Patient Health Support

Medical Professionals

The following doctors, psychologists and pharmacologists counsel PFS patients and their family members. Those listed here are aware of post-finasteride syndrome and, in some cases, see or have seen patients in their own practices who are believed to have the condition. None of these health professionals, however, professes to know the root cause(s) of PFS, nor claims to have a cure for the condition. Rather, they maintain an interest in helping PFS patients manage the condition as best as possible until clinical research, hopefully, leads to the development of effective therapies. Such management may include proper nutrition and exercise regimens, hormone therapy and/or psychological/family counseling. The Post-Finasteride Syndrome Foundation is not a referral service for these or any other health professionals, and itself does not claim to have any effective therapies for PFS.

If you would like to suggest adding a medical professional to this list, please email patient manager Philip Roberts at
