    As an FYI to assist patients during these unprecedented times (COVID-19), we have temporarily loosened some requirements for patients needing to transfer their HRT/TRT care from traditional physical locations to our remote telemedicine model. I will not elaborate here, but anyone seeking more...

    Question about Lab work quality

    I have good insurance. They cover all the tests Defy wants you to get, even the extra tests that aren't mandatory. I am pretty sure LabCorp is who would run the tests, if I have Defy send me the script and get them done on my own. Does Defy use a Lab that is better? Does anyone know what the...

    Thinking about contacting Defy - some random thoughts

    Been feeling really sluggish recently, so much so that I feel almost tingly/hazy at time in the mid to later afternoons and evenings and its been keeping me from having any energy to work out.

    New labs results in. SHBG still high.

    Hey, as a background to these labs, I was consistently taking 10 mcg of compounded t3 UNTIL I ran out. I ran out on a Monday, and had the labs completed the following Thursday as Defy wouldn't fill the T3 until labs were done, although they sat on the results. Other than that these are my...

    Starting TRT with Defy

    Feel free to move this post if needed. I didn’t see a place for logs and this seemed to be the best place. Yesterday I had my new-patient consult with Dr Calkins of Defy Medical. Man, Defy is great and Dr Calkins was awesome. He took the time to answer all of my questions and I felt like he...

    Defy Medical - Post Consultation Patient Service

    I'd like to hear from Defy Medical patients (or former patients) about their customer service after the initial consultation. I have my first appointment tomorrow, but I'm concerned because it took over a month to get an initial consultation *after* my labs were done. That means that the doctor...

    Defy Medical Physical?

    I’ve been trying to complete the Defy medical physical, but I can’t find anybody willing to do it. I’ve tried my GP, CVS, Walgreens and an urgent care near me. Defy patients, where do you get your physicals done and are you honest about what it’s for?

    Royal Men's Medical Center is NOT a bargain

    I was with Renew Youth for testosterone treatment for a monthly fee of $300. After a year I found Royal Men's Medical Center for $200 a month and switched. It seemed alright at the begining but even early on I felt it was a "cookie cutter" clinic. I wasn't impressed with Dr. Rodriguez. I was...

    Another Great Experience with Defy

    I had my initial consult with Dr. Saya last week, and I'm pretty darn impressed. The wait for the initial consult was definitively worth it. Dr. Saya was very knowledgeable about all the related blood work findings, and went through each area to make sure I understood any concerns he had. The...

    Who uses Gel? What does Defy Charge For Gel?

    I was just listening to a recent podcast with Dr. Crisler. He mentioned ideally he prefers men to be on T-Gel along with a daily shot of HCG or EOD. Is there anyone in this forum that is currently on a gel and seeing good results? Also, anyone know what the cost of Gel through Defy?
