Finding A Solution

Lab Testing

Our lab testing at Simply Direct Medicine in the Dallas, TX area is the first step in defense and offense for any underlying medical condition you might have. Our lab tests help us identify and diagnose any possible issues or concerns so they can be effectively treated to secure your overall health. We will test your heart, screen for colon cancer, test for any illness during a sick visit, examine your prostate, test for STDs, and administer a sports physical. Our tests cover all the components of a basic health profile, which allows us to evaluate how your organs and systems are functioning. With our lab tests, we can check your Complete Blood Count (CBC), Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP), Cholesterol Panel, Urinalysis, and Prostate-Specific Antigen Test. We would need urine and blood samples from you, and then we will share the results and discuss all your options for potential improvements.

Men's Cardiovascular Health

Heart Health & Testing

Maintaining a healthy heart has a significant impact on your overall health. While certain men may be more susceptible to heart disease due to lifestyle, family history, age, or other factors, adult men should be aware of their cardiovascular health and the decisions they can make to lower their risk. An annual physical exam is advised for men 18 and older. At Simply Direct Medicine in Dallas, TX, we will measure your blood pressure and body mass index (BMI), two indicators of general heart health. Your BMI is measured using your height and weight, so it is essential to maintain a healthy weight. Your blood pressure reading consists of two numbers: systolic blood pressure, which represents how much pressure is exerted against your blood vessels while your heart beats, and diastolic blood pressure, which reflects the pressure exerted against your arterial walls when your heart is at rest between beats. In addition, we will discuss the importance of maintaining an active lifestyle and selecting a nutritious diet, as those are key components of good heart health.

Schedule Your Colonoscopy

Colon Cancer Screening

Our experts want to remind you that it’s likely time for your annual physical. If you are 45 or older, you should get screened for colon and rectal cancer. The American Cancer Society has issued revised screening standards for colon and rectal cancer. The association suggests that persons with an average cancer risk begin screening at age 45 rather than 50. The revised age limitations were issued by the organization in response to a still unexplained increase in colon and rectal cancers among younger people, even teenagers. Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States. If you have a family history of cancer or inflammatory bowel disease, you are at a higher risk and should begin screening and treatment sooner. A colorectal cancer screening consists of various procedures, such as a colonoscopy, in which a small camera is inserted through the entire colon, DNA testing on a stool sample to detect cancer cells, CT scans, and blood tests. For more information, call our office in Dallas, TX.

Overall Men's Health

Wellness Tests

Your immune system goes on the offensive in response to allergens, generating symptoms such as sneezing, nasal congestion, and itchy or watery eyes. Unfortunately, seasonal allergies have no outright cure. There are, however, several effective medical treatments. Both allergy shots and steroid shots are distinct methods. Over the course of several years, allergy injections have been provided as a form of immunotherapy. Each injection contains a trace allergen, and the dosage is gradually increased over the course of the first 3-6 months, and then maintained with fewer injections for 3-5 years. While allergy shots can eventually prevent and reduce allergy symptoms, it may take a year or more to get the desired results. Long-lasting steroid shots can also alleviate the symptoms of seasonal allergies. However, they carry a risk of considerable side effects, especially if taken for an extended period of time. In general, they are the last resort for treating severe allergies, usually utilized only when other treatments have failed.

Men’s Reproductive Health

Prostate Exam

Screening tests are essential because they can detect diseases in their earliest and most treatable stages, which can save your life. Our experts at Simply Direct Medicine in Dallas, TX have recommended testing for various conditions, including prostate health. Many men are unaware of the health risks linked with the prostate, but early detection can be life-saving. Beginning between the ages of 40 and 45, you should consult your doctor about obtaining a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test and digital rectal exam (DRE) annually. Consult with your doctor about which exams apply to you based on your age, race, family history, and other significant factors, and find out how frequently you should be tested. Likewise, men’s reproductive health is also an essential component of their total health and well-being. Men can work with their healthcare professionals to maintain their reproductive health daily by guaranteeing effective contraception, avoiding sexually transmitted diseases, and maintaining fertility.

Men's Sexual Health

STD Testing

It is important to get screened for sexually transmitted diseases, especially if you are sexually active. Most STDs are spread through contact with infected body fluids, such as vaginal fluid, blood, or semen, but they can also be spread by contact with infected skin or mucous membranes, such as mouth sores. Different STDs have different symptoms, and many don’t have any discernable symptoms, so testing is the only way to know if you’ve contracted an STD. However, look for signs like sores or bumps around your genitals, strange discharge, itching, pain in your penis, genital swelling, or a burning sensation when you urinate. At Simply Direct Medicine in Dallas, TX, we’ll collect a urine sample, blood sample, or genital swab to test for STDs. Once the results are in, we can provide any treatment you might need, from information and support to prescriptions. Most common STDs can be easily cured with medicine, so the sooner you know you have an STD, the faster you can start taking care of yourself and your partners.

Health & Wellness

Sports Physicals

A sports physical evaluates your current health status and medical history to ensure you are healthy enough to participate in physical activity. While we treat high school and college athletes, these exams are beneficial to everyone who participates in athletics at any level. Your doctor will review any preexisting injuries and assess your current fitness level to determine if there is any risk associated with your chosen sport. For men, evaluating these factors, along with hormone levels and other metabolic indicators, can provide better insight into athletic performance and overall health. Low testosterone can often cause symptoms like loss of bone density and muscle mass, as well as decreased energy and weight gain. To discuss your athletic goals or concerns, schedule a sports physical with Dr. Molina in Dallas, TX.
