For Patients

Learn how to take an active role in your healthcare and become a healthier man.


The Men’s Health Program at El Camino Health recognizes men’s unique health needs, as well as their reluctance to see a doctor. Despite the intricate way their bodies work and the health needs that come with age, men are 70 percent less likely to seek medical treatment than women. So, we created a program that’s just for you — one that preserves your privacy, staffed by specialists who are easy to talk to.

While we’re especially sensitive to the conditions that come with age, the Men’s Health Program offers an effective “all-points inspection” for men of all ages, each time you visit. Our comprehensive checkups and screenings are designed to assess your overall health and well-being — because one seemingly local symptom could have far-reaching causes.

If you’re a new patient or scheduled for surgery at El Camino Health, we have important information for you:

  • Health tips. We encourage you to talk about your health and review your health habits with your doctor to create opportunities that improve your well-being.
  • Overview of services. Get to know our men’s health offerings and how we work together to care for the whole person.
  • Surgical instructions. Knowing what to expect before, during and after surgery can make the process go smoother. We help you prepare.
