Men’s Health Q&A

Why should I have a men’s health exam?

The best way to take charge of your health is with preventive care tailored to men’s health. Doing so can help you live a long, healthy life. 

Optimal Health Miami provides services designed especially for men’s health. These services include:

  • Routine exams
  • Vaccinations
  • Health screenings
  • Prostate cancer screening
  • Health education
  • Weight-loss counseling
  • Testosterone therapy

As a board-certified urologist, Dr. Gittelman also provides specialized care for sexual health problems, such as:

  • Premature ejaculation
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Delayed orgasm
  • Penile curvature

Dr. Gittelman and the team at Optimal Health Miami also address urinary conditions affecting men’s health. This includes feeling an urgent need to urinate or waking up nightly to urinate.

What happens in a men’s health exam?

You can expect Dr. Gittelman to review your health history, take your vital signs, and perform a physical exam. This is an ideal time to discuss any health problems that are troubling you. 

He may recommend blood tests to assess your testosterone levels or look for signs of prostate cancer. Medical guidelines recommend a blood test called a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, which measures the amount of a substance in your blood made by your prostate. An elevated level of PSA can be a sign of prostate cancer.

However, medications and infections also can cause high PSA levels. Dr. Gittelman will thoroughly review your results and recommend follow-up care if necessary. 

As needed, Dr. Gittelman recommends tests with the state-of-the-art equipment available on-site at Optimal Health Miami. If you’re experiencing ED, for example, he may recommend a penile doppler, an ultrasound exam to evaluate blood flow.

What are the treatments for men’s health issues?

Dr. Gittelman and the team at Optimal Health Miami draw on the latest advances in medicine to address your health condition. They craft a customized treatment plan that may include a combination of lifestyle changes, bioidentical testosterone therapy (BHRT), or medical interventions.

With erectile dysfunction, your treatment may begin with medication or testosterone therapy. If these aren’t giving you a significant improvement, Dr. Gittelman may then recommend noninvasive or minimally invasive methods to increase penile blood flow, such as injection therapy or shockwave treatment.

Your comprehensive treatment plan may also include sex therapy or sexual counseling as an option.
