Can anyone offer an opinion as to this doctor's approach and ideas about TRT? My nurse says I'm ready for TRT, and she refers to Dr. Hertoghe's expertise. Thanks

My father went to his clinic for his TRT.

First: you will never see him in person. You can only have an appointment with one of his disciples.

Second: they put everyone on a standard protocole of
Test E
DHEA
Pregnenolone
T3
Cortisone
Vitamin D
Melatonin

They don't looks in depth at your blood test, you get the same treatment as everyone.

Some of the things in that protocol would have given my serious problems (preg, DHEA, T3) as I tried most of it in addition to my TRT and regretted it.

They must have a high patient turnover rate.

They put people straight on Cortisone?

Wow! Thanks. I just listened to a webinar of his and was pretty impressed. But, I've been fooled before. I understand he's starting clinics in the U.S.

Yep, it's like a factory.
I would avoid them like the plague unless you know your body well and are there for a prescription.

Thierry Hertoghe is overrated. He isn't up to date on the current, modern trt-practices. He prescribes test E injections every 2-3 weeks and an AI to anyone above the range of estradiol.

I have a friend who's currently living in Belgium who went to the Hertoghe Clinic. He told me the Hertoghe Clinic apparently has two sides: the public side of Thierry talking passionately about hormone therapy and the money grabbing side of his uninterested doctors - Thierry himself only does consultations with high profile clients - who give everyone the standard protocol. They order expensive blood tests but don't actually do anything of importance with them. They don't track you but they still want regular appointments just to earn a paycheck.

Yep, exactly my experience with him.

There's an interview of Dr. Hertoghe in latest issue of Life Extension Magazine (August 2021). Among other things, he promotes Paleolithic diet to achieve most benefit from hormone therapy. I've talked to him and attended some of his lectures at the A4M conferences (2016,2017, I think). My impression was, don't make a trip to Belgium.

When starting to look into the topic I obviously came across some of his videos and originally found them interesting(and at the time I thought informative). The more I learned though, the more some of his stuff seemed off to me. As you said the AI thing(and yes I know there may be cases where they’re useful), and especially how he recommends finasteride for anyone at all concerned about losing hair. I also think a minimalist approach is good, especially starting out…but listening to him you’d think you need to supplement with 26 hormones just to be happy after the age of 50. I get the feeling you could go to him with a broken toe and he’d prescribe a hormone for it.
