Men’s Health: Time to Take Charge
If you’re like many men, you don’t pay much attention to your health until something goes wrong. But letting an undiagnosed medical condition go untreated can endanger your best chances for recovery.
Your best strategy is to take charge of your health and schedule an annual checkup with a University Hospitals primary care physician.

Men’s Health Services at UH Cutler Center for Men
Men’s holistic health is also a priority. Thanks to a generous donation from Sandy and Sally Cutler, UH has established the Cutler Center for Men which will redefine men’s well-being and sense of belonging through comprehensive, life-long care and support.
Men have unique health needs. They have higher rates of cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure than women – and are at twice the risk of having a heart attack. And some medical issues in men, such as erectile dysfunction, can actually be a symptom of other health issues such as cardiovascular disease.
For urological conditions that are unique to men, including sexual health, fertility and male urological cancers, your primary care doctor can provide you with immediate access to a UH physician who specializes in urology care for men.
Whatever your age, your UH primary care physician can catch disease early when it’s most treatable, answer your health concerns and refer you to a men’s health specialist for more complex medical issues.
Why You Need to See a Men’s Primary Care Physician – Even When You’re Well
Seeing a primary care doctor once a year – even when you’re feeling healthy – is your best defense against illness and injury.

- Heart Health Assessment
