+ Is Hormone Replacement Therapy safe?

Hormone Replacement Therapy (low-T treatment) is safe and can be very effective in restoring vitality and improving overall wellbeing. In addition, it has been found that lower levels of testosterone are associated with an increased risk of myocardial infarctions and stroke, as well as a risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

+ Am I a good candidate for Testosterone Therapy?

Low testosterone levels can cause hormonal changes that come with uncomfortable symptoms, and these levels can decrease gradually as a man ages. We have created this QUIZ to help you determine if you might be suffering from Low T and if Hormone Replacement Therapy might be a good option for you.

Most men seem to relate testosterone to sexual drive or libido. Though it is true that libido is directly associated to testosterone, testosterone also affects musculoskeletal, immune and brain function, and metabolism.

+ How will you determine my hormone replacement therapy medication dosage?

We recognize that each patient’s body and situation is unique, and so we’ll prescribe a customized testosterone therapy treatment plan for you. The determination of dosage comes from the testosterone levels present in your body. After the tests are taken to see your current levels, Dr. Scott will determine how much you need to receive during your treatment dosage.
