If you could avoid going to your doctor, we know you would. A doctor’s visit is something you want to keep off your schedule. However, when you’re facing worsening health issues like extreme fatigue, erratic weight gain or losing weight too fast or worse, a steadily slowing down sex drive/libido, you know it’s time to get your health checked.
These symptoms often point to one cause – Low Testosterone. Testosterone is the male hormone that functions to develop sexual drive, muscle growth and general well-being. When your testosterone levels fall short of the normal range, you experience the symptoms previously mentioned. When you keep experiencing such symptoms, your quality of life would slowly and steadily decrease.
What if there was a way to restore your normal testosterone levels? Fortunately, with modern medicine, there is a way. At Infinity Medical Services, we offer Testosterone Replacement Therapy or TRT.
We encourage patients to drop by for a consultation. Our doctors can determine if you are a good candidate for the therapy. We diagnose testosterone level irregularity and conduct related tests in order to prescribe the most fitting therapy plan for each patient.
With successful testosterone replacement therapy, you’ll feel like a new man – stronger, feeling younger and most importantly, healthier.

- There is a normal range for male testosterone levels. In healthy men, testosterone levels (also known as “T levels”) from 300 ng/dL to 1000 ng/dL are considered normal
- Low testosterone is a condition that occurs when
testosterone levels fall below the normal range
- Testosterone can fall below normal levels when a signaling
problem between the brain and the testes causes a drop in the
amount of testosterone that is being produced. Another reason for low testosterone levels is that your body simply can’t produce enough testosterone due to failure of the testes themselves
Should you ask your doctor to check your testosterone levels? If you are experiencing any of the above signs or symptoms, discuss them with your doctor to determine if you should be tested.
