Providers and Clinics in DFW Area
« on: December 13, 2016, 07:37:51 pm »
For the past year I've been treated by Augie Galindo at the Testosterone Centers of Texas in Frisco.  I would go in for a weekly injection of Testosterone, HCG and a half-tab of an anti-estrogen pill. Unfortunately, because of Obamacare, my company is totally revamping its insurance package, which I am opting out of and instead using my retired military insurance -- TRICARE.  TCT doesn't take TRICARE, which is very unfortunate. 

But now I am either going to have to go back to using some type of schmear on topical like Androgel or Testim or whatever is in TRICARE's formulary, or pay for a Urologist to inject me weekly and have a $20 or $30 copay everytime, and I doubt that they'll prescribe me the anti-estrogen or HCG.  And if they give me a script for HCG, I don't think that's even on the TRICARE formulary.

I know the Low T Center in Frisco takes TRICARE but it's going to be $20 a shot, and they use a compounding pharmacy called DrugCrafters that does not take TRICARE so the HCG and anti-estrogen will be out of pocket.

Anybody have any recommendations?

If you're going to forgo insurance then also consider site sponsor Defy Medical. You're in a big enough metro area that there may be some enlightened doctors who would both take your insurance and give you what you need, but it can be tough tracking them down.

There might be someone right up your alley.  Went to an excellent doc who knew his thyroid like a master and also was very knowledgeable on testosterone stuff, Dr John Launius in Lewisville, Tx.  He doesn't take insurance, and I think was around $300 for a 2 hour session.  General practitioner with another doctorate in pharmacy, so he really knows his med.  I think the main reason he doesn't take insurance is because he is a huge advocate for naturally dessicated thyroid (Armour, etc.).  He's a great guy, very smart, and did the best physical examination I've ever had by a doc.  He was investigated for prescribing lithium, which the committee considered outside of his expertise given that he isn't a psychiatrist (but he does have a doctorate in pharmacy so...), and also for the irrelevant and revealing charge for the board for prescribing armour thyroid and a patient had a hyperthyroid reaction. 

Trust me, he's a great doc.

I mean, you might want to leave your chainsaw in the car, though.

Chainsaws welcome. We have some tree work to be completed on the premises...of course he wouldn't have to COME to the premises for his consult though.

 ;D

I'm sure a nice chainsaw ripping sound heard over the phone would be enough to check your patient's estradiol levels. ;)
