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.

DUNEDIN, FL — The sound of bagpipes and bodhrans will resonate through Highlander Park in Dunedin as the nonprofit Dunedin Scottish Arts Foundation hosts the annual Dunedin Celtic Music Craft Beer Festival Saturday, Nov. 19 between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
In addition to live music and Highland dancers, this year's festival will provide a sampling of the Scottish Heavy Athletics competition featured at the annual Dunedin Highland Games and Festival held each April, including the caber toss, sheaf toss and stone throw.
There will also be craft beer and a selection of wines, Celtic-themed vendors as well as an antique British car show at the park.
"This year we are excited to put on the best Celtic music event ever," said Eric MacNeill, president of the Dunedin Scottish Arts Foundation. “We encourage our loyal supporters and new friends to come out and experience what true Celtic fun looks like."
The Dunedin Scottish Arts Foundation raises money to support the Scottish Arts programs in Dunedin including Highland dancing, the middle school and high school pipe band programs and the City of Dunedin Pipe Band.
"Supporting our education programs is more important than ever," MacNeill said. "There has been a lot of challenges in the past couple of years, but our support of the Celtic arts is unwavering. We are a nonprofit organization where every penny we make goes back into the Scottish arts community in our area."
The schedule includes:
Music and athletics will finish at 5 p.m. and the event will close up at 6 p.m.
There will be limited on-site parking in Highlander Park and at Dunedin High School with a complimentary shuttle service. There is no charge for parking.
Tickets at the gate are $20.
Bring a blanket or lawn chair. Pets and coolers are prohibited.

A Tampa company with more than 100 years of experience in the hospitality sector plays a key role in a major-league hotel project.
As the Tampa Bay Rays continue to look for a new home around Tampa and St. Petersburg, one of the team’s top rivals on the field is doubling down in Dunedin.
The Toronto Blue Jays have committed to rent large blocks of rooms at a hotel being built mostly for the team to use during spring training and during the regular season when players are in town rehabbing and the minor leagues are playing.
The project has been in the works for some time, and Dunedin city officials approved the development.
Then, in late November, the hotel received a big boost from $14 million in financing arranged by Spirides Hotel Finance Co. The Tampa-based family owned and operated firm may not have a baseball pedigree, but it knows a thing or two about running hotels.
“It was just a deal that made really good financial sense,” says company president Harry G. Spirides. “I took it out to the capital markets, spoke to my contacts with major banks around the country and located a bank in the Midwest that was extremely interested in the project.”
As its name implies, Spirides Hotel Finance specializes in arranging financing and consulting with hoteliers. But it comes at its business from an insider’s perspective.
That’s because the family ran hotels in the South for about 100 years before Harry Spirides started the finance company six years ago. In fact, Spirides’ father George in 1970 helped a friend design and manage his first hotel. The friends name was Cecil B. Day and his Savannah, Georgia hotel was called the Day’s Inn.
Harry Spirides grew up like a lot of children raised in the hospitality business: he worked his way up from washing dishes, working as a desk clerk, managing properties and running the family’s the 205-room Ocean Plaza Beach Resort at Savannah Beach on Tybee Island, Georgia.
The family owned the resort for 50 years and sold it in 2014 for a reported $13.54 million. Today it’s called the Hotel Tybee.
Today, the third-generation hotelier runs the finance company. Working with him are his mother, Frances, sister, Jeannie, and daughters Katie and Ava.
A part of him longs for the interactions with guests, especially the regulars, and the employees who worked for the family for years or even decades. “I miss that sometimes," he says. “But at the same time, now I can. I can use all my experiences to help other hoteliers.”
Spirides Financial got involved with the Blue Jays hotel project in Dunedin after being introduced to its developer, Doug Anderson.
The idea for the hotel came soon after the Blue Jays built a $100 million, 65-acre player development complex in Dunedin that includes six fields, a covered practice field and batting cages, as well sports science labs, training rooms and other amenities inside a 115,000-square-foot building. Just a couple of miles away is the team’s 5,500-seat spring training and minor league stadium, TD Ballpark.
The team has held spring training in the Pinellas County city since 1977.
With the training complex complete, the team began looking for a place for its players to stay when they came town, whether to train, practice, play or get back in shape.
What Anderson, who runs Coastal ICF Construction Services Inc., came up with is a 90-room hotel on the Dunedin Causeway. The space will be mostly used by players, though there will be some room for the public.
The hotel itself will be two different buildings built on separate locations and in phases. According to a city staff report on the proposal, the hotel will be built at 491 Causeway Blvd. and 469 Causeway Blvd. The properties are adjoining and are a total of 1.6 acres. The top two floors of the complex will be for guests, while the ground floor will be for parking.
Spirides says construction began earlier this year on the smaller of the two buildings, the Grant Street Inn, and work on the second, the J Hotel, will begin soon. Each will share standard amenities like a pool, dining area and fitness center along with upscale finishes, furnishings, security, and technology.
Spirides got involved in the deal when he met Anderson. “Because we specialize in financing hotel projects nationwide, and we’re based here in the Tampa Bay area, we were introduced,” he says.
What followed was a months-long relationship that began with a long series of meetings while Spirides’ did his due diligence, asking about details, hunting down documentation on the transaction, looking at the developer’s financial capabilities and credit as well conducting feasibility studies.
Just because a Major League Baseball team was involved with the project, didn’t make it any easier to find the financing. On a national scale, the hotel financing sector is tightening, a byproduct of rising interest rates and recessionary worries.
But it did help in one solid, unexpected way.
Spirides compares the Blue Jays’ involvement to the relationship airlines have with hotels near airports. With crews coming in and out every day, most airlines contract with hotels at airports for blocks of rooms negotiated at bulk rates. This guarantees fight crews rooms then need and provides hotel owners consistent revenue.
The deal the Blue Jays have with Anderson is similar in that the team has signed a contract guaranteeing and securing major blocks for years to come.
Having the guaranteed revenue for a number of years helped banks get to yes faster.
What Spirides found for the developer is a construction-to-permanent mortgage financing package with a bank in the Midwest for 20 years at 1 point over prime.
“Really, at the end of the day,” he says. “It’s just a typical hotel development financing opportunity for banks and the fundamentals were there.”

