Trying to help my dad
So I brought up TRT to my father, who is turning 50 this year. He's been experiencing low T symptoms, so I told him to get bloods run at his next physical. His test was around the low 200 range, so his doctor put him on testim 1%.
I am familiar with test cycles (and am running prop soon) using SERMS, HCG, etc but know little about TRT procedure. I assumed he'd still be on hcg to prevent total shutdown. Anyways his doctor seems relatively clueless as to TRT procedure (understandable for a primary).
So how do help him find an anti aging/trt clinic or tell him to get a endocrinology appointment? And how do I find legit clinics?
He'd prefer injections than rubbing cream on every morning.
Thanks for any help.

Noob looking for alot of guidance
I've got a hold of some omnadren 250(is sustanon better?) and I'm pretty much clueless about steroids. All i know about it is that it easily aromatizes and it holds alot of water

He has high BP and is in an ACE inhibitor and calcium channel med for it. It's genetic though, not lifestyle issues as I have it as well.
He lives in the Boston area as well if you are familiar with any clinics there.

I would check out an endo just to get the proper testing done. You can also call local compounding pharmacy for a list of Dr who use.them. you can also get blood testing from lef.org or other one line testing sites for you own information.

When it comes to TRT, doctors are all over the place. A person like your dad can go to 10 different doctors and get 12 different treatments. One may give him 100mgs of test every three weeks while another may give him 200mgs every week.
This is what I do, if it's any help. I get my own blood work done through LabCorp every three months. It costs about $300 for a full anti aging panel. I share that with my doctor, but it's my test. I have a prescription through him for test-e, 200mgs a week. Through other sources I get Aromasin, HCG and other gear, like Vit B-12 all the way to Tren. If I decide to blast, I do so and enjoy the ride, watching my sides. I do a lot of research into prostrate health, heart disease, etc., so I can monitor my health at home. I have a BP machine that I use a couple of times a day.
I discuss things with my doctor, but do not totally rely on him. To me, he's a source of prescription grade test and a source for Lisinopril. I value his opinion, but I treat him like an attorney; he's there to advise me, not make decisions for me.

Thanks for the replies. The dr said he can get off whenever he wants and he'll just feel lethargic for a few weeks. I didn't like that. If he's on TRT he's going to shutdown, even with hcg. I know it's possible to jumpstart with hcg and clomid, but shutdown can be irreversible in some cases. I just found that to be unprofessional and dangerous
