Men who take control of their health empower themselves to live longer, disease-free lives. A lifetime of good health starts with prevention, including annual wellness exams and screenings. A men’s health doctor can be your greatest partner in prevention, offering you advice for healthy living and providing important screenings designed to identify complications and illnesses during their earliest stages. From adolescence to adulthood, a man’s health demands care and attention at all stages of life.
Frequently Asked Questions
I consider myself healthy. Should I be seeing a men’s health doctor?
Yes. If you are healthy and symptom-free, your doctor can help keep you that way with periodic screenings, immunizations, and advice for healthy living. Although The Testosterone Replacement Clinic is a virtual telehealth clinic, Dr. Whelan will make sure that you are receiving the proper advice on regular screenings, immunizations, and other general health advice that you will be able to follow up on with your Primary Care Doctor. Keep in mind that sometimes underlying health problems present no symptoms at all; so it is important to see your practitioner each year for a routine wellness exam.
What should I expect during a visit to a men’s health doctor?
The components of your visit will vary according to your age. Dr. Whelan will also speak with you about your health concerns and the risk for certain diseases, even those that are not exclusive to men. In addition to that, The Testosterone Replacement Clinic offers other services for men like non-surgical hair loss treatment or opimization of regrowth after hair transplantation.
Will I need to follow any special instructions between visits?
Possibly. Every man is unique, so only your doctor can tell you whether you need to make changes to your lifestyle or eating habits following your appointment. As a member, you will have access to BodySite, which provides programs for improving all aspects of your health including weight management, nutrition, exercise, sleep and mental health.
