Dr. Dadvand brings his fine arts background, which above all else gives him a discerning eye when examining patients.

Dr. Dadvand also utilized his time at Indiana University to pursue academic interests, including publications in peer review journals.

YO™, the first smartphone based home male fertility test kit

YO™, the first smartphone based home male fertility test kit

December 30, 2016


Marcia Deutsch, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer, of YO™, the first smartphone based home male fertility test kit joins eHealth Radio and the Men's Health, Technology & Sexual Health Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Marcia Deutsch discuss the following:

  • What is YO?
  • What is the difference between men testing their sperm count v men testing for their motile sperm count?
  • How did you create an at home, home test kit incorporating Smartphone technology?
  • How do you marry the two fields of health and technology?


Marcia Deutsch is CEO of Medical Electronic Systems (MES), the creator of YO, the first home sperm test powered by a smartphone platform. YO is an interactive sperm testing app that uses smartphone technology to analyze and report men’s motile sperm concentration with an easy-to-use at-home sperm testing kit. YO is the first consumer product offered by MES, which makes commercial-grade automated semen analyzers for hospitals and independent laboratories. YO is designed to help consumers access affordable at-home motile sperm testing to better assist them to make informed decisions about their reproductive health.



MES is aglobal medical device company and is widely respected in the industry as the gold standard in comprehensive automated semen analysis. The company has been an established manufacturer of commercial-grade automated semen analyzers for the past 20 years, and is wholly owned by Marcia and her husband, Gabriel Deutsch.

Marcia has a unique career background, combining medical expertise as a registered nurse with years of entrepreneurial success. MES is her second successful business venture.  Prior to MES, Marcia was the founder and CEO of MedCap Medical Cost Management, a company that provided hospital bill auditing services to major health insurance companies. Marcia founded MedCap in 1988 and grew the company to become the leading medical bill-auditing firm in the Western United States. She eventually sold MedCap in 1999 to Healthcare Recoveries, Inc. a public company.

Previous to MedCap, Marcia worked as a Registered Nurse (RN) with a nursing degree from L.A. County USC Medical Center. Her strong core background in medicine and experience in a variety of areas of the healthcare industry inspired her to become an entrepreneur in the medical services field.

Marcia’s unique management style is based on creating a family-like work environment, making strong investments in people, cross training employees to expand their skills, encouraging flexible hours and work locations, creating ongoing reconfigurations of work teams, and enjoying fun times and laughter every day at work. “Like any CEO, I can get really tough and demanding when our company results are on the line, but I truly have a warm, soft-hearted, humorous and caring side that is really genuine,” said Marcia. “And, I always believe in setting a good example and building credibility as the leader, because no job is too small to be worthy of a high level of performance. Being a CEO is not about glory and material rewards for myself, it’s about building a great and solid place to work that will provide for everyone’s livelihood in the future.”



Grooming Hacks for Fall and Winter Weather

Grooming Hacks for Fall and Winter Weather

December 1, 2016


Dr. Terrence Keaney, expert Dermatologist for leading men’s grooming brand, Dove Men+Care joins eHealth Radio and the Dermatology & Skin Care Channels to talk about "Grooming Hacks for Fall and Winter Weather".

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Terrence Keaney discuss the following:

1. Does fall and winter weather affect my skin as much as summer weather?

As you think about skincare in the cooler months, one of the biggest factors that affects skin is the decrease in temperature and humidity. In the summer you might not need to moisturize as much, but the cold weather is very drying so you'll need to supplement your skin with a moisturizer. When choosing a body wash or facial moisturizer for the fall months, avoid products that contain strong chemicals such as benzoyl peroxide, which can be overly drying. If you typically use an acne product that contains these ingredients, it may be a good idea to dial back on use in the winter, since they can cause skin to be red and irritated.

2. Do I need to use sun protection in the fall or winter?

Just because it isn't summer anymore doesn't mean you're off the hook when it comes to sun protection. Fall and winter months are still full of sun exposure, and sun damage is the number one aging accelerator. To keep your skin looking young and healthy, use a moisturizer with SPF to protect against harmful sun damage – I would recommend a broad spectrum sunscreen that SPF 30 or greater.

3. Should I use the same deodorant all year long, no matter the season?

With the temperature dropping, you might not be sweating as much as the warmer months, so you could get away with swapping your strong summer antiperspirant for a lighter deodorant. However, a lot of guys forget that they still sweat between the layers caused by drastic temperature changes going from outside to inside, and back outside. If you're wearing a heavy wool sweater or another fabric that doesn't breathe, consider using a strong but gentle antiperspirant like Dove Men + Care Clinical Protection Antiperspirant Deodorant Solid to keep you dry.

4. Is bar soap bad for my skin?

There is a big misconception about bar soaps. People think they're dirty and foster germs but there are no reputable studies that say there's more bacteria growing on bars. However, there are some brands of soap that can be harmful to skin, if they contain harsh, aggressive cleansing ingredients that strip skin of natural oils and lipids. I recommend a bar with moisture built in, like the Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body & Face Bar, which has a mild formula that contains Dove’s signature ¼ moisturizing cream to replenish moisture in the skin’s outer surface layer.

5. Will the change in seasons affect my hair?

Cooler temperatures can bring adverse effects to hair as well. Similar to your skin, hair is composed of a similar keratin protein, which can get dehydrated and become fragile if not cared for correctly. A hydrating and moisturizing shampoo like Dove Men+Care Complete Care Fortifying 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner can prevent breakage if you're growing out your hair and can help keep your hair's summer luster.

TIP: If there’s one thing that you’ll take away from our conversation today, and hopefully carry through to your grooming routine, it’s that the change is seasons does take its toll on hair and skin. Make sure to listen to your body and take note of any changes, such as dry skin, and think about how to add hydration and moisturization into your daily routine.

Most notably, Dr. Keaney has become a pioneer in gender-specific dermatology. Dr. Keaney begins the first step to treatment personalization by recognizing the importance of gender, specifically its influence on anatomy, skin function, and behavior. Utilizing the latest laser, light, and energy-based technologies, his innovative and differentiated approach to dermatologic treatment provides superior results for both men and women.

Dr. Keaney co-founded the nation’s first cosmetic, hair, and laser surgery center for men. His extensive clinical and research experience in the unique dermatologic needs of male skin and hair allows him to provide the most effective care to his patients. Dr. Keaney understands the needs of his aging male patients and offers the latest technologies to address hair loss, body contouring, and jawline enhancement. In the realm of hair regrowth treatments, Dr. Keaney is one of the few doctors in the world to offer robotic hair restoration surgery.

His expertise in the function of gender as it concerns dermatologic treatment has made him a frequent speaker at medical professional meetings and in the media.

  • One of the major agreements between men and women, according to research, on what makes sex great is whether or not there was an orgasm. Could you explain the orgasm gap and dispel any myths surrounding how long should great sex actually last?
