For NY, Florida, & Texas Patients: Due to COVID-19, we've shifted all appointments to an online visit with a medical provider. If the provider determines that based on your medical history you may have low testosterone, they will schedule a time for a phlebotomist to come to your house or office to collect a blood sample to check your testosterone levels. The provider will share the results and a personalized treatment plan with you via telephone or video call.

How to minimize your chance of infection
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being out in public. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are also effective if used for 20 seconds.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. This virus lives on surfaces for hours and enters your body through these sites.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home if you are sick (except to get medical care).
Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow. If you use a tissue, wash your hands afterward.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces (like doorknobs and light switches). Regular household cleaners are effective.
Get plenty of rest, drink plenty of fluids, eat healthy foods, and manage your stress to keep your immunity strong.
