Before I met you at the Medical Health Institute, this is what I looked like. I was always tired, no matter how my day was going. I had no energy and struggled in the bedroom. I felt depressed and worthless, and life was starting to get extremely difficult for me. Fast forward a couple of months, and this is what I look like three months later, thanks to your expertise. This is the best I’ve ever felt since my early 20’s. I work long, hard days, and still have tons of energy to hit the gym. My anxiety and depression have disappeared. My energy levels are through the roof, recovery from exercise is incredible, and my sex drive is on fire. My wife and kids notice the difference since I started as well, and as I play more with both of them, and still feel like a million bucks. I want to say thank you for helping me out and making me feel alive again. I’ll definitely get the word out to all my friends and family, and everyone I know as you guys have changed my life.
I had just turned 60 and throughout my entire life, I dreamed of being fit and healthy, but work and life got in the way. Now that I retired, I had the time and the desire to improve my fitness level and health status. I started on a program, working out about five times a week, sometimes with a trainer. I did get more robust, but not much happened with my body and way of feeling fatigued. I wanted to get leaner and stronger to prevent sarcopenia to age gracefully, but even with all the supplements I was taking, I did not see much change.
Turning 64 in 2016, I discussed with my doctor my frustration about not being able to alter my body composition with regular weight training and careful eating. He reviewed my blood work and pointed out that my total testosterone was 220. He said that 220 was below average and asked if I had ever considered testosterone optimization therapy, which would involve injections. I said no to him because I was not ready for that, and I did not know anything about the benefits and implementation of testosterone optimization therapy A.K.A “TRT”.
After another six months of training and manipulating my diet, still, no real positive results appeared. My friend Toby had worked with Michael Bertonatti at Medical Health Institute in Florida, and he suggested that I call him.
I began treatment on April 1, 2017, and the “before” picture was taken the last week of March 2017. My body composition on March 31, according to the InBody impedance machine, was: weight 197 lbs; lean muscle weight 99.2 lbs; and body fat 11.4%.
After about six weeks of testosterone therapy, I finally noticed significant changes in my body composition. My InBody measurements now read weight 198 lbs; lean muscle weight 105.2 lbs; and body fat 6.3%. I felt good, and I was more aggressive in weight selection at the gym, I had more energy, and my libido improved. In January of the next year, I reached 109 lbs of muscle, 10 lbs of muscle in 9 months!
Injecting was easier than I thought b/c this wellness clinic uses insulin syringes for injecting testosterone. In contrast, I heard traditional clinics still use a harpoon and make it unsustainable to keep up with injections. I kept a spreadsheet on the wall to remind me when to take my prescriptions at the suggested times and days. I went back to my doctor a year later, and he was super impressed with my gains and how I looked. He was amazed at my new testosterone level being around 1050!
Now that a year and a half has passed, I believe I have reaped the benefits of testosterone therapy with no downside. I am grateful for the help the Medical Health Institute has provided me. I have met a few men at the gym who are on TRT, but their doctors (and thus themselves) are clueless about the finer points of TRT. Dr. Eberwein and Michael are head and shoulders above most general practitioners because of their experience and knowledge on age management medicine. Dr. Eberewein has been very helpful, and I trust him to keep me on a safe and sane regimen. He looks great and indeed carries the results of testosterone treatment. I loved the fact that he could relate to me because he is on therapy himself. I cannot recommend their services enough, and as a matter-of-fact, 3 of my friends have become clients since then.

The Medical Health Institute has restored my self-esteem and my future. In my very late 40’s I had gotten soft, and the weight kept piling on, and it wasn’t good poundage. While I was working out just as hard, I also had increased my cardio and tightened my diet, but the body fat kept growing. As I have heart disease in my father’s family lineage, I became increasingly concerned. I was a ticking time bomb, and I had to make a change to avoid the family fate as all of my father’s line had a major heart attack in their late ’40s or, at the latest, early ’50s.
To add to this concern, my afternoon’s work focus became almost impossible without a nap, and most of the time, a ’20 minute power nap’ didn’t work. Lastly, let’s not talk about the ‘bedroom’ activity as it was ‘not so good’. Enough said! While the pictures say it A LOT, it is not ALL of the story. Here is what has happened with Medical Health Institute’s treatment plan: muscle increased, fat began to fall off, eventually 50lbs of it, I have the focus for the entire workday & longer, and the bedroom activity was HUGELY improved, in a BIG way!!
