind Dr. Reis’ practice: she believes in creating a partnership with each patient to focus on nutrition, exercise, stress management, and then employ bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to achieve and maintain balance and function throughout the body.

Dr. Reis has found that practicing functional medicine makes her a better doctor because she no longer has to focus only on managing symptoms —now, she can “truly get to the root cause of symptoms” and harness a power beyond what traditional medicine can provide.

Today, Dr. Reis takes a preventive approach to medicine, delivering solutions for long term health and the highest quality of life. She joined the BodyLogicMD family in 2013 and began her practice at the North Carolina Hormone Institute where she embraces the added time she gets with each patient to address everything that stands between that patient and optimal health.

She has had the honor of being a guest speaker on the amazing abilities of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy at a primary care conference. Dr. Reis sets an example to her patients by maintaining a healthy lifestyle and running regularly for exercise.

Dr. Reis received her undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin and completed her medical degree at Baylor College of Medicine. She completed her residency at Lancaster General Hospital in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and received the AMA/Glaxo Leadership Award during her time there. Dr. Reis is currently an active member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and the Institute for Functional Medicine.
