About me


Physician, Media Personality, Best Selling Author, and Serial Entrepreneur

Steven F. Hotze, M.D.

Steven F. Hotze, M.D., is the founder and CEO of the Hotze Health & Wellness Center, Hotze Vitamins, Hotze Pharmacy, and Hotze Elite Physicians. Dr. Hotze received his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. His goal is to change the way women and men are treated in midlife through the use of bioidentical hormone therapy.

His 8-Point Treatment Regimen has helped thousands of individuals get on a path of health and wellness and enjoy
a better quality of life in an environment of extraordinary hospitality and guest service.


Dr. Hotze is the best-selling author of Hormones, Health, and Happiness , Hypothyroidism, Health & Happiness, and Do A 180: Join the Wellness Revolution. In Hormones, Health, and Happiness, he describes his journey from using pharmaceutical drugs to actively listening to his patients and treating the root cause of their symptoms through natural approaches. “For an acute illness, such as strep throat or a sinus infection, the drug approach may be appropriate. However, few patients with chronic ailments ever really get well by taking drugs. How can they?

Chronic illness and disease are not caused by deficiencies of prescription drugs.” In his book, Hypothyroidism, Health & Happiness, Dr. Hotze reveals how commonly hypothyroidism is overlooked, misdiagnosed, and mistreated in women and men, and gives readers just the information they need to prepare themselves to obtain help. In his latest book, “Do A 180: Join the Wellness Revolution,” Dr. Hotze challenges readers to make a paradigm shift in their beliefs about medicine and health.

Suzanne Somers dedicated an entire chapter to Dr. Hotze in her New York Times best seller, Breakthrough. “This Texan doctor is going to steal your heart,” writes Somers. “He has so much energy he can’t wait to get to his office each day. He has built up a practice that is the envy of doctors everywhere.”

Former Southwest Airlines executive, author, and keynote speaker, Lorraine Grubbs also dedicated a chapter to Dr. Hotze in her inspiring book, How to Create a Happy Workplace. In it, Lorraine describes how Dr. Hotze discovered the secret to the utmost competitive advantage in the industry – loyal employees and customers.

Dr. Hotze hosted “Health & Wellness Solutions” radio show on KSEV 700 AM and “Dr. Hotze’s Wellness Revolution” radio show on KPRC AM 950 and iHeart radio. He currently hosts “Dr. Hotze’s Wellness Revolution,” a national video podcast, available on all major podcasting and social media platforms.

Maintaining Good Health… Naturally

Dr. Hotze’s Expertise

Dr. Hotze and his team at the Hotze Health & Wellness Center help people restore and maintain good health through a variety of natural approaches utilizing bioidentical hormones, nutrition, vitamin and mineral supplementation, and lifestyle changes. Dr. Hotze has helped tens of thousands of people suffering from hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, allergies, Candida (yeast overgrowth), and hormonal imbalances.

Others are struggling with depression, fibromyalgia, and weight gain or inability to lose weight. They’ve tried other approaches in the past, including pharmaceutical drugs, that were unsuccessful, and came to the Center to try a natural approach.

By listening closely to their symptoms and tailoring a treatment plan to every individual, Dr. Hotze helps them get onto a path 
of wellness, naturally. Dr. Hotze is one of the leaders in the nation in the use of bioidentical hormones and has written extensively about how they help restore health and vitality, 
and are superior to the synthetic counterfeit hormones used 
in conventional medicine.

In 2016, Dr. Hotze established Hotze Elite Physicians™ to train physicians in his established medical protocols and business practices, to grant more patients access to natural approaches
to health.
