  • A Board-certified urologist's introduction

    Hello my name is Dr. James Elist, and I am a board-certified urologist. I found here and thought to introduce myself. I've been in practice for over 30 years in the field of infertility, urology and male sexual dysfunction, and I've held positions as the Honorary Co-chairman of the Physician Advisory Board for the U.S. Congress, a member of the Fellow of American College of Surgeons (FACS), and a Diplomat of the American Board of Urology. I would like to contribute and help those who have questions and concerns in the field of Urology, Male Sexual Dysfunction and Infertility.

    Great - welcome - several months ago the site got hit by hackers and it had to be upgraded and fixed - the site was down for a number of weeks and the post and activity since has been very low - hopefully it picks up and we can use your skills.
