Yes his posts were amazing. Amazing enough for me to book a consultation with him.Dr. Mariano knew the correlation between testosterone and dopamine. His posts and research on the subject were amazing.
Yes, I also have the same experience sadly. Also the doctor who you get to talk to about hormones is a dermatologist and he seems very incompetent, arrogant and not interested in what you have to say. The average bodybuilder on roids seems to know more sadly...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.
Yes the nice Dr H in the vids is misleading, the clinic is very different, I got the impression it was get the cash, yes cash, and out the door you go, far from ethical. I think they prescribe so much stuff because they get a kick back from the pharmacy. its a pity because Dr H may know a lot of stuff, but his main thing is making money out of "training" other docs and selling video courses and books and touring the world doing seminars. He has hard selling vids on youtube as if he was selling double glazing windows or used cars. Its become a bit pharsical. I think he is good at anti aging regimes for himself but I dont think they care about patients, that was my impression having been there a few times. The thing is he has a monopoly in Europe , its not like the US where their is a choice.Yes, I also have the same experience sadly.

Also it's clear their focus is on old women getting botox, and other "longevity" grifting. That's where they make the real money. But men with hormonal problems? Hardly any money in that. Even saw some people comment that they advise some people there a sh*t ton of supplements and herbs that cost thousands of dollars/month...
The youtube videos of Hertoghe are a facade. It's really sad though, hardly any good endos on mainland europe.
But I have to mention that @K.pietera did have a good experience with Hertoghe clinic though.
