Dear Dr. Carlson,

I just wanted to take this time to thank you so much for making me feel like a new person! I never knew until now what a difference the bio-identical hormones could make in my life. Since I started working with you in getting my hormones balanced, I cannot believe the difference in the way that I feel. If it had not been for the complete blood work-up that you had done on me, I hate to think what kind of condition my body would be in now. I have been going to the same medical doctor for the past ten years and I thought that he was doing the correct kind of blood tests when I had my annual physical.

I always felt that I had a problem with my thyroid but the tests always came back normal according to my doctor because they were in a certain “range” that he considered normal. Thank God, you checked my actual thyroid function and immediately started the procedures to find out what the problem was. After finding the nodules on my thyroid with the ultrasound and then having the biopsy done made me realize how lucky I was to have you for my doctor. I was so scared that the biopsy results would not be good but as you know, they came back benign.

I wish that I could talk to every woman that is having problems with her health and let each one of them know about you and your clinic. There is no reason that anyone should have to go through life with the pain, depression, and a sense of “just existing” from day to day like I did. I now have the energy to do things that I haven’t been able to do in years. When I get up in the mornings, instead of being as tired as I was when I went to bed the night before, I have had a good night’s sleep and am ready for my day! I am free of the daily aches and pains that I used to have and I look forward to each day as a blessing instead of just wanting to crawl back into bed and ignore what’s going on in the world.

Thanks again so much for giving me a reason to live each day to the fullest and to feel like a young woman again! If there is anyone that has any doubts or questions about my treatment with the bio-identical hormones, please feel free to give them my phone number and I will be glad to tell them my story.


Hi Rob,

I am a health oriented individual now 65 years old. For many years I have taken vitamins, exercised often and watched my diet. I stopped smoking after 30 years four years ago. In recent years I have focused more on health. For several years I have been taking care of my Mother. I see her every day. I have personally seen the ravages of age in assisted living facilities and now a nursing home. I became a true believer that health is wealth as we age. This experience peaked my interest in hormone replacement which I had been studying for several years. After interviewing three hormone replacement specialists I decided to work with Dr. Carlson in Sarasota, Fl.

I have now been on his prescribed hormone replacement therapy for 3 months. The change in me is nothing less than remarkable. I sleep better; have more energy; am more mentally alert and focused; have a great sex drive and libido; my stamina has improved dramatically; my lung capacity has gotten better; I look younger; my skin tone is noticeably better; I have fewer facial wrinkles; age spots on my hands have disappeared, my hair has become thicker and healthier looking; I lost my belly fat completely; my body has become leaner and more muscular; my hearing has improved; I have even sustained energy, never feeling down during the day or evening; I drink less coffee; I feel better and because of that have an even more calm, rational and happy life.

My wife is pr-menopausal and had all of the symptoms of that disorder. She is a successful Mother and real estate agent, a college athlete of 50 in perfect shape. Suddenly she found herself depressed, tired, lacking in sex drive feeling weak. Our love life was shot. It took everything she had – and she is an emotional and physical rock – to get through the day. The doctors did nothing to help with all sorts of meds. I took her to see Dr. Carlson. Two months later she is her old self again barreling through every sort of problem of any kind like a whirlwind, swimming an hour a day, smashing tennis balls past me and finally closing some real estate deals! Our sex life has got to be some kind of a record and we are happy as two little peas in a pod.

I hate to sound like some kind of promoter or advertiser. I’m not. I am just writing what has actually happened to us.

FE, Jacksonville

I am feeling better and have been off my depression medication for about two weeks!

DD, Cayman Islands

Thank you so much for taking your time with me today. I greatly appreciate you and all your knowledge and wisdom.

EJ, New York

I’ll start off with thank-you again as I really do appreciate you, your great staff, and your age management clinic.

JW Florida

I thought I’d write to you to let you know how well I’m doing on my bioidenticals. I really notice it in regards to my tolerance of hot weather. I don’t always feel hot and I don’t need the ac on 68degrees! That alone is worth the money. I also feel good. I want to break out in the James Brown song!!!

PC, Florida

Dr. Carlson was so personal and caring. He made me feel at ease and confident of his ability. His follow-ups were excellent also.

KS, Florida

Thank you for sharing your genius, in the reconstruction of my husband’s heart. Just imagine, 10 by-passes later… And he has a brand new start! I will never forget you DR. CARLSON, and the gift of life you gave to Dan. For you, it’s probably routine by now, but remember this, “To a lot of us, YOU’RE A VERY `SPECIAL` MAN.”

JC, Florida

My operation was of a caring capable physician who was always available without appearing rushed. And through all this you maintained a sense of humor.

I have heard from so many people that you are a wonderful, excellent doctor and surgeon. I now know this to be true! But, I would also like to thank you for going that “extra mile.” I am so thankful you didn’t let them “call the code” that night- and you gave us our mom back!!

You are truly an “angel of mercy.” There are not enough words to express my gratitude to you for saving my husbands life. In my lifetime, you are by far the most caring and compassionate doctor that I have ever known.

PD – Sarasota, FL

I read through all the articles you sent – great information. I started the cream and the progesterone capsule at night I’ve been amazed to discover how much sleeping can actually be done in a night!!! I had no idea. Although I still wake up a couple of times, instead of watching TV for hours, I go back to sleep. So this is what I’ve been missing 🙂 Thanks again for everything!!!


Lisa and I met you in your office on December 2nd to begin your HRT program. The numbers on my lab report were not good, (really bad actually).I weighed 234 lbs. You strongly encouraged a low carb eating plan, which I began the following day.On January 1st, I weighed 230 lbs. Also, under your guidance, I began to wean myself off a blood pressure pill, atenolol, which I had been taking for several years. On January 31st, I weighed 219 lbs. and was no longer taking atenolol. There were many positive changes taking place also. I had more energy, felt better, and was able to increase my daily workouts.

On February 28th, I weighed 218 lbs., but my clothes were still getting loose, as I continued to lose inches, still sticking to our new low carb lifestyle. Less than two weeks ago, I added the HCG to your program, and on March 6th, I weighed 214 lbs. My weight has not been that low since the late 1990’s.

We had a consultation that day, and you gave me some of the best news I have heard, when you gave me the updates on my lab report. It is remarkable the success I have had on your program in less than 100 days. I can’t wait for the next 90 days.

I feel like you have reversed the aging process. At 53, I truly feel like I did when I was 30. While this outlines my results so far, it would take a long conversation to really describe all the positive effects your program has produced for me.

Bob Kennedy


The medications you have me on?  Amazing!

I feel like a million bucks.  I have energy.  I haven’t felt this good since my 20s.  I sleep like a rock at night.  Thank you!”
