ED
Occasionally having trouble getting or maintaining an erection isn’t a serious problem, but having it occur often indicates erectile dysfunction (ED). If you have this condition, it can have a significant impact on your relationships and sex life, leading to stress and a loss of self-esteem. At The Center for Internal and Integrative Medicine, Dr. Eduard Fatakhov provides treatment for men in Alpharetta, Georgia, who have ED.