Now, I feel fantastic, I look better, and I can focus throughout my entire workday! Thank you so much to the team at Medical Health Institute, especially Dr. Rudolph Eberwein and Michael Bertonatti. I am the real result of the real expertise of the Medical Health Institute team.
I am 41 years old, and this is my story on how I lost weight and body fat that changed my life. How did I lose over 35 lbs and over 50% of body fat in 180 Days? I can tell you in a few words: hormone optimization, peptides, targeted supplementation, discipline, hard work, and a proper diet. One of the biggest things that changed my life is joining the Medical Health Institute team. My testosterone level was at 166, and my primary care physician said that this was an average level b/c of my age. I wasn’t convinced by my docs answer, so I researched and then found the Medical Health Institute and got an entirely different solution, and which made sense to me. With help from this team, they tailored out a treatment based on my blood work results, symptoms, and medical history information. In my consultation with Dr. Eberwein, he was very thorough explaining my lab results, and everything he said made sense. Once I got started on personalized treatment, I raised my testosterone levels to an optimal range, and most importantly, that was safe for me to take. This simple adjustment gave me a ton of energy that allowed me to work out six days a week. In my professional career, I was able to work without feeling fatigued, my confidence was through the roof, my mental creativity felt unreal, and my sex life was finally restored. The thing that made me get serious was the photo taken in late July 2018 while on vacation. It wasn’t until I saw the picture that my wife took of me. I was in total denial about being overweight. I did not see myself as overweight; I weighed 243 pounds with a body fat of 38.6%.
Now, I have lost over 35 lbs. and went from wearing a pant size of 40 to 33 inches- that’s 7 inches off my waist! I felt great buying new clothes and getting others tailored to fit my new frame. Now the real work starts, with the continuing help of the Medical Health Institute, I know I will reach my goal to get below 10% body fat. I need to stay on track and focused on keeping the weight off this time. Now the hard work starts, I must stay focused on my new healthy way of life to ensure that I don’t slip back into my old eating habits. I will do whatever it takes to stay fit because I am genuinely committed to a healthy way of life and a fitness program.
I am incredibly thankful for this team’s expertise, how I got treated, and the personal attention I received throughout my whole journey with them was impeccable. This team is super passionate about helping others restore their vitality and health, and everyone in the group walks the walk. This is, by far, the best and most knowledgeable hormone optimization clinic in town. If you can relate to my story, I strongly suggest you call this wellness practice and get a consultation. Once again, a big thanks to the whole team at Medical Health Institute.
I began using bio-identical hormones, peptides, and targeted supplementation roughly ten years ago. In a short amount of time, I noticed my mental focus was sharp as a tack, my strength was back, my libido felt like if I was a teenager again, and I was loving life. I also noticed the fat was coming off easy, my muscles were getting denser, I no longer felt fatigued mentally nor physically, and I could practice medicine at my best once again. This meant the world to me because now I can provide my patients (at all times) the best version of myself. The critical factor I realized was I was now able to show up to my day at 100% in my personal life as a father, husband, leader, education, career, and training. Here is where I truly started taking my attention seriously to this new form of medicine because I was able to see all the positive and powerful benefits that bio-identical hormone optimization therapy could have on my patients and for myself.
After seeing thousands of patients, reviewing their clinical labs, and listening to their symptoms, I am confident that I can accurately identify and treat virtually any health issue. I am not your standard doctor in a lab coat writing out prescriptions for medications that I have not first researched for FDA approval, safety, had the first-hand experience with, and most of all tested their effectiveness for myself.
Everything my team & I offer is based on protocols that we have personally gotten real results from and which have had impactful changes in our lives. If your doctor does not have the body, the health, or fitness level that you are looking for, then I suggest you reconsider the doctor you are getting advice from. At 50, I feel healthier, more energetic, and mentally sharper than I did in my twenties.
