His ED needs to be addressed.

Has he had viagra, cialis, levitra?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes we have used Viagra and cialis but they never worked
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
The first he needs to see a urologist
Has he done this?
Had ultrasound?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No he hasn't, what would happen?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
He might have a vascular problem that can be fixed.
That is what the ultrasound would show.

There are other ways to instill erections as well, injections, and penile suppositories, which an urologist can assess.

I would try all of that first.
