Menopause Signs & Symptoms with Dr. Gisele McKinney

A “life change” every woman must experience, menopause occurs when the ovaries have lost most of their functioning eggs and begin to slow their production of the female hormone, estrogen.  This hormonal shift can come with a great deal of uncomfortable symptoms including night sweats, hot flashes, mood swings and even difficulty sleeping. 

To learn more about the signs and symptoms of menopause, as well as the pros and cons of various treatment options such as hormone replacement therapy, join us for Menopause in a Flash with Dr. Gisele McKinney, an obstetrician/gynecologist on staff at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital for Women.    

A native of Chicago, Illinois and graduate of Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, Dr. McKinney is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine and completed her residency at Chicago’s Cook County Hospital.  Prior to moving to Lake Charles, Dr. McKinney was on the staff of Martin General Hospital in Williamston, North Carolina.  She most recently saw patients at Southwest Louisiana Center for Health Services.
