There is no benefit to most of these extra titles in the USA although there are associations for those who do more of this work. I cannot comment on the value of these certificates in other countries.

Beyond a testosterone level, it is unclear what these other tests you had have to do with ED.  The idea that the penis is not getting nerve signals is possible, but this does not limit treatment and is not measured by MRI.

I would suggest you find a qualified urologist or use a university Medical Center for better advice and treatment.
