Frequently Asked Questions

Some men don’t realize it, but having a primary care physician (PCP) that you trust is one of the best ways that you can stay in good health. Your PCP can provide many of the tools you need to maintain your vitality, including immunizations, screenings and other preventive care services. Your PCP can also help you if you have a sudden injury or urgent care need and require treatment. If this happens, you’ll be better prepared if you have an established relationship with a PCP.

Having an open dialog with your primary care physician about your concerns is important to maintain the best quality of life possible. Be honest with your primary care physician if you are experiencing any of the following issues:

  • Difficulty managing stress
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Pain or other troublesome symptoms
  • Sexual performance issues
  • Side effects from your medication
  • Issues with addiction

At the Men’s Wellness Clinic, we understand how to treat these concerns in men of all ages. We’re here to provide the answers you need so you can start feeling better faster.

It’s complicated, but we believe there are many reasons for this. One is that men are less likely to receive preventive care than women are. They also tend to live less healthy lifestyles and work in more dangerous professions. At the Men’s Wellness Clinic, we understand the special challenges that men face and strive to provide care that helps men maintain active, fulfilling lives for as long as possible.

Men of African ancestry face even more health challenges than their white peers. Compared with white men, they have a higher risk for developing many conditions, including cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and stroke. Fortunately, early detection and preventive care may be able to help men of African ancestry address these higher risks.

Not all men will have the same symptoms of depression. But some of the signs include the following:

  • Anger or irritability
  • Loss of interest in work, family or hobbies
  • Low libido or issues with sexual performance
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Changes in sleep habits
  • Changes in eating habits
  • Drinking too much alcohol or using drugs
  • Withdrawing from family and friends

If you think you might be depressed, our primary care physicians can provide the respectful, supportive care that’s needed.
