Many men are hesitant to see a doctor for their health issues, that’s why the GPs at Daintree Health are committed to providing an understanding and considerate approach to your health care, whether it’s related to mental health, sexual health, or just a common cold.
Improving men’s health is a high priority. A boy born in Australia in 2019 has a life expectancy of 81.5 years while a baby girl born at the same time could expect to live to 85.4 years old.**
Right from the start, males tend to suffer more illness, more accidents and die earlier than their female counterparts^. 75% of those who take their own life are male,*** and coronary heart disease is the leading underlying cause of deaths in males.#
Our doctors recognise prevention is vital to improve men’s health outcomes. Moreover, as men attend doctors less frequently than women, our GPs encourage men to return for regular check ups.
Male health checks can cover a range of issues, the most common being prostate, STD checks, family planning, heart disease, sports injury, depression and mental health issues.
With the right information for your specific situation you can understand the risks, handle lifestyle changes, improve your health and maintain well-being.
