A typical dumb doctor. You should never treat something before you know the cause. A few blood tests can determine the cause. Go get a simple blood test for FSH, LH (sex hormones), and TSH (thyroid). If LH and FSH are low you can suspect a brain tumor, if FSH and LH are high then you know your testicles have been damaged and there can be no repair. If LH is low but FSH is high then you are having pitutiary problems and you can take drugs to increase your sperm if you want. If your TSH is abnormal, then you have a thyroid problem that when fixed may very well fix your testosterone and sperm problems too.
