Men's Health Q & A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health involves prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment of specific health issues common among men, such as:

  • Low testosterone
  • Prostate, testicular, and colorectal cancers
  • Depression
  • Low muscle mass
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Impotence
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes

Annual checkups detect these and other health conditions before serious problems arise, which is why regular men’s health exams are so important.

What should I expect during a men’s health exam?

When you arrive at your men’s health exam, Dr. Salib or another board-certified professional goes over your medical history. He then conducts a thorough medical examination and orders lab or other diagnostic tests to detect possible health problems. He answers any questions or concerns you may have about your health.

At your wellness check, you may be screened for:

  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • STDs
  • Overweight and obesity
  • High blood sugar
  • Certain cancers
  • Skin cancer
  • Depression

The treatment you’ll receive, if any, depends on how healthy you are. Dr. Salib may recommend medications or lifestyle changes to counteract overweight, obesity, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol to prevent heart disease.

He may recommend testosterone therapy for low testosterone or erectile dysfunction, and stretching and strengthening exercises for injuries or chronic pain. If you have symptoms of a serious health problem, he may refer you to a specialist.

What is a DOT and sports physical?

Department of Transportation (DOT) exams and sports physicals are similar to traditional men’s health exams. Dr. Salib makes sure you’re healthy enough to perform work functions or participate in sports. For a DOT physical you’ll need:

  • Your driver’s license
  • A $99 payment
  • A list of medications you’re taking
  • Your application

Dr. Salib signs off on the appropriate paperwork to complete requirements for sports and DOT physicals.

How often should I schedule a men’s health exam?

The number of times you should come in for a men’s health exam depends on the condition of your health and whether you have specific issues you’re concerned about. Dr. Salib lets you know how often to come in for regular checkups, but it’s often annually if you’re in good health.
