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 the final price.
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: “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 the 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 mass, if not all of their libido.
Beware of Supplements
If you have ever been to a vitamin store, you have seen the ads with the over-sized bodybuilder promoting a miracle pill that guarantees to increase testosterone levels and lean muscle mass while maximizing sexual performance. The truth is, the only good thing about these supplements is their advertising.
