Testosterone is a male hormone primarily produced in the testicles that helps maintain vital functions including bone density, fat distribution, muscle strength and mass, red blood cell production, sex drive and sperm production. In healthy men, testosterone levels are between 300 ng/DL and 1,000 ng/DL. Low testosterone levels affect each individual differently. For some, change in mood or interests may occur, while others may not notice a significant change at all. A testosterone check, offered by the family doctors of Plano, TX and Village Health Partners, will evaluate testosterone levels and determine if patients will need additional tests or treatments.

"Dr. Gothard has routinely gone above and beyond to help me through years of ups and downs. He helped me manage and master my asthma that had plagued me for years, he has helped me manage chronic migraines throughout my twenties and through all three postpartum years (late thirties), and is always accessible with helpful, thoughtful, and humorous advice. He took the time to break down what I thought was a spike in postpartum anxiety and depression, and diagnosed me with adult onset ADD (and if you're a woman/mom who understands how difficult managing life/family/career/marriage/friendship/oh...and maybe time for herself is, then you'll understand just how much of a LIFE CHANGER this diagnosis was). He was considerate, kind, and a listening ear throughout all of my miscarriages, and rejoiced with me when I welcomed new babies to our family. He listens to my needs and wants for quality/type of care, and honors those thoughts and wishes. He is not quick to diagnose or prescribe, but instead takes his time to get to know you and your illness or problem before presenting a solid treatment decision for you to consider. He has referred me out to stellar specialty doctors, who have helped me with other health matters outside his GP, and he checked back in with me after those referrals to make sure that I received quality care. He genuinely cares and takes to the time to check in and see how me and my family are doing. He understands and empathizes with the stressors that come with being a teacher during a pandemic, wrangling three small kiddos, and laughs with me at the chaotic mess that life can be during all of this. While I have moved a bit further away from his practice, I will always stay with Dr. G because I know he truly does love his career and his patients. I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that I would not be as healthy, strong, or sane as I am without the guidance, kindness, and care from Dr. Gothard. I could not recommend another GP any more highly than Dr. Sander Gothard."- L.M. / Google / Nov 04, 2020

About the Procedure
Low testosterone can cause physical changes to the body such as thinning muscles, hair loss, softer and smaller testicles, and larger breasts. Symptoms of low testosterone include changes in sexual function, sleep patterns, physical appearance and emotions. A blood test is the best way to find out if you are suffering from low testosterone, and can determine whether or not you are a good candidate for testosterone therapy. Testosterone therapy will help patients diagnosed with low testosterone to improve their bone density, enhance mood, and have a lower risk for diabetes. Upon having their blood drawn and tested, patients will be able to discuss with their physician which therapy options will be most beneficial to them.
