i'm sure Dr. Susan is a very good doctor. in short, not only has he taken me off of the testosterone, he has changed my other medication from finasteride to Flomax. So the side effects from the lack of testosterone and the Flomax are unacceptable. I've gone this long with this current treatment and now you wanna change everything up.

Reviewed on Feb 2, 2021

Dr. Susan did very little if any patient assessment. Just stared at a computer screen and told me nothing was wrong with me. He totally missed the diagnosis of prostititus which he could of found with a simple physical exam. my primary care doctor ascertained the problem very quickly. Dr. Susan also ordered another CAT scan unnecessarily.
