In brief: Confirm diagnosis

The doctor will need to ask about your symptoms and the time frame and examine you to make a diagnosis.
If lyme disease is likely, you will be treated with an antibiotic. If you are bitten by a tick, it is helpful to save the tick and bring it in to show the doctor.

In brief: Address your needs

Your physician will spend time getting to know you by asking questions about your history.
Bringing any medications you take regularly is helpful. Vital signs will be taken, including weight, height, and blood pressure. A physical exam will then be performed. Women require regular pap tests, pelvic exams, and breast exams. Your visit may include a blood draw or a vaccination.

In brief: It depends...

It depends on the reason for the visit.
Universally, you will have your blood pressure, weight, etc. (vital signs) checked and a history and physical exam will be performed. The questions asked during the history and what is examined may depend on your complaints/questions. When that is done the doctor should answer your questions and provide advice.

In brief: They can help

A good doctor will be kind and professional.
Any primary care doctor who takes care of men will have treated 100s or even 1000s of men with similar concerns. They will take a detailed history, a relevant exam, which often includes a genital exam and possibly a prostate exam and order appropriate tests. Depending on the situation they may offer medications such as viagra (sildenafil).
