I wanted to say again how grateful I am for your mentorship - it’s the best education I’ve experienced as a dermatologist. I listen to your videos everyday - I’ve listened to each video multiple times and have notebooks filled with notes and have been implementing all the knowledge into my daily practice. Thank you so much for putting such a comprehensive and informative course together. It has been life changing.

- Valerie Gershenhorn, DO, Dermatologist

Such a great course- helped fill in gaps in my knowledge and provided priceless pearls, tools, and protocols to help my patients!

- Nadia Kravchuk, NP

I highly recommend this course if you are a practitioner interested in getting to the root cause of dermatological conditions. Dr. Julie is a wonderful clinician and teacher. If you have ever listened to a podcast with her as a guest, I am sure you have learned something valuable. But this course really takes it to the next level. The pathophysiology explanations are informative. The techniques for analyzing various labs are efficient and clear. The case examples with pictures are abundant and the oral and topical protocols are thorough. I have completed many trainings over the years and this has been one of my favorites. I can say that I feel very confident in my ability to effectively treat chronic skin conditions using a root cause approach.

- Marley Braun, RD

Overall the course was great. I learned a lot and I'm excited to start treating patients and seeing improvement without the use of topical steroids and biologics!!

I have been a practicing dermatologist for over 15 years. Dr. Greenberg gave me the tools I required to take a more functional medicine approach to some chronic skin conditions. I highly recommend this course!

- Nicole Rocca, MD, Dermatologist

Dr. Julie Greenberg is a pioneer and leader in the world of functional dermatology. The information in this course is extremely valuable. Dr. Greenberg does an exceptional job explaining pathophysiology of skin disease, reasoning for each test she orders, and intention behind every treatment plan she prescribes. This course provides education and information providers can use to identify and treat the root cause of common skin diseases. She outlines specific products and protocols she uses to treat abnormal findings in the work up she orders. I now feel capable to make a real difference in the lives of my patients with chronic skin disease. I am so thankful I took this course! Now that I have this knowledge I cannot imagine my functional dermatology practice without it. 10/10 recommend!

This been an AMAZING learning experience and I am so extremely grateful for the opportunity to have participated in this course. It filled so many gaps I had in my functioning medical training and you have essentially handed me all the clinical tools I need to be successful in the area of functional dermatology. I'm so excited for the future of my practice.

- Annette Harris, NP

Everything was excellent. The enthusiasm in which Dr. Greenberg teaches about dermatologic conditions is contagious! The conditions are thoroughly explained to understand the reasoning of treatments. The best part is that we went through several cases with lab interpretation, and specific protocols and dosing. I would highly recommend this course to other practitioners interested in looking at chronic dermatologic conditions in a holistic way.

- Karen Nunez Schmidt, ND

I love this course so much. It's the first time in a while I've really felt inspired again.

- Jennifer Clemente, CNS

Dr. Greenberg is a fantastic teacher and does a great job educating on the "why" behind her treatment plans. After completing the course, I feel 100 percent confident in my ability to start treating dermatological conditions with Dr. Greenberg's approach. My only complaint is that the course went by too quickly! I hope to be able to learn more from Dr. Greenberg in the future.

- Camille Fish, Acupuncturist
