Research Project Description:

Men with symptoms of hypogonadism and low testosterone confirmed on blood draws may be treated for testosterone deficiency. The type of testosterone and application may be selected based on patient preference or what is recommended by the prescribing physician.

This research project would survey men currently on testosterone for their perceptions of the indications for starting testosterone and current type of testosterone therapy. The patient’s prescribing physicians would also be surveyed to evaluate their preferences for different types of therapy. Correlation between the patients and providers would also be investigated.
