Low Testosterone (Low T)
Millions of men are living their lives with low T, and suffering from side effects such as decreased sex drive, depression, weight gain, and erectile dysfunction (ED). Testosterone levels begin to decline at a rate of 10% per decade, and may fall more rapidly with stress, environmental toxins such as xenoestrogens, and a poor diet. Testosterone Replacement Therapy may be the right choice to improve symptoms while working to improve the conditions for health and well-being.

Dr. Sorr is committed to customizing a formula based on your individual needs. Diagnostic testing of hormones and urine metabolites give the best strategy for designing a healthy plan for the longevity of treatment.
There are many different ways to administer hormones, including creams, injections, pellet implants, oral capsules, and troches. Safety and effectiveness vary between these methods.
Dr. Sorr does not administer pellets. He believes they have too many potential negative side effects and are not congruent with natural hormonal cycles. In addition, once the pellets are in, doses are difficult to adjust, and removal can pose complications or lingering side effects. If needed, however, the doctor will work with patients who have previously received pellets to formulate a better plan for future treatment.
