Dr. Joel Yaffa, M.D.
Joel Yaffa, M.D. graduated from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. He practiced as a family doctor in Southern New Jersey for 12 years. His shift to the Targeted Hormone Balancing method began with a personal medical crisis in his own family. He began researching treatment alternatives and consulted with dozens of physicians across a broad spectrum of medical disciplines. Happily, the medical crisis passed, and Dr. Yaffa was now enriched by the enormous amount of knowledge that he accumulated during that period. As a result, he made a decision to incorporate Targeted Hormone Balancing into his day-to-day medical practice.
In addition to being a full-time practitioner of Targeted Hormone Balancing, Dr. Yaffa has become a strong and well known advocate for Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy. In 2008 he organized several “BHRT World Summit” Internet Seminars which brought thousands of participants together with dozens of the most well-known and highly regarded BHRT experts in the world.
Dr. Yaffa provides training, mentoring, software and practice-building consulting, to both new and experienced practitioners. He combines his decades of clinical treatment experience with a sophisticated Internet based software system that allows patients to describe symptoms and sets up a feedback-based dialog between patients and medical practitioners.

Dr. Lloyd Thompson, M.D.
Lloyd Thompson, MD received a BS in Biology from Lamar University and an MD from The University of Texas. Postgraduate training included Pediatrics, OB-GYN, Internal Medicine, Psychiatry, and Surgery at the Brackenridge Hospital in Austin, Texas.
On completion of training he opened The Family Clinic of Beaumont, Texas and began the general practice of medicine and surgery. During those early years he began to realize people suffering Overweight and Obesity need more help than a copy of a low calorie diet and warnings about related health problems. He began to work with a limited number of overweight children and adults. The demand for his help from patient and physician referrals grew rapidly. He began seeing patients in small groups on weekend and evening hours.
After 12 years of a large General and a limited Bariatric Medicine practice, he accepted a position as medical director of The Obesity Treatment and Prevention Center of New Orleans. There his work was limited to Bariatric Medicine. On several occasions he was used by The Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners as an expert on use of appetite suppressant medication. By invitation, he gave lectures to The American Society of Bariatric Physicians, concerning his development of a specific form of group therapy as a part of the medical treatment of overweight adults and children.
Presently Dr. Thompson is extremely concerned with the ever-increasing rate of Obesity related deaths in the U. S. and the lack of good nutritional health education of our children. He is near completion of a book he hopes will help.
