Men’s Health

Each year, men make 150 million less visits to a doctor’s office than women. Unfortunately, this lower number is not because men are healthier than women. The reality is men often do not visit a health care provider when they are sick or have a condition that needs medical attention. Why don’t they go? There could be many reasons such as:

  • Fear of bad news
  • Discomfort being examined
  • Belief that you can “walk it off”
  • Fear of being perceived as weak
  • Lack of doctor patient relationship

Consequently, while some medical issues may resolve themselves without clinical treatment, there is the risk of more severe damage if the condition continues without treatment. A trip to the doctor’s office isn’t necessary every time you sneeze, but if there is ever a doubt about your well-being a trip to Open Arms Healthcare Center is needed.
