Welcome to our women visitors as well. We know from our experience in men’s health that is often the spouse or partner who takes the initiative to help men understand their health and well-being.
Andropause is real! The large percentage of men with low testosterone are not being treated for their andropause. These results are identical with what we have found in our Canadian clinic. If you or a loved one thinks they are suffering from low testosterone you or they should seek knowledgeable physicians like those at the Masters Men’s Clinic for diagnosis, education and treatment.

The Komer Method
The CORNERSTONE of The Komer Method is the attitude that only OPTIMAL is acceptable.
This encompasses optimal levels for hormones, blood chemistry, nutrients, supplements, nutrition, exercise and behavior for each individual.
Many lab ranges are very wide and are accepted as “normal”. Large portions of these ranges include levels that are far from ideal. The Komer Method has developed its own set of optimal ranges, and strives to achieve these for each patient.
When physicians treat abnormal blood sugars or high cholesterol or high blood pressure, they choose the ideal standard as the levels for a healthy young adult. However, when the same physicians correct abnormal hormone levels, they do not follow this practice. In fact, they will accept aging and deterioration of hormone levels as a normal event. Dr. Komer’s belief, and what has worked so successfully in his practice, is that achieving these optimum levels at any age fine tunes the body to minimize the effects of age, time and stress. These levels result in men and women who are their healthiest. They lead to a reduction in long term illness and an increase in well being.
These optimal values have been developed over years of experience, by research by Dr. Komer and others, and by patients reporting back what makes them feel their very best.
The Komer Method has developed its own protocols for diagnosis and for treatment for various conditions, and these have been tested and improved in thousands of individuals. Innovation and continuous improvement of all protocols is ongoing. Medical literature is reviewed daily to integrate new research into The Komer Method.
A major emphasis of the Komer Method has been dedicated to achieving ideal hormone levels in both genders, for such conditions as menopause in women and low testosterone in men.
Dr. Komer also treats other individuals, including both pro and amateur athletes, suffering from concussions or injuries. He has a particularly large percentage of men and women who are in the military, are police officers, correctional officers or firemen. These professions involve stress and long hours and sometimes trauma, which can lead to abnormal hormone levels. There is especially a need for understanding, assessment and treatment of these individuals.
Dr. Komer has been an innovator in bringing new techniques and new ideas to medicine and has, at times, stood alone in championing ideas that have turned out to be leading edge concepts in medicine. In his personal practice, he has over 12,000 women and 5,000 men in his program who are reaping the benefits of hormone restoration. They are feeling well and happy, functioning optimally and staying healthy.
