I visited the Torrance Holtorf Medical clinic a few years backthe protocol worked beautifully. When I moved back to my home base of San Francisco, I went off the program and I paid dearly for that for a long miserable year, remembering what I felt like. I then found the clinic in Foster City and made the trek there to start my protocol once again. Back again--the work they are doing is important.

Dr. Sterrett at the Holtorf group in Pasadena has a great mixture of compassion and knowledge. I feel cared for. This is a refreshing change from my past experiences of doctors.

I went to see Dr Holtorf for asthma. It was a relief to see him after other Doctors I have seen. His staff was very nice and he was very attentive to my needs. I followed his plan and I feel much better. I would definitely recommend him to another person with similar ailments. I feel much better.

I've been a patient for over 3 years at the Holtorf Medical Group but just had my first appt with Dr. Lyster, so I don't know her that well yet. I had Dr. Camileri previous to her and LOVED him, would rate him a "5". I trust Holtof Medical Group.

Dr. Holtorf thinks out of the box for me, he comes up with medications or other options that may be used for another illness but might help the symptoms I have with the diseases I am dealing. I LOVE Dr Holtorf. I am feeling much better, which was not the case the numerous other doctors I saw.

I have to thank the Holtorf Medical Group for turning my health around. They correctly found the causes of weight & health issues that had existed for 15 years. For years, I spent a lot of time and money on care that left me a 315 lb hormone wreck. I was tired of taking thyroid medicine that seemed to make my weight worse and not better, I was tired all the time, and not getting the answers from all the different doctors and specialists I had seen. I was close to giving up, but someone recommended the Holtorf Medical Group and I read the site and said ??Hey, that??s me too.? It??s been just over 12 months since and I dropped to 190 lb and never felt better.

The symptoms of thyroid and adrenal problems cleared up enough that people don??t recognize me, and even my driver??s license and passport photos get me in trouble ??Hey this huge guy in this photo does not look like you, etc..? I went from 4X shirts to medium, and have a 36? waist that was a huge bulge one year ago. I spent 15 years chasing weight and medical problems that were linked to even more trouble before that

I tried hard to exercise it off, with no luck. I ate a low fat diet and was very active, and grew anyway to 245, then 260, then 280. No diet ever seemed to work. I saw a specialist and he found my triglycerides to be way off the chart high, but had no explanation since I was so active. I then developed most of the symptoms of hypothyroid, and this was confirmed with a very high TSH.

For years, I took Synthroid but the weight stayed on and got worse. I wasn??t happy with it and suspicious that something was missing. I would always ask endocrinologists why the high triglycerides and aren??t we missing something? They never had a good answer. At my first visit to Holtorf Medical they pretty much figured out my case just from listening to my story and checking what medicine I was on. I was on a lot of Synthroid and huge in size, so he suspected (and later confirmed) reverse T3 syndrome. This was complicated by adrenal failure that I am pretty sure dates back even farther than the thyroid, but no one knew.

I started hormones, including pure T3, and things really cleared up. I lost 10 pounds a month until I got to 190. I could write a whole page on the problems that went away when the weight did. It??s just been remarkable.

I first came to Holtorf Medical Group on the advice of a friend about 2 1/2 years ago. I had seen my regular physician 6 months prior, concerned with my weight and lack of energy. He had told me that at my age (42, at that time) that I would have to work out for an hour a day 5-7 days a week to lose it and I was only tired because I was overweight. After 7 months of 1 hour workouts 6 days a week, I lost 7 pounds. That was it!

Dr. Holtorf and his Physician's Assistant, ran the tests needed to understand my problem. They worked with me to get the right treatment and I now feel like a normal me!! I haven't felt this good in years! Life is good.

I have suffered with severe fatigue for 4 years following a major surgery. . I have consulted many doctors whether medical or holistic. I was told I was likely depressed or anxious and prescribed anti-depressants, anti-anxiety, or a host of natural supplements. Nothing got rid of the fatigue. I felt so tired some days all I could do was shower and then go back to bed. Being a very active, high energy person, I found this condition extremely frustrating.

In January I went online desperately seeking someone who specialized in fatigue and came across Holtorf. I liked what I read and especially appreciated the 27 page health questionnaire. I found Dr. Wightman to be very knowledgeable in his diagnosis- different than the guesswork I had experienced with previous doctors. He put me on T3 and progesterone as well as several supplements and minerals. Within two weeks I felt my energy returning and have continued to feel improvement over these past months.

I honestly feel I have gotten my life back. I am very appreciative and have recommended Holtorf to family members and friends, some of whom are also getting treatment and feeling better.

No other facility has helped me as helped me as much as this clinic for FM and CFS. I went from doctor to doctor and was always disappointed until I found someone who understands and wants to treat these illnesses. I was the first time I did not know more than the physician. I wish I found them 10 years ago.

I see Dr. Wightman ?? a doctor at Holtorf??s practice. He is treating me for PCOS, Hashi??s, Lyme disease, and type 2 diabetes.

