In order to have a healthy and satisfying sex life, one must consider the importance of communication, learn how to be creative with sex tools, understand what feels good/right, as well as optimize health of genital tissue.

She has made many improvements in my physical well-being and many other aspects of my life beyond what she may not even realize. Thank you Dr. Amy Pearlman!"


"Almost a year has past since my first appointment with Dr Amy Pearlman. On that day there was the tell-tale tap on the examination room door. "Hi Mr. Wallace! My name is Dr Amy Pearlman. How are you today?" That appointment, subsequent appointments and discussion with Dr. Amy changed my attitude towards my health goals forever! I now realize my past choices have had a negative effect on my current health. Some of these issues I know I may be able to turn back the clock on, but the choices and work ahead of me are mine to do. I continue to work and cooperate with Dr Amy on not only my medical issues but also as an advocate for men's sexual health to help raise awareness that you too may be able to turn back that clock.
