    He doesn't just hand over prescriptions for test. He has a formula that is amazing simple....yet not embraced by the medical community as a whole because most docs think you can just rub Androgel on someone and that will fix their hypogonadism. Dr. Crisler also incorporates HCG, Arimidex and Pregnelonone when needed to keep your hormones completely regulated (things the bodybuilding community have been doing for years)

    His goal is usually to keep you in the upper 1/3 of the normal test level, so me going from 163 to 600 or a little higher should hopefully make me feel a lot better.

    All of the local docs I have been to have all been blown away that i was 29 years old and presenting with these problems, and they were all like "Well, maybe we can do something to get your test back up around 300 or so." Yeah, thats sweet of you doc, feeling like I'm 60 instead of 90 really isn't good enough though.

    Dr. Crisler also addresses Adrenal insufficiency/fatigue and possible Hypothalmic/Pituitary/Adrenal tumors.

    So basically, he is pioneering HRT protocols for the medical community and is the only man in the country I feel comfortable to allow them to manipulate my hormones.

    Cliffs: He really is that good, don't be so cynical. :h5:

    Good Luck bro, still can't believe you are dealing with this crap. I just got a script for Andro, get monthly blood test levels and that is about it. So far so good. I think a majority of people consider a good doc someone who prescribes injectables and not the gel version. :o

    That's hilarious. Swale??
    1. He's not the best or even an MD
    2. He learned everything he knows from our boards. He is not the innovative, cutting edge, HRT doc that he puts himself out to be. He was banned from several boards for trolling for patients when he really had no idea what he was doing.

    To his credit he took what we (Me, Macro, Nandi and others) posted and made a nice little cottage business for himself. He had never even heard of HCG before he came to the boards. Go look up his old posts, if they're still there. Do a search. He pioneered nothing.

    Tell him Ulter said hello. :)

    My doctor prescribed me androgel when my levels were 176. I just had my levels checked a week ago and it came back at 1054. I'd say androgel works just fine in my case.

    I wonder why so many young adult males suffer from low testosterone. Genetics or maybe poor nutrition when young? Is the water we drink causing it? Maybe it all started with the women's rights movement? It could be the shitty music that you damn kids listen to!!

    Men's health had an article recently talking about it. There's something like a 30% reduction in test levels in young males over a 50 year period or something crazy like that. I'm sure they gave some reasons for it, but I don't remember them off the top of my head.
