Men's Health Care Overview
Our board-certified medical physicians and certified physician assistants provide top-notch male health care at Family Medicine Associates of Texas, in Carrollton. Our family practice understands that men have different health needs and concerns from women. Therefore, we provide specific services that are unique to male patients. Typically, male patients are less likely to undergo preventative care then women. Ignoring a symptom or believing it will go away on its own is not a healthy practice. A medical concern should not be compartmentalized to the "it's no big deal" category. Through yearly check-ups and routine screenings, our practice can provide you with medical data of your current health. This will help you to understand your level of wellness and areas that may require more attention or care. Our practice is here to serve you.
"This office is a large practice that is a well oiled machine. Staff is always friendly, on point, knows their job, and....cares. Providers are top notch. Location is very convenient if you're in the northern burbs. Next to Baylor Regional Health. I agonized about switching my doctor from downtown, but, I've lived in the burbs for 25 years, and while the folks downtown took good care of me, these folks are just a 10 minute drive from where I live. I would recommend this practice to any of my personal or business associates."- C.G. / Google / Jul 10, 2020
"Dr Hischke has a great bedside manner, and clearly let's you know what's going on without talking down to you."- D.G. / Google / Nov 27, 2019
"My wife and I moved to this practice, as patients of Dr. Jeffrey Stewart, back in 2016. I was sick and my internist’s staff in Dallas told me to go to a ’doc-in-the-box’ or wait 3 days. Couldn’t do that, and it happened twice in a period of 2 months during flu season, so we decided to change doctors. Looking through our plan, we found this practice not far from us.We also found that Family Medicine Associates could see me that day and I was assigned to Dr. Stewart. Later we discovered they have Saturday office hours and at various times both my wife and I have been there on a Saturday if we were ill and didn’t want to go to the urgent care center or wait until Monday.A couple years ago Dr. Stewart began treating my wife’s high blood sugar and at a certain point her case became more complex so he referred us to an endocrinologist. This was a life-changing moment that probably saved my wife’s life. I’ve just been referred to a urologist for an issue that requires a higher level of specialty, the outcome of which is uncertain at this point.What you should take away from this is that it is comforting to have a physician who knows when it’s time to call in a specialist. Doctors don’t know everything about everything, if they are the right kind of person to know their own limitations and we respect this in Dr. Stewart. He has not steered us wrong yet and we have no reason to expect he would.I’d rather go to him knowing that if he feels we should dig deeper he will send us out to a professional colleague whom he knows for a higher level of care if it’s needed. It’s about what each type of physician is trained for.And for physicals, I have my annual physical every year, in 2 parts, with Dr. Stewart. This is not this medical practice’s policy, it’s standard procedure for a complete physical. Get your blood and urine work done first, and return a 2nd time to review the results and develop a plan of action. We are fortunate to have very good health care coverage and it covers the 2-part physical 100%. A lot of this depends on your coverage, so know your policy’s parameters before you go somewhere and think you are being taken advantage of.We’ve never had issue with the office staff, either, nor any billing issues. Don’t rely on others to know your coverage. Learn what is covered and for how much and pay attention, ask questions, and always review your EOBs. Especially in this tough time, this practice is well-organized to handle your needs in person or remotely and they seem to be a group of caring professionals who have just one interest - your well-being."- D.B. / Yelp / Jul 07, 2020
"Telemedicine appointment with Marla was extremely efficient and effective. Glad they are embracing telemedicine."- B.H. / Google / Jun 26, 2020
"We recently moved to the DFW area from out of state and found Dr Hamilton's practice through word of mouth. Everybody we have dealt with at his practice has been very nice and helpful and the doctors are excellent."- T.B. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
Men's Health Care Services
We care for the health needs and concerns of men from adolescence to adulthood. However, we recognize as men get older, their bodies begin to change. Undergoing wellness screenings, erectile dysfunction exams, and testosterone therapy assessments are essential to keeping you healthy and vigorous. Our family medical practice is proud to offer the following services for our male patients:
Prostate Cancer Screening
Prostate cancer is cancer of the prostate, which is a small male reproductive gland that produces and transports semen. A PSA test measures the levels of prostate-specific antigen in the prostate, which is a protein produced specifically by this gland. If the levels are abnormal, then it is an indication of prostate cancer. However, this screening may be done in conjunction with other testing as well to accurately confirm a diagnosis.
Erectile dysfunction is when a male cannot obtain, or hold an erection that is firm enough for sexual intercourse. This condition is very common in men over the age of 60. The cause of this condition is usually due to old age, however, other physical or emotional conditions can contribute as well. Once your doctor has performed a thorough examination, treatment options will be presented.
Just as women go through a transitional period of menopause, men go through andropause. This is the decline of testosterone levels and sex drive in men. However, thanks to modern medicine, testosterone therapy is a treatment that can boost testosterone levels. This treatment can improve low libido, erectile dysfunction, and build muscle mass as well.
