From 1972-1976, Mr. Platt worked as an internist in an office setting. From 1977-1980, he worked as a hospitalist in a number of Los Angeles hospitals. Starting in 1980, he began following patients in convalescent hospitals. This experience ingrained within him the importance of preventive medicine in order for a person to avoid winding up in an extended care facility. For the most part, he took his patients off all their medications, which allowed many of them to be discharged home. Between 1980 and 1985, he was the medical director at about 40 different convalescent hospitals.
In 1995, Mr. Platt opened his clinic which has been dedicated to treating the underlying cause of illness, getting hormones into balance, teaching patients the importance of eating correctly and using nutritional supplements.
His book, “The Miracle of Bio-identical Hormones,” brought patients to his clinic from all over the country and the world. The experience that he received from treating these patients was a major factor in his education about hormones.
Mr. Platt recently published a manual for health care practitioners, “The Platt Protocol for Hormone Balancing,” which is a companion to his book. It represents a strong complement to the information practitioners receive at conferences. It has a chapter on managing adrenaline – and he suspects that it is the only information available in print that deals with the natural control of this hormone.
Because of Mr. Platt’s approach to medicine, namely getting people off their medications simply by treating the underlying cause of illness, he was forced to surrender his license (but not his MD) by the California Medical Board. Their “experts” felt the way he treated his patients was so dangerous that he should not be practicing medicine. And yet, after five years of relentless investigation, they never had a single complaint from a patient that he had harmed them.
