“We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.” – Benjamin Franklin
One of the questions we often hear from patients at American Male Medical Centers is, “Am I too old for this treatment?”
Our standard reply is, “Erectile Dysfunction affects men of all ages. We have patients in their twenties, we have patients in their eighties, and everywhere in between.”
Truth is, we also have patients in their nineties. And recently we were happy to serve our oldest patient to date – ninety-six years old.
No, that is not a typo, he is ninety-six.
The gentleman came to us seeking help as he was no longer able to maintain his erection. After his consultation and examination by one of our doctors he was found to be in good health, and qualified for treatment. The test dose we gave him worked well and he left the clinic as another satisfied, happy patient.
We’re not sure this record will ever be beaten. Although you never know, a patient of one hundred or older is unlikely, which only leaves three numbers – 97, 98 & 99 – that can beat the record.
We were going to ask the patient if he would acquiesce to an interview for this blog, as it’s a fascinating human interest story, and we are left wondering about so many things:
Is he married? If so for how long, and how old is his partner?
Is he single, and dating, and if so what’s the singles scene like for nonagenarians (people from ages 90 to 99)? Are retirement homes a hotbed for dating?
Or, maybe he’s neither married nor dating. Maybe he’s just, well . . . never mind.
Whatever his situation is, he’s kind of an in-office hero to us now.
The guy is 96 and he’s still having sex – how great is that?
And he’s also living proof that you’re never too old to enjoy life to the fullest – with help from the physicians at American Male Medical Centers!
