Q. Does my insurance cover treatment?
A. No. We do not accept insurance and will not be filing any claims on your behalf for your exam or your treatment program. Lab work, however, is most often covered by insurance.
Q. How much will this cost me?
A. Your initial consultation and physical exam will be approximately 1 hour long and is billed at a flat rate.
After your initial exam and lab work, the cost will be determined by whichever path of treatment you qualify for and varies from patient to patient.
We do not participate in any insurance and will not be filing claims on your behalf. Many of our patients, however, do use their Flexible Spending (FSA) accounts.
Laboratory testing is most often covered by insurance and will vary depending on the location and physician you are seeing.
Q. How quickly will I see results?
A. Results vary, but noticeable results are most often seen between 2-5 weeks after beginning therapy. It takes about 2 weeks for the medications to have a chance to get into your system and make any sort of noticeable difference.
Q. Is this an ongoing therapy?
A. Hormone Replacement and Testosterone Replacement Therapy is tailored to each patients individual needs and deficiencies. Perpetual therapy is rare but necessary in some instances. Most therapies will be administered in cycles, giving your body time to restart it’s natural production of hormones in between each cycle.
Q. Do you offer creams or gels?
A. We believe that the injectable form of most medications that we prescribe is the most effective form. However, we realize that some patients have an aversion to this type of administration, and some patients simply do not need a very strong dose. In these cases, we will prescribe creams or gels as necessary.
