Routine Care for Women

Preventive care is essential to maintaining good health and preventing serious medical conditions. That’s why we offer a wide range of routine health services for women, including:

  • Annual check-ups: A regular check-up is crucial to detect and prevent any health problems early on.
  • Pap smears: A Pap smear is a screening test to detect cervical cancer in women.
  • Breast exams: Breast exams are used to detect any lumps or other changes in the breast tissue.
  • Mammograms: A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast tissue used to detect breast cancer.
  • STD testing: Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) can be asymptomatic, so testing is important to detect and treat any infections.

Family Planning

Family planning is an important part of women’s health. Our healthcare providers can help you choose the right method of birth control, including pills, patches, injections, IUDs, and more. We also offer comprehensive counseling for couples trying to conceive and fertility treatments for those struggling with infertility.

Menopause Management

Menopause is a natural part of a woman’s life, but it can also bring about uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flashes, mood changes, and sleep disturbances. Our healthcare providers can help manage these symptoms through hormone therapy or other treatment options.

Gynecological Care

Gynecological care is essential for women of all ages. We offer a wide range of services, including:

  • Pelvic exams: Pelvic exams are used to check the health of a woman’s reproductive organs.
  • Pap smears: Pap smears are used to detect cervical cancer in women.
  • STD testing: STD testing is important to detect and treat any infections.
  • HPV testing: HPV testing is used to detect the presence of the human papillomavirus (HPV), which can lead to cervical cancer.
  • Menstrual problems: We can help manage menstrual problems such as heavy bleeding or irregular periods.
  • Vaginal infections: We can diagnose and treat vaginal infections such as yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis.
