How do I know if I am a candidate?
Because of the non-invasive nature of the treatment, most men are candidates. The first step is to set up an evaluation with our Physician. He will evaluate your current medical condition and will test your current blood flow to create a treatment plan specific to you.
What is the treatment like? Is it painful?
The treatment consists of a series of six to twelve 20-minute sessions in our office over the course of a few weeks. Unlike acoustic wave therapy, which is often touted as "nearly painless" the treatment is not painful whatsoever. You can return immediately to your normal routine as there are no side-effects nor recovery time.
How quickly can I return to my regular activities after treatment?
Immediately after treatment. There is no recuperation or down time required. You can return immediately to your normal routine. In fact, because the treatment sessions are relatively quick we have patients that come on their lunch break and return immediately to work.
How will you ensure my privacy?
Is this covered by insurance or Medicare?
Our treatments are considered an elective procedure, therefore, we do not bill through insurance nor accept care cards. We can provide the paperwork to submit to your insurance company to see if they will reimburse treatment cost, but our experience is that they generally do not. We do however accept HSA and FSA cards.
What if I have Diabetes?
We have many diabetic patients and we have seen great success in treatment. Diabetes does not disqualify you from our treatments. The best thing you can do is schedule an evaluation with our physician to discuss your specific medical history and the success you can expect from our Linear Piezo Energy Protocol treatments.
What if I have had a prostatectomy or prostate cancer?
A prostatectomy and prostate cancer can be causes for ED. We have helped many patients that have had a prostatectomy or suffered from prostate cancer. Speaking with our providers will help you understand what specific treatments will be effective for you.
Does this treat Peyronie's Disease?
Our treatments help with peyronies by repairing soft tissue. This helps reduce discomfort and can help reshape. We are confident that we can help. Because cases vary so widely the best thing to do is schedule an appointment with one of our providers and they can help you understand what treatments will be necessary to address your specific case of peyronies.
What is the out-of-pocket cost for treatment?
Are payment plans available?
Why do I have to pre-pay for my initial evaluation?
Our physicians only meet with new patients two days per week and therefore can only see a limited number of new patients. We ask that you prepay in order to reserve your spot with the physician. The fee is included in the price of the treatment and covers the cost of the initial evaluation. Your fee will be refunded if the physician determines that you are not eligible for treatment.
What does my payment get me at my initial evaluation?
Your initial evaluation will include a blood flow ultrasound to determine your level of sexual performance decline related to blood flow. You will also meet with our provider who will, according to your test results and medical history, prescribe a personalized treatment plan based on your individual situation. If you choose to move forward with your treatment plan, you can have your first treatment session on the same day. If the doctor determines you are not eligible for our treatment, your fee will be refunded.
Does my evaluation fee go towards treatments?
Yes and no. The fee is a part of the cost of the treatment but the dollar figure associated with your treatment plan will be in addition to that fee. You will not have the cost of your evaluation deducted from the cost of treatments. This cost will include your treatments and follow-up doctor visits to continue to evaulate your progress.
