What's your biggest patient education challenge?
How does it feel when you meet patients for the 1st time and learn that their primary care doctor has been telling them that “hormones are dangerous” and that they shouldn’t take them?
- Have colleagues told your patients estrogen and progesterone cause heart attacks and strokes, even though they can’t provide any data that supports what they’re saying?
- Have patients been frightened to death by providers who don’t know the truth about hormones?
- Is uninformed doctors‘ presumed knowledge about hormones instilling fear in your patients?
- Have you had patients come to you, saying . . . “My regular doctor says I shouldn’t even be taking hormones and that you’re going to kill me!?"
Do your patients recognize all the benefits of hormones, beyond symptom relief?
- Do your female patients recognize that menopause is more than just hot flashes?
- Do female patients get that hormones should be taken for life, not just 10 years post-menopause?
- Do men that come to see you worry that testosterone increases risks of MI and prostate cancer?
- Is it a struggle to to educate the lay person about the positive long term benefits of BHRT?
Do patient fears prevent them from ever receiving the benefits of optimal hormones?
It’s the “pink elephant in the room” – women fear breast cancer more than any other risk.
In your practice, do you . . .
- see women who have heard for years that hormones are deadly?
- wonder about prospective patients who never make an appointment because of cancer fears?
- tire of talking about how oral estradiol doesn’t increase heart attack, stroke, blood clots?
- find yourself re-hashing the Women’s Health Initiative study with each new patient?
- hear men say they’ve always heard that “testosterone causes blood clots?”
- Do you have the time to sit with each patient, explaining hormone optimization in detail?
- Do you ever just get sick & tired of having to say the same thing over & over again?
- Are you able to share adequate educational information in an office visit?
Teaching patients about hormones can be rewarding . . . and time-consuming.
Ever felt the need to make short videos to address hormone concerns? If you’re like most providers, you just don’t have the time to make these and figure out a way to make them accessible to patients.
Have you had to deal with confusion about “estrogen,” Premarin®, and estradiol? Do patients grasp “normal” versus “optimal” hormone levels? Do patients understand the difference between progesterone vs. progestin?
Are you doing all your patient education yourself or do you have someone on your staff that helps get patients up to speed?
- Are your MAs prepared to answer every question patients ask?
- Do staff members understand all the long-term benefits and risks of bioidentical hormones?
- How difficult is it to train new employees?
- Does your staff teach consistent, standardized topics you want patients to understand?

Wildly fluctuating estradiol levels and declining progesterone contribute to perimenopause being called "no man's land." As a hormone optimization specialist, you know that these women present some of the most complicated and difficult cases.

- Estrogen dominance and the counterbalancing role of bioidentical progesterone

Very well done!
I saw the brochures that you sent over and watched the video. Thanks so much for doing the video and making the website! They are very well done! (And I would expect nothing less from you!)

You need to be here next year!
Just gave Simple Hormones a shout out at the IMMH (Integrative Medicine for Mental Health) conference. I told everyone how awesome you are and how the website is super helpful. Hopefully you get 100 more subscriptions! You need to be here next year!

