 Eating habits can be a great indicator of overall health. Nevertheless, getting a checkup from time to time is necessary.

Getting a man to see a doctor can be tricky. Most think they don’t need to go if they aren’t sick. However, as Dr. William Brant tells us in the video, there are several issues men should discuss in order to stay healthy, and prevent serious illnesses like heart disease. Dr. Brant also has some ideas for convincing the men in your life to make an appointment today.

No man wants to go in for a health evaluation and spend the morning in a waiting room, bored. So to avoid that scenario, a visit at the Men's Health Clinic gets you breakfast, some much needed ESPN time, and will consist of the following:

Physical exam by a family medicine physician

Blood testing to check cholesterol (LDL, HDL, and triglycerides) and blood sugar or glucose level

Hearing test

Fitness evaluation and consultation with physical therapist

Nutrition assessment and consultation with a dietitian

Be sure to watch the video for more tips on men's health.
