Breast Exam

We look for changes in size, shape, and symmetry that are not normal for your age. To screen for breast cancer, we’ll perform a mammography in accordance with the recommendations of the American College of Gynecology (ACOG).

Pelvic Exam

We examine the pelvic area, including the bladder, pelvis, urinary tract, uterus, cervix, and ovaries. We look for normal function and signs of abnormal function. We may also do a pap smear to screen for cancer of the cervix. For more information about pap smears and their importance, read our blog about pap smears.

Talk with Your Gynecologist

The most important part of the exam is the open discussion we have with each other. We need to hear what you notice about changes in your health. We want to answer your questions about your health, ranging from sexual issues to mood to menopause. The more we know, the better we can diagnose and treat so you.
