Sexual health patients are complex and require a multi-step approach. For this reason, Dr. Javaid, with the support of The Patty Brisben Foundation for Women’s Sexual Health, formed the Ohio Center for Sexual Health.
The mission of the Ohio Center for Sexual Health is to provide women with access to experts in the field of sexual medicine:
The center will give women a place to go with their sexual health concerns - to be able to ask questions, seek therapy, and do so with providers who take insurance.
Women’s sexual health has long been ignored and there has been a real lack of information and treatment options - until now. Women from all walks of life, young and old, post -menopausal, cancer survivors, women from different sexual orientations, religion, race - all have sexual health concerns, but many suffer in silence. They may be embarrassed to ask questions, they may think their problems are their fault, or they may feel they have nowhere to go to express their concerns. Dr. Javaid created the Ohio Center for Sexual Health to help empower women to take control of their sexual health.
