Men's Sexual Health
Our Men's Sexual Health program refers to the promotion of well-being in men, which allows them to fully participate in and enjoy sexual activity. While we welcome patients of every inclination and sexual orientation, we have a deep familiarity and expertise with LGBTQ+ individuals, especially MSMs. Through the lens of wellness, Wellness Homes of Chicago helps ALL men to address their sexual health, which encompasses their physical, psychological, interpersonal, and social wellbeing.
Our Legacy of LGBTQ+ Men's Sexual Health Outreach and Advocacy
Northstar is proud of our history of serving the LGBTQ+ community for over 30 years. Our founder, Dr. Daniel Berger, has served and continues to play his role as principle investigator of more than 200 HIV-related clinical trials. As such, our providers have unique experience with the treatment and care of these patients; we incorporate advanced antiviral therapy with hormonal treatments, nutritional counseling, and psychological therapy. Our HIV treatment and care center physicians are leaders in the field and well-known for their comprehensive knowledge and approach to their work.
Our comprehensive menu of community-based wellness programs for HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, & PrEP Care are aimed at addressing the disparity gap in the acquisition of sexually transmitted infections, HIV/AIDS, and hepatitis care. Our Men's Sexual Health Program also provides client-level data to assist with monitoring the effectiveness of our services and progress toward national HIV/AIDS goals, including addressing disparities among communities of color. To that end, we partner with community providers, healthcare centers, educational institutions and other community-based organizations to provide onsite STI testing, HIV Care, and case management. Many healthcare organizations forego these services due to their inability to attract competent, experienced, and qualified staff, which contributes to widening the gap in health disparity. HIV/AIDS treatment, STI, PrEP and HIV Case Management services are available, as are various MedSpa treatments specially designed for this community.
Our Men's Sexual Health services include:
Several of our MedSpa treatments are also specifically designed for patients dealing with the effects of HIV/AIDS, including Sculptra and other facial fillers and injections.
Note: Low cost or no cost STI testing is available for those who qualify.
