I've been in contact with defy medical. If I get approved for treatment I will definitely tell you how it goes.

It's kind of an ordeal moving from one clinic to another in my experience but I'm watching this/Defy very closely because it seems that beside Dr Crisler, Defy is on the cutting edge in mu opinion. With my current situation I'm able to get a lab or two on my own and medicate myself as it were. So far they're not objecting to my self prescribed protocol which I think is fine as long as I'm not abusing the pharms. Which I'm not, I just don't abide by the prescribed doses or frequency of injections.

I've done a lot of research on this and if I were in a situation where I needed a non-local, out of pocket option I'd go with Defy.  They seem to know their stuff and many guys have had good experiences with them.

Started Defy medical today.  Very reasonably priced, very good chat with Dr Saya.

I have been looking around for a more well rounded provider. My doctor is only familiar with T and provides nothing else. I was on Defy's website but saw nothing about costs. Does anyone know what their fee(s) is?

I would call or email them and ask. When I was looking into them a while back they were very quick to answer any questions. I don't remember exactly what the costs were but I'm sure a quick phone call or email would get you the information.

Yes because I'm going to use them. Their fee's are $150 for their initial blood work. Then $150 for the hour phone consult with Dr Saya then every 6 months you do another round of bloodwork and another consult with either Dr Saya or his nurse. $65 and $45 respectively.

That is a very affordable fee.  I would go with Defy for sure.  As a former patient of Crisler, I would not recommend him.

I don't use Defy or Dr. Crisler, but my current Dr. has me doing labs and tweaking my protocol every month until I achieve some improvement in symptoms. Waiting 6 months for a follow up seems like an awful long time.

6 months is a while, I am with Defy as of yesterday.  I need to force myself to not change anything for at least 6 weeks, so it will help me in that regard.

I took some steps asked some questions and got the answers I needed so I'm pretty close to switching. For the record, Defy, unlike Low T Center, in this case does NOT make you stop cold turkey so that they can test you, assuming of course you're already undergoing HRT.

They do what you prefer. Now Dr Saya prefers to use IM injectables but will do gels and I believe SubQ. As well as HCG if you would like. I think it's $70 for 11,000 IU of HCG

Yup, my new protocol for 6 weeks:

50mgT, with 500 HCG IU, E3D

Also some of his injectable nutrients.

I love that it isn't any monthly fee, you just pay for product.

Awesome. Sounds like what I'm hoping for... Only 50mg of T though? Is that E3D as well as the HCG?