FLORIDA — With an arctic blast chilling even Florida by Friday night, temperatures are expected to drop to the low 30s for several nights. Patch has tips on how to keep your pipes from freezing and potentially bursting.
Just how cold is it going to get during this pre-Christmas winter storm? The Tampa region is under a freeze watch, with sub-freezing temperatures as low as 30 degrees possible from 3 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.
A second freeze watch, with temperatures as low as 31 degrees, will be in effect from 3 a.m. to 10 a.m. Sunday.
The watches cover Polk, Hardee, Highlands, coastal Pasco, coastal Hillsborough, inland Hillsborough and inland Manatee counties.
Frost and freeze conditions could kill crops, other sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing, the NWS said.
It's important to know how to prevent your home's water pipes from freezing. Frozen water pipes can be messy and expensive to fix, but if you have a frozen faucet, you can safely thaw out a water line without burning down the house.
Joseph Gonzalez, president of the Henry Gonzalez Plumbing Company, told WFLA the two main ways to keep your pipes safe in the cold are wrapping them in foam and letting faucets.
He suggested purchasing Armaflex foam at a home improvement store and wrapping it around pipes. Thick blankets and cardboard boxes can also protect pipes during a cold spell.
Or, let warm water drip overnight, preferably from a faucet on an outside wall.
The Red Cross offers these tips to prevent pipes from freezing:
If you have a pipe that bursts, AAA shared these tips to help you file and manage insurance claims.
Water expands as it freezes. This expansion puts extreme pressure on whatever is containing it, including metal or plastic pipes. Pipes that freeze most frequently are those that are exposed to severe cold, like outdoor water faucets, swimming pool supply lines, water sprinkler lines, and water supply pipes in unheated interior areas like basements and crawl spaces, attics, garages, or kitchen cabinets. Also, pipes that run against exterior walls that have little or no insulation are also subject to freezing.
