MISSION STATEMENT

At The Y Factor, our mission is to provide a physician-led team of urology experts dedicated to the study and practice of men’s urological health and wellness. The Y chromosome is the defining factor that determines unique male characteristics. The Y Factor makes all the difference and contains your code to reproductive health!

As a result, we are changing the men’s urological wellness conversation. Women have a gynecologist and men don’t have the equivalent. Until now!

The Y Factor is the premier men’s urologically-inspired medical practice designed to ensure a diagnosis based on the underlying cause of your health problem. Identifying the source of your health issues enables us to develop life-enhancing treatments targeted at improving your vitality and quality of life.

Why Choose The Y Factor?

The Y Factor gets to the core of the problem with trusted, tried and true diagnosis procedures.

The Y Factor was created by men, for men, to cure and fix men! You do not have to be broken to come see us. Too many men are dying at 50, 55, and 60 years of age from issues that could have been prevented in their 30s and 40s. Do not simply “tough it out” or “suck it up”.

Let us help you with your issues of declining urological health and get you back to the top of your game.
