Customer Reviews 5 (3 reviews)

Mens health clinics are a dime a dozen. If you search for “Hormone treatment (city name)” you’ll be bombarded with results of TRT Clinics and more confused than helped.

Marek health wants to help you with that decision.

But are they any good?

Do their treatments work or are they just another overpriced health clinic using an exclusive pharmacy trying to shill you product?

Let’s find out. We’ll go through their offerings, prices, and expertise to see if they can actually provide you with what you need.

Best Marek Alternative for TRT

Special Offer $35 for Labs!

FountainTRT

FountainTRT has legitimately built a cutting edge TRT service. When you go to their website and take their quiz you realize that other TRT providers are stuck in 2015.

FountainTRT feels a lot closer to a startup than a TRT clinic. They provide a seamless quiz, evaluation, and then give you an option to do blood work locally at a LabCorp location, or alternatively have some COME TO YOUR HOUSE.

And the blood work costs $35, thats insane. Marek will charge you $250 for bloods + 200 for a consultation. So if you’re strictly looking for TRT, this is an insane deal.

They are a premium concierge service that is on call 24/7 for any questions and urgent labs required.

While other companies hire freelance professionals, their medical team is comprised of full time doctors that will monitor you on a 1:1 basis. They also offer Tadalafil, HCG, Anastrozole and Enclomiphene, and are constantly adding new treatments.

“The Future of Health Optimization”

Marek prides themselves with cutting edge research guided treatment.

Too many providers are relying on decades old data and studies to guide treatment options. A good example is the rise of Enclomiphene as a Clomid alternative, until very recently you were either provided with TRT or Clomid, which can have severe side effects that would really fuck with you. But Marek is one of the first providers to offer the Enclomiphene alternative that for sciencey reasons has a much less severe impact on your emotional state.

As we review their site, Marek wants to be thought of as a cutting edge provider but who are they?

Who is Marek Health?

From MPMD.com

I first heard about Marek via Derek from More Plates More Dates, aka the Delt God (TM). Derek has been a leading broscientist via his Youtube Channel and blog and has always been a resource for us bros who don’t want to read scientific papers but want to get jacked and get laid.

Derek has created a few brands over the years like Gorilla Mind which makes supplements, and recently has partnered up with Mike Stratton to create Marek Health.

From Mareks’ Twitter

Marek has a fast growing team with admin, patient care coordinators, Doctors and Nurse Practitioners.

Marek has a team of PCCs, Drs, NPs, and a business team comprised of industry veterans and fitness buffs that are obsessed with hormone optimization. Even the intake coordinators know more about hormonal health than my PCP.

Marek Health TRT, Peptides, and Blood Work Cost

We’ve broken down some cost ideas based on your treatments prescribed.

Costs start at $250 for an intake session with your PCC, however that fee goes towards your first doctors session as well. They can range from $500-1000 for a typical treatment cycle of 6-12 months for something like hair or TRT treatments.

One thing to keep in mind when ordering pharmaceuticals from Marek is that they are using incredibly advanced compounding pharmacies to provide these treatments. So costs are closer to pharmaceuticals than they might be to research companies online.

Blood work: Expect to pay a minimum of $200 for initial blood work to get a good idea of your baseline. This might need to be done up to 3 times, once prior, once during and once after your cycle. So keep that in mind.

Peptides: 15mg of BPC-157 cost us $350

Enclomiphene: 30 day supply of 12.5mg cost us $75.

What Does Marek Do?

Hormone Levels

Men will often suffer from Hypogonadism, the term used to describe men with low Testosterone levels. Or they may suffer from elevated Estrogen levels. Marek health can test and cater to these needs by TRT – Testosterone Replacement Therapy.

This may include various options of boosting natural Test levels in the body, either by using products such as Enclomiphene, but the medication used will range depending on what the clinic deems best.

