The Well Men Centre in Como has a relaxed informal environment designed to help you get the most out of your visit. It provides a ideal situation where you will feel comfortable to talk frankly and feel confident that your needs are at last being understood and fully addressed.

The initial appointment is devoted to the collection of information that, based on our 21 years experience, may have a bearing on the cause of your symptoms. This information includes your personal and medical history, life circumstances past and present, deeper examination of your symptoms and a psychometric personality test. The results of this test provides us with increased insight into you as an individual and the way your individual nature prompts you to process stress and trauma.

You should allow 3 hrs for this initial investigative appointment. Based on the findings relevant blood test requests may be provided along with a 7-day diary for you to complete before returning for a one hour follow up appointment to discuss and agree the best remedial/therapeutic way forward for you as an individual.

Because the commencement of treatment that introduces pharmaceutically manufactured testosterone  into your system invariabley shuts down your own capacity to produce your own testosterone (endogenous), for the last ten years our priority has been to research and discover drug free ways to restore and reboost your ability to make your own testosterone wherever possible, thus avoiding a lifelong dependence for quality of life on medication and its inherent side effects.

For some individuals however, medically prescribed and properly supervised pharmaceutically produced testosterone replacement is called for, often in conjunction with general health improvement strategies to ensure the best outcomes.  In this case your next appointment will be with the doctor who will manage this medical side of the health and wellbeing restoration plan that has been identified for you.

Over the years doctors working with us have made a number of life saving discoveries for patients, identifying other causes of symptoms, such as heart, thyroid and prostate problems. Often, certain types of stress and past traumas can have a devestating effect on hormonal health. In this case hormone replacement or supplementation may not be the best option for regaining long-term holistic health.

If hormone replacement is appropriate for you, doctor visits usually take up to 20 minutes and will be  Medicare rebateable. It is important that your progress is properly monitored.  After treatment has started, a follow up doctor visit is usually only needed after 6 weeks, then at three months and thereafter at 3 or 6 monthly intervals according to type of treatment that has been prescribed.
