He did not recommend anyone but did forward his suggestions to my family doctor and suggested a weekly dose of 200 mg along with arimidex at 0.5mg twice a week. He gave me 30 weeks of prescriptions so I haven't contacted my family doc yet. Hoping he will continue at the same dose. Even though Dr Patterson had me on a script of 320mg a week he said non specialists (ie family docs) can't go over the max suggested 200 mg a week.
I went to get my bloodwork done at an endo refered by a GP and they only ran Total Test and estrogen, and estrogen didn't show anything below <100pmol/L with a maximum range of 150pmol/L, so basically they are showing you 1/3 of the info. Then MSP canceled SHBG and Free test because it didn't meet their criteria.
Its frustrating when you just want some info. Does anyone know of a way to get all your labs checked that show all the info?
I realize this is old but $399 for an initial consult is excessive IMO. I think $250/hr is reasonable, anything more than this is gouging the patient. Call me an idealist, but evidence-based TRT (i.e. not an uninformed GP prescribing test E 200 mg q 2 weeks) shouldn't only be available to the wealthy.
