Alice Oglethorpe highlights Dr. Rick Taylor in her Men’sHealth.com article about Peyronie’s Disease:
Noticing a bend in your penis can be, to put it mildly, unsettling—especially because you might feel like you’re the only guy it’s ever happened to. “This isn’t the kind of thing you get a beer and talk to your buddies about,” says Frederick Taylor, MD, a men’s health specialist and urologist with Central Ohio Urology Group.
