Low T level, is it time to change endocrinologist?

I am 33 years old and was diagnosed with low testosterone in November by the PCP. My testosterone level was in the 190's on a range of 250 - 1100. He referred me to a endocrinologist.

After testing the endo started me on Andogel 1.62% 40.5 mg per day. I recently had my two month follow-up. I eventually heard back from them my numbers were good and they had phoned in a renewal to the pharmacy. Since starting treatment I've only felt slightly better.

A week has passed and a saw my actual numbers from the lab and my T level was 293 on the same 250 - 1100 scale.

It seems od to me that during treatment you would consider the bottom 5% of the normal range as "good". I followed up with the endo's office today and they are telling me the numbers doesn't matter as long as it's anywhere in the normal range. This doesn't seem to jive with what I see online.

I'm thinking it's time to change doctors. Any opinions?
