“Our main focus here is patient care,” said Dan Hartman, one of the directors of Buffalo Men’s Health Medical Practice.

The office's staff, which includes Hartman, Jeff Abbott, Jack Zackey and Paul Nigro, treats men with erectile dysfunction by providing them with several options.

In December, Hartman, Nigro, Abbott and Zackey opened the practice at 1412 Sweet Home Road, Suite 5, off Rensch Road, Amherst, after they worked together at another clinic.

After their former business closed, they decided to create their own practice. They currently serve more than 2,500 patients throughout the eastern U.S. and portions of Canada.

As paramedics and medical technicians, Hartman, Nigro, Abbott and Zackey are certified to administer the procedures while under the orders of the practice's physicians.

“We all have different responsibilities with our patients, and we see them regularly,” Hartman said.

Abbott said they have assisted patients of all backgrounds and medical conditions, including diabetics, men with physical handicaps and those who have hypertension.

The medication provided at the office is also used for men who tend to have premature ejaculations.

“It’s actually been very effective with prostate cancer patients,” he said. “We are very proud of this. This is something the area needs.”

A patient seeking assistance can schedule a one-on-one consultation with the physicians and is administered an examination and medical regimen pertinent to his individual needs.

“We come up with a test dose of the medication based on their age and medical history,” Abbott said.

Hartman, president of the Getzville Fire Company, said that for men who have tried medications in the form of a pill, the practice’s medication is a better method that most often achieves the result a patient wants.

Abbott, the emergency management coordinator for the City of North Tonawanda, said the practice is currently seeking to expand services offered by working with a local sleep apnea clinic.

“We are hoping to expand because sleep apnea is actually one of the causes of erectile dysfunction,” he said. “A lot of people who may have ED don’t realize they have sleep apnea too.”

The office is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
