For many men, a change in sexual health can be difficult to discuss – whether it’s with your partner or your physician. But it shouldn’t be.
 
These changes are often associated with the natural aging process but also can be related to an under-lying health condition.
 
Erectile dysfunction (ED), for example, can be caused by low testosterone levels, or “low T,” which can affect your ability to have satisfying sex. 
 
While ED and low T are actually different conditions, the connection between the two can be complex or isn’t always understood (some men can have healthy erections even though they have low testos-terone). 
 
Either way, it’s important to remember low T isn’t the only cause of ED. Pre-existing health conditions such as diabetes or heart disease can also play a role as well as psychological factors such as stress, de-pression or anxiety.
 
Whatever the case, it’s important to feel comfortable when talking with your doctor about any chang-es you may be experiencing in your sexual health such as low sex drive or ED.
 
What can be done?
A frank discussion with your physician followed by a physical can help pinpoint any underlying causes. 
For men who have low T, testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) may provide a solution. 
Your doctor may also recommend a medication designed to address erectile dysfunction, such as Viag-ra, Levitra, Cialis or Stendra, though some patients with low T may not respond to these drugs without also undergoing TRT.

Have you ever sat in a doctor’s office waiting room thinking how great it would be if the costs for services were posted up front, where you could review them in advance of your visit?

Now you can.

Like Sunset Primary Care, many practices across the country are moving toward a new, revolutionary model of health care – one that offers cash-only or discounted services for cash up front and doesn’t require insurance.

Sometimes called “Direct Pay” or “Direct Primary Care,” these new cash-only, no-insurance-needed modes of healthcare are quickly becoming the preferred option among patients seeking an affordable option to skyrocketing medical costs.

Ideal for patients without health insurance or those with high deductibles or co-pays, direct pay practices provide a great option for those who only need a family checkup, health and wellness visit or some other service or procedure they’d prefer to pay out of pocket for and not have to deal with the hassles and red tape of insurance.

Or, for those with insurance, it can make greater financial sense to go to a direct pay practice that may only charge a fraction of the cost for a procedure or service that might otherwise cost thousands of dollars for that same procedure through a traditional hospital or medical center by the time a claim is filed.

Smarter Medicine

At Sunset Primary Care, we not only offer affordable primary care with no insurance required, visits start as low as $60. And, what’s more, our prices are posted in our lobby and on our website!
