Erectile dysfunction (ED), often referred to as impotence, is a common form of male sexual dysfunction in which a man is unable to achieve or maintain a satisfactory erection. As the profusion of ED television and magazine ads attest, treatments abound. Yet while ED can affect up to 30 percent of men, expert physicians who can diagnose and treat it aren’t nearly as prevalent.
Primary-care physicians often lack the interest, time and training to diagnose and treat ED effectively. Urologists, the top specialists in the field of male sexual dysfunction, often neglect ED or choose to focus on other aspects of urology. This void has created opportunities for charlatans and quacks to open so-called “ED clinics” often run by non-urologists who offer expensive, high-risk therapy to anyone who walks through the door.
Obsidian Men’s Health was founded by urologists Shane Geib, M.D. and Marc Richman, M.D. who specialize in male sexual dysfunction. We offer the most comprehensive strategy for solving ED, one that ensures that our clients get the treatment that’s right for them. Many of our competitors peddle only the most lucrative treatments — but one ED cure hardly fits all. The thorough assessment we provide will pinpoint your exact problem and the optimal solution.
HOW IS OBSIDIAN DIFFERENT? WE'RE ALL ABOUT YOU.
A patient-centered, goal-oriented approach is imperative to achieve peak sexual performance in men with ED. Our urologists specialize in male sexual dysfunction and have dedicated their practice to men with ED for over a decade. Many men come to Obsidian after learning that their primary-care physician or urologist simply recommended throwing a blue pill at the problem. Others are frustrated by a slapdash diagnostic process or poor results from a treatment prescribed after just a brief office visit. Some men seek us out after visiting a so-called “ED clinic” and realizing they were dealing with ill-trained physicians pushing a scattershot or overly invasive treatment regimen.
Treating ED successfully requires time and a strong patient-physician relationship — exactly what Obsidian offers. We do a thorough examination to identify risk factors and potential underlying causes of ED; mitigating risk and restoring a man’s sexual function naturally is always the most desirable first course of action. Every patient has his own performance goals, and many treatments are available. As such, we work with our clients to personalize their ED therapy to meet (or exceed) their sexual goals. And because a man’s performance goals may change over time, his therapy might need to be adjusted — a possibility that underscores the importance of an enduring doctor-patient relationship.
