I’m a 43-year-old male who has been experiencing symptoms potentially related to sub-optimal testosterone levels for a few years. I’m in Tennessee and I’ve consulted a couple clinics.
Dr Nichols, who seems to be popular, requires signing up for a $2000/year treatment package that includes consultations and all lab work but DOES NOT include the cost of medications and says patients usually spend around $120 a month (approx $1,440 for a year) for testosterone. So $2,000 treatment package plus approx $1,440 comes out to $3,440 a year which is nearly $290 a month.
The other clinic I’m talking to offers the following packages:
A. $1200 for 6 months of testosterone ($200 per month)
B. $1800 for 12 months of testosterone ($150 per month)
C. $2200 for 18 months of testosterone ($122 per month)
Those prices are for medication only. Additional consultations and lab work is payed on a per service basis.
Do these prices seem in the normal range to you guys? I feel like, if I could get a doctor to let me use a regular pharmacy instead of the compounding pharmacy his clinic has a relationship with, I could pick up a month’s worth of testosterone (assuming 100mg a week) for less than $120-$290. Am I wrong?
