I have succeeded in getting an appointment with Dr. Shippen in July. Although I've been on TRT for over a year now, I'm not experiencing what I would consider to be the full range of benefits; namely overall vitality and sexual libido, even though my levels are good. I know a few members have been treated by Dr. Shippen, and I'm looking to get your take on your experience(s), as well as your satisfaction with your treatment. My hope is for him to straighten out my hormonal puzzle.
