What Is a Normal Testosterone Level for Young Men?
Rethinking the 300 ng/dL cutoff for testosterone deficiency in men 20-44 Years Old.

Testosterone reference ranges for older men are long established in the urological literature. However, few studies have examined testosterone levels in young men. As a result, clinicians have struggled to counsel and evaluate young men presenting with concerns about testosterone deficiency.

In A Patient's Own Words

When I came to see Dr. Werner, it was for a combination of erectile dysfunction and andropause. I had been seeking help for 10 years, trying different solutions, with very little success. I was put on Viagra at one point, which worked great at first, but it had side effects that I wasn’t happy with at all. I started searching on the web for options, and found Dr. Werner.

My first impression of him was how transparent and truthful he is. He consults with you on a very personal basis. He is so consistent with his quality of care, and always looks you in the eye when you speak with him. My treatment was individual to my issues, and Dr. Werner has so many tools to use to help you.

My sex life has totally improved. I had problems, and Dr. Werner was the solution. I recommend him to anyone that is having problems with their sex lives. He is not just “some guy” that will prescribe you a pill and walk away. I am so happy I found him, and my life has changed for the better.
