What is the Process?
Contact the office closest to you via phone or through our web contact form. This will give us the information we need to get you started.
We have 18 locations across the Midwest and West Coast to best serve our clients’ needs.
Get your Labs
To begin the process we draw blood to find out where you are currently at.
Each of our locations is equipped with the ability to draw your labs but if it’s more convenient for you, we can order your labs at any LabCorp location.
Set an Appointment
Once your labs are back, we will set an appointment to meet with one of our providers to review your labs and determine if hormone therapy is right for you.
You can meet face-to-face or we can set up a telemedicine conference.
Formulate a Plan
After we decide that therapy is right for you, we will discuss the various treatment options we have and choose the one that best suits your goals.
We will continue to work together to adjust your plan as your goals change.

Who needs optimized hormones?
You may be suffering from Testosterone deficiency if you have the following symptoms:
- Reduced sex drive
- Hot flashes
- Muscle weakness and loss of muscle tone
- Weight gain (specifically the abdomen)
How much testosterone will I need?
Your team will carefully review your medical questionnaire, lab work, and records, and will prescribe the exact amount needed to optimize your levels. We use a combination of lab testing and continued monitoring of your results to identify the ideal dosages. Optimize U’s team uses creams, injections, or a combination of both.
Is Testosterone Optimization safe?
Yes. Many studies have shown that hormone therapy is safe when administered in the correct dosage and monitored by a qualified physician.
How long until I start to feel the result from hormone optimization?
Some patients begin to feel the effects immediately. Most start to see benefits between 4-6 weeks, and about 25% take about 6 months to see benefits. What is important to remember is it took a long time for your body to get to this point and it may take a few months to get your hormones back to being optimized.
Being active, following our workout plan, and sticking to a healthy diet plan will expedite the benefits of hormone optimization.
What health issues are associated with testosterone deficiency?
Low testosterone in the male body can be the result of a disorder called Hypogonadism. Testosterone affects bone mass, fat distribution, and muscle development. In addition, testosterone helps to maintain energy levels, fertility, and sex drive.
Are there any side effects of testosterone replacement therapy?
As you consider whether or not testosterone therapy is right for you, there are side effects of testosterone replacement that you need to take into account. For example, if you already struggle with sleep apnea, testosterone therapy could potentially make your sleep apnea worse.
Another side effect could be decreased testicular size, and, in some cases, a decrease in sperm count. Fluid retention, liver toxicity, enlarged breast size, increased red blood cells, and acne are also potential side effects of testosterone replacement therapy. If you start to experience any negative side effects, report them to your local clinic immediately.
How do I refill my medication?
To make it easy and convenient for you, we have many ways to refill:
- Use the “Refill my Meds” links found on the location pages
- Text our 24-hour refill hotline
- Scan the QR code found on your Optimize U reminder magnet
- Call the clinic
- Or just ask one of our staff next time you visit us
Remember that medications can take sometimes longer than a week to arrive at your home, so make sure to request refills when you have about 2 weeks of medication remaining.
When will I get lab work done?
Lab work will be done every 3 to 6 months. Our staff will call you when your lab work is due. It is important to note that if you feel there is something not exactly right, you are always welcome to get your labs done early.
