Men's Health Q&A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health is a medical specialty focused on specific health issues that affect men, including prostate health and low testosterone. The Rios Healthcare Associates team specializes in men’s health and offers focused physical exams that address your unique health needs. 

Do I need an annual wellness exam?

Yes, you need an annual wellness exam. Though men are more likely to put off their regular checkups, the annual exam is essential for preventing future health problems.

Your annual wellness exam also gives you and your provider at Rios Healthcare Associates an opportunity to get to know each other and develop a more trusting patient-doctor relationship. 

The more you trust your provider, the more likely you are to share your health concerns, leading to better medical care and health. 

What can I expect during a men’s health exam?

You can expect a comprehensive evaluation during your men’s health exam. The team tailors your physical exam based on age, risk factors, and medical needs.

During your exam, your provider asks about your health concerns and reviews your medical and family history and lifestyle habits, such as your diet and exercise routine. They then perform a physical exam. 

Lab work may also be requested to screen for health issues. Rios Healthcare Associates offers in-house lab services and performs many tests at the office, so you don’t have to go to another facility to complete your exam. 

After your exam, your provider offers specific recommendations to prevent disease and maintain or improve your health, such as updating your immunizations, modifying your diet, or introducing an exercise program.

What are common men’s health issues?

In addition to managing your overall health and wellness, the Rios Healthcare Associates team also cares for men's health issues. Common men’s health issues include:

  • Prostate issues, such as an enlarged prostate
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Testing for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Heart disease
  • Colon cancer

Rios Healthcare Associates also offers a chronic care management program to help you gain better control over your chronic health condition, such as diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure.
