At Alpha Med Group, our doctors focus on an integrative health approach. We use multimodal strategies to help you take control of your health through quality healthcare, positive life choices, proper diet, and staying active. When combined with the latest research in anti-aging and regenerative medicine, our patients benefit from a fully personalized approach. Unlike other health clinics, our programs target the root causes of our patient's symptoms. That way, they can enjoy a healthy, fulfilling life in public and also in the bedroom.
We're proud to have everything you need to improve your health and achieve your goals. Our providers will expertly handle your nuanced health challenges using advanced therapies like GAINSWave treatments to achieve a results-based outcome you'll love.
Some of the most common conditions we treat at Alpha Med Group include:
GAINSWave might sound too good to be true on the surface. However, this type of erectile dysfunction treatment in Clearwater uses science-based, research-backed applications and technologies that have been proven to be effective.
GAINSWave works by targeting the underlying issue of ED: blood flow. Continuous blood flow is critical in maintaining an erection. As men age, blood vessels in their penis break down and fill up with micro plaques, further reducing blood flow. GAINSWave treatment addresses this issue using low-intensity shockwaves or acoustic pulses to re-open closed blood vessels and help form new ones simultaneously. This increased blood flow essentially eliminates the symptoms of erectile dysfunction, letting men across the country gain a new lease on life.
Because this procedure is drug, surgery, and needle-free, most men won't have to stress about costly insurance claims or ugly scarring. All you need to think about is enjoying life with a new pep in your step, whether you're headed to work or spending time with your spouse in the bedroom.
Alpha Med Group's patients love that GAINSWave is quick, effective, and gets right to the root cause of their issues. Our GAINSWave treatments yield long-term results with optimized sexual performance and even treat other issues like Peyronie's disease.
Any man older than 30 can enjoy the benefits of GAINSWave therapy. Men with or without erectile dysfunction use GAINSWave to reshape their sex lives without resorting to over-the-counter pills and prescriptions like Cialis. While it's true that the “blue pill” can temporarily relieve ED, that relief is short-lived because pills don't address the root cause of the issue. To make matters worse, many drugs have unwanted and unsafe side effects. GAINSWave represents a much safer, more effective solution for men who are sick and tired of the stress and embarrassment associated with ED.
Whether you're dealing with severe erectile dysfunction or you simply want a little more spark with your partner, GAINSWave is the surgery-free, drug-free alternative you can rely on.
To help you get a better understanding of Alpha Med Group's GAINSWave therapy, consider these quick facts:
In today's day and age, products that promise quick results and convenience are king. It makes sense, then, that many men want the fastest solution to their ED problem. While it's easy to pop a “little blue pill,” doing so can come with consequences that you don't get with GAINSWave treatment. And when it comes to sketchy over-the-counter options that you can buy at your local gas station, the risks are quite concerning. Before you re-up your prescription or head to the gas station, consider these side effects:
If you're one of the many men who settled for strange side effects just to regain confidence in the bedroom, it's time to celebrate. Rather than relying on prescriptions or a la carte options, health-conscious men are using GAINSWave treatments for a safer, natural solution with no side effects.
Men suffering from Peyronie's disease may notice an array of symptoms, which may manifest quickly or slowly. Some of the most common symptoms include:
Severe Bend of Penis: One of the most common symptoms of Peyronie's disease is significant bending of the penis in a certain direction, with or without achieving an erection.
If you're one of the many American men who has lost hope because of Peyronie's disease, there is a new reason to be hopeful. Peyronie's disease is treatable, and you don't have to rely on surgery, vacuum devices, or a wait-and-see approach to get results.
If you're a man searching for a safe, non-invasive, natural treatment option for Peyronie's disease, GAINSWave therapy is the way to go. GAINSWave incorporates premium low-intensity, high-frequency shockwaves that break down plaque (or scar tissue) while opening and creating new blood vessels. When blood flow is increased, the penis curvature associated with Peyronie's disease is often reduced, giving men a new chance to enjoy a healthy sex life.
At Alpha Med Group, our focus is on your goals, your results, and your experience. We firmly believe that your story matters and our team is ready and waiting to listen. We provide functional, personalized, regenerative medicines that address root causes, coupled with an industry-leading, progressive care strategy that is centered around our patients.
If you're looking for GAINSWave treatment in a professional, welcoming setting provided by sexual health experts, contact our state-of-the-art office in Clearwater today. Whether you need help with embarrassing symptoms related to erectile dysfunction or you're looking to revive your sex life with a natural solution, we're here for you.

A report indicates the region is expected to see an additional 2 to 8.5 feet of sea-level rise by the end of this century.CLEARWATER, FL — The city of Clearwater has launched a citywide vulnerability assessment to better understand how climate factors, such as flooding and extreme heat, will impact the city in the near and distant future.This assessment is funded by the state of Florida's Resilient Florida Grant Program at $197,848, with a required local match of $24,000.According to the Tampa Bay Climate Science...
CLEARWATER, FL — The city of Clearwater has launched a citywide vulnerability assessment to better understand how climate factors, such as flooding and extreme heat, will impact the city in the near and distant future.
