Why Choose PracticalCME?

Excellence in CME Training Since 2008

J.J., MD in CaliforniaWeight Loss Training

Incorporating the weight loss principles I learned from the "Evidence-Based Weight Loss" Course into my practice has helped my family and my patients lose a record amount of weight and improve their wellness like never before. It was also very profitable for me, netting me over $48,000 in profits in the first year from product sales alone.

M.D. from IllinoisWellness Triple Classes

Your wellness courses have helped establish my wellness-oriented practice. I am no longer taking any new Medicare or Medicaid and am averaging 3 new private insurance/cash patients a day!

Of all the CME courses I have taken in an effort to expand my medical practice, I can say without hesitation that PracticalCME's lectures have been the most well-presented, memorable, and enjoyable.

Eric B, MDBHRT online course

The BHRT course is excellent, even if a bit overwhelming. There's SO much information to take in that I watched many slides two-three times, and took copious notes. But it's all good information, and Dr. Zengo explains everthing very clearly, citing the available evidence throughout. Best of all, Dr. Zengo stands by his promise to help you interpret data from patients you test as you get started. I highly recommend his online BHRT course to anyone interested in helping their patients feel "balanced" again.

Susanti Chowdhury, MDBio-Identical Hormones

Yours was the 4th different lecture on Bio-Identical Hormones that I have attended. It was by far the most comprehensive and passionate presentation on the subject.

Joe Johnson, MDCME

I definitely have benefited greatly from your training. I was very skeptical about adding Weight Loss to my practice. Your courses made it very easy to get trained and your teaching was very efficient and effective. The courses and the office forms gave me all the materials and confidence I needed to get started immediately.

Shortly thereafter, I began offering Rapid Weight Loss in my practice and it quickly became our most successful new service in our practice in just the first 12 months. All of this with very little investment in regards to training and supplies needed to get started. We earned back the costs of our training in just a matter of days.

The instructors have been more than helpful on numerous occasions when I have had questions…always responding to emails very quickly with just the right information. You keep up to date with all of the latest research and journals and the information presented in your training programs reflect this. Of all the CME courses I have ever had, yours have been the most exciting and beneficial to my practice. Thanks for all of your help over the past 5 years.

Ronald Lieberman, DOGreat CME

Thanks PracticalCME. When I first ordered the video weight loss course I was skeptical about the outcome and how this will benefit my practice. It was great. It was so convincing that I took the live course. I came back and started doing right away what I learned. The course had so much information that time to time I got confused.

I got great follow up and support after the course. The teacher (Dr. Zengo) always answered my email questions in a few hours. This was the beauty of the course (100 % follow up and support). I really felt ashamed at the very beginning of the many times I bothered him with questions. He always supportive and accurate. I do not remember any other CME like that. Dr. Zengo is an excellent advisor and teacher, he always answered my questions in less than 4-6 hours and his advice is priceless . The money that I invested in this training has been recovered in less than 1 month. I also cut my hours at the hospital, enjoying medicine and family again.

J. JohnsonBHRT course

The Hormone Balancing Course has been practice changing. We now have about 25% of my practice involved with hormone, adrenal support, and GI health. This is gratifying for both me and my patients, because I can now offer options that I didn't have before for menopause, fatigue, and IBS symptoms. It has also been very helpful financially, because I make profits not only on visits, but also on labs and supplements. I did not even need to advertise, because these issues are so common and patients want good answers. In summary, the courses offered by PracticalCME have helped me become more profitable and bring vitality and fun back into my practice. I would highly recommend all of these courses to anyone.
