Customer Question
I am 79 years...

I am 79 years old now. About six months ago, I started to get up frequently at night ( about 3 or 4 times ). Also, about six months ago sex drive was and still is there but the erection process has slowed to about once a month.

Doctor's Assistant: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?

Good...blood pressure pills for over twenty years and pressure under control.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Four stints were put in a year ago.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
