Apologies if this has been asked before. I tried going through the pages and pages of history but didn’t see a thread already made.
It appears to me on the forum that there’s a lot of slander re: TRT when prescribed and monitored by gp’s, endocrinologists and urologists. Reports of bad experiences. I’ve read statements about that they don’t know what they’re doing, or that they know and care less than the doctors at TRT/anti-aging clinics as the former are primarily funded through the healthcare system (insurance or otherwise) and the latter are funded privately by the user. This may be the result of comments of the more active users which is why I thought it was a good idea to get a sense from the entire community as to where you get your TRT prescribed and who monitors your blood work.
I’ve yet to start TRT but will very soon. Thus far my gp referred me to a urologist who in turn referred me to an endocrinologist. I have not ruled out that my endo will do a good job, but I’m surprised by all the negative rhetoric I’ve read about non-TRT doctors. I’m not biased against one route or the other and I’m curious to hear what everyone’s experience and route to finding their current prescribing doctor.
