If the high cost of medication wasn’t bad enough, blood work and doctor’s visits is where it really starts to pain the wallet. Most offices offer some type of cash discount and in my case it was $65 per visit. You’ll need to obtain at least one blood test for low Testosterone which can set you back roughly $ per test. At some point you’ll need to test your estrogen levels which generally runs $280 + per test. Keep in mind most doctors will want these tests done bi-weekly/monthly when you first start and every 6 months after your T levels have stabilized. (I can’t help but laugh at this statement actually, I’m not sure it ever fully stabilizes)
MY HUSBAND IS ALREADY TAKING A TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT COMPOUNDED JUST FOR HIM. BECAUSE HIS TESTOSTERONE WAS IN THE BASEMENT OF THE CHART. HIS RX IS 20% TWO TIMES A DAY THRU A
INTEGRATIVE HEALTH DOCTOR. THE REPLACEMENT THERAPY IS NOT HELPING HIS ED PROBLEM. CAN HE TAKE THIS ALSO? I DON’T WANT TO CAUSE ANY HEALTH ISSUES WITH OVER LOADING HIS SYSTEM. HIS ED WAS NOT HELPED BY VIAGRA, CIALIS, OR LEVITRA, BUT WE FOUND GNC HAD A PRODUCT THAT WORKED GREAT. AND GUESS WHAT… IT WAS PULLED FROM THE SHELF FOR SEVERAL MONTHS, AND THE NEW VERISON SUCKS! JUST WISH I COULD FIND OUT WHAT THE SECRET INGREDIENT WAS THAT THEY TOOK OUT OF THE ORGINIAL PRODUCT. GREED IS NOT ONLY DESTROYING THIS COUNTRY, BUT IT IS DESTROYING MARRIAGES… THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.
We also provide a 10% discount to all military and first responders, run specials on various medications throughout the year, and provide patients with a $25 credit on their birthdays. This doesn’t take into account if the patient is ordering injectable nutrients or other supplements from us, or if they are having other issues treated (Thyroid or ED for example). Anytime someone calls in, though, we are very clear about all the costs, and provide clear costs of all medications. The largest variable is the lab work, but I know in the past that form some patients on a budget Dr. Saya has been able to adjust his required follow up labs to something more affordable.
