That’s why it’s so important to have regular men’s health checkups with an experienced care provider like nurse practitioner Robert Martin, APN at Campbell Station Primary Care and Aesthetics in Knoxville, Tennessee. Robert does heart health and prostate disease screenings, other preventive care, and also treats issues like urinary dysfunction, erectile dysfunction, and low sex drive.

Men are vulnerable to some potentially serious health issues, and it’s very important to be aware of them. The most common health danger for men today is heart disease. Although heart disease can potentially be fatal without treatment, it’s also very preventable in most cases.
Another major health problem for men is prostate disease. However, as with heart disease, it’s often preventable and is also very treatable. During your men’s wellness exams at Campbell Station Primary Care and Aesthetics, nurse practitioner Robert will evaluate all aspects of your health including all of these areas.
If you’re at risk for heart disease due to your age, ethnicity, or family history, Robert can create an effective prevention plan for you. Heart disease prevention often includes weight loss, regular exercise, and hypertension treatment.
If you’re at risk for prostate disease, Robert may recommend losing weight, starting regular exercise, and switching to a low fat diet that’s rich in fresh fruits and veggies.
These simple changes can potentially help you avoid prostate issues like erectile dysfunction, urinary dysfunction, and low sex drive. Doing everything possible to maintain a healthy prostate now may even help you avoid prostate cancer later.
Prostate disease is one cause of problems like erectile dysfunction and low sex drive, but it’s not the only one. As you age, your testosterone level decreases naturally and this may lead to sexual health issues along with other problems like muscle loss, fatigue, and more. Sometimes, you may need testosterone replacement if your levels are low and you’re healthy otherwise.
Generally, healthy men need to see Robert at least once a year for a wellness exam. During your men’s health exam, Robert evaluates your whole-body health, and you’ll discuss your risk factors for common men’s health problems like heart and prostate disease.
Robert makes preventive care recommendations and checks on how your current preventive care measures are working. If you need treatment for a condition like hypertension, diabetes, or asthma, Robert can discuss your treatment plan and prescribe any medications you need during your men’s health exam.
