Men's Health Management

Dr Christopher Love has a particular interest in Men's Health and can help with a number of issues specific to men.

Men's Health

Many men feel uncomfortable talking to someone about their health or going to the doctor for regular checkups. Although this is improving, there is still much more that needs to be done to improve the level of health in Australian men.

Men are actually more prone to some illnesses due to genetic factors as well as lifestyle choices such as smoking, poor diet and obesity, risk-taking behaviours, long-working hours, and being more reluctant to talk about their health problems. Unfortunately this contributes to a greater rate of some cancers, cardiac disease, stroke, depression and suicide.

As a urologist dealing with men’s health issues like erection problems, Peyronie’s disease, prostate disease etc., Dr. Love is very interested in dealing with his patient’s health as a whole. He is keen to discuss and investigate these other men’s health issues and where necessary, direct his patients onto other appropriate specialists for help.

Dr Love is approachable, down to earth and easy to talk to. He is open and transparent and committed to the best outcomes for all his patients.
