Well-Woman Exam

It is important that women understand their bodies, how to perpetuate good health and how to identify the risks that lead to diminished health and well-being. Many areas of a woman’s health are reviewed at this recommended yearly check-up, including:

  • Screening for cancer of the breast, cervix (Pap smear, HPV) and other gynecological cancers
  • A pelvic exam to check for abnormalities of the reproductive organs
  • A breast exam
  • Additional screening recommendations such as bone density testing and colonoscopy depending on a patient’s age
  • Birth control counseling if applicable
  • Prevention of sexually transmitted infections and testing if needed
  • Discussion about menopause if applicable
  • Wellness counseling

Please contact practice directly for information on insurance coverage for this annual exam.
