Men's Health

Routine health care for men includes health screenings appropriate for your stage in life.

  • Young men should be seen by a physician every 18 to 24 months.
  • By the time a man is 40, he should see a doctor every year for a general physical exam and to be screened for blood pressure problems, diabetes and cholesterol problems.
  • Men in their 50s should see a doctor for information about preventable diseases and screenings for colon cancer and prostate cancer.

Using multidisciplinary teams as a base for your care, we offer you comprehensive care for all your health concerns. Our teams include physicians, advanced registered nurse practitioners, nurses, physical therapists and nutritionists. Our care also includes access to advanced medical and technical expertise if necessary.

Men's Health Assessment

Take the Assessment

The UI Health Care Men's Health Clinic invites you to take two to three minutes to complete a men’s health questionnaire. This set of questions was developed by the University of Iowa for personal use. You won't be asked to identify yourself, and only you will see the results. The University of Iowa will not have access to your results or have any way of knowing how you responded to the questions.

Our men's health questionnaire will guide you through 20 general questions that address your weight, heart health, mental health, sleep health, and urological health.

Results from this assessment can be shared with your own physician, along with any health concerns you may have. Feedback from this wellness assessment is not meant to replace your own physician’s advice.

Are you looking for a primary care physician? Call for an appointment with our Men's Health Clinic located at UI Health Care – Iowa River Landing at 319-467-2000.
