I spoke to someone at Defy who put opening costs at around a little under $700 and broke it down to $1500-1800 annually. I won’t post the whole email I have but this is these are some of the statements made.
“With the labs, we have an initial panel of 11 tests that we need on file prior to scheduling your consultation, we have discounted pricing set up with Labcorp, so that panel is $279.”
“Regarding the physical, I will send you a blank physical form you may have completed by your PCP”
Out of pocket for me will be $170
“The initial consultation is $250 and would be scheduled for one hour with one of our physicians”
“Total annual costs(on average, as every patient is going to differ) are around $1500-$1800(this estimate includes medications, follow up labs and consults), so you can divide that by 12, which comes to about $125-$150 per month on average. This would be for Labs, consults and medications.”
Not bad at all gentlemen. Compared to other costs I’ve seen for the level of care they offer, it is an unbelievably inexpensive and great service for the money. I’ve heard many more positive things than negative ones. I really want to pursue their services if the one I’m looking at doesn’t pan out. It will be at least 6 months before it is an option for me though.
My only concern with Royal Medical is that they will compound an AI into their Testosterone…not good…I’ll know more on Wednesday or Thursday.
