Men’s health is an area of medicine that focuses on the unique health needs of men. Though men and women deal with many of the same health problems, these problems may cause different symptoms in men.
Additionally, men have their own health risks related to their reproductive organs.
Dr. Pandya and the teams at Floral Park Medical, P.C., and Cross Island Medical understand the unique health needs of men and provide care to improve men’s health and prevent future disease.
Many conditions affect men’s health, some more serious than others. Common medical issues men face include:

Men 30 and older should come in for a physical exam every year.
No matter your age, if you're overweight, have a chronic health condition, or are at risk of developing a chronic health condition, Dr. Pandya may recommend you come in at least once a year or more often for checkups and health screenings.
