Why Don’t Men Go to the Doctor?

Move Down to Article

Men are much less likely than women to seek medical attention when they’re not feeling well. The question is: why? Why are men more prone to skipping the screenings and check-ups that could potentially add years to their lives?

During Men’s Health Month in June, host Jonathan Fialkow, M.D. brought together a panel of Baptist Health experts to answer some frequently asked questions about men’s health – from heart and prostate issues to misconceptions about testosterone treatments.

His guests were:
·  Michael Swartzon, M.D., a primary care sports medicine physician at Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute

·  Ahmed Eldefrawy, M.D., a urologic oncologist at Miami Cancer Institute

·  Elliott Elias, M.D., medical director of structural imaging at Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute.
