About Linda Winegardner, M.D.

Linda Winegardner, M.D.
Dr. Winegardner

Huntersville North Carolina Bioidentical Hormone Doctor Linda Winegardner, M.D. at Family Healthcare of Lake Norman is Board Certified in Family Practice and has more than 25 years of experience in urgent care and family medicine. She earned her BS in Biology from Converse College, graduated from the Medical University of South Carolina School of Medicine, after which she successfully completed her family medicine residency. In addition to her traditional approach to treating acute and chronic illness, she has over 15 years of experience in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). She is certified by the North American Menopause Society and has completed courses for prescribing bioidentical hormones. She is also certified by BioTE Medical for prescribing and implanting bioidentical hormone pellets.

Dr. Winegardner’s passion has always been women’s health issues such as those encountered between the ages of 35 and 65. Many of these issues relate to hormonal changes. She has found that her male patients experience similar hormonal changes that affect the quality of their lives as well. In the past, traditionally managed medical practices were limited by what insurance companies would allow doctors to prescribe. About 15 years ago Dr. Winegardner broke away from that medical model of prescribing one-size-fits-all treatments and began treating her patients with customized programs that uniquely addressed each patient’s individual needs. She had great success with BHRT creams, patches, capsules and injections but she found that these delivery methods fell short in consistently addressing the patient’s symptoms. She needed something better for improving her patient’s lives.

Linda Winegardner, M.D. has concluded, after many years of experience, that bioidentical hormone pellets are the best modality for improving hormonal health. The BHRT pellet approach not only addresses her patient’s related hormonal symptoms but enhances their lives and health in many other ways. Dr. Winegardner believes in this personalized approach to medicine.
Dr. Winegardner is licensed in North Carolina; Board Certified by the American Board of Family Medicine, Certified by the North American Menopause Society, trained by the Professional Compounding Centers of America, and certified by BioTE Medical in pellet therapy.

Patient Bioidentical Hormone Reviews

“I have worked with Dr. Linda and her staff for about 15 years. 1. Never a problem with a same day apt if needed or soon after. 2. Monitors meds closely! I find it important that a PCP monitors all meds from other providers to assure unintentional addiction doesn’t occur. 3. Being and independent provider, Dr. Linda’s care isn’t subject to the “car wash” effect. Dr. Linda isn’t constrained to 3 minutes of consult with each patient. She sits down, and thoroughly reviews your last progress from last visit and your current complaints. You don’t feel like you are being rushed. 4. Her staff has been consistently with her for years. They are always pleasant, efficient, easily access Dr. LInda or Vince (Accts Mgr)”
-Kathleen P.


“I really feel that they offer quality care, they will check the cost of something before doing an expensive and possibly unnecessary test. They have been available to me on short notice. The staff are friendly. I would highly recommend.”
