In this one-minute audio clip, Jonathan Wright, MD tells how to find a doctor who understands how to properly administer bioidentical hormone replacement (and is likely to have taken Dr. Wright’s 3-day course on how to do this).
You can find a doctor by searching for a doctor in your area on the website for the

Jonathan Wright, MD is the author of the fantastic book on bio-identical hormone replacement, Stay Young & Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement: The Science Explained (2009).
ONLY go to a doctor who knows what they are doing
In 2004, in Suzanne Somers’s book, The Sexy Years, her doctor was using these hormones WRONG
On page 268 of his book, Dr. Wright notes that:
“While Suzanne Somers has brought an enormous amount of public attention to BHRT (Thank you very much, Suzanne!) the use of 1 milligram or more of estradiol daily (without estriol, as described in The Sexy Years in 2004) may have put her at unnecessary risk.
“But after we discussed estriol for her 2008 book Breakthrough, I suspect she may be balancing her estradiol with estriol now.
“Most women can achieve the same effects with considerably smaller quantities of estradiol along with estriol, which offsets the carcinogenic tendencies of estradiol (and in some cases estrone, which the body naturally forms from estradiol).”
I, [Larry Hobbs], assume that Suzanne Somers, who lives in Malibu, California (north of Los Angeles) was getting her bioidentical hormone replacement from a well-known doctor in Los Angeles.
However, it seems that this doctor did NOT know what he was doing at the time.
That is why it is ESSENTIAL that you find a doctor who knows exactly how to use bioidentical hormones and who has taken Dr. Wright’s 3-day course on the topic to get certified that they know what they are doing.
In the book, Dr. Wright goes on to state that “100% Bio-Identical Estradiol Products Are Risky”.
In other words, make sure you find a doctor who knows what they are doing when it comes to bioidentical hormone replacement.
I would ONLY go to a doctor who has taken Dr. Wright’s 3-day course on how to properly administer bioidentical hormones and do the follow-up tests required to ensure proper hormone levels.
I would call and ask if they have taken this course, and even ask to see their certificate BEFORE choosing them to help you with this.
I would start by looking for doctors near you on the ACAM website, and then call and ask them if they have taken Dr. Wright’s course.
If they have NOT taken his course—even if they tell you they have given hormones to thousands of patients—I would look for another doctor who has been certified by Dr. Wright who is the foremost expert in this area.
Remember, Suzanne Somers, who I assume was going to a famous doctor in Los Angeles, who may have been treating lots of movie stars and famous people, did NOT know what he or she was doing, and was doing it WRONG in 2004, and may have been putting Suzanne Somers at risk for cancer and other problems.
Don’t be a Guinea pig.
