Diagnosing low testosterone can be complex. Ensure you have an expert in your corner.
Diagnosing low testosterone can be complex, and a simple reading of testosterone levels in your general practitioners office is only a small part of the story. Finding a physician that knows how to properly diagnose and manage low testosterone safely and effectively is paramount. Many men suffer for years because their general doctors dismiss the symptoms as simply something that happens as you age. Our board-certified urologists are fellowship-trained in the diagnosis and management of Low T. We specialize in treating men with Low T and monitor patients closely for any possible side effects while working to maximize the benefits you see from the therapy.
Personalized for You
To be successful, testosterone therapy must be personalized to your specific situation. Do you want to have children in the future? Have you had prostate cancer? Are you on other steroidal medication? These are just a few examples of personal considerations that must be taken into consideration when devising a treatment plan. Your lifestyle and future goals may affect how we treat your Low T today.
Our team takes the time to get to know each patient, along with their symptoms, desires, and of course, lab results. But it’s that last one that tricks many physicians into thinking their patients are fine. “Normal” testosterone can vary greatly from person to person, and while lab test can be instructive, the symptoms reported by the patient are just as important to making the diagnosis and devising the appropriate treatment plan.
This is what makes finding the right doctor so imperative. Low T is not something that can be or should be treated at a drive-in center, or “hormone specialists” shop. You must be seen by a urologist — with a specialty in sexual medicine — that will take the time to get to the root cause of your testosterone deficiency while also coming up with a plan that works with your lifestyle and plans for the future.
Low T After Steroid Use
Anabolic steroid use is prevalent in the United States. Steroids can cause a number of problems such as low testosterone, and male infertility. It can also result in abnormal hormonal levels, liver dysfunction, high cholesterol and a number of other problems.
We specialize in the treatment of low testosterone or infertility due to anabolic steroid use. We also effectively treat men that have been on anabolic steroids and have residual affects of low libido, fatigue and sexual difficulties. We also have a program that has helped many men stop taking steroids and put them on programs that safely and effectively treat the symptoms they’ve been experiencing.
