Health Maintenance

A core part of our specialty is to help patients stay healthy and to address health challenges at an early stage for optimal treatment. To that end, we offer annual health maintenance visits for all ages. Counseling during these visits cover common issues, such as contraception, weight loss/gain, smoking cessation, depression and issues of sexuality. The physical exam includes performance of a Pap smear with HPV reflex and a breast exam by a women's health specialist. With this visit, we routinely offer screening tests, including those for sexually transmitted infections, HPV, cholesterol and glucose. This is all done through our convenient office laboratory. Lastly, we offer appropriate referrals including those for mammograms, bone density tests (DEXA) and screening colonoscopies. Our goal is the same as yours...to keep you healthy!
