As a result of his diverse research, he has also become a well known lecturer to healthcare providers in this field which has collectively become known as neuroendocrinology –what Dr. Greene refers to as the hormone-brain connection.

Dr. Greene has also authored several books to provide patients/couples with the knowledge and advice that they need to establish their peak hormone performance as well.
