Frequently Asked Questions​

What are “normal” levels of testosterone

Men and women have variable levels of testosterone which decline as they age, often dropping by over 50% as people age beyond their 40’s. Some doctors will tell their patients that these lower levels are “normal” for their age. Well, feeling “normal for age 40 or 50 plus” isn’t necessarily what people want to accept due a wide range of symptoms associated with these lower levels of testosterone. The reality is that it’s about how you feel and the symptoms that you’re experiencing as you age. We don’t treat lab tests, we treat the patient. It is our goal to optimize your testosterone levels to a medically acceptable range which restores your health and vitality back to your peak years while eliminating the symptoms related to low testosterone levels.

What are the risks associated with testosterone therapy?

As with any medication or medical procedures, there are always risks. Our testosterone specialist physicians take great care to medically manage and monitor each patient to ensure that all hormonal levels are maintained in proper balance to ensure optimum health and minimize any potential risks.

What are the potential side effects of testosterone therapy?

When testosterone therapy is medically managed and monitored by a testosterone specialist physician, you should not experience side effects.
