Telemedicine Consultation on Erectile Dysfuntion
Erectile dysfunction occurs when a man can no longer get or maintain an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Having erection trouble periodically is not necessarily a concern, but ongoing problems must be medically reviewed. Patient failure to talk to a doctor about erectile dysfunction can lead to anxiety, relationship problems and eventually depression. Understanding that this topic is exceptionally difficult to deal with at a local medical clinic, MD247 has made its telemedicine “talk to a doctor” hotline available to telemedicine program members nationwide to discuss erectile dysfunction.
This will help you understand how to talk to your doctor, what questions to ask, and what information to give.
Diagnosing your own erectile dysfunction, or self-prescribing medication for the same problem is very dangerous but quite frequently how many men avoid an embarrassing visit to the doctor. If you think you have erectile dysfunction, it is better to talk to a doctor, as there could be underlying health problems causing the erectile dysfunction. There may be diabetes which is not being well managed, or blood pressure issues which are not reacting well to a specific course of medication and treatment. The layman is not properly educated to handle and diagnose that both prescribed and over the counter medications could be the cause of erectile dysfunction. Doctors, like the telemedicine specialists at MD247 do have the skills and knowledge required to help patients make the appropriate changes to resolve the problem. With that in mind, always do the following when you start to talk to a doctor about erectile dysfunction;
- Provide your doctor with as much information as possible.
- When you first noticed the effects medicines you take have on your sex drive.
If you are not satisfied with the information that your doctor gives during your telemedicine conference, or you felt it was rushed and uncomfortable, it is alright to contact MD247 and discuss your desire to speak to another telemedicine specialist.
MD247 wants our telemedicine program members comfortable.
