Donald Has Sought Medical Treatment for His Erectile Dysfunction

Question 184
Multiple Choice

Donald has sought medical treatment for his erectile dysfunction. He was surprised when his physician would only prescribe medication (e.g., Viagra) on the condition that he also consults with a psychologist. Why would the physician make that recommendation? A) Because the physician probably gets a "kick-back" from the psychologist B) Because the cause and treatment of sexual dysfunctions often involve psychosocial factors C) Because the physician knows the medication is just a "band-aid" and the problems will remain unresolved without a psychologist's involvement D) Because the physician is uncomfortable talking about sexual dysfunctions and would prefer to divert the conversation to a psychologist.
