What Should I Expect from My Consultation with The Doctor?
Erectile dysfunction is a multi-factorial disease and in most cases it is a symptom of another disturbance. Every patient treated in our clinic will undergo our extensive diagnostic treatment protocol consisting of the following steps:
During the initial consultation the patient answers a set of questionnaires that will assist the doctor to benchmark the severity of ED and also identify any suspected underlying health issues.
After that, the doctor will obtain a detailed medical, personal and sexual history and proceed with an extensive general and genital physical examination.
Based on the above, your doctor will decide whether and what type of further investigations are required including blood tests, artificial erection test and imaging – typically these can be carried out on the same day of the initial consultation.
An integral part of this initial consultation is a discussion with you regarding specific risk factors based on your history and the different treatment options available for your individual situation. For the majority of patients, an initial treatment plan will be recommended during this initial consultation.
Follow up consultations
Within 2 weeks of your initial consultation, a follow up will be scheduled to discuss and adjust your recommended treatment plan based on your tests results and any response to treatment at this point. This consultation can be conducted remotely, either over the phone or through a video-conferencing platform. After this, further quarterly (or as appropriate) consultations can be scheduled to evaluate the outcome of your specific treatment.
I am suffering from erectile dysfunction, what should I do next?
We advise you to book a consultation with one of our highly experienced doctors. The first step towards successful treatment is an accurate diagnosis of potential causes by our specialists.
After this, our doctors will seek to do two things:
- design a treatment plan that will allow you immediately to achieve a strong erection to continue normal sexual activities
- design a treatment plan to address the underlying causes of your erectile dysfunction. This means that each treatment we offer in our clinic is highly personalised.
While our doctor’s experience from over 30,000 erectile dysfunction patients allows us to create detailed treatment plans, a majority of doctors limit treatment options to medication, often leaving the underlying causes untreated. This can lead to a life-long dependence on drugs and in many cases, long term, unsuccessful treatment and your dissatisfaction.