This assessment is funded by the state of Florida's Resilient Florida Grant Program at $197,848, with a required local match of $24,000.
According to the Tampa Bay Climate Science Advisory Panel's 2019 report, the Tampa Bay region has already experienced 7.8 inches of sea-level rise since 1946. Based upon its assessment of scientific data and literature, the report indicates the region is expected to see an additional 2 to 8.5 feet of sea-level rise by the end of this century.
Additionally, from a 2019 report by the Union of Concerned Scientists, Florida is expected to face a heat index of 105 degrees Fahrenheit or higher for a third of the year. Such an increase would create health hazards for Clearwater's low-income residents, socially vulnerable communities and outdoor workers.
These factors, in addition to several other climate hazards, have caused the Tampa Bay region to be listed as one of the most at-risk areas in the world.
Under the guidance of a multi-disciplinary technical advisory committee involving regional partners, the city will work with a consulting firm to create a "digital twin" of Clearwater to test vital community elements, including the natural, built and social environments, against several projected climate impacts, with the greatest priority being given to analyzing the impacts of flood and heat.
"Impacts will be felt disproportionately by people who lack access to shelter, who are unable to afford air conditioning, the elderly and people who work outdoors, among others," said Sheridan Gemuendt, the city of Clearwater's sustainability coordinator. "Using an innovative, scientific and data-driven resiliency tool, we hope to address climate impacts at the local level. We appreciate the dtate grant program for supporting our initial efforts in creating a resilient Clearwater."
The project will result in a resilience report that will include project findings and serve as the basis to guide capital project investments, assist with the planning of a future Climate Action Plan, and identify alternatives that support social justice and cost-benefit objectives of the city.
Pinellas County also received funding for a countywide vulnerability assessment. The city and county studies will share some data. However, Clearwater's study will be more specific to city infrastructure and neighborhoods.
The county's study focuses mostly on the effects of sea-level rise and flooding, while Clearwater's will include those risks in addition to other concerns, such as extreme heat and impacts to public health.
When complete, the results of the study will be presented to the public at sessions designed to both inform residents about these risks and receive feedback on the study's proposed mitigation solutions.

CLEARWATER, FL — RSR Capital Advisors has announced its first development project in the new Clearwater Marina District — a 52-unit luxury condominium community that will be built with the high-end buyer in mind.
Construction documents are well underway for the project at 708 Osceola Ave., which is expected to include both designer-ready shells and move-in ready units, with pricing expected to start at $1.2 million. Residents will enjoy waterfront views of the Intracoastal Waterway, a pool/cabana area, a fitness and activity center, a golf simulator and other high-end amenities.
RSR Capital Advisors expects to break ground on the project in early 2023, with plans calling for presales to begin next fall and completion in the summer of 2024.
“We expect this project to be the next successful luxury condominium development in Clearwater,” said Rodney Riley, principal and CEO of RSR Capital Advisors. “With a terrific location on the Intracoastal Waterway, combined with all the amenities high-end condo owners expect, we believe this community will be a hit with buyers.”
RSR closed on the land purchase for this property this week. Kast Construction will be the general contractor, with BC Architects doing the design and Kimley-Horn handling the engineering. RSR will be partnering with a luxury real estate company in coming months to handle sales, while RSR works with Gensler and B2 Communications to create a brand and name for the community.
While higher mortgage rates are impacting lower- and mid-priced properties in the west Florida real estate market, interest in luxury properties remains high, as evidenced by the recent sellout of the Serena by the Sea condominium community on Sunset Point Road, just north of the Clearwater Marina District.
“People are continuing to move to Florida and buying higher-end properties,” Riley said. “We also expect to get demand from people who are in older high-end homes in areas like Belleair and Clearwater Beach who would like to be in a brand-new, best-in-class condo on the water.”
Elsewhere in the Clearwater Marina District, RSR has reached an agreement with multiple sellers to purchase a total of 15 aggregated parcels ranging in size from 0.3 to 3.5 acres in a site area that includes 21 total acres. RSR expects to be closing on other parcels in coming months as the project continues to take shape.
RSR Capital Advisors, based in Clearwater, Florida, is headed by veteran real estate developer Rodney Riley, who has developed projects across the United States. Throughout his career, Riley has focused on the Sun Belt in such cities as Naples, Coral Springs, Orlando and Winter Park in Florida; Scottsdale and Mesa in Arizona; and Salt Lake City and Park City in Utah.
The company believes in creating vibrant, engaging spaces for people to live, work and play, while considering the needs of nearby neighborhoods, particularly those in underserved areas.

White sandy beaches, pristine sea waters, warm sun and a gentle breeze: what more could you ask for? If you’re looking for a beach getaway without leaving the east coast, look no further than Florida. With so many options available on where to go, it can be challenging to figure out which vacation spot in Florida is the best beach for you.
Even those who love luxury often prefer going to the beach to relax and soak in some sun. Some like to just frolic around in the sand and dip their feet in the warm water. After all, what’s not to love about beaches? Florida is known for its beautiful white sandy beaches and with good reason! Whether you want a quiet spot to relax or a bustling beach with plenty of activities, there is something for everyone here.
