Testosterone is a male hormone that is vital in growth and development. While reduced production is commonly associated with aging, there are many factors that affect and reduce production at any age.
Symptomatic low testosterone is characterized by reduced libido, fatigue, difficulty losing weight, and slow to no change in lean muscle mass, even with increased exercise.

What to Expect From Your Visit
The entire practice operates under the concierge medicine model, which means our goal is to ensure that your care is convenient and customized to you and your busy lifestyle. Consultation for TT is more effective if it is completed after initial lab work is already preformed. Due to this it is highly suggested that prior to your appointment, new patient paperwork can be emailed to you and completed to reduce the amount of office time, however patients are still welcome to complete the paperwork on site. The provider will then email you a lab slip and once you have the labs completed, a full in office consultation will be scheduled, during which a plan of treatment will be developed. However patients are still welcome to complete the paperwork on site and then return for another office visit once the lab work is completed.
TT consultations allow the medical provider to obtain information regarding your current symptoms, your goals, and any pertinent medical conditions or concerns that might affect your plan of treatment. The full lab panel is also reviewed and addressed during the consultation. Due to the in-depth nature of this consult, they typically last our patients a full hour.
Our goal is to answer any questions regarding the treatment plan and prescribed medication during the consult, however if you leave and questions arise, the medical provider is available via phone, email, or additional office visits to provide continued guidance and support.
