We at Bay Street Medical have developed a variety of health services for men, all with one goal in mind: To help men to change the attitudes and behaviours that damage men’s health.
Did you know?
Australian men are more likely to get sick from serious health problems than Australian women.
Compared to women, men generally visit the doctor less frequently, have shorter visits, and only attend when their illness is in its later stages.
Men generally live much shorter lives than women.
Men typically experience decreased longevity and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, chronic lung disease, and suicide than women, yet they are less likely to seek help from their doctors.
Take the first step and visit your doctor
Don’t wait to visit the doctor until something is seriously wrong. Prevention is better than cure.
A doctor’s recommendations can help you if you have health issues, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure or diabetes. Also, be sure to ask your doctor about when you should have cancer assessment and other health evaluations.
