Who should visit a gynecologist?
We help women of all ages, ranging from young adults to older postmenopausal patients.
We help our patients with issues that tend to vary with age and the stage of life they are at. We often help young women with contraception, bleeding disorders, pap smears, pregnancy and fertility issues. Older women may have many of the same issues, but we often help them with difficulties associated with menopause.
What do gynecologists actually do?
Gynecologist treat problems and diseases of the female reproductive system.
Your gynecologist will start by taking a medical history, followed by a physical examination and an ultrasound scan. Other procedures may include hormone profiling, biopsies, and bacterial swabs. In addition to diagnosing reproductive illnesses, gynecologists also assess whether you have any high-risk factors for certain diseases.
When you go to see one of our gynecologists, you can feel confident you have had a thorough check-up.