At 22 years of age, I experienced severe erectile dysfunction issues, and I felt like I couldn’t talk to anyone about the problem because it was taboo and abnormal to feel this way. My friends would talk about sex stories, and all I could think to myself was about the little blue and orange pill (Viagra-Cialis) I had to use every time I was going to be sexually active. I created a complete psychosomatic dependence upon using the tablet because I couldn’t get an erection without it. I had a couple of TERRIBLE experiences trying to have sex without it. I was so embarrassed and shocked that I started to think that I was abnormal or that something was wrong with me, which little did I know, it began to have a severely detrimental impact on my self-esteem.
Here is where I began to research like a maniac; how could I fix my ED problem. I tried chiropractic medicine, thinking it could be a pinched nerve that was causing the ED issue. I tried herbs, supplements, diets, thinking it could be a nutrient deficiency. I even tried acupuncture, but nothing was working until I researched the benefits of testosterone therapy. However, all the information I read indicated that this couldn’t be the issue at my age. So I put it off for eight years and kept using the blue and orange pill for erections. At this point, I could not fathom the idea of trying to have sex without the drug nor running the risk without the medication. I just simply gave up on finding the solution to my issue and surrendered myself to the idea that the pill was my ONLY fix.
When I turned 30 years of age, the testosterone therapy thought popped back into my mind, as I had read online that at the age of 30, you could begin treatment with testosterone therapy. So I decided to give the treatment a chance, and from there on, there was no looking back. I say now to people; there was my life before and after testosterone therapy. Within six weeks, I had the sexual desire of a raging bull, and my erections were back without the pill! My confidence was back like a wildfire, and I was elated for months after that. I cannot describe how good it felt to have resolved the issue once and for all. To not have the dependence on something, to be able to be spontaneous with my sex life, and not to have to cringe within my spirit.
This experience led me to think about all the men who were possibly going through the same awful and spiritually deteriorating experience that I went through for eight years, and how I could actually be a testament to the solution to this unnecessary problem. Five years later, here I am (35 years old) with the sex life of an 18-year-old, healthier, stronger, happier, and more fulfilled than you can ever imagine. I also realized that you can be in incredible physical shape and have ED (as in my case) and how afraid men are to talk about this subject. To make a long story short, I opened the Medical Health Institute back in 2015 to help men solve this issue once and for all. I realized that men think about two things the most, sex and happiness, and one without the other. It’s like the wingspan of a bird. You can’t fly straight or at all if you are missing a wing.
I was so moved by this experience that I trademarked “redesign your health with medical science, and make your sex life great again.”Now, my practice offers many more solutions than just fixing a men’s or women’s sexual dysfunction issue. We provide an optimal way of life, a way of opting out of the conventional form of medicine from how you feel at your core to how you look and function. We restore people’s lives to be the best version of themselves and to reconnect with their youthful spirit once again. I opened this practice from a broken, depressed, hopeless, and deteriorating experience. At the core of how this practice came about was first for personal reasons and second as a business. Every patient is family to us, and we take all patients’ problems very seriously and work on how we can reignite that fire in your spirit to be a better impact on our community. We focus on restoring marriages that haven’t had a sex life in years, and we help patients prevent unnecessary divorces because of dead sex lives. So sad to think that this a significant cause of divorces or cheating couples. That is why our entire team, from the doctors to the care coordinators and the administrative department, is on some form of therapy. We believe in what we do, and most importantly, we believe in a solution to your problem.
I have led a high-intensity lifestyle since the age of 12 when I began training in martial arts. I practiced various martial arts through the years and achieved my black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at 50. I started weight training around 15 years of age, mostly to be able to strike harder. Once in the gym, I caught the workout bug and have never stopped lifting in all these years. I did notice something when I hit my 40’s. My workouts weren’t the same, I wasn’t recuperating fast enough, libido wasn’t the same, and I had no desire or energy anymore. So many people get to this point and say, “Oh well, it’s part of life, there’s nothing you can do.” Nothing could be farther from the truth. Hormone replacement therapy has allowed me to continue working out at high levels and keep up with the young bucks in the Jiu-Jitsu Dojo. My energy, sex drive, and recovery levels are through the roof. It would be physically impossible at my age to keep this pace up, but hormone therapy makes it achievable. It’s not just physical, either. When my hormones were not optimized, I felt bouts of depression, and I literally had to drag myself to the gym. I can’t even imagine feeling like that ever again. Sadly, these treatments are not mainstream, and so many men must languish in their later years for lack of knowledge and guidance.
