We encourage an annual well-woman visit for our patients. The primary purpose of this visit is to promote wellness. We will cover general topics of contraception, menstrual regularity, and plans for childbearing. We can also discuss concerns related to sexual health and sexually transmitted diseases. It is also our goal to discuss general topics such as diet, exercise, sleep, and immunizations that might be needed.
What Happens During A Wellness Visit?
Part of the routine well visit is to discuss recommended guidelines for routine screening tests – these can include Pap smear testing, mammograms, colonoscopy, and DEXA scans. The individual recommendations will, of course, be based on age and circumstance. If you have any concerns that are beyond the scope of well care, it will be suggested that you return for a follow-up visit such that we can adequately address your needs and provide you with the time and attention you require.
