Bio

Tonight in Medical Rounds…The statistics say it all…Men are 1.4 times as likely as women to die from almost every chronic medical condition, and on average live five years less than women; according to the National Center for Health Statistics.

But, a new program at Hartford HealthCare has been designed to change that. In fact, there is a celebration happening right now to dedicate the Tallwood Men’s Health Center in Farmington and that’s where we find Dr. Urologist Dr. Jared Bieniek among the festivities…good evening…Dr. Bieniek…

Good Evening!

Q. This is certainly an exciting evening to officially open such an important Center all for men. Tell us about the Tallwood Men’s Health Center…what does it offer men?

A. Our new center is a beautiful and convenient center designed to incorporate doctors and décor for men. Under one roof we are able to offer care with urology, preventative cardiology, endocrinology, medical and surgical weight loss, and behavioral health.

But more important than individual services is the coordination of care with a dedicated nurse coordinator. We’re flipping the script. Rather than focus on specific health complaints, we’re addressing preventative and linked medical conditions to treat a group of under-served health care consumers -- men.

Q. Take us through the process once a man enters the Tallwood Men’s Health Center…how is his care coordinated through these different services?

A. The first time a man enters the Men’s Health practice, regardless of the reason, is an opportunity to address preventative health care. That’s why we created age-appropriate men’s health checklists for each man to complete. Some men may not have a family physician or be up to date with screenings; this is our chance to get them caught up.

And central to our coordination of care, of course, is a dedicated nurse coordinator. She integrates care between physicians in the center and works with established primary care physicians to ensure men are getting the care they need and deserve.

Q. You specialize in men’s sexual function and men’s sex health…what do you want men to know?

A. I have two important points to convey to men regarding sexual function and health. First, you’re not alone. Whether it is erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, low drive, or penile curvature also known as Peyronie’s disease, many men are struggling with the same problems. Don’t be afraid to talk to your partner and your doctor.

And secondly, remember that there are experts out there who can help you. Find someone who has training and experience helping men like you. Don’t believe everything you read on the internet or hear on the commercials. It’s important to get the whole you checked out.

Q. Based on what you see with your patients, why do men have such a difficult time committing to going to the doctor? What advice do you have for loved ones to get them to commit?

A. There are many reasons men don’t typically see a doctor. When we’re young, we feel invincible. As we age, we adopt the attitude: if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. My wife likes to remind me that I use the same excuses. Loved ones, we both want to keep the men in your life around so keep after them to see their doctors and bring up those concerns. And men, you owe it for your loved ones and yourself.

Thank you Dr. Bieniek. For more information call the Hartford HealthCare Tallwood Urology and Kidney Institute at 1-855-247-7747 and choose option “one” for Men’s Health.
