WELLNESS. The annual gynecologic exam is a vital component of a woman’s wellness. A general screening exam every year includes a pelvic exam to discern abnormalities of the ovaries, uterus, vagina, and vulva, breast exam, pap smear and judicious human papillomavirus screening as well as screening mammography and colorectal cancer screening. We can also advise on appropriate sexually transmitted disease screening and treatment, menstrual irregularities, family planning, contraception, menopause and individualized postmenopausal hormonal therapies. In addition, we understand the role of nutrition, exercise, stress reduction and counseling in contributing to one’s overall wellness.
