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. Sander Gothard was recommend to me by a family friend. Very pleased they told me about him. I am now blessed for having Dr. Gothard has my physician; he is professional, courteous, great bedside manners, takes times to go over test results and answer questions, he listens to your concerns. One of the many things that makes him a great doctor is that he does not push pills/medications, instead discussing not only the best options for the needed care, but also the plan to get you healthy again. If you like having quick access to things; his practice offers the option to use their app to retrieve results, correspond with them and more. If not, the office staff provides good customer service. Dr. Gothard’s medical assistant is Bre, she too is courteous and professional. Dr. Gothard and Bre make a great team. I have recommended Dr. Gothard to many people I know. He deserves more than 5 stars. The world needs more physicians like him. I highly recommend Dr. Sander Gothard."- O.C. / Google / Jan 11, 2022

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.