I had been to countless doctors who offered substandard treatment. I was in constant pain and gaining weight very rapidly. My blood sugars were crazy and all I ever got was Levoxyl and lectures about lifestyle changes.

After running the right tests ?? Dr. Wightman discovered my Lyme (contracted 15 years ago) was back in full swing (5 other doctors refused to test me for Lyme saying my arthritis was untreatable anyhow.) I had adrenal insufficiency, high reverse T3 levels (so high he took me totally off Levoxyl and put me on pure T3), and he also found I had dangerously low levels of several very important hormones and vitamin D. My A1c was only 5.1 so he was the first doctor to believe me I was not stuffing my face with bad food.

I have been following his new regime for 2 months now (the right medications and supplements.) I have lost 20 lbs (no change in diet ?? my diet was fine) and am virtually pain free. Before, I could not pick up a coffee cup without extreme pain. Now I am back to lifting weights. Plus, my huge goiter of 20 years from Hashis is now totally gone ?? normal sized again ?? I can swallow!

I say out the window with ??Gold Standard? testing ?? which we all know is run by the insurance companies. And hear hear to doctors that actually do not blame the patient for their problems but who look outside the box for answers and for treatment.

I have been going to Holtorf Medical Group for a year now. I was able to return to work. I am up now 6 out of 7 days a week. They listen and do extensive lab work. They are very encouraging and have been able to prescribe the proper treatment. I was very, very sick when I went to Holtorf, needing a miracle. What you read on their website is true.

I flew down to L.A. to go to the Holtorf Medical Group in Torrance, coming all the way from Everett, Washington, to consult about my severe CFIDS case, one that I could find no help with in my (Seattle) area. I was in the office for over 4 hours, and left with meds & supplements. I felt 1000% better in only a few months. I want to thank the Holtorf Medical Group from the bottom of my heart for understanding and treating me and others with CFIDS! There is just such limited understanding of this life-sapping illness. They gave me my life back again. There's just no way to express how I felt re-joining the human race!

I am in Oregon, and I could not find a doctor who knew what to do for me. I ended up driving down to the bay area and going to Holtorf Medical Group. I saw Dr. Camilleri and he was wonderful. It was the first time any doctor I've seen actually knew what to do with me.

I finally had had it with my current doctor when I asked him what treatments he used for other patients like me, and he said "I've never had a patient like you". That was NOT helpful and very frustrating. While I adore my hometown doctor, my issues were definitely way out of his league!

I just got bloodwork done yesterday for my next appt with Dr. Camilleri and the lady at the lab remarked at how different the bloodwork ordered was compared to what the local doctors order! Thanks to Dr. C, I now have a handle on my issues. Everything is not yet perfect, but is definitely an ENORMOUS improvement over how I was feeling before.
All and all -- while it was not an easy or inexpensive endeavor to travel so far from home for treatment, it was most assuredly worth it, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

The Holtorf Medical Group is amazing. Ever since I started hormone replacement therapy and their shots, I feel like a new woman. I went from feeling tired and having no energy to feeling energized and full of life. It is like a blanket of doom was lifted and I can see and feel like never before. They also have a wonderful caring staff, which is nice.

I have been lucky enough to finally find a great thyroid doctor in Torrance, CA at the Holtorf Medical Group who knows about T3. After a year of taking increasing amounts of westhroid which is like armour, I wasn't getting better. Still gaining weight (40 pounds total), dragging through the day, no libido, all kinds of problems. I was desperate, so I found a new doctor. Now I've been on T3 for about 8 months and I'm finally getting close to my correct dose. We had to work our way up and finally for the first time in over 2 years my weight has started to go down. I lost 10 pounds almost instantly, I feel more energy. I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. He monitors my rT3 with every blood test. He said when it fell below 100 ( i think that was the target) that I would start to feel a lot better, and he was right. I just reached that number and that's when things started to change for the better. I think RT3 is especially a problem in people who have ever dieted strictly because it is the mechanism that prevents humans from dying during a famine. If you are able to come to Torrance, these guys really know what they're doing.

I went to several specialists before finding the Holtorf Medical Group and my symptoms were dismissed as simply ??getting older?, ??it??s due to stress? or ??you must be depressed?. I was made to feel I was crazy and offered little more than an antidepressant and sent on my way. The doctor here listened to my story and I could tell was really interested in finding the problem (what a difference). The doctor ordered extensive testing that no one ever considered and found multiple hormone deficiencies including low thyroid not detected by the other doctors. I have never felt better. What a difference between the Holtorf Medical Group and all those other doctors I have been to, including the so-called specialists in endocrinology that couldn??t find the problem that was found on the second visit. We need more of these clinics. A little closer would be nice but I am so happy I found them.

