Host: Matt Birnholz, MD
Guest: Maureen Whelihan, MD
There is a stigma around sex in the United States. That stigma makes it difficult both for patients to disclose details about their sex lives in clinical settings and for physicians to ask patients about sex. Consequentially patients may have treatable but unaddressed sexual problems because their physicians don't know those problems exists. Join Dr. Matt Birnholz and Dr. Maureen Whelihan, President of The Center for Sexual Health and Education in West Palm Beach, Florida, as they discuss case stories spanning the various ages and stages of sexual health, and their implications in helping physicians and patients talk about sex.
