Our Vitality Program

 

With age, Testosterone, Growth, and Thyroid hormones decline. This has profound effects on our metabolism, as well as our mental and physical well-being. Our approach is to customize hormone therapy and optimization in a patient-centered manner that is both safe and effective. We do not believe that a one-size-fits-all approach can achieve your goal, which is to not just live long, but also well and happy.

 

Given that the western food industry focuses on quantity and price, as opposed to quality and nutritional value, our diet has become energy rich, calory-rich yet nutritionally poor. In fact, in our practice, we find that most patients are either deficient or have suboptimal levels of important vitamins such as vitamin B12 and Vitamin D; how is this acceptable in the wealthiest and most fertile land in the world? The supplement industry is not regulated the same way as the pharmaceutical industry; as such, most "vitamins" available commercially are usually ineffective, under-dosed, and are very poorly absorbed in the gut; optimizing these levels should be a main pillar of any comprehensive vitality program. Suboptimal vitamin D and B12 levels affect bone health, immunity, colon cancer risk, energy, stamina, ability to burn fat and build muscle.

 

We are blessed to be living in a nation that enables us to optimize our hormones and vitamins, so why not take advantage of that?!

 

Our program is best suited for proactive patients who have a serious interest in self improvement and pushing their limits outside of their comfort zone. We can optimize your hormonal milieu but we have no control over your diet and exercise habits; still, we will educate you and coach you on these along the way, employing the most current knowledge on exercise and nutrition.

The more you cooperate with us, the sooner you achieve your goals and BEAT YOUR OWN EXPECTATIONS!

 

We start with a simple lab test to assess whether you would be a candidate for our program; this is done prior to meeting with Dr. Abdullah.

To assess candidacy for our Vitality program, you require the following screen:

  • Total Testosterone obtained between 8-10 AM. 

 

The Vitality Program:

  • Program Goal: Testosterone, thyroid, vitamin D and B12 optimization. In certain cases, we also prescribe Growth Hromone (see below!)

*Price includes chart review, billing/payment coordination with pharmacy, medication price, and shipping. Price is higher if require higher dose/quantity.

 

What is a chart review? Whenever you order Testosterone or any other pharmaceutical agent through our refill request portal, Dr. Abdullah must access your chart, examine notes, lab results, and any email exchange between you and him, to ascertain that the ordered agent, strength and dose are apropriate and safe, or whether a visit or blood work is required. This is considered physician cognitive labor and generally takes 10 minutes, which is necessary to ensure your safety. What you pay on our refill request portal covers this service...in addition to the medication itself, its shipping, and any related care coordination tasks performed by our staff.  

 

Average Monthly Expense (includes visits, labs, prescriptions):

Prices are estimates and are based on a typical 12-month therapy program. If less/more labs/visits needed due to dose adjustment, cost will change accordingly. See below!

  • Year 1: As low as $247/mo.

  • Year 2 and after: As low as $164/mo.

 

Additional Fees:

We hope you had a chance to review our vitality program as detailed above. In the first year, there will be 5 visits (initial, 2 months follow up, 5 months, 8 months, and 12 months); thereafter, biannual (every 6 months). However, not every patient will be optimized by the end of the first year. For instance, Dr. Abdullah may still need to optimize certain labs in between biannual visits; In this case, depending on severity and number of abnormal labs, you may or may not need a visit and an assessment of just the abnormal labs; the cost of these visits would be $200 plus whatever lab we are trying to optimize. This is to ensure your safety and that you achieve the full potential of the program.

These are prescriptions that not all patients will need.

  • HCG: $127/mo*.

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Therapy:

In a subset of patients (men and women), Growth Hormone Therapy is beneficial when prescribed and clinically and biochemically monitored by a qualified experienced physician. In fact, the FDA has approved certain brands of recombinant Human Growth Hormone for the treatment of Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency, which is diagnosed by both clinical and laboratory findings. 

HGH therapy (when indicated) has an added cost to the price of the visit ($100) and the labs ($100)--in addition to the cost of the medication itself ($500 and up/mo).