As a 51 year old Registered Nurse and was working at major medical centers in Los Angeles. I was under the impression that I had access to the best physicians. In the span of one year, I saw a total of 11 physicians??3 internists, 1 gastrointestinal, 2 rheumatologist, 2 neurologists, 2 psychiatrists, and 1 endocrinologist. I was finally diagnosed with CFS and fibromyalgia with no effective treatment. I had to quit nursing as my symptoms and shortness of breath confined me to my apartment.
I started seeing Dr. Holtorf and his group. After being bedridden for a year with no hope of recovery from my previous physicians, I knew Dr Holtorf was my only chance for regaining a life. I started to slowly regain some of my stamina back. Within 10 days, my shortness of breath was gone! For the first time in over a year, I could walk around the block! I dramatically improved and am very grateful. The quality of life I have now would not have been possible without The Holtorf Medical Group.

I am very pleased with the results of my treatment by Dr. Wayne Wightman and the staff at Holtorf Medical Group. I came to Dr. Wightman after years of being unable to lose weight, declining energy levels, rising blood pressure and constant body pain. Other physicians told me that everything was normal. I had run out of hope! Dr. Wightman listened to my story, believed me and began to address the problems. Following their recommended treatment plan I have been able to lose over 50 pounds. I have energy, my body no longer aches and I have renewed enthusiasm for life. Today I feel great and continue to lose weight. I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Wightman and the Holtorf Medical Group. They gave my life back to me!

Relief Finally:

I had my thyroid irradiated due to hyperthyroidism (Grave??s disease). I was told that I would have to take a thyroid pill substitute for the rest of my life. I had hoped the endocrinologists I spoke with and who afterwards became my doctors for the next 5 years knew what they were doing, but I learned learned that he and subsequent doctors really know very little and cared even less. Before my thyroid was zapped, I weighed 145-150 pounds (5??10?) and had a 30/32? waist. I was lean and young and full of energy.

I was placed on a daily dose of Synthroid--soon after which I began to drastically gain weight. No matter how much I stuck to the healthy regimen I had always lived by, my body was changing in a very uncomfortable and unattractive way, increasing in size pound by pound, month to month, year by year. At each visit, I mentioned my anguish because I had at some point gained a gruesome total of 63 pounds, but my doctor replied it was all fine and ??that??s the way it is.?

I could not comprehend nor believe that this was just ??the way it is?? so I chose to do even more delving--I discovered The Holtorf Medical Group, Inc. located in Torrance, California on the internet and drove there. After reading all of the well referenced articles on the site, I felt confident that I had found the answer and remedy to my personal thyroid nightmare?.what a relief!

I met with the nurse practitioner and explained my dilemma as to how I got to this frustrating, disastrous, physical and emotional point; she assured me that with the correct management of thyroid medicines, which Holtorf Medical Group specializes in, I would start feeling better and looking better and be better right away. She ran specialized lab tests that no one had ever sent me for prior and started me on a T4/T3 combination.

Before I embarked on this new system I was gaining weight even when eating minimally, and today I can state with great happiness and joy that in the two months that I have been following the Holtorf Medical Group guidelines, I have lost 21 pounds? and I expect to continue, with the hopes of possibly getting back to the shape I had before this all happened.

I am very proud to know of Kent Holtorf and his Medical Group, and his diligence in discovering how to truly manage a problem many people in my situation suffer with, no thyroid or hypothyroid. I say with much appreciation that he is truly a masterful and wonderful man because he and his caring staff are the only ones I have found to have discovered a system that truly works and helps. I am finally relieved and on the road to being the person I used to be. Bravo!

P.S. And please note that they help people with so many other medical issues, not only thyroid problems. I say make an appointment, you will be more than pleased with what they know and how they help you on your road to recovery. They certainly are helping me.

Relief Finally:

I had my thyroid irradiated due to hyperthyroidism (Grave??s disease). I was told that I would have to take a thyroid pill substitute for the rest of my life. I had hoped the endocrinologists I spoke with and who afterwards became my doctors for the next 5 years knew what they were doing, but I learned learned that he and subsequent doctors really know very little and cared even less. Before my thyroid was zapped, I weighed 145-150 pounds (5??10?) and had a 30/32? waist. I was lean and young and full of energy.

I was placed on a daily dose of Synthroid--soon after which I began to drastically gain weight. No matter how much I stuck to the healthy regimen I had always lived by, my body was changing in a very uncomfortable and unattractive way, increasing in size pound by pound, month to month, year by year. At each visit, I mentioned my anguish because I had at some point gained a gruesome total of 63 pounds, but my doctor replied it was all fine and ??that??s the way it is.?

I could not comprehend nor believe that this was just ??the way it is?? so I chose to do even more delving--I discovered The Holtorf Medical Group, Inc. located in Torrance, California on the internet and drove there.

I am so lucky I found them. My younger sister has just been diagnosed with Graves' disease, and it reminds me of the TERRIBLE time I had finding a doctor who really cared, studied, and understood about the thyroid. I can't tell you the IDIOTS I went through before I found you. They have been a blessing in my life.

Dr. Koftan at the Holtorf Medical Group was able to diagnosis my problem when no one else would dig deep enough. I can??t recommend them highly enough. Unfortunately, I had to travel from New York for help, but it was so worth it. We need more doctors like Dr. Koftan.
