Comprehensive Exams For Your Wellbeing
to help ensure our patients’ continued reproductive health by identifying any potential gynecological problems before they become serious concerns. We recommend that most women begin undergoing regular well woman exams every year once they are over 18 years old or once they become or think they may become sexually active. In cases where a patient has a history of certain specific health issues or underlying conditions we may recommend modified schedules, and a teen can be seen starting at age 14 if necessary to address various concerns not normally handled by pediatricians.
A Typical Well Woman Exam May Include
A well woman exam may also be part of an overall health examination
that includes an assessment of the patient’s blood pressure, weight, and body mass index, as well as a palpation of the abdomen and lymph nodes. This can be an excellent opportunity to bring any questions or concerns that you have to our attention, so that you may get a better understanding of exactly what you need to do to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Kristine Gould and the rest of the experienced medical staff at Gynecology of Gwinnett make patient comfort a top priority and will do everything within their power to ensure that all exams are performed with the utmost privacy, discretion, and comfort.
In addition to the specialized services that we provide during a Well Woman Exam we also perform a variety of routine labs. We believe that regular health screenings are one of the best ways to ensure that you enjoy optimal health for many years to come.
