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.

"This office is extremely busy yet very organized. I was there to request some records and the woman at one of the check in windows (I apologize for not remembering her name) was very polite and informed me that she was unable to help me with what I needed. However, she directed me very quickly through a door where I met with a gentleman named James who was not only polite and efficient he went above and beyond to provide me with all of the information I needed and he also helped me with instructions on how to access the portal. My experience there was very quick and pleasant. Thank you to those two people I encountered there, your service was remarkable."- M.C. / Google / May 25, 2021
"If you appreciate a Dr. that actually takes the time to listen and get to know you, this is the one for you. She's kind, explains things really well, and gives great advice. It's so rare to find doctors that don't rush you in and out. I almost don't want to post this so that she doesn't get busier...lol"- E.J. / Google / May 13, 2021
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.
