“I came to Dr. Ohri’s office seeking help with a specific health issue that I felt was not getting fully addressed by my primary care physician. Dr. Ohri was easily able to help resolve my concern, and did so in a much more in-depth and effective manner than that of my general practitioner. Dr. Ohri has also helped me with some health issues other physicians I have been to either did not pursue or were not as knowledgeable of the underlying causes to help find a way to even begin treatment for.
I have been a patient of Dr. Ohri going on two years now. Through her diligent efforts she has consistently been able to make accurate diagnoses of any health concerns I’ve expressed. As a result, she has also been able to pinpoint methods of treatment that have been highly effective for me.
One of my main areas of treatment is hormone replacement therapy. Once I hit my mid to late 30s, I started to feel less energetic, had a sense of “fogginess” at times, and felt less like the “old self” of my younger days. Now in my mid to late 40’s, these symptoms seemed more pronounced. I just figured it to be the “normal aging process” I had to put up with. Getting hormone therapy through Dr. Ohri’s office (in my case pellet implantation) has made a great difference in how I feel. I now have greater energy levels, a better sense of clarity/alertness, maintain my weight more easily, and gained better overall muscle tone. My libido level has also increased, after having lowered over the course of time. My overall sense of well being has vastly improved from this course of treatment. Dr. Ohri’s in-office procedure makes this process very easy and nearly painless.
Dr. Ohri has also helped me with what feels to have been long-time issues I’ve had in terms of dealing with bouts of nausea, “upset” stomachs, a feeling of general malaise, and allergy-like symptoms. Through targeted and methodical testing, she to determined that I have “leaky gut” issues- something my regular doctors never even considered when I would raise ongoing concerns about always seeming to “not feel quite right” most of the time. Dr. Ohri has customized a treatment plan for me to address this issue, which has been making a positive difference in how I feel on a daily basis.
Dr. Ohri has made a marked difference in my overall health and well being. She is highly knowledgeable in her field, and is always seeking additional information to find new and novel ways to effectively treat her patients. She has a terrific “bedside manner” and spends a great deal of time with you to assess and treat your specific medical needs, explaining things fully all along the way. I never get the feeling of having the typical 10 to 15 minute “rush” visit that seems endemic in general practices these days.
I am extremely happy with the level of care I receive and highly recommend Dr. Ohri’s services. I trust her judgment, and consider myself very fortunate to be one of her patients. Further, her staff is equally as friendly, extremely helpful, and dedicated to helping patients in meeting their health care needs.”

“OMG! I had my 1st consultation with Dr Ohri in early February. I was feeling totally exhausted all the time, sleeping only 3 hrs, dragging around all day, putting on weight for no reason & unable to lose it no matter what I did. If that’s not bad enough, I was cranky, irritable, impatient, & basically antisocial because I was so tired all the time. My hair had thinned out over the last year, with a bald spot on my scalp. Sugar & salt cravings, hot flashes were out of control. I was miserable, ready to jump off a bridge. I’d forgotten what it was like to feel good or have a good day.
Dr Ohri listened to all my symptoms, kindly asked me very probing questions, went over my lab results with me one by one, & then talked with me about her recommendations for addressing each of my problems. I was so happy to finally find a doctor whom not only listened so carefully to me, but understood & was able to address each issue in a very targeted manner with kindness & knowledge of what I was going through. I felt hope talking with her that I could feel good again. She was very honest with me that my issues would take some time to improve, but assured me repeatedly that I would start to see some changes within a reasonable amount of time. She recommended several pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements & hormones prepared especially for me. Without the 1st month I started to notice my energy level improving, I was sleeping better, & my hot flashes also starting to improve.
I just had my 2nd consultation with Dr Ohri (3 months), & I am feeling amazingly better. I actually can smile again & like being with people again! I lost 25 lbs as a result of the hormone treatment, have much more energy, sleep 7 hrs now. I will continue my regimen as she recommends because it’s a difference of night & day for me. And if that’s not enough, Dr Ohri is so easy to talk to. And her response when I’ve emailed her with a question or concern has always been prompt & very caring. I consider her an angel that God has sent to me to save my life. Ladies, if you’re not feeling like yourself because of aging issues or hormonal imbalances, you owe it to yourself to consult with Dr Ohri. She will be your angel too!
Thank you, Dr Ohri, for what you do for all of us!”
“I am a 58 years old, working full time, commuting 50+ miles a day, husband (no kids) and I have an active lifestyle being involved in church and civic groups.
The holiday season of 2010 was when the you-know-what hit the fan. I had a sinus infection that just wouldn’t go away, even with a course of antibiotics and decongestants. My PCP put me on a course of prednisone which sent me into a full-blown depression tailspin, coupled with just not feeling well in general.