While most people will look at this “before-and-after” pic and notice a nice change, unfortunately, what the picture will not reflect are the remarkable changes that took place INSIDE, which to me are far more valuable than the physical.
Before beginning my hormone-optimization journey, I was experiencing the typical midlife issues that come as the years slowly pile on. The time and energy I was spending on my training was simply not producing the same results. It became harder to stay in shape even though I had kept a clean diet and an athlete’s training regimen for most of my life. More importantly, I began to notice the difference in my energy levels, my drive and motivation, my mental sharpness, and my quickness. I felt something was “off” as day after day, and I pushed against the mental fog.
I knew about the claimed benefits of hormone therapy, but I was always a bit scared of messing around with my hormones, specifically my testosterone, at such an early age. My goal was to keep it “natural” for as long as possible, but it felt as though I had hit a deep rut and an endless plateau. So I began to read and do EXTENSIVE research on the subject of hormones, as anybody who is thinking about starting something this serious should. I began to learn the BIG difference between synthetic hormones and bio-identical hormone optimization therapy. I realized that most of my fears were simply misguided, and many of them were just myths. After my search, and feeling like I was making an informed decision, I mustered up some faith and took the plunge…I can tell you today; I am happy to report that it was the best decision I have made in a VERY long time.
Very quickly, I began to feel a difference in my emotional state, my intellectual life, and my general outlook on life. It was like that fire I once had in my twenties was rekindled, but now wiser and more directed! My mental clarity, my power and passion, my drive, and my healthy ambition simply ignited! It felt as though my mind’s ability to learn and retain information skyrocketed, and of course; as a result, my training intensified, along with my enjoyment of it.
As my results improved, I expanded my research into the world of peptides and other performance enhancers. Under the supervision of Dr. Eberwein and the team at M.H.I., I began to experiment. The result of that is the difference you see in the pictures. But again, while my body significantly changed, which is excellent and I’m delighted about, it simply pales in comparison with what I now feel on the INSIDE, which only I could know about. Feeling like you’re being pulled, rather than being the one doing all the pushing, is a BIG difference and one that it’s hard to put a value on.
To Doctor Eberwein and the MHI team: You guys are geniuses! Thank you for giving me “living health again”!
Excelente servicio! No me esperaba los resultados de mi tratamiento de testosterone. Tengo energía otra vez, mi recuperación de ejercicio increíble, y estoy durmiendo como un bebe! En otras palabras , me siento de 20 años otra vez!
I am an older man (I rather not disclose my age), and I was having problems with my libido. To be honest, the ED problem took me to a dark place in my life. My state of happiness and confidence were affected in all ways and shapes. For me, it was tough to address this situation, and I was embarrassed to discuss it. So, a friend of mine, reluctantly, got in me in touch with this clinic, and I had my 1st appointment with them. That is when the magic happened. They made me realize that what I was going through was more common than what I understood it. They didn’t make a big fuzz about it and focused on the solution rather than my problem. Another big plus for me was that they treated me like a friend, and helped me see that I also had a hormonal issue. At first, I enrolled for Gainswave therapy but then did their hormone replacement therapy, and oh boy!! My energy levels are better than I could imagine capable at my age; the motivation I have has made my focus in the business easy, and my confidence is even better than when I was in my earlier 20's. It is like being in a 20-year-old body, but with a pearl of 60-year-old developed wisdom. I have no words to describe how thankful I am to my friend John for referring me here and for what this clinic has done for me!!
I usually do not write reviews, but I decided to share my experience with everyone. I first thought this was something that was not going to work. I decided to give them a try since I had several health problems that I just could not deal with anymore. The team recommended a blood test, which I then saw for myself that I was deficient in almost everything. I was basically dying alive. This was the moment I started believing because people lie, and they lie a lot, but the numbers on my blood work were not a lie. So, I decided to embark on their complete suggested therapy. At first, I cannot lie, I was overwhelmed; however, it made me feel incredible, I cannot put enough words on how great I feel other than for me to leave a review, it takes mountains! If you're from Miami, this is where you need to go to change every aspect about the quality of your life. From my results, I debate when anyone tells me now, they feel good and are not on therapies like this.
