Sexual health office opens in Downey

DOWNEY - WISH, the Western Institute for Sexual Health, has opened its new Downey office location at 11411 Brookshire Ave., Suite 508, near Downey Regional Medical Center.An opening reception and patient education forum is planned for May. "We are very pleased to be in Downey and serving patients in this area, including Long Beach and Orange County," said Dr. Larry Paletz, a board certified urologist and one of four WISH doctors offering sexual health and fitness services to patients. "We're here to meet the needs of men and women who want to be intimate, bring back that 'lovin' feeling' and keep sex a part of their lives," Paletz explained. "My colleagues and I have found that some people are not comfortable talking with their own doctor about their sexual health issues. That's why we're here to listen, to educate and to help patients know that most sexual health issues can be resolved. They don't have to suffer in silence, and their partners will be happy they sought treatment." Medical and psychological services are offered at the three WISH offices, located in Downey, Inglewood and Santa Monica.
