Dr Kam Mann, MBBS, MRCP, MRCGP
Dr Kam Mann graduated from The London Hospital Medical College and has worked as a partner GP in a large practice for over 16 years in the Winchester area. He upholds strong beliefs in providing quality, evidence based medical care and prides himself on extending his knowledge and experience by pursuing on-going personal education and training.
Dr Mann's interest and experience in men's health and andrology has extended throughout his career. He notes that testosterone deficiency is rarely seen in isolation, but is interwoven with conditions like metabolic syndrome and other lifestyle factors that come about with the ageing process; all areas that he believes need to be treated in close consideration of each other.
He is passionate about the high level of care provided by the Centre for Men's Health and believes that thorough and empathetic assessment and treatment of this condition is facilitated by the superior resources to hand, the ability to be able to devote more time to every patient and the vast experience and knowledge of the team,
Dr Douglas Savage, MB, ChB, MRCGP
Dr Savage developed an interest in sexual medicine about 20 years ago, initially in the management of erectile dysfunction. He initially trained with urologists in the Royal Hallamshire Hospital and elsewhere in Leicester, and over the years has developed further knowledge and skills in the area of testosterone treatment from his colleagues in sexual medicine. He has run a Sexual Dysfunction clinic based at his NHS practice premises for 21 years, and for the last two years has had a contract with two Primary Care Trusts.
He regularly attends national and international meetings of the relevant societies. He is a certificated member of the Society for the Study of Androgen Deficiency (Andropause Society), of the British and European Societies for Sexual Medicine, the Society for the Study of the Aging Male, and the Sexual Dysfunction Alliance.

Dr Beren Hollins, MB ChB
Since graduating from the Dundee University Medical School 17 years ago, Dr Hollins has worked extensively in the Tayside area as a GP. In the last few years, he has changed his focus toward private practice with the aim of providing patients with access to high quality medical care and information and a truly patient led service.
As a GP with a particular interest in cardiovascular medicine he has always taken a pro-active approach to men's sexual health, recognising that erectile dysfunction is a common problem in patients with cardiovascular disorders and a common side effect of the medication involved in its treatment.
Dr Hollins notes that men appreciate frank discussion regarding the subject, but are often reluctant to initiate it and he feels it important to assist men to understand and make informed decisions about their own health.
