TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

Maximize your quality of life while protecting your health.

I have been carefully managing thousands of men on Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) since 2005. As a private physician, I have time to really get to know you and listen to every detail. I’ll closely monitor your testosterone regimen, maximizing your quality of life, while protecting your health.

Think you might be a candidate for TRT?


I am an expert in diagnosing men who have low testosterone secondary to organic causes like obesity, obstructive sleep apnea-OSA, pre-diabetes/diabetes, diseases of the liver, kidney, and heart/lungs. Men who are being treated chronically with opioid pain medications, like hydrocodone and oxycodone and or corticosteroids like prednisone may have low testosterone. In addition, there are now tens of thousands of men that are using or who have used anabolic steroids and may be suffering with low testosterone secondary to a condition known as Anabolic Steroid Induced Hypogonadism – ASIH.

Are you currently on a TRT regimen and concerned?

 

Many fine physicians do not feel comfortable prescribing and managing men on testosterone. My private medical practice is the right place for you. Most of my new patients are men already on TRT that are unsatisfied with their current medical supervision. TRT needs to be managed by an expert physician only.

 

Why should you consider Testosterone Replacement Therapy?

 
Most men who have been diagnosed with hypogonadism and are on an appropriate regimen, prescribed and monitored by an expert physician, will experience marked improvements in mood, cognition, energy and sex drive.

 

Are there risks with TRT? 


There may be potential cardiovascular dangers associated with TRT (see my video on TRT and heart disease with Cardiologist Dr. Brett Nowlan below), in addition to complications associated with hair loss, mood instability, acne, gynecomastia-enlargement of breast tissue, prostate disease(s) (video below), increased viscosity of blood, blood clots, elevations of blood pressure, ankle edema and other serious medical issues.  Further, many physicians simply prescribe gels and creams as treatment, underestimating the potential for spreading testosterone to partners and children. Testosterone is a controlled drug and studies have shown that it can be abused and lead to dependency.  Always discuss possible risks with an expert physician before beginning any treatment.  

What makes my private practice different? 


Before starting any treatment, I will evaluate your medical history and perform a physical exam that focuses on your symptoms. This includes:

 

  • Laboratory studies to measure your testosterone levels. I will also select specific studies to assess your cardiovascular health, prostate health and other, "reversible" conditions that may have led to a low testosterone state. 

  • Medical conditions that could complicate a testosterone regimen, like diagnosed or poorly treated diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, blood (hematological) disorders , including a personal or family history of deep venous thrombosis DVT or pulmonary embolism PE, obstructive sleep apnea, psychiatric issues like depression and anxiety in addition to prostate disease will be reviewed in detail during my intensive evaluation. 

 

We will discuss the risks and benefits of TRT before beginning any treatment. Not all men with low or low normal testosterone require treatment and I will discuss this very important aspect of care with you in detail. This is one of the most important aspects of my medical practice that sets me apart from other experts in testosterone replacement therapy.  You will have open access to me, at any time, with personalized treatment that you would not get from a group of health care providers. After beginning TRT, most of my patients receive laboratory testing every four to six months, others more frequently if we are monitoring a medical issue closely. The frequency, details of laboratory testing and clinical care is based on Evidence-Based-Medical studies, but most importantly, applied on a man-per-man basis. Since 2005, this is how I've been managing men on testosterone. 

 

What testosterone regimen is right for me? 


One thing I have learned after taking care of nearly one thousand men on testosterone is that each man requires a personal touch when it comes to prescribing testosterone. There are many forms of delivery, from gels to injections. I will choose the right regimen so you can enjoy the best quality of life while being sure TRT is safe for both you and your family. I personalize every man's testosterone program and will Rx the appropriate method of delivery for you. Most men do well on small intramuscular injections and enjoy balanced androgen levels this way. In other men, bi-monthly injections by me in the office or daily gels are the right choice. It’s all between you and me and I'm the expert that will guide you.
