About Full Potential HRT Clinic
Full Potential HRT Clinic is the largest and most successful anti-aging and regenerative medicine clinic in the Pacific Northwest. We have accomplished this because since 2015 we have focused only on anti-aging and regenerative medicine, and we have always strived to evolve and pioneer our methods as we have gained more clinical experience and success over the years. As it stands, our distinguished team of physicians led by Dr. Robert Strait, N.D. set the standard in our industry 10 years ago and we have been trailblazing ever since.
Our Founder and Medical Director
I‘m Dr. Robert Strait, N.D. and I’m the founder, owner and medical director of Full Potential HRT Clinic. I’ve been specializing in the field of anti-aging and regenerative medicine since January 2013. Through my passionate and relentless research and work I’ve become one of the renowned experts in my field. I love what I do and I will continue to pioneer in my field to make sure that Full Potential HRT Clinic continues to be the premiere anti-aging and regenerative medicine clinic in the Pacific Northwest.
Full Potential HRT Clinic had humble beginnings. Dr. Robert Strait, N.D. first opened the doors to what is now called “Full Potential HRT Clinic” in January of 2015 in southwest Portland, Oregon in another provider’s office off of Capitol Highway. Originally, at that time, the clinic was called “Full Potential Men’s Clinic.” His decision to open the clinic as a “men’s clinic,” specializing in providing testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and comprehensive hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for men, along with revolutionary erectile dysfunction treatments for erectile dysfunction, was made due to his limited resources available at that time – not out of a plan to only remain as a “men’s clinic” or “testosterone clinic” for men long-term. From that time to April 2022 the clinic moved and doubled its space and then moved and doubled its space again. In April 2022 the Portland clinic moved from downstairs to upstairs in the same location and quadrupled its space! Currently we enjoy working hard to help thousands of patients in Portland, Oregon in our beautiful 7,500 square feet of space. We also opened another clinic in Renton, Washington in January of 2016 which has since moved to another location where it also doubled its space. The Portland clinic changed its name from Full Potential Men’s Clinic to Full Potential HRT Clinic in April 2018. The Renton clinic changed its name from Full Potential Men’s Clinic to Full Potential HRT Clinic in March 2023.
Dr. Robert Strait, N.D. chose to attend the nation’s oldest and most prestigious naturopathic medical school – National University of Natural Medicine – because he believes in the six principles of naturopathic medicine. He also believes that the understanding and implementation of these principles by physicians and their staff is required to provide patients with optimal testosterone replacement therapy and comprehensive hormone replacement therapy, and with the other therapies our clinic provides, in order to help patients to live and to perform to their full potential.
A holistic approach is an approach that considers the entire patient, mentally, emotionally, and physically, with all their symptoms and signs and diseases. We know that an important part of a holistic approach for any human being to maintaining optimal health and lifespan is living with optimal hormone levels. There is no way to maintain optimal health and lifespan with low testosterone or low levels of other hormones.
We believe that testosterone replacement therapy and comprehensive hormone replacement therapy is inherently holistic because by identifying and addressing these hormone deficiencies we improve the health of the entire patient, mentally, emotionally, and physically, including all their symptoms and signs and diseases.
Given that nowadays low testosterone and low hormones in general has become an epidemic, and given that low testosterone and low hormones in general causes significant suffering and increased risk for serious and life-threatening age-related diseases, it is required that at some point – it’s only a question of at what age – testosterone replacement therapy and comprehensive hormone replacement therapy be a part of each patient’s overall health and lifespan optimization plan.
Address the Cause
Whereas most of the time – sadly – other medical practitioners will prescribe a different prescription medication to (usually unsuccessfully) attempt to suppress each and every symptom of low testosterone or low levels of other hormones, we cut right to the chase and address the root cause of all of the mental, emotional, and physical symptoms – and age-related diseases – by expertly prescribing customized and individualized testosterone replacement therapy and comprehensive hormone replacement therapy. Instead of having to manage adverse-effects of the use of various prescription medications, our patients side-benefits of the therapies we prescribe. Our patients enjoy holistic symptom resolution, and optimal health and lifespan.
