Our services include:

  • Comprehensive OB services, including expertise in maternal fetal medicine to manage high-risk pregnancies and deliveries.
  • Infertility services
  • Gynecologic surgical procedures
  • Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery including da Vinci Robotic Surgery
  • Treatment of abnormal pap smears and colposcopy
  • Annual well woman exams
  • Urogynecology services for women with pelvic floor relaxation (bladder/uterine prolapse), urinary/fecal incontinence issues and overactive bladder.

Proactively scheduling a well-woman visit each year is a great way for women to take charge of their health. Annual women’s wellness exams typically include discussion of health topics relevant to your age and risk factors, exams and screenings, and immunizations.

  • First well-woman visit at the age of first intercourse/sexual activity
  • Pelvic exams are recommended by age 21

Our family medicine doctors and gynecologists provide well-women examinations.

Other important women's health checkups:

  • Breast screenings (perform breast self-exams between well-woman visits)

Breast self-exams and mammograms are critical for early breast cancer detection. If you notice any changes in your breasts, such as a new lump or skin changes, consult your doctor. Also, ask your doctor when to begin mammograms based on risk factors and personal history.

Specializing in customizing your care plan based on your age and health goals
