In researching my book, I asked men about performance issues. What happens in your head when you can't get it up? How does it become (as I've heard it can be) a self-perpetuating problem? I'm close to literally a dozen fine, garrulous older men. But when I broached this topic, every one of them turned red and stammered and then was struck mute.
Dear Savvy Senior: Can you write a column educating patients on how to prepare for doctors appointments? I manage a number of small health clinics, and have found that patients -- especially seniors -- that come prepared when they visit our doctors are much more satisfied with the care they receive.