In January 2011 I started seeing a psychiatrist and was put on an anti-depressant. That got me feeling much better, but still not 100%. I had been on Levoxyl for 14+ years due to hypothyroidism, and the symptoms were starting to get worse again. I started researching natural (dessicated) thyroid, and switched meds in late Summer 2011. I began to feel much better, and in the course of doing more research, I happened on BodyLogic’s website. I signed-up for the program, and took my initial lab tests in November. My first appointment with Dr. Ohri was in late December – I immediately liked her, and was amazed that a doctor would spend over an hour getting to know a patient! She not only gathered my medical history, but was really concerned about how I was CURRENTLY feeling. Based on my lab results, she prescribed a course of bio-identical hormones which I began in early January. Within a week or less I was feeling better. Her follow-up phone consult was in mid-February, and things were progressing nicely. By the time of my April office visit, all of my hormones were where they should be or close to it – one of the hormones was actually removed from my regimen because it was at a very robust level.
Because I’m feeling so much better, I’ve cut my antidepressant dose in half and hope to wean off it by the end of this year. I’ve noticed a positive effect on my weight as well – it seems a bit easier now to lose weight!”
“I am a 58 year old female with a busy job, family and home to maintain. My work days are 10 – 12 hours long, 5 days a week. The weekends are always busy taking care of and enjoying my husband, my family and my home. The past few years have been a struggle to keep up with it all. I felt 20 years older than I should, often tired and drained. I had difficulty sleeping more than a few hours a night. I couldn’t focus and felt I had attention deficit. I couldn’t remember what I had for breakfast.
I was on Synthroid for hypothyroid for close to 10 years, and although I was closely monitored every 6 months by an Endocrinologist, my hypothyroid symptoms progressed. A sonogram technician told me my thyroid looked like swiss cheese because the Synthroid does that. That was worrisome. I had joint aches and pains all over, hair loss, acne, thin dry skin, no libido, and many other symptoms. Every day was another ailment. In spite of trying to eat healthy most of the time, the past few years my bad cholesterol got worse and my blood pressure was going up, which used to be low to normal. I did not want to start on any other prescription meds because I feel they often do more harm than good. I always try to find the natural cures for everything. I took vitamins here and there, but often wondered if they were doing me any good because I wasn’t sure exactly what I really lacked and needed. Family doctors usually don’t test and tell you what vitamins you need – they usually prescribe medicines.
Last November, in the middle of one of my sleepless nights, I was reading an email about bio identical hormones. I clicked on the link for Body logic MD and watched the seminar. I had most of the ailments they talked about. The hormone imbalance symptoms they described were exactly what I experienced. They talked about doctors prescribing prescription medicines which is not what your body is lacking. It’s a band aid for an underlying problem.
I made an appointment with Body Logic MD and saw Dr. Ohri in January of this year. I received saliva and blood testing ahead of time, and I completed the extensive questionnaire on the website before my appointment date. During my appointment with Dr. Ohri, she went over all of my results. She explained each of the line items and how they related to how I was feeling. She addressed each of my symptoms and wrote out a detailed listing of everything we spoke about along with instructions of what I should take or do and when. I had severe adrenal fatigue- by noon my cortisol levels were almost none. My DHEAs and hormone levels were very low. In spite of taking 1,000 mg of vitamin D, I still had a D deficiency. I Dr. Ohri tested my thyroid levels. In spite of being on Synthroid for nearly 10 years, my free T3 which is rarely tested by physicians and is responsible for 75% of thyroid function was low.
Dr. Ohri prescribed and ordered me the specific bio identical hormones and nutrients I was lacking and needed to alleviate my symptoms. I began the recommended hormones and nutrients around the end of January. I can happily report that after 3 months of following the regimen Dr. Ohri prescribed for me, I am a new person.
I really began to feel much better within a few days. I feel 10 years younger, rather than 20 years older. I am able to sleep 7 – 8 hours a night. I have even slept a few 9 – 10 hour nights when I didn’t have to get up for work. I don’t feel tired until the end of the day when I should feel tired. I can focus and think clearer. I have regained my memory. My hair is getting thicker, my skin and nails are stronger. My daily aches and pains are gone. I don’t feel the tired, drained feeling that I often felt. I have much more energy and patience with everyone and everything. I lost 10 lbs so far and hope to lose a lot more. My family and friends tell me I look younger and happier, and that’s how I feel.
I highly recommend Body Logic MD, and specifically Dr. Smitra Ohri to all of my family and friends. She is extremely knowledgeable and well trained in this field. She is a warm, wonderful, caring and friendly person. She is very easy to talk to about anything. She loves the field she is in and it shows. She loves helping everyone regain their youth and vitality. When I think about the how terrible I felt before January, and how young and wonderful I feel now, I thank God I took that step to go see Dr. Ohri. She definitely improved my life. I look forward to future appointments with Dr. Ohri to learn of the many other health and anti aging options I can benefit from.”
“As we approached our mid 50’s we felt like to were going down hill. Hearing about bioidentical hormone replacement we searched and found Bodylogicmd. When we first met Dr. Smita Ohri we were immediately taken with her passion for what she does and her compassion for us as individuals and our needs.
If it is possible, she finds a way! She has been working with us individually since fall 2014 and we feel absolutely much better than we could have imagined and we have only just begun! She pinpoints our needs and is working with us to bring us to our fullest potential! We feel good, and have much more energy, for everything! We are excited as we approach this time of our lives. Dr. Ohri has given us hope for a wonderful future full of energy and a renewed desire for life. One of the best decisions we have made!”
