Clinics that Overcharge
If you were to call one of these hormone clinics, they would be extremely vague about their pricing. They will do everything within their power to get you in the front door without disclosing what the end pricing will be.
Example: After treatment is started, a patient would pay anywhere from $1500 to $6000 upfront for their prescription without ever having follow-up physicals or labs. The biggest problem with this scenario is that no one can know if the medication is benefiting the patient without the proper follow up labs and physicals.

Clinics that Claim to Have an Affordable Price
The majority of these claims are just what they are, claims. You will see advertisements for $149, $150, and even $195 while doing your research. However, the truth is that you will find a vast majority of these types of clinics just prescribing the minimum amount of medication or do not prescribe the proper medication at all.
Example: After calling and asking these clinics about what is included in the price of treatment, many of the responses would be “it would depend on what the doctor recommends.” We have seen that some of these clinics only prescribe 1/3 of a cc of testosterone per week or every other week without the critical supporting medications. When you ask these clinics if they prescribe other medications with the hormone therapy, the answer is usually “it depends on whether the doctor recommends it.”
These medications are essential to the therapy. Without the use of other medications it is almost a sure guarantee, while on testosterone treatment, that your body will stop producing its own natural testosterone, causing the LH to shut down. It is also a fact that the testicles will begin to shrink if proper medication is not taken. If an estrogen blocker is not taken, your estrogen levels will begin to rise. The problem with high estrogen in men is the ultimate loss of most, if not all of their libido.
