According to Dr. Friedman, “Men are often embarrassed to discuss their sexual health, but it is a common topic when speaking to a urologist. It is estimated that over 30 million males in the United States has some form of erectile dysfunction.  The causes of ED can be variable, but the most common is a vascular condition or hormonal or neurogenic.” He continued to add that other common conditions, such as diabetes, high cholesterol, and hypotension are also risk factors for erectile dysfunction.


Saint Clare’s Health NEW online series, “Let’s Talk Health,” provides the community with accurate, trusted information featuring expert physicians discussing topics, such as COVID-19 and Transmission; Vaccine Safety and Delivery; Post COVID Recovery for Lungs and Heart; Pregnancy and Family Planning During COVID; Obesity and is relationship to COVID, and the vaccine’s effectiveness, and more.


 Dr. Friedman stated, “Depending on the causes, there are many therapy options for erectile dysfunction,” Dr. Friedman discusses in detail each therapy and their risk/benefits, and those that were the most commonly known such as oral agents, and those therapies that are men most often preferred. He added, “We see patients in their 20s up to the age of patients in their nineties. There is no specific age that men seek treatment. If the problem is beginning to affect your sexual life or cause anxiety, you may be time to consider visiting your urologist.”


According to Brian Finestein, “This unique series provides relevant information on COVID and important health issues, as well as healthcare resources. We wanted to offer both current information, as well as where people can get the help they need. Most importantly, members of the community can submit questions to be answered by a physician.”


Finestein continues, “Saint Clare’s Let’s Talk Health, also in a newsletter format, provides timely information and vital resources. For example, too often people are afraid to come to the Emergency Department when experiencing COVID symptoms. Saint Clare’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) will come to your home for FREE, and access your condition through a series of tests. If you need to come to the Emergency Department, we will transport you.  If not, you can be assured that you are taking the precautionary steps for your health. That is the type of valuable resources we are providing to the community.”
