This is in reference to my other post Testim, as I suspect my bro's doc does not know what he is doing and nobody seems to be able to confirm this. My brother In Law found lumps in his breast, went to a doctor they refurred him to a GENERAL PRACTITIONER. He found out that his T is 231. His main concern is fertility as he wants kids soon.
1.) His doc prescribed him TRT(Testim) with no HCG and his main priority is FERTILITY.
2.) He has lumps in the nipples (and a gynocomastia looking chest with no steroid history) and the doctor did not suggest using a AI along with the Testim (WTF why does he have no concern for Estrogen conversion?) Let alone consider refuring him to an Endo.
3.) No FSH and LU tests were done in his bloodwork.
4.) The doctor did not even do a sperm count test and wants to do it after TRT for 6 months (His nuts will be shut down by then!!!).
5.) His doctor was saying something about how Testim is a "pure form" of Test identical to humans, saying something about cloning being used and because of this it promotes testicular function (spermatogenisis). Correct me if I'm wrong but any test(test cypionate, ethanate, propionate) while having different esters they are atomicly and molelcularly
equivalent to the natural Test running through my veins. Exogenous Test is exogenous test and the body will figure that out. HCG is the only way to get your nuts "up and running".
The above tells me his doc is a moron. If anyone disagrees with me given the above information please do explain as all the doctors actions are contradictory.
1.) What doctor (specialist) should he see?
2.) He lives in South Florida so if anyone who knows a doc WHO KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING, please let me know so he can avoid the cycle of bad advice from many doctors like I'm sure many of you guys have been through.

This is going to sound negative and cynical but my experiences have led me to believe that 75% of DRs are either incompetent or corrupt, at least in the areas of TRT.
You have to be very quick to fire the DRs like this one who seems to be getting paid by whomever makes Testim.
I saw a DR once who I begged to give me the generic form of testosterone as I did not have insurance. He simply refused. Testim would cost $500 a month and I now pay $47 a month for th same dose. I really think whoever makes Testim has a very aggressive manipulation, I mean marketing, plan in place.
Get rid of this guy yesterday, there must be lot of DOs and life extension DRs in South FLA.

Your bro could always fly to see Crisler or Shippen. I flew from South Carolina to see Crisler and now I don't have to worry about incompetent local docs making me worse.
