Erectile Dysfunction

rectile dysfunction becomes more common as we age but does not become any easier to talk about. About 5 percent of men that are 40 years old have complete erectile dysfunction, and that number increases to about 15 percent of men at age 70. Mild and moderate erectile dysfunction affects approximately 10 percent of men per decade of life (i.e., 50 percent of men in their 50’s, 60 percent of men in their 60’s). But this problem can happen at any age.

Our Process

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is not an easy problem to admit that you have nor is it a topic that is easy to talk about with your spouse or physician. ED can also be a life altering problem. ED can cause depression symptoms, marital issues, decreased self confidence/low self-esteem and other problems.

​We want to make it easy to discuss your problems and to get a treatment. We offer one-on-one tele-visits with Dr. Ellis. You can meet with him privately anywhere you have an internet connection. After reviewing your medical history and medications he can prescribe appropriate medications to you. He may also request further evaluation be performed by your regular physician.

If we can safely prescribe you a medication we will do so through one of our compound pharmacies. You medication will be shipped to you discretely in 2-4 days.

The consult is free and the price per pill is competitive and may even be covered under your HSA/FSA account if you have one. We also offer topical solutions that can be used to achieve similar results.

Take the time to review the following information, if you feel like you may have ED please contact us to schedule an appointment.