¡¡Excelente servicio, recupere mi vitalidad especialmente a la hora de ejercitarme!! ¡Realice el tratamiento de testosterona y no solo me ayudo a incrementar mi rendimiento y salud sino mi vida intima! Muy contento con los resultados, tenia miedo de invertir en algo como esto pero definitivamente lo haría con los ojos cerrados, ellos realmente les importa tu salud y lo que es mejor para el cuerpo de uno!! Muchas gracias!
This institute straight-up saved my life. I was a mess hormonal wise and was completely nutrient deprived. I was a walking ticking time bomb before I walked into this clinic. I was seriously depressed and had lost my edge for the pleasures of life. I had no energy, no sex drive, mental fatigue, and could not sleep at night. However, thanks to this medical team, the nutritionist, and the personal trainer I was assigned to on my program, my life has made a 180-degree turn for the better. I’ve lost 60 lbs, my sex drive has never been better, I AM SLEEPING, and I totally feel ALIVE again! Thank you , thank you, thank you! I am so thankful for the help provided by you guys. I recommend this clinic to any person who is experienced something like me or wants to maximize their health.
Recomiendo mucho a este instituto! Excelente servicio hacia el cliente. Mi experiencia en general ha sido hasta ahora algo muy diferente a lo que estoy acostumbrado cuando voy a mi doctor bajo mi seguro. Dia y noche en diferencia de servicio y metodos de terapia. Tambien, les he enviado varios amigos los cuales están muy contentos con sus resultados y experieencia. Llevo ya más de cuatro años bajo la supervicion de la clinica y siguen mejorando los servicios que ofrecen. Todos son de verdad apasionados por la medicina natural y les encanta compartirlo con los clientes. Les recomeindo mucho que hablen con Michael, es un genio.
I stared my Gainswave therapy this past month, and the results on my intimate life are just astonishing!! Feeling better than ever, and my confidence is back. I also got hooked up with blood work to check my testosterone, and sure enough, I was low. The price for their testosterone treatment was the best price I was able to shop around and find. They weren't kidding when they said they had the most competitive prices. This clinic is on point and would suggest it to all my friends. The last detail I liked a lot was the staff members. They are always there for you, and they made me feel right at home.
It has been not very easy for me to deal with decreased levels of energy, especially while performing sporting activities, like swimming, tennis, soccer, and my passion, triathlons. Months before I was planning to run a triathlon, I was feeling extremely sluggish, slightly depressed, and overweight. Despite my efforts at the gym and training, I wasn't seeing or feeling the results I used to have. I didn't want to get muscly. I just wanted to lose body fat and increase my recovery time so that I can race. After a few months of being with this clinic, based on the plan they tailored out for my specific needs. I immediately felt my recovery from exercise speed up, it got easier to burn fat, I felt more energetic, and my determination for training was incredibly better. When the big day of my event came, although I didn't get 1st place, I was able to finish the race with ease. The next day after the race, I did not feel fatigued and mildly sore, which was very impressive. Thank you for helping me, and I very well recommend this place.
El Instituto a sido excelente, sinceramente quería expresarles mi agradecimiento a todo lo que me han ayudado hasta ahorita. Han hecho que mi vida mejore de una forma que no creía que ya era posible a mi edad. Gracias nuevamente y les deseo éxito continuo. Ya tienen de mi y un cliente de por vida. Les aseguro recomendarles a unos cuantos amigos que se que pueden utilizar sus servicios.
I Love Medical Health institute! There are always there for me; they've done a great job at staying attentive to me; they make you feel like you matter as if your health conditions are their own! I had their personalized IV push infusions, which is much better than the old drip bags. I am feeling a lot more motivated, with more energy, sleeping like a baby, and my focus has drastically sharpened. The best part about the infusions is that they come to my home to infuse me. I find that so convenient b/c of my work schedule. Love, Love, Love the newsletters they send, so informative! I am thinking of doing their testosterone replacement therapy as well. Thank you again, guys!
