Men's Health Q&A


What does a men’s health appointment include?

At Evolve Healthcare, a men’s health appointment includes health and wellness evaluation, treatment of ongoing health issues, and screening for disease and illness. 

Your Evolve Healthcare doctor may check the following things during your visit.

  • Blood pressure
  • Cholesterol
  • Blood sugar
  • Weight and body mass index (BMI)
  • Hormone levels

Because Evolve Healthcare focuses on whole-body health, your doctor also asks about your mental health, sexual health, diet, health goals, and more. You can discuss any personal concerns or questions you may have, and your physician can give you customized advice.


How does hormone imbalance affect men?

Many men are surprised to learn that hormone imbalance, like testosterone depletion, can cause a wide range of problems, including:

  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Mood swings
  • Insomnia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Muscle loss
  • Poor concentration

Men start losing testosterone at around age 30, and that’s often when symptoms gradually begin appearing. If you have other health problems, like diabetes or high blood pressure, symptoms are likely to be even more severe. 

A men’s health program at Evolve Healthcare can help restore your body-wide wellness and maximize your health. 


How can hormone replacement therapy help me?

Evolve Healthcare uses bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to restore your testosterone levels to the optimal level. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy includes only natural substances that are chemical duplicates of your natural hormones. 

With this exact hormone matching, you’ll soon attain the ideal natural hormone levels and reverse the effects of hormone depletion. Many men find that testosterone replacement therapy helps them feel and look like a younger version of themselves. 


How often should I schedule men’s health appointments?

It can vary by patient and personal needs. If you’re in peak health, you’ll likely need to see the doctor less often. If you delay or skip medical care for months or years, you’ll likely end up with health problems requiring a lot of doctor appointments. 

At Evolve Healthcare, the experienced team recommends a men’s health care plan just for you. They assess your whole-body health, medical history, personal health goals, and other factors specific to you to recommend the ideal appointment frequency.
