Erectile Dysfunction Help Center

The science and practice of urology has made remarkable advances in the last decade. As awareness of common issues like erectile dysfunction (ED) increases, more treatment options have become available to meet the need of men of all ages seeking help with erectile dysfunction.

Typically, Erectile Dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is defined as man’s inability to achieve an erection firm enough to have sex, or to maintain an erection long enough to finish having sex. The term Erectile Dysfunction may also further cover a range of disorders, including curvature of the penis upon erection (Peyronie’s disease), prolonged painful erections not associated with sexual desire (Priapism), and premature ejaculation.

Seeking help for Erectile Dysfunction?

Before you begin seeking help for erectile dysfunction, you should educate yourself on its signs and symptoms as well as on how the male sex organ works. By keeping track of your signs and symptoms, in addition to filling out our ED questionnaire, it can help us, or any other physician, diagnose and treat your erection problems.

You can find the erectile dysfunction questionnaire here (The SHIM Test)!
