Looking for a T-man Doctor

I am trying to find a Doctor, in the Los Angeles area that has experience working with athletes and or BBs. If you know a great Doc or are one would you reply. I just cant seem to get my self back to normal.

judd,
I’m not in your area so, can’t recommend a particular physician but, can tell you how I found mine. First off, it depends what type of doctor you’re looking for. Are you looking for a doctor experienced with athletes and body builders more from a sports medicine or hormonal/nutritional aspect? My interest was the latter and I found someone from the Life Extension Foundation’s Directory of Innovative Doctors. (http://www.lef.org/doctors/directoryofdoctors01.html)
Please note that these are doctors who have expressed an interest in this field and are not connected with or endorsed by LEF. As a matter of fact I eliminated my first choice (a doctor I had heard about even before checking out the listing) when an internet search revealed sanctions against him by New York Sate. Wow, was I surprised.
I found someone else from the list (a bit farther from me) and have been going to her for the past few years.
Generally doctors who are life- extension/anti-aging/nutritionally oriented will be more open to hormonal optimization whether it be via conventional HRT or natural methods.
Hope this is of some help to you.