Marek health will also cover other issues. Men and women can both suffer from hypogonadism, the unfortunate situation where the Thyroid gland does not produce enough T4. This will affect almost all the mechanisms in the body, as the Thyroid has various feedback loops in the body. Having low Thyroid function can lead to weight gain, Prolactin issues, and various other health impacts. Marek health can administer

Hair

As humans age, some of us will begin to lose hair. This may be due to hormonal levels, low functioning Thyroid Gland, drug use, or just the genetics of the person in question. Marek health can help individuals who suffer from hair loss by administering 82D. 82D is a Topical Dutasteride compounded with minoxidil, tretinoin, and fluocinolone. This has been shown to help with hair loss, of course as part of expert guided medical care.

Sex Drive

As both men age, hormones levels will begin to dwindle and we will become less interested in sex. Sex will become a job. This is a sign that your hormones might not be in the correct range anymore. Sildenafil will be administered by Marek health, which will allow more successful erections and sex as well.

Body

The body is fleeting, and we sometimes need an extra boost. In stead of looking at straight up drugs, research has shown that looking at something like Peptides could help. Peptides are simply chains of Amino Acids that will have certain effects when administered to the body. This could be a safer experience compared to using certain drugs. Interested individuals can get help with joint pain, body fat, inflammation, muscle wastage and nerve pain.

Care Process and Procedures

Every patient starts with the same process, regardless of what you come to marek for you need to see a patient care coordinator and do the intake process, along with blood tests.

Step 1) Intake Session

Once you go to the Marek Health site you’ll be prompted to fill out a questionnaire and quiz that will help Marek guide you along your treatment process. The onboarding requires a $250 deposit that will go towards your first provider consultation along with your blood tests. They also require that you have a signed physical from your primary care doctor (or other medical provider).

Step 2) Patient Care Coordinator (PCC) visit

Before you get to see a Dr., a PCC will interview you via telehealth service and will learn about your current needs and symptoms. The interview will last about 30 minutes and in this time you’ll really break down what your symptoms are, and what an optimal life looks like for you. The PCC will then likely prescribe you blood test that you’ll get taken prior to seeing the Dr.

Step 3) Blood Tests

Once your patient care coordinator (PCC) takes your information, he’ll email you back with a list of blood tests that they’ll want in order to provide you with the right care. I found that the blood work they wanted to see to be significantly superior to what I was being required by other Doctors and providers (More on this later.)

Step 4) See the Doctor(s)

Once you have your blood work, your PCC will schedule a visit with the Doctor (Or NP) that will then prescribe you a treatment plan. This is by far the most important step since it will dictate what you will be giving your body for 3-6 months, depending on what you’re going to try to treat.

Step 5) Start Your Treatment

After your provider call you’ll get a follow up email with the treatments recommended by the physician, you can go through this and decide what you want to move forward with, I was personally given a tad too many options and opted instead for a simper regimen that worked very well.

Once you respond with your desired treatment plan your PCC will then arrange for payment, shipping, and you’ll get your meds from an approved pharmacy (We’ve asked Marek details on how they choose compounding pharmacies).

Step 6) Follow Up

Your treatment can run anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months. Once your treatment plan is over you’ll have another call with your PCC. During this call they will ask you about your progress and have you take some more blood tests to gauge your progress.

Step 7) Repeat from Step 3

Once you’ve finished your first treatment cycle you’ll be asked to take another round of blood work to see where your body’s baseline is, from there your provider will be able to make an educated decision about the next steps.

Where is the blood work performed?

Marek has partnered up with with Labcorp for all blood tests and lab work. Labcorp takes blood work at Walgreens locations all over the US and has availabilities open all the time. We found them to be a super convenient experience.

  4. This company is in trouble (Dec 2023). They are having “technical issues” which they can’t seem to resolve, even after weeks of “dedicated” effort. Trust them to process any of your information in a timely manner? Not now. Sure, try to sign up if you can — but the response will be delays and excuses about “technical issues.” Stay away.
