Keeping up with the latest medical journals and treatments is the key to the Holtorf Group finding solutions to chronic medical conditions when other doctors cannot. Shockingly enough, most doctors rely solely on what they learned in medical school and don’t bother to keep up to date with the latest advancements and research.

The doctors on staff are experts and pioneers in their fields.

Dr. Holtorf is a diplomate and a board examiner for American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine (ABAAM).

Dr. Holtorf received his doctorate of medicine from St. Louis University with residency training at UCLA. He has personally trained physicians across the country in the use of bioidentical hormones, hypothyroidism, complex endocrine dysfunction and innovative treatments of chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and chronic infectious diseases, including Lyme disease. He was the founding medical director and developed the protocols for Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers and other centers across the country.

Patient Response

Many patients feel like they’ve been given a new lease on life after receiving treatment at the Holtorf Medical Group, Inc.

Tracey D., who went to Holtorf Medical Group for  her chronic fatigue syndrome, has stated, “They will use their knowledge along with your own knowledge of how your health has changed; and they will partner with you to help you get better. Most of my health issues went undiagnosed for over fifteen years.  Dr. Wightman discovered many conditions that he was able to correct or put in remission.”

Likewise, Steve B., who was treated for weight and health issues, has said,  “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… It’s been just over 12 months since I saw Dr Wightman and things have changed a lot. I dropped to 190 lb and never felt better.”

Sydney C. was impressed with how knowledgeable her doctors were, “From my first appointment I could tell that this person knew what he was talking about! Hormones play an enormous role in our body’s health…I have just lost 15 pounds. I have boundless energy.”

Bonnie L., suffered from exhaustion, depression and severe anxiety before finding some relief at Holtorf.  “Dr. Holtorf truly practices proactive, cutting-edge medicine. It really does feel like he works miracles. I have referred several friends to him, and they have all had the same reaction. My family is considering moving away from the Torrance area, but no matter where I move I will fly back to see Dr. Holtorf. There is nobody else I would trust to manage my thyroid issues. Thank you so much, Dr. Holtorf!!”

  1. Wow, Dr. Holtorf — Your practice sounds a lot like Hormones by Hart, by Cheryle Hart, M.D. As a patient of hers I have heard that she is moving to the Bay Area or East Bay. She is looking to open up a bio-identical hormone practice. That would sure be great if you two got together!

    At 43 years of age with illness or sickness going back over 20 years, at times feeling like an 8o year old, needing a cane, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, ibs, and a very long list of multiple diagnosis, treatments, bad experience with medicine, multitude of doctors and so on, I have practically given up on getting well and staying healthy unless I take action to do so for myself. Medications used as a first line of treatment has destroyed my body, cellular damage is difficult to repair. Naturalist or homeopathic treatments are costly and unaffordable. So as a proactive patient invested in my own health, I have had to learn my body and how it reacts to external elements, food, medication, and take an active approach to educating myself on my conditions and alternate treatments. We are told as patients to speak up, educate ourselves etc, but many doctors do not like educated patients who ask questions that undermine their authority as the doctors, whereas, it should not be misconstrued as a threat to their knowledge, expertise, or otherwise, instead a consideration for all relevant information about said patient to coincide with overall treatment.
    I am fortunate compared to many and less fortunate than some however, chronic illness is equivalent to chronic stress, and that affects the body and its functioning. Medical practioners have repeatedly told me to eliminate stress, not to worry, it is nothing, its all in your head, and many other negative things, whereas it is with prayer and hope that I am able to really trust doctors again. My trust is in God to heal my body, and lead me to the doctors who do his work with full hearts instead of full pockets. If I lived in California I would head over to see you, at this time I do what I can with multiple illnesses and seek out partners as doctors who treat the whole patient. Cannot imagine living to old age for if I have felt as I have at a young age, imagining old age in this vessel is just too disheartening. May you be blessed as you help others obtain and maintain health. My hope is not in the world but in God and He being the ultimate physician.
