Dr Elist's books are written as a patient information handbook. Their purpose is to aid in the understanding of normal and abnormal sexual function and how to get the correct answer and treatment for impotency. In the last ten years the medical community has approached this subject on a scientific level. Until then, most doctors diagnosed impotency as a problem strictly in the mind. As a result of the latest research, this highly sensitive and confidential subject is now being recognized as being a physical disorder in most cases. The books contain lots of useful information and experiences. A visit to a urologist who is qualified and specialized in impotency is the beginning of the potential treatment to the problem. A urologist who specializes in impotency deals with this problem frequently and is able to recognize the symptoms and guide the patient in the direction of treatment and relief. It is most important that the patient, his partner, and the urologist feel comfortable with each other and develop an honest, trusting relationship for maximum success. Whether the source is physical or psychological, most impotent men can now be treated with the newest of techniques.

“Hey Dr. Elist! I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with my enhancement surgery. It has been over year going on two now. My testicles are hanging lower and looking really good. It’s funny to say this but I get a lot of compliments and comments in the locker room. I look really good in Bluejeans now. And I do occasionally catch people checking out my crotch, and my confidence is really good now. Thank you again! If you ever need me to talk to a patients or someone thinking about surgery please give them my number.”

― Trevor J

“I had discomfort for years with a small penis. I had a hard time finding underwear or clothing that I could wear comfortably. The small length of my penis caused it to stick out instead of down. This also made sitting uncomfortable...I was looking for a permanent solution. I discovered Dr. Elist online...The Dr. and his staff were great. They removed the fat graft and put the implant in. The surgery and recovery were great. The results were immediate. 1.5 years later my self image has improved. I no longer have problems wearing underwear, clothing, or sitting. Kudos to Dr. Elist and the staff for their caring and patient treatment of me. ”
