The average man’s life expectancy is five years shorter than the average woman’s. In part, this is because men are less likely to seek medical care and more likely to find a reason not to attend an annual checkup.

It’s acknowledged within the medical community that men are less likely than women to monitor their health and seek treatment when they’re ill. They’re also more likely to drink heavily, smoke, and make other unhealthy life choices.
Men’s health care focuses on men’s needs, including diseases and illnesses that affect them only or that they’re most at risk of developing.
Dr. Jensen’s telehealth service means it’s never been easier to receive medical care whenever you need it.
As men move through life, they go through several lifestyle changes. As they do, their risk of developing health issues increases. Here are some of the typical health concerns that a man can experience throughout his lifetime.
Among the most significant health challenges men face in their 20s is that they neglect their well-being. Drinking too much alcohol, eating unhealthy foods, not exercising, and not scheduling regular physical exams can lead to undiagnosed health problems.
A common cause of illness in men in their 30s and 40s is stress. It contributes to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes. Having regular physical exams helps Dr. Jensen to catch these often symptomless health problems early when they’re easier to treat.
Once you reach your 50s, you’re more at risk of developing colon cancer and prostate cancer, so a men’s health exam checks for both. Heart disease is also more common at this age, and sexual function diminishes. Dr. Jensen works with you to reduce reliance on medication and to restore your quality of life.
Dr. Jensen’s concierge medical care allows him to treat you at each life stage, making it easier for him to offer you informed health choices as you get older.
A men's health exam comes under the umbrella of preventive care. It’s a regular health check designed to examine a man’s physical and mental well-being. It includes a physical exam, a visual inspection, and any necessary screenings.
Men under 50 should schedule an exam every 3-5 years, while men over 50 should aim for every year.
When you partner with Dr. Jensen for your men’s health care, you get comprehensive care that treats illness and disease and, most importantly, works to prevent it in the first place.
