Planned Parenthood/Los Angeles has opened a men's clinic at its Santa Monica location in the Old Santa Monica Mall.
Dr. J. Hugh Anwyl, executive director for Planned Parenthood in Los Angeles, said, "Planned Parenthood wishes to provide males with similar type of primary health care that it provides for its female clientele.
"Our research shows an ever-increasing need for male services, as shown by the fact that this men's clinic will be the third such program in our agency."
Planned Parenthood operates men's clinics in Sherman Oaks and Canoga Park. These clinics offer the following services:
Diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, vasectomy counseling (the procedure is done at two other clinic sites), contraception and premarital blood tests.
