Meet Dr. Marissa Magsino

For 20 years, Dr. Magsino dedicated her practice to treating various diseases and medical conditions. In 2006, with the onset of premenopausal symptoms, she began her journey to find a natural way to replace her own hormones. She pursued a fellowship in Functional and Regenerative Medicine centered on bio-identical hormone management. Upon completion of her fellowship, she worked for a large anti-aging company and for several years practiced treating hormone imbalances in middle-age men and women.

While working through her own physical challenges of stress incontinence, she received innovative stem cell therapy procedures and noticed incredible facial and vaginal rejuvenation. This personal experience inspired her to create BUMATAKO, and through her own practice, is one of the few physicians in the U.S. trained to perform PRP procedures on the face, vaginal and penile areas for rejuvenation.

BUMATAKO, a Filipino term meaning "I’m young again," is a iconic representation of Dr. Magsino's personal journey of reverse aging, beginning with hormone balancing and the revolutionary process of PRP to rejuvenate the body.

A Natural Approach to Health and Vitality

 

With patient concerns about claims of increased cancer risk from taking synthetic hormones, there is more and more demand for solutions that help bring the body back into hormonal balance naturally. This is the basis of functional medicine—optimizing the function of the body and its organs naturally—and why we use bioidentical hormones for our patient's hormone replacement therapies.

The body knows what it needs and assimilates natural nutrients, hormones and red blood cells to improve overall health and vitality. As we age, the elements that keep us vital and healthy diminish. Stress, poor diet, exposure to the elements and other influences deplete internal resources we were born with and age us inside and out.

But now we can turn back the clock and regain our youthful vitality and energy naturally.

We can revitalize our wellness by including natural solutions that help our bodies replenish what was lost. For example, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments are now being used to increase collagen in the face and also to improve joint healing and reduce inflammation from conditions such as tendonitis.

Our approach is to leverage the body's ability to produce and rejuvenate itself naturally. We constantly seek innovative approaches and new resources to provide non-invasive, natural treatments for our patients and always focus on the total body approach to wellness.

Dr. Magsino, I want to thank you for the pellet treatment. My sexual life has improved 100%! You are a miracle worker! My body has changed the sensitivity, stamina, desire is back, and I feel normal again!
— Yvonne A.
We are both able to lift more weights and do longer cardio than before our pellets. Our sex life is tremendously better. We’re 30 years old again when in fact we’re nearly 70. Mental outlook is better, tendons and joints don’t hurt anymore either.

Dr. Magsino is an amazing doctor. She really takes a personal interest in our welfare and how we’re doing and has a lot of amazing information. We’ll never be off bioidentical hormones—the quality of life is great and we feel like we’re in our 30s again. It’s a mental and whole body change and it put us back to normal and that’s what we were missing.
— Jackie and Virgil S.
It’s been two weeks since my pellet procedure, and I am feeling a lot better! I am finally sleeping! I don’t feel as tired and no PMS this month! Yay!!! THANKS!!!
— Maria L.
I came to Dr. Magsino about a year ago after the gel stopped working for me. My numbers had plummeted to an all time low. Concerned for my health, I followed my wife’s advice and scheduled a visit.

After my second and third visit, and looking at my numbers, I was convinced that this was the best money I have ever spent for my health. My quality of life has improved dramatically. My thought process became clear. The energy levels and the desire to live a better life became my priority. And after several years of marriage, my wife and I have had the best year of our lives. Thank you Dr. Magsino for helping me improve my health.
— John M.
Dr. Magsino’s passion for her clients is first and foremost of importance and I appreciate this tremendously. With each ongoing conversation about the deeper issues I was dealing with, plus the diagnostic testing, we discovered that my brain fog, lack of energy, confusion in decision making and feeling “off” was due to an imbalance in my hormones and could be repaired with Balanced Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).

The effects of receiving BHRT have been life-giving. The quality in which I am able to focus, make decisions and feel able to cope with life have improved in a way that touches each area of my life, personally and professionally. This one body that we each have needs extreme self care and when it is unable to function optimally, you will not function optimally. It’s that basic. I am thrilled with the changes it has brought into my life so I can be my true self inside and out.

I highly recommend Dr. Magsino for all your functional medical, cosmetic and BHRT needs. Not only is she a kind and compassionate woman, she is knowledgable and wise beyond what you receive from most doctors. I’m honored to call her my favorite physician because she gets to the root of my issue, not just treating my symptoms. Her insight and intuitive practice will impress you.
— Carolyn M.
As a Fitness Instructor, Yoga Instructor and Life Coach, I go all day, sometimes from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. and if it wasn’t for Dr. Magsino, I don’t know what I would have done. Her guidance to place me on hormone therapy—especially the pellets, as we travel a great deal—has given me such vitality physically, emotionally and sexually!

All of the pre- and post-menopausal symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats and lack of sexual desire have disappeared. At 56, I feel better than I did when I was in my 40’s.

Dr. Magsino is so informative, helpful and kind. She truly listens to your needs, symptoms and desires as she puts you on a path to an extraordinary life!
— Jude M.
At 53, I had resigned myself to feeling depressed, low energy and memory/brain fog. My primary care doc put me on Lexapro anti-anxiety medicine, it had gotten so bad. I had been on an Estradiol patch for 10 years after a complete hysterectomy, and STILL felt like crap.

And then I found Dr. Magsino. WOW. She told me I shouldn’t feel that way, and that I needed to have my hormones balanced. My blood work revealed ALL of my hormones were flatlining. She prescribed a balanced, natural hormone regimen including pellets and oral hormones, plus a few supplements to help kick it all into action.

The results could have not been more amazing. I can actually THINK like I used to—no more brain fog. My depression has totally vaporized and I am OFF Lexapro completely. I don’t have to do the patch anymore because I now have pellets, and my energy level has been tripled. The best part is that my sex life has become incredible—my body is responding and doing things that I never thought it could and I couldn’t be happier (and my boyfriend is too)! Thank you, thank you, Dr. Magsino!!!!!
— Terry P.
Dr. Magsino,

I feel FABulous! I actually have the energy to exercise and STILL get through the day! I’m not craving sugar like I was, I’m interested in being intimate with my husband (big yay!), and I didn’t even know I wasn’t sleeping well! Now I know I wasn’t, because I actually wake up feeling refreshed, not like I need another three hours. Thank you so much!
