What inspired you to work in sexual medicine?

What I love about sex medicine is that you get to focus on improving people's quality of life. Most of medicine revolves around this idea of preventing people from dying or preventing them from getting sick but with what we do in sexual medicine we are really focusing on improving quality of life. The way I look at it is easy - if someone can make you live for another 20 years but you can’t enjoy yourself sexually the way you want and you can’t be your best self - how good are those 20 years really going to be for you?

What is the most rewarding aspect of your career?

I love highlighting to my patients that sexual health is health. Sexual problems may be a warning sign or result of some other health issues like diabetes, infections, heart problems, depression, anxiety - you name it! I enjoy relating other health issues to sexual health - often I am the first and only doctor that my male patients may see - they don’t care about their blood pressure they don’t care about their weight - but you bet they care about having sex. If I can show them that better sex can come from taking better care of yourself - I can motivate these guys to improve their health and their sex lives along with it. Pretty fun stuff.

What is something most people don’t know about you? 

I just completed writing my first movie script - nothing medicine related. It is a Hallmark Christmas movie genre film. Here is to hoping I can sell the rights!

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

Create healthy habits for alleviating stress in your life. Medicine is stressful and there are times you will be stressed and overwhelmed. Find something healthy to do. Go to the gym, go for a walk outside, talk with a friend or a partner, read a book - whatever it it takes. If we are to provide the best care for our patients, we need to start by taking the best care of ourselves.

What would your ideal vacation be?

I love to travel the world and explore new cultures while eating great food, but sometimes there's just nothing better than laying on a beautiful beach with a good book and a drink in the other hand.
