About Us

How We Came To Be

The Better Living Clinic in Akron, Ohio was founded by Michael P. Tricaso DO in the summer of 2013 after his disappointing search for a local physician to manage his own Testosterone Deficiency. There were not many options for Hormone Replacement Therapy in the Akron area, so Dr. Mike started treating himself along with a small group of friends and family out of his home doing consultations at the kitchen table and self injection lessons in his bathroom. This small group quickly grew into a respectable client base that led to the beginning of the Better Living Clinic. Dr. Mike not only offers Hormone Replacement to men but to women as well. As the client base grew, so did the needs of the clients leading to the other programs now available including weight loss programs, injectable supplement programs and Anti-Aging Programs that promote Optimal Physical, Mental and Sexual Health.

Michael P. Tricaso DO - "Dr. Mike"
Founder of The Better Living Clinic
Anti-Aging & Hormone Replacement Specialist

I have been a Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physician for over 15 years, however, after struggling to find a local Hormone Replacement Clinic that I felt good about going to, I decided to pursue Anti-Aging Medicine myself. I started taking care of my family, friends and myself doing consultations at my kitchen table and self-injection education in my bathroom. It wasn't long before it was clear that I needed a legitimate clinic where I could care for my patients.
The Better Living Clinic opened in the summer of 2013 and has been going strong ever since.
As cliche as it sounds, I really love what I do. Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you how passionate I am about HRT and Anti-Aging Medicine. I have participated in every single program that I offer at BLC. I know first hand what my programs can do for you.

I would love to sit down with you and tell you all the ways that Hormone Therapy and Injectable Supplements can help optimize your Physical, Mental and Sexual Health. I can help you lose fat, gain lean muscle, increase your energy levels, enhance your libido, improve your self esteem and help you look and feel like you did when you were younger.

"I have the tools you need to feel and look better. Don't settle for just feeling 'OK' when you could feel 'GREAT'. I am not a fan of "Mediocrity", rather I choose to embrace "Optimum". That is the place where you want to be. Trust me and I will take you there."