These are probably why Florida welcomed about 122 million tourists in 2021, a growth of 54.1% from 2020. There are beaches all around Florida: in the panhandle or those protected in national parks; those in western Florida on the Gulf of Mexico, known for their stunning sunsets; and beaches along the Atlantic known for their surfable waves.
In fact, the beach is so popular, people are even turning to virtual “vacations” if they need to get away for an hour or two. One recent study even shows how simply experiencing the views of a beach virtually can reduce pain. British researchers say that hooking dental patients up with a virtual reality beach setting during their procedure not only lowered anxiety for them, but it even decreased levels of pain!
But no matter what type of beach you prefer, have fun. After all, it’s hard not to be happy when you’re on the beach in Florida. Looking for a relaxing vacation to one of the best beaches in Florida? StudyFinds is here to help. We visited 13 “expert” websites that review Florida beaches and came away with the four most recommended vacation spots across their reports.
There’s a reason why Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota was mentioned in most of the top “Best Beach” lists: it’s just that good! This beach features white sands that are 90% quartz and crystal clear waters, perfect for swimming or simply lounging on the sand.
Southern Living claims that “this tropical key is an easy place to keep the whole family entertained, thanks to tennis and volleyball courts, beachside concession stands, and year-round lifeguards. You may even be able to sneak in a siesta.”
Siesta Key is also a known shopping destination, with various unique shops and plenty of delicious food to try. No wonder people flock to this beach.
Travel + Leisure explains that “you don’t have to fly to the Caribbean to experience white-sand beaches. On Siesta Key — a short drive from downtown Sarasota — you’ll find yourself looking out over the glittering Gulf of Mexico with a cocktail in hand. Talk about relaxation. Spend the day walking the beach and looking for shells or rent a kayak and venture out into the blue, tranquil waters.”
Three separate districts make up Miami Beach. South Beach is the most well-known of the three, home to sandy beaches, swinging palms, and the pastel-colored Art Deco structures that have come to symbolize this unforgettable location and make it so indisputably picturesque.
Conde Nast Traveler hints where to avoid the bustle, saying “the busiest—and most touristy—section runs parallel to Ocean Drive (between 5th and 15th Streets), so locals tend to hang around the quieter patches south of Fifth Street. South Pointe Beach is particularly popular in this area, thanks to minimal development (read: fewer shadows from high-rise hotels) and easy access to the walking trails and sunset views within adjacent South Pointe Park.”
Moreover, South Beach in Miami has been named one of the best beaches in Florida by many expert websites, not only for its gorgeous views and wide beaches but also for its vibrant culture and endless opportunities to have fun.
The New York Times writes that South Beach is the most talked about the beach in the country because, “the beach is wide, white, and bathed by warm aquamarine waves. Palm-fringed Lummus Park, with its volleyball nets and chickee huts for shade, separate the sand from the traffic of Ocean Drive. The beach also has some funkiest lifeguard stands you’ll ever see, pop stars shooting music videos and visitors from all over the world.”
Perched on a barrier island, Clearwater Beach boasts beautiful turquoise waters, pristine sand and a lively downtown scene.
According to U.S. News, “though a trip to the town from the mainland takes just a few minutes, you’ll feel worlds away from the big-city atmosphere you’re leaving behind. This laid-back area is known for its beautiful coastline – U.S. News ranks Clearwater Beach as one of Florida’s best beaches – but you’ll also find several other attractions worth checking out.”
As one of the best travel spots in Florida, Clearwater Beach is renowned for being family-friendly and having some of the best beaches in the state.
There are plenty of activities to do, notes HGTV. “One of America’s finest white-sand beaches, Clearwater Beach spans a narrow, 3-mile stretch of the Pinellas Peninsula on the Gulf Coast. Clearwater’s proximity to Tampa offers visitors ample activities, including beach volleyball, parasailing, a dolphin-watching cruise, and a fun fishing excursion.”
With Naples Pier as its focal point, Naples Beach is a stunning stretch of sugar-sand coastline. Naples Beach is known for its breathtaking views, vibrant culture, and endless opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.
According to Travel + Leisure, “Naples is known for its pearly white sand — a feature you’ll find plenty of at Lowdermilk Park. You can focus on nature — particularly, the beach’s rolling waves and sandy shores — or walk along Millionaires’ Row in the Old Naples area and pick out your dream house.”
No wonder Naples Beach is known as one of the best beaches in Florida. Locals and tourists flocking to this stunning stretch of coastline to enjoy its tranquil waters, gorgeous views, and vibrant culture.
US News writes, “overflowing with golf courses, gourmet restaurants and boutiques, Naples offers travelers an upscale Florida retreat. However, the luxury resorts and costly activities can make a Naples vacation quite expensive. But luckily, nearly all of the beaches are completely free to enjoy. At Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, vacationers can snorkel, spot wildlife, go shelling and more.”
The beaches listed in this article are some of the best beaches in Florida. However, individual preferences may vary, and it is always important to research before visiting any beach.
