Andrologists are doctors who treat and diagnose diseases of the male genitalia. The name of comes from the Greek word for man, "andros." Today, many factors, including stress and environmental degradation, are contributing to an increase in the incidence of sexual dysfunction in men. Andrologists have a number of approaches to treat this problem, but not all men are aware of this option, and those that are often reluctant to contact a specialist due to psychological barriers. Men who experience diminished sexual performance should contact an andrologist. And annual checkups with an andrologist are recommended, in order to detect early stages of various diseases.
Andrologists treat a wide range of disorders, both chronic and acute. Immediately consult a doctor if you experience any of the following symptoms:
A consultation with an andrologist is necessary for the following medical conditions:
If you have one or more of the above symptoms, or questions relating to them, you should consult with an andrologist.
At the consultation, the andrologist will ask about your complaints, and if necessary, will examine the internal and external genital organs. A preliminary diagnosis can be made at the first visit. For acute conditions, symptomatic treatment will be immediately prescribed.
For an accurate diagnosis and selection of optimal treatment methods, the andrologist may prescribe various tests and analyses. These are performed right in our clinic - some can be done immediately, while others require some preparation. A diagnosis is made based on the test results, and a full course of treatment will be prescribed.
By the way, sometimes it is helpful to bring your partner with you to the consultation - in some cases this will help identify the problem more quickly. In addition, there is a possibility that the medical issue is not only with you.

I am writing to you, on behalf of my wife Helen and myself, to thank all the staff of GMS clinic for the help and support you gave us during our stay in Moscow.
Since, I am ashamed that admit that I speak no Russian, I hope that you will be willing to translate this for the members of the GMS staff who do not speak English.
My own doctor seems pleased with the progress I am making. I still have a dressing on one of the wounds where the stitches may have been removed prematurely before I left the clinic but the others are fine and healing well.
Being ill and requiring surgery in another country will always be something of an ordeal, but the calm reassuring atmosphere in the GMS clinic did much to make us feel better about the experience. The administrative staff at reception was kind as well as efficient and their efforts on our behalf are something that we will never forget. We would also like to thank the cooks for the excellent food they prepared. We regret that we did not get the opportunity to meet them but we greatly appreciated their efforts and, after almost a week without normal food, I particularly enjoyed being able to choose from their extensive menu. Please forgive me for not always doing justice to the meals served but it has taken some time for my appetite to return to normal. We would also like to thank the room attendants for serving our meals so well and keeping our room so clean and tidy. Just as important for us, when so far from home, was that they always did so with a gracious smile. We looked forward to their visits and would like to thank them for being so remarkably patient when we tried to talk to them. We would also like to thank the several kind nurses who cared for me so diligently. I do not believe that I could not have enjoyed more attentive nursing anywhere else in the world and will never forget you. The several doctors who attended me at various stages also need to be thanked. I am grateful to them all but hope that they will forgive me for singling out Dr Constantin Dimitri for a particular mention. His patience, as he explained to me so well in English both what was happening to my body following the operation, and what he and the rest of the medical team were doing - and why – was particularly appreciated and helpful to me during my recovery.
Many, many thanks to you all.
Many thanks to Dr. Oleg Sergeevich Abramov, who performed a surgery and helped me cure a severe case of odontogenic sinusitis.
Dr. Abramov is extremely competent and polite, a true professional with a rare set of skills. I have already recommended him to a colleague of mine and will recommend again.

Greetings from South Africa,
This is a follow up to our recent stay at GMS where my wife Merle Step had a complete Hip replacement by you recently.
She stood up to the return trip to South Africa very well and is able move around with the aid of a walker without difficulty. I took her to our local General Practitioner on Friday, with all your reports and X-Ray plates. He commented that he was very happy with the excellent procedures that you carried out and felt that she was in excellent professional hands while at GMS. He has referred her to an orthopedic surgeon for a final checkup and stitch removal. Also she is to go to Physo for further manipulation.
From both of us we cannot express our gratitude enough for the professional service, helpful administrative as well as nursing staff that attended to our needs while at GMS. We will always look back and always remember the Russian people for their friendly assistance to two complete strangers from another part of the world. In turn Russia will always be in our hearts and we will be good Ambassadors for your great country and federation.
Please pass on our greetings and thanks to a few that I remember by names, if I have left anyone out I apologies.