Columbine Family Practice,
It calms their minds
The Simple Hormones program has been awesome. I have patients that are kind of on the fence . . . They usually come back to me and wanna do the hormones when they might have not if I had just talked to them about it. I think it really just calms their mind about it. You do a good job of educating them. Good videos.
Simple Hormones Saves You Time and Money
Patient Education Investment Pays For Itself!
Save 1 Full Hour With Each New Patient
Charlie Wispert, PA, from Augusta, GA, told me that Simple Hormones saves him 1 full hour in educating his new patients. Dr. Herman Pang in Peoria, AZ says he's able to spend less time going over the basics and can get right down to more important topics.
If you see 5-10 new patients a week, the hours you save can really add up. Even if you’re having a medical assistant help out with patient education, it can take them away from other important tasks.
Simple Hormones Could Save You $5200/year or More
If you see just 5 new patients each week and you pay an MA $20 an hour, Simple Hormones could save you $5200 a year. Multiply that savings by 5X or 10X if you do all the teaching yourself.
How much is an hour of your time worth?
$100? $200? What would your life be like if you had an extra 5-10 hours each week to bring in more clients or spend more time with your family?
Hiring a Patient Education Specialist Is Expensive
If you really did hire a dedicated patient education specialist to work in your office, it would be pretty expensive:
- $50,000 to $60,000 in salary minimum (2-3X that for an experienced pharmacist)
- $10,000+ in benefits - vacation, health/dental insurance, 401K, etc.
- Interviewing, orientation, training, scheduling, human resources stuff
- Finding the right person might not be so easy
The Simple Hormones Advantage
Simple Hormones has a lot of the benefits of a dedicated patient education specialist at a tiny fraction of the cost. Right now you can subscribe to the program at the lowest rate I have ever offered - less than 1/2 of 1% of that $60K+ cost of hiring somebody. You’ll be locked into that rate for as long as you stay subscribed.
Simple Hormones . . .
- teaches patients on their own time, at no further cost to you
- answers questions patients ask over and over again, so you and your staff don’t have to
- is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year
- never complains, asks for days off, requests vacation, calls in sick, or takes breaks
- never has disputes with other employees, feels taken advantage of, or shows up late for work
Busy practice? Simple Hormones can help even more!
If you see over 100 new patients every month, like Dr. Kim Weaver in Moore, OK, the time and labor cost savings from Simple Hormones could be even more dramatic. Imagine what your life might be like if you had 10, 20, or more extra staff hours in a week?
Subscribing to Simple Hormones 2.0 ("hiring a patient education pharmacist," if you will) is a small investment in yourself and your practice that pays for itself many times over.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this through Worldlink membership?
No. Simple Hormones is no longer part of Worldlink Medical's membership program. You'll still be able to send patients through the 2 programs previously bundled with your membership, at least until the membership expires on May 31, 2021. Additional programs like Action Steps to a HEALTHY BRAIN, Simple Hormones for PCOS, Simple Hormones for Perimenopause, and Thyroid: It's That Simple are only available directly from Simple Hormones.
Who is Simple Hormones 2.0 for?
Simple Hormones 2.0 is for healthcare practitioners who are dedicated to hormone optimization. Providers who educate their patients about the benefits of optimal hormones don't always have the time to spend hours with each new client. These programs reinforce clear and simple hormone education for your patients, reminding them of what you've already told them. Simple Hormones addresses your most difficult patient education challenges and saves you time and frustration in the process.
Do my patients become your patients?
No. I provide this material for information and educational use only. I am not entering into a patient-practitioner relationship with anyone who enrolls in my programs. If you refer someone to enroll in my courses, I have no idea if they are a patient of yours, are considering becoming a patient, or are simply a friend you’ve sent my way. I will view any person who enrolls in my courses as a “student.” I’ll keep their information private, but I won’t be in possession of any protected health information under HIPAA.
How can my patients watch the videos?
Once your subscription has been processed (within a few days), I’ll send you an email with your unique program website link (url). You provide the link to your patient, either directly or through your website. The link leads them to your patient portal page. Step-by-step video and written instructions show your patient how to enroll and start watching the video material.
Patients get access to the videos immediately after they’ve enrolled. The viewer decides when to start and when to finish. Patients can watch the videos as many times as they like, on any device, at any location, and at any time, 24/7/365.
Can my portal look like my website?
Yes. While I'm not a web designer, I can make some changes to your Simple Hormones patient portal to make it integrate seamlessly with your site. Similar colors, fonts, images, and overall style can improve the user experience so that clicking from your site to your Simple Hormones portal makes sense. There is a 1-time fee for patient portal customization, though I occasionally offer it as a bonus at no charge.
What's the cost to the patient?
The patient pays nothing. Your yearly provider subscription covers the cost of the patient education material. (Note – some of this material has been available directly to patients at $47.)
How do I share my link with patients?
You can share your Simple Hormones portal link with patients in several ways:
- Hand them a paper business card with the web address
- Email the link to patients
- Place a link to your portal on your website
- Give patients the link verbally in the office
- Walk the patient through the easy signup process
Are videos available on a smartphone?
Yes. The video is available on any device (iPhone, Android, iPad, PC, Mac, etc.) at any time. The program is designed to work with any smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.
Can I link to my portal on my website?
Absolutely! Many providers use Simple Hormones as a screening tool for prospective patients. A link on the provider's website sends patients to the program, where they can learn more and decide if they want to make an appointment.
Do you offer brochures or handouts?
I have a couple of "Menopause Blueprints" that explain estradiol and progesterone as the most effective treatments for menopause symptoms. Those are downloadable within Simple Hormones for Menopause. In my informed opinion, printed brochures have so many limitations - they get outdated quickly, they need to be very large to provide useful information, they cost a lot to print and ship - that they aren't usually worth it. The whole point of Simple Hormones is to take a complex topic and boil it down to bite-sized videos because it's not practical to convey the same information conveniently on paper.
Can I post videos on Facebook?
I don't offer access to individual videos. The power of Simple Hormones is that's it's a program. The program takes patients from a place of uncertainty about hormones to having the information they need to accept and embrace the concept of hormone optimization. Chopping the program apart into individual videos makes them much less powerful in transforming patients' lives.
