I’m looking to start TRT pretty soon but am looking for good doctors in the DC area. A little background: I’m just over 30 years old, feel like i have a low libido, and I can’t lose fat for the life of me. As soon as I look at a piece of cake, it’s like a gain 2 pounds.
Now, I know if I go to a doctor’s office they’ll do some bloodwork and tell me my test levels are “normal.” I read the complete guide to TRT about how to test for low T levels on this website so I’m looking for a doctor who will do that.
I found two offices that you pay out of pocket mostly:
- Obsidian Men’s Health in McLean, VA
- PRC in DC.
Don’t know too much about the 2nd one. A visit to Obsidian will cost me $570 for one consultation (I’ll need two) and then $250 a month after that.
Here’s the problem, the LAST thing I want is to go to one of these offices, pay them $570 just for them to tell me “meh, your test levels are normal. Thanks for the $570. Good luck!” or prescribe me some gel.
Do I think I have low test? I have no clue. Do I want to SHOW that I have low test so I can get on TRT ? Absolutely. Who can help me out with some of their own experience so I can be put on TRT by a doctor who will monitor all my levels and I can be safe?
I need your guys’ expertise and help on this.
