Focused Exclusively On The Health Needs Of Men
From early childhood on, males are encouraged to "take it like a man" when it
comes to pain, illness or injury. As a result, men make 150 million fewer trips
per year to see a doctor than women, and one-third of American men have not had
a check-up in the past year. This lack of attention to health, wellness and
prevention puts men at greater risk for several of the top health threats in the
United States today—including heart disease, strokes, cancer, accidents and
stress-related illnesses. Is it any wonder then that men typically live seven to
ten years less than women?
At the Men's Health Center, we're working to turn these statistics
around and help men live longer, happier and healthier lives. Our approach is
centered on building strong, trusting relationships with our patients, so that
they will be more comfortable in discussing and working to address health
concerns before they become more serious problems.
