Many men in the United States live lifestyles that are not good for their overall health. This is why men have higher rates of heart disease, high blood pressure, lung cancer, stroke and other serious medical conditions. ¥’s men’s health services provide preventative care, diagnosis and treatment for conditions that frequently affect men. The physicians here work primarily with men and are highly experienced helping patients find solutions to common health problems men face.

The importance of preventative care

Keeping up with your health is very important. In fact, many life-threatening conditions men often encounter can be prevented with regular check-ups and healthy lifestyle choices. Our men’s health team can help you learn more about your risk factors for various conditions and take the precautions necessary to stop them before they start.

Conditions that can be prevented with proper care include:

  • Diabetes
  • Various cancers
  • High blood pressure
  • Problems with urination
  • Heart attacks and stroke
  • Influenza and pneumonia
  • Kidney disease
  • Dementia

It is important to note that not all conditions, even those listed above, can be prevented even with a healthy lifestyle. However, working with your doctor to keep your health in a good place can have a significant impact on your risk developing a wide range of diseases and other medical conditions.
