Men's Health Q&A
What is men’s health?
Men have unique needs when it comes to their healthcare. They are more likely to skip doctor appointments or put off routine wellness checks, which can make it more challenging for them to stay healthy. Men may also be more likely to make risky choices that can impact their well-being.
Fortunately, many of the diseases that affect men are preventable through healthy lifestyle choices and regular doctor visits. Dr. Farooq offers a full range of men’s health services that include diagnostic tests, annual physicals, age-specific screening exams, and customized care for acute and chronic conditions.
Dr. Farooq also provides testosterone checks, prostate exams, and treatment for andropause (often referred to as male menopause).
