Typical Treatment Plan

Initial Appointment

4He conducts a thorough health evaluation and discusses your health history, current symptoms and concerns. If after this evaluation, Dr. Getz believes you may have low testosterone, he will write an order for blood tests. He may also discuss lifestyle changes including diet and exercise options that can naturally affect testosterone and quality of life. This appointment typically lasts an hour.

 

Follow-up Appointment:

Dr. Getz reviews the results of your blood tests, and depending on your results, he may write a prescription for testosterone replacement therapy. Generally occurs within 1-2 weeks after initial appointment. Expect this phone appointment to take 30 minutes.

Injection training:

This appointment is “as needed” for those patients who have been prescribed testosterone as how to safely administer the drug in their own home.

5Second Follow-up Appointment:

Dr. Getz reviews how the therapy is working, both lifestyle and prescriptions, and if any adjustments need to be made. Generally occurs 4-6 weeks after first follow-up appointment. Expect this appointment to take 30 minutes.

Third Follow-up Appointment:

This appointment is “as needed” depending on whether adjustments were made in the previous appointment. Generally occurs 4-6 weeks after second follow-up appointment, again, only on an “as needed” basis. Expect this phone appointment to take 15-20 minutes.

These appointments occur once a successful therapy plan is in place. These are routine evaluations of health and symptoms. Blood tests are required at least annually, occasionally semi-annually, at Dr. Getz’s discretion. Expect these appointments to take 30 minutes.
