Sexual dysfunction is very common and yet under researched and under treated. In our clinics we see patients with issues surrounding low desire, arousal/orgasm disorders and sexual pain conditions. While often not taught, there are many evidence based treatment strategies to use in treating these patients. Dr. Rubin will go over diagnostic criteria, proper physical exam techniques as well as evidence based medical management of various sexual medicine conditions.
