Annual well health exams are recommended for all women. During these visits, patients are encouraged to discuss any questions or concerns with their provider. At Women’s OB-GYN, well health appointments include the following:
- Pelvic exam
- Pap smear
- Breast exam
- Patient evaluation of menstrual history and current lifestyle
If necessary, patients will be recommended for various screening tests, including breast cancer, cervical cancer, and colon cancer. Patients will be responsible for scheduling these screening tests, as well as any additional laboratory testing recommended by the physician. If abnormalities are found in the test results, the patient will be phoned, unless other arrangements have been made between the patient and provider. Patients are also welcome to call for test results, but it is requested that at least seven business days have passed, following the test date, before calling. All normal test results will also be mailed.
