About Us

How We Came To Be

The Better Living Clinic in Akron, Ohio was founded by Michael P. Tricaso DO in 2013. Dr. Mike started his clinic after his disappointing search for a local physician or clinic to manage his own Testosterone Deficiency. There are not many family doctors that offer TRT to men in the Akron area and most the ones that do, are no educated on the proper regimens men need. So in the summer of 2013, Dr. Mike's small group of friends and relatives that he was treating by way of consultations at his kitchen table and self injection lessons in his bathroom, 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 and wants of the clients leading to the other programs now available including weight loss programs and injectable vitamin and amino acid programs.

Michael P. Tricaso DO - "Dr. Mike"

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 patients. The Better Living Clinic opened in the fall of 2013 and is going strong. 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 you Physical, Mental and Sexual Health. I can help you lose fat, gain lean muscle, increase your energy and metabolism, enhance your libido and 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.'

 Here are some of the Hormone Therapy Programs I currently offer:

I also offer Injectable Vitamin, Mineral and Amino-Acid Therapy for Energy, Weight Loss, Athletic Performance, Erectile Dysfunction, Immune Support, Detoxification and General Health. Multiple Combinations of these injectable supplements are available.
