Testosterone is the primary sex and anabolic hormone in the male body. It helps regulate organs like the testicles and prostate, promotes muscle/bone mass, regulates fat distribution, regulates sex drive and aids in the production of red blood cells. Testosterone levels vary according to body type, build, blood levels, diet and other pre-existing medical conditions. A "normal range" is from 300 to 1,000 ng/DL and can easily be checked with a simple blood test. A gradual drop in testosterone is a normal part of aging for men, sometimes referred to as "andropause" or "male menopause."
Hormone levels begin decreasing as early as age 30 and can cause:
- Low sex drive
- Weight gain
- Memory loss
- Loss of muscle tone
- Low Motivation
- Loss of Morning Erections
Living with low testosterone can eventually be problematic for a man’s health. Adequately treating low testosterone has been shown to make your body more sensitive to insulin, improve musculoskeletal composition, enhance brain function and cognition, reduce inflammation and in turn lower the risk of heart disease. There are many options for treatment/replacement options including injections, creams.
How to get started
Blood work is usually obtained checking your levels of total testosterone, free testosterone, sex hormone binding globulin, a complete blood count, a comprehensive metabolic panel (liver, kidneys, electrolytes), thyroid, PSA, HgbA1C. Once your blood work is resulted we review the results and discuss treatment options that are best for you. If you have health insurance it usually covers the cost of your blood work, but there may be some cost associated with blood work depending on your insurance.
The initial consultation fee is $250, with a monthly fee of $99.
I do not accept insurance for testosterone replacement, but a Health Savings Account (HSA)/ Flexible Spending Account (FSA) are accepted
*the monthly subscription gets you unlimited access to your medical professional and no future appointment fees or charges*

Peptides are short chains of ammino acids and each peptide has their own sequence of ammino acids. Peptides can perform interactions with proteins and other macromolecules. They are responsible for several important functions in human cells, such as cell signaling, and act as immune modulators. When used in the right context peptides can promote cellular repair (healing tissues), and increase cellular signaling which can increase the release and secretion of your natural hormones. Most peptides come in multiple forms including pills/capsules, creams or injections. Below is a list of some of the more popular peptides offered. Ask about pricing of peptides, as pricing may vary.
BPC 157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) that is discovered in and isolated from the human gastric juice. Experimentally it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments. Also, BPC 157 seems to protect organs and to prevent ulcers of the stomach. This peptide is also shown to decrease pain in damaged areas. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide. It can also help aid skin burns to heal at a faster rate and increase blood flow to damaged tissues.
• Tendon healing.
• Decrease pain.
• Increase collagen synthesis.
• Quicker recovery times post-injury.
• Wound and bone healing.
• Decrease in inflammation.
• Intestinal issues.
• Protects the heart.
• Reverse opioid tolerance
• Enhance GABA neurotransmission
CJC 1295 is a synthetically produced peptide that can increase your plasma growth hormone levels. Initially, CJC 1295 was developed to treat diseases and medical conditions for patients who had muscle disorders, diseases, and burn victims. CJC 1295 has drawn many individuals like athletes from around the globe for its incredible benefits and minimal side effects to enhance their performance on the field and in the gym. The primary purpose of CJC-1295 is to boost protein synthesis levels and help fuel the growth of muscle tissues in the body. Many benefits will be derived by users who are incorporating CJC-1295 to their regimen; among these are:
• Decrease body fat.
• Improve sleep quality.
• Increase cognitive function.
• Quicker recovery times post-injury.
• Increased muscle mass.
• Increase in strength.
It is used alongside Ipamorelin because of the synergistic effects and increased GH release levels. An increase in growth hormone levels. These are naturally release by the pituitary glands, and as your body stops producing the hormone as you age, a supplement, such as Ipamorelin, can naturally help increase those dissipated levels. If using it with CJC 1295, you can experience a correlation in increased muscle mass levels. With more extended-release periods, more significant results are achievable. So, if you want to gain more muscle mass, or if you just want to increase levels of lean muscle mass, you are going to realize these possibilities when you incorporate the use of Ipamorelin into your daily regimen. Less downtime. You will recover faster, your body will recuperate more quickly, and you are back on your feet faster. So, you won’t experience as much downtime after a tough workout, letting you get back to your regimen faster. Faster weight loss is achieved. Increase in lean muscle mass, increase in metabolic rate and increase growth hormones, all work together to help you burn more calories, and conversely lose more weight in less time. Your skin, nails, and hair will look better. It can work to help fight the signs of aging, and you are going to look and feel younger. A younger, more jovial appearance is almost instantly realized among users who incorporate Ipamorelin to their workout and diet regimen.
TB-500 is a synthetic fraction of the protein thymosin beta-4. The main purpose of this peptide is to promote healing. The healing effects of TB-500 have been observed in tendons, ligaments, muscles, skin, heart, and eyes. T• Up-regulates Actin and forms a ternary complex with actin and profilin.
• Increased cells in healing.
• Improves cell migration to the cite of the injury
• Soft tissue repair - tendon, ligament, muscle sports, and athletic injuries.
• Reduces scar tissue.
• Significant repair and regenerative properties.
• Enlarged muscle growth, muscle tone, and muscular stamina.
4. MK677 Ibutamoren
MK-677 is a hormone secretion compound that stimulates the pituitary gland to increase the production of human growth hormone. Ibutamoren is a long-acting, orally-active, selective, and non-peptide agonist of the ghrelin receptor and a growth hormone secretagogue, imitating the growth hormone (GH)-stimulating action of the endogenous hormone ghrelin.
• Increase IGF-1 Levels in as little as two weeks.
• longer REM sleep and shorter sleep latency.
• Increase fat-free muscle mass.
• Decrease body fat percentage.
• Stronger bones.
• Improved endurance.
• Increase nitrogen levels in the body.
• Reversal of nitrogen wasting.
