Objective.  To evaluate the introduction of telephone follow-up reviews for prescriptions of oral erectogenic agents.

Patients and Methods.  124 men of 166 invited patients who had participated in telephone consultations during the first 12 months of operation.

Results.  91.9% of respondents found the telephone clinic more convenient than traditional attendance particularly because the former requires no travel and waiting time to be seen by a consultant.

Conclusion.  Men with erectile dysfunction can be followed up by telephone in the majority of cases where an oral erectogenic agent has been prescribed. Wylie K, Allen P, and Hallam-Jones R. An evaluation of a telephone follow-up clinic in urology. J Sex Med 2005;2:641–644.
