What to Expect When Visiting a Sexual Health Clinic

Waiting room

On the January 20th episode of Behind the Curve, Dr. Brian Christine was joined by Head Nurse Laura Anderson to discuss the anticipation and anxiety facing new sexual health patients. Regardless of whether incoming patients are seeking treatment for erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s disease, or other symptoms, it can often present difficulty for patients to discuss the intimate details of how they’re being affected.

To that end, both Christine and Anderson stress the need for strong communication and a sense of empathy. In making sure patients are made to feel welcome, listened to, and comfortable, it’s easier to be able to effectively diagnose sexual dysfunctions and come up with a course of treatment that will yield the best results for the patient, their partner, and their overall lifestyle.
