Do I need to see a doctor if I’m young and healthy?

Men of all ages can face health challenges, so it’s important to establish a relationship with a physician who can help track your health, note any changes, and keep you feeling your best. Regular health screenings, such as blood pressure checks and screening for testicular cancer, are also important even when you’re young, as early detection typically improves outcomes.

What can I expect when I come in for an appointment?

Dr. Temkin takes a direct and honest approach to building rapport with his patients. He takes the time to talk with each male patient about his health history, current health concerns, and his lifestyle. In addition to addressing any existing health issues, he helps patients understand how to prevent disease, establish a healthy lifestyle, and feel their best.

What screenings will I need?

During your annual physical with Dr. Temkin, you may receive a screening for prostate and testicular health that will include a digital rectal exam. Additionally, Dr. Temkin can screen for colon cancer, monitor blood pressure, and order blood tests to measure cholesterol levels (a risk factor for heart disease) and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and testosterone levels. Low testosterone levels may lead to erectile dysfunction, low sex drive, and mood swings, and Dr. Temkin can help balance testosterone in your body for greater overall health.

Even if it’s been a couple years since you last saw a doctor, now is a great time to establish a relationship with a primary care physician like Dr. Temkin.
