"Her ability to present scientific information on stage and on paper is outstanding. Without reservation, I recommend Donna for provider education and training, practice building, presentations, and program development."

Chief Medical Officer of Vitality Health Services

"My experience with the BHRT Training Academy gets FIVE STARS! As a new Nurse Practitioner, I was afraid that I would not be able to comprehend the complexity of the course. The BHRT Training Academy presents the material in small bites of sensible information that can be completed conveniently on your own schedule. Along the way, there were links to excellent hormone management presentations by top leaders in their field that further expanded the knowledge of the course. Those presenters included Dr. Deborah Matthew, Dr. James Wilson, Dr. Jim Paoletti, and Dr. Lindsey Berkson! In addition, the ongoing Mentor Classes are phenomenal for answering patient specific questions and navigating aspects of BHRT practice. The information simply can't be beat!"

"My hands-on pellet training was much more than just learning how to insert the pellets in a hotel conference room. Dr. Matthew is very personable and knowledgeable. As a small group, we observed insertion of pellets in several of her clinic patients (with permission) and practiced pellet insertion under direct supervision of Dr. Matthew and Donna White. They answered any questions we had and covered important aspects of business strategy and patient approach. It was a pleasure to meet Donna White after listening to hours of her presentations! She really is as delightful as she sounds in the course and Master Classes."

"My colleagues are raising their eyebrows at the amount of valuable information I have learned in this course. My patients are delighted to finally have some validation of their symptoms, and I am happy to offer appropriate testing and options for relief. This is an excellent course, and I would recommend it to any provider who would like to be able to offer the same relief to their patients."
