Q: What is The Doctor Says?
The Doctor Says Inc. is a doctor-led company that develops engaging and educational mobile health apps including The Predicktor, an entertaining antidote to the widespread insecurity, anxiety and dissatisfaction among men over their penis size.
Q: What is The Predicktor?
The Predicktor is a mobile app that uses a calculator, based on scientific studies, to predict penis length using personal stats like height and finger length.
The app offers instant access to information, from the useful to the entertaining. For instance, men and their partners can compare his penis length to published norms around the world! If your penis is between 3.5 and 7.5 inches, you’re in the company of 95% of men worldwide. The app also shares informative articles on men’s health and sexuality.
This app was created as a fun and factual catalyst for discussion, to relieve anxiety and correct myths through education.
Q: Why did you choose to create this app?
The angst and insecurity suffered by many men due to simple misunderstanding of the facts about penis size is what drove the creation of The Predicktor. The app was designed to be social in nature – taking the topic out of hallway whispers to openly engaging peer groups with a few laughs.
Q: Whom are you trying to reach? Women? Men? Younger or older? US/Canada/international?
Everyone. The app is relevant to every age, sex and nationality.
Q: How does the app work?
Users input measurements such as index finger length, height and buttock size. Based on the information provided, the app predicts how long his penis is. The app uses only physical attributes proven by scientific research to be associated with penis length and discards all others, like race and shoe size! You may not be sure of his size until you get a glance, but up to that point, The Predicktor is the closest you will get to knowing!
Q: Are a lot of men worried about their penis size?
Anxiety and misinformation about penis size is quite common. This is unsurprising given all the myths about this topic. The Predicktor seeks to bust those myths and relieve many men’s anxiety while having a little fun. Many users will find that, contrary to what they’ve been told, they are perfectly “normal,” and that porn stars are the true exception.
Q: What are some of the common myths you correct?
Among the little-known revelations brought to light by The Predicktor:
Q: Does the Predicktor serve a serious function, or is it really more about entertainment?
It does both. The app uses humour to engage and inform users. It also brings male sexual health into the open as the app is designed to engage people in groups. By doing this, we deflate the lies and myths that confuse and often concern people. We provide real, science-based information, not lies and misinformation designed to stoke angst and sell sham male enhancement products. We hope the app provides users with a better outlook on male – and female – sexuality.
Q: How accurate is the Predicktor?
The calculator predicts length based on measurements of other body parts, in accordance with published research. Those relationships are not always consistent, so the best the Predicktor can do is come up with a near guess. The app is not intended to be specific or 100% accurate. The real point is to have fun, ease any concerns a man may have, and inform people.
Q: What are your qualifications to create this app?
As a family and ER physician with more than a decade of clinical experience, I have treated tens of thousands of people for all types of health challenges. I have a special interest in mental and emergent disorders, and have fostered an interest in presenting medical information through mobile platforms. Many of my male patients of all ages expressed penis-related insecurity.
Q: If men have serious concerns about their penis, shouldn’t they just go straight to their doctor?
The Predicktor is unique in that it approaches men’s sexual help in a manner atypical to a doctor’s office and actually draws the topic out into the open, encouraging healthy discussion amongst peers.
The app helps men and women to educate themselves on an awkward subject, to have fun doing it and is intended to break down barriers to discussion. Anyone with concerns should talk to their doctor.
Q: Why did you create medical-related apps?
As a practicing family doctor and ER physician, I saw a need to help people gain better access to medical information on a platform they are most likely to use – smart phones. I wanted to get information to people who might need it in an easy-to-use and engaging way.
Using an interactive format, the app provides self-directed learning that is rooted in science.
