Advanced Testing for ED

Any doctor can prescribe Viagra or Cialis. In fact, you could probably find an unscrupulous pharmacy that will give you Viagra without a prescription. If this works to treat ED, then great. But ED is often a sign of underlying cardiovascular disease. Penile blood testing, which we do in office, can detect penile blood flow problems non-invasively and efficiently.
This is important because decreased blood flow in the penis is associated with decreased blood flow in the heart and other organs. Also, men with erectile dysfunction are at increased risk of coronary artery disease and heart attack.
So before you just turn to a pill to solve the problem, know that ED can be a sign of serious medical problems.