Do No Harm
Our number one goal with the design and implementation of our testosterone replacement therapy and comprehensive hormone replacement therapy plans is to first make sure that our plans are safe, that we make sure to help our patients feel better and have better health. We have a long and proven track record for safety. Safety is where all of our plans begin. However, with enough expertise and experience, safety and efficacy are not exclusive. The best plans, our plans for our patients, are inherently both safe and effective. Starting with the idea of do no harm we work to optimize our patients’ levels of testosterone and other hormones, so that they can enjoy maximum symptom resolution and prevention and treatment of age-related diseases.
Doctor actually means “teacher” in Latin and it’s no coincidence. We know that in order to truly help our patients that we have to work together with them as a team. As much as patients are willing and able, we teach our patients how they can do their part with diet, exercise, and other self-help approaches to optimize the efficacy of their testosterone replacement therapy and comprehensive hormone replacement therapy.
Nature Sustains and Heals
We believe that nature is brilliant. Two-time Nobel Prize winner, and molecular biologist, Linus Pauling, Ph.D., coined a term we believe is highly applicable to this tenet – “orthomolecular medicine” – which is the practice of preventing and treating symptoms and diseases by providing the body with the optimal amounts of substances which are natural to the body. The human body requires the right kinds of molecules in the right amounts in order to be symptom-free and to be in optimal health, and in order to live as long as possible.
Consider Vitamin C. We know that if a human being is severely deficient in Vitamin C that they’ll suffer from “scurvy,” which is when human beings will literally start to fall apart, starting with bleeding from their mouth and skin, and their teeth falling out, and so on. People can survive and not suffer from scurvy as long as they have small amounts of Vitamin C in their diet. But most people don’t have an optimal amount of Vitamin C in their diet, and therefore are not as symptom-free as they could be, and aren’t as healthy as they could, and won’t live as long as they could live. It’s a whole spectrum.
It’s the same thing with testosterone, human growth hormone, and other hormones, which are other examples of “the right kinds of molecules,” which we want to have “in the right amounts,” which is why we sometimes call testosterone “Vitamin T” at our clinic. Yes, we can survive – which just means that we can avoid death – while having low testosterone and low levels of other hormones. Yes, at a certain age, we all have low testosterone and low levels of other hormones. But with contemporary medical technology we are now living in a time when we can benefit from testosterone replacement therapy and comprehensive hormone therapy and therefore maintain optimal hormone levels, and be as symptom-free and as healthy as possible for as long as possible. With this in mind there is no rational reason to not consider testosterone replacement therapy and comprehensive hormone replacement therapy.
Prevention is Best
Symptoms and diseases are easier to prevent than they are to reverse. This is why we believe it’s important for men and women to be careful to not fall into the trap of believing that they’re too young to be suffering from low testosterone or low levels of other hormones, and therefore delay treatment. Low testosterone and low hormones in general can happen at any age nowadays. This is why we make it so easy and inexpensive for men and women to come into our office to see one of our expert and experienced doctors and have a comprehensive evaluation for low testosterone or low levels of other hormones, including having their blood drawn and having comprehensive lab results, along with a comprehensive lab review and discussion regarding potential treatment options, with potential benefits and risks, over two separate hour-long appointments with our physicians and staff for only $300.
Commitment to Outstanding Customer Service and Convenience
Our physicians and staff are trained to work towards making sure our patients experience fantastic service and convenience from their very first phone call. We’re always happy to answer the phone and happy to help. As a team and clinic we enjoy what we do and helping our patients. Our patients can tell.
Direct Medical Care Model
When Full Potential HRT Clinic first opened we worked hard to provide the highest quality medical care to our patients while “accepting insurance.” We realized though that no matter how hard we tried there was no way to do this, and especially not in a way that is cost-effective to our patients. We stopped accepting insurance a long time ago, and we have since implemented a healthcare business concept called “direct medical care.” Under this model of medical care our patients pay a low monthly fee to our clinic to become members of our clinic and receive specified services and products, and benefit from wholesale pricing on additional services and products.
We don’t “accept insurance.” Instead, we provide our patients with superbills and receipts for provided medical services and products, which they can submit to their health insurance, HSA, FSA, etc for reimbursement.
We use our incredible economies of scope and scale to make our direct medical care model highly valuable for our patients. Any patient who does their due diligence will quickly realize that the quantity and quality of medical care we provide, including services and products, not to mention the outstanding customer service, is worth a lot more to them than $222 per month – yet that is our standard monthly fee. We do this because we care.
