Why men should regularly visit the doctor.
by The Iowa Clinic on Monday, March 27, 2017
1. Prostate / Colon Health / ED
There are some health topics your wife or mom can’t be an expert on. It’s important to establish a relationship with a primary care provider so you have a resource you’re able to talk with about men’s health.
2. Annual Physical
A yearly physical exam is extremely important to your overall health. Everyone should see their provider at least annually for a complete physical – look at this as a full-service oil change and tune up for your body.
Depression is real and something many people struggle with. Too often people (especially men) ignore depression symptoms and their health and quality of life suffer. Your primary care provider can help you cope.
4. Aches / Pains / Arthritis
Your primary care provider can help with every day aches and pains, as well as more serious problems such as arthritis. If you’re a weekend warrior who wants to stay in the game, your physician can help you not miss a beat.
5. Heart Health
Real men have a big heart, and it’s important to make sure yours is working like it should. Your doctor can check you out and refer you to the proper specialist if needed.
