An essential part of enhancing your health is finding an experienced Testosterone Optimization Therapy (TOT) doctor who can help you optimize your hormones to run as efficiently as possible and for as long as possible.
Vetting Your TOT Doctor
Much of the time, the primary objective of our medical industry is to treat disease by medicating the symptoms instead of correcting the cause. However, you’re not looking for someone to cure you; you need a doctor to help you optimize your health and well-being. Because it’s critical that you work with the right physician, you can’t be afraid to ask questions. By having these ten questions prepared, the doctor will know you’ve done your research. Of course, you need to respect that the physician will have specific practice-based preferences based on their own professional experience. However, they should be open to being your partner in managing your health and not be just another “White Lab-Coat God Complexed Dictator.” These ten critical questions to ask your doctor will help you identify if they are qualified to treat you and ultimately, optimize your testosterone levels. The doctor’s answers to these questions will give you an idea of their practice-based preferences and most importantly, their willingness to partner with you on your TOT journey.
- How long have you been managing patients on TOT, and how much of your total practice do those patients represent?
- Do you have a preferred form of therapy – injections, gels, oral forms?
- How do you determine your dosing schedule for a new patient?
- What is your opinion on the usage of AI’s?
- What blood labs are you going to use before initiating TOT? When do you go to labs again once TOT starts?
- How many times will you want to test blood per year?
- What is your preferred therapy for maintaining fertility (hCG, hMG, Clomid, etc.)?
- Will you use these medications with or without concomitant TOT (i.e., at the same time as TOT)? Explain the dosage strategy to me.
- How long does it typically take until I start seeing results, or feeling diﬀerent?
- Will you allow me to administer my TOT injections, upon scripting injectable testosterone?
When taking advice from a doctor for your health, take a look at their results. If someone is giving you information about how to optimize your health, a reliable indicator of credibility is their physical condition. Would you take financial advice on how and where to invest your money from a recent college graduate who only has a bachelor’s degree but no financial assets OR from an investor with a multi-million-dollar investment portfolio? Skin in the game is everything, and this is a principle for areas outside of your health as well. At TOT Revolution, we collaborated with the top progressive physicians around the world and combined their experience-based knowledge with the latest medical advancements. We want to help get you started on your TOT journey and the best way for you to begin is by purchasing The TOT Bible.
