"Dr. Hakky is such a great doctor. We first found him at a Urology practice in Snellville and were SOOOO happy to hear he was opening his own practice. My husband had an abnormal semen analysis and has Low T, so treatments were typically go to fertility specialist for IVF or IUI. Dr. Hakky introduced us to a newer way to treat both and we are now pregnant with our 2nd child and my husband feels great hormone wise. I am a nurse at a OBGYN practice and we now send all of our abnormal semen analysis patients to him. He has a great personality and knows his stuff. Highly recommend!!"- L.J. / Google / Dec 04, 2019

Please seek out the professional medical advice of Dr. Hakky, a board-certified urologist, who has more than a decade of experience in treating and monitoring ED. His esteemed Atlanta, GA practice welcomes all patients and encourages those who have an erectile disorder to seek qualified professional help.
Viagra was the first ED medication to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Because of this, the "little blue pill" is a well-known medication in this industry. You can take your once-daily Viagra pill 1 – 4 hours before you intend to have sexual intercourse.
Before taking Viagra, you must first ensure that you are sexually stimulated because you cannot generate an erection just by taking the medicine if you are not aroused. Viagra typically starts to work after 30 – 60 minutes, although it could take longer. Viagra can be taken with or without food but should only be taken once daily.
Another well-known drug for the treatment of ED is Cialis, an often-prescribed medication by Dr. Hakky. Unlike the other medications, Cialis is not always recommended to be taken every single day (a maximum of one dose every 24 hours) and should only be taken as advised by Dr. Hakky. You should take this medication at least 30 minutes before sexual intercourse. Once responsive, you will achieve and maintain an erection firm enough for penetration. You can take Cialis with food or without.
A medication designed to address the symptoms of ED, Levitra treats male impotence and allows takers to generate an erection that is suitable for penetration. Intended to be taken no more than once daily, Levitra is known to take effect in roughly one hour. Like the other medications, Levitra can be taken with or without food. This ED pill can be prescribed at a variety of dosages, depending on your needs, how often it is to be taken, and your individual ED management program.
The newest among this selection, Stendra is an ED medication that is said to be effective in as little as 15 minutes. Stendra can be taken with or without food. Higher doses (100 mg or 200 mg) of Stendra should be taken approximately 15 minutes before engaging in sexual activity. Lower doses (50 mg) should be taken about 30 minutes before sexual activity. You should only take your pill once daily or as directed by Dr. Hakky.
Compounding Medications for ED
If you would like to learn more about more cost-effective medications for ED, you may have an alternative with compounding medications as recommended by Dr. Hakky and made by a compounding pharmacist. Atlanta Cosmetic Urology partners with three reputable compounding pharmacies (Empower, menMD, and Concord Pharmacy). All medications can be customized for your needs and dosage.
What to Expect
Depending on your situation, Dr. Hakky could prescribe you an ED medication either by itself or in tandem with other sexual health interventions. It's important to keep in mind that each medication has special instructions, dosages, and limitations. You must be sure to take your pill as directed. Dr. Hakky will work closely with you to ensure that you are prescribed the best drug to accommodate your ED.
After prescribing your ED med, Dr. Hakky will want to see you back in the office after several weeks to make sure that your dose is appropriate and that the pill is working well for you.
