How does The Whitehall Clinic manage low testosterone?
Some clinics operate remotely, asking you to complete questionnaires, send your blood tests through the post and then issue supplements. But we’re different, we believe in patient-centred care which is safe, evidence based and conveniently delivered by our consultant endocrinologist Dr. Shafiq Khan.
Many patients opt for our andropause screening panel before their appointment with our specialist in testosterone deficiency. This allows for a more accurate diagnosis by excluding other potential causes of your symptoms.
The test panel consist of:
At your appointment, our consultant will carry out a deep-dive of your symptoms alongside a physical examination, allowing for a more accurate diagnosis and more appropriate management.
If you choose to have the tests following your assessment appointment, your consultant will arrange a review to discuss your results and management options.
If testosterone replacement treatment has been advised, we will arrange prescriptions of testosterone replacement therapy to be issued by your NHS GP or we ourselves will issue you with a private prescription.
Where a testosterone injection has been prescribed, our team at The Whitehall Clinic can administer this to avoid delays - this normally happens within 3 days of your appointment.
Please note, some NHS GP surgeries will not administer or prescribe testosterone, with current NHS waiting times extending into the months, further delays with your treatment and review appointments may be expected.
Once you have commenced testosterone replacement therapy, you will have a structured plan including lab monitoring alongside an annual review with your specialist and a personal treatment coordinator.
The aim of your treatment plan should be to safely achieve a total testosterone of at least 15 nmol/l and to ensure symptomatic improvement.
All of this is delivered seamlessly at times convenient to you.

A message from Dr Shafiq Khan our Consultant Specialist in testosterone deficiency syndrome -
“Many men shrug off and put up with the symptoms associated with low testosterone as an unpleasant part of getting older. But you should address symptoms that interfere with your quality of life. If you’re noticing bothersome signs of low testosterone, book your screen detailed assessment and a discuss of treatment options”.
