Searching for a doctor in the Dallas suburb of Frisco, TX to treat erectile dysfunction? Choose an authority on men’s sexual health
No other male sexual concern is more common than erectile dysfunction. The American Academy of Family Physicians reports, in his lifetime, one of every three men will encounter ED. Because there is no “first-line” diagnostic test for ED, it’s critical to find a doctor for erectile dysfunction in Frisco, TX that has the expertise and takes the time to fully understand your symptoms, medical history, lifestyle, and other factors that play a role in the development of this condition. Dr. Jeffrey Buch is sought after by peers and patients alike, as an authority in male reproductive and sexual health. The good news is that he is conveniently located right here in the DFW metroplex. We encourage you to call Low T Guru at (972) 430-4554 today to schedule your comprehensive evaluation with Dr. Buch. Accurate diagnostics lead to effective and efficient management of distressing symptoms that can negatively affect your confidence, relationship, and quality of life.
ED, by classification
As with other conditions, erectile dysfunction can present in several ways. So, ED is classified as “mild,” “mild to moderate,” “moderate,” and “severe.” Dr. Buch may recommend treatment based on the severity of your symptoms, and he has seen how patients with varying degrees of ED have responded to specific types of treatments. The severity of ED is determined by responses to the following questions:
- “What is your level of confidence with getting and keeping erections?”
- “When you’ve experienced erections, how often are they hard enough for successful penetration?”
- “After you’ve entered your partner, how frequently have you been able to maintain erections to completion?”
- “How would you rate the level of difficulty in maintaining erections to completion (of sex)?”
- “How would you rate the level of satisfaction you typically get from sex?”
Each question has three different responses to choose from, and each response is assigned a different number. Those numbers add up to the final score, with “17 to 21” indicative of “mild” ED, and “5 to 7” indicative of “severe” ED.
Treatment, by severity
“First-line” therapies for ED generally include addressing lifestyle changes, such as obesity and smoking, which greatly increase your risk of ED. As well, antidepressants and other medications may be prescribed to treat erectile dysfunction, including ED associated with diabetes, or traumatic injuries. Since Dr. Buch began offering the GAINSWave® system in January 2018, around three of every four patients have been pleased with the results. Men with milder cases and shorter histories of ED have responded fastest to this treatment that uses low-intensity sound waves to improve circulation, resulting in firmer erections; however, Dr. Buch has also had great success among patients with long histories of severe ED, including diabetics.
