Georgie Kovacs interviewed Dr. Paul Gittens, one of the country’s leading specialists in sexual function for men and women, hormone replacement, male infertility and wellness. He is a board certified urologist, fellowship trained specifically in sexual medicine and male infertility. He is also a clinical associate professor in obstetrics and gynecology and founded the Centers for Sexual Medicine in Philadelphia and New York City.
Georgie: I appreciated hearing how empathetic your approach was at the recent Endo summit. At the ASRM conference last year, I heard data shared about men’s health. The information relayed was that men only go to a doctor if their mother, wife or sister recommend them to go. They have issues that they don’t want to deal with or don’t know how to deal with them.
While I often talk about a lack of awareness around women’s health, there’s a different aspect to look at for men’s health. There’s such a societal pressure for what men could or should be. I believe that impacts what men might seek help for. Given these dynamics, I thought it would be important to hear your wisdom.
