I created Testosteronology®, a sub-specialty of Internal Medicine after many years of caring for thousands of men on testosterone and anabolic steroids. No other medical specialty offers comprehensive and personalized medical services for men on androgens; Testosteronology is distinct from Endocrinology and Urology. Testosteronology is more specific than Endocrinology, which deals with all hormones in men and women. And it is different from Urology, a surgical specialty that does not focus on the common medical aspects of how androgens effect men. These aspects include cardiovascular complications, adverse effects on red blood cell production (polycythemia), psychological side affects of androgens, and other internal medicine related conditions. Testosteronology offers men from all over the world a safe place where they are respected, listened to, and protected by the most cutting edge, progressive men’s heath physicians on earth.

Dr. O'Connor is the coolest, kindest and most caring Doctor I have ever met and his staff Wendy and Kim are amazing. You immediately feel like you are part of a family. The only regret I have is that I didn't find Dr. O'Connor sooner.
