NEW YORK (Legal Newsline) — New York Attorney General Barbara D. Underwood announced June 1 that Ageless Men’s Health P.C. has agreed to settle allegations it misled consumers about the way it diagnosed and treated low testosterone in men.
According to Underwood’s office, the company failed to inform its patients that it did not follow the evidence-based practices created by leading medical organizations. The company therefore diagnosed low testosterone and addressed potential side effects of treatments while ignoring the advice of medical experts across the nation. Ageless also allegedly used a deceptive “low T” quiz that misled patients about a low testosterone diagnosis.
“Every New Yorker is entitled to full and honest disclosures about the limitations and risks of any health related diagnosis or treatment,” Underwood said in a statement. “Our office will continue to hold accountable clinics that mislead New Yorkers.”
Handling the case for New York were assistant attorney general Jonathan Zweig, former volunteer assistant attorney general Matthew Reisman and assistant attorney general Sika Yeboah-Sampong. The Health Care Bureau is part of the Social Justice Division. Executive deputy attorney general Matthew Colangelo leads the Social Justice Division.
