About Our Program
The Jefferson Men’s Health Program is designed to provide men with a comprehensive and preventive approach to healthcare. Our healthcare services are provided in accordance with the recommendations of the American Urological Association. Patients will be evaluated using a multidisciplinary approach. The initial evaluation will be performed by a urologist with extensive experience in Men’s Health.
Appropriate testing may be ordered based on the patient’s particular needs. Specialties available in addition to Urology include Preventive Cardiology, Sports Medicine, Diabetes Management and Sleep Medicine. After conducting individual evaluations, contributing physicians will create an optimal treatment plan with specific recommendations for each patient.
Additional facilitated consultations are available for ENT, Dermatology, Screening Colonoscopy, Concussion Center, Integrative Medicine, and all other Jefferson specialties.
