June 2019 Topic: Father’s Day special!
In comparison to women, men are less likely to seek out preventative care. As a result, they usually only consult a physician when something is wrong. In honor of Father’s Day, Dr. J takes a look at some of the most common health issues that bring male patients into the office.
Topics include: “The Annual Visit” – how to make your annual visit truly preventative – learn what tests your doctor should be running and the importance of getting yearly bloodwork. Next, we dive deep into the alphabet soup of men’s health – PSA, BPH, DRE and ED. The discussion continues with testicular/prostate health, self-exams, prostate cancer, andropause, and finally we illuminate the causes of male pattern baldness.
