To Pap Or Not To Pap?

There are many terms used to identify the many generations active in today’s society and it’s hard to keep track of them all. No matter where you fall, we’ve got you covered! We care for all the generations.

If you try to simplify a little here is what you may come up with:

Each generation has varying economical, cultural and health needs. Your gynecologist can help you sort out what screening or wellness tests are needed based on your health history and age. An annual wellness examination is suggested for all ladies! Pap smears, mammograms, sexually transmitted infection testing, colon screening, bone density testing, immunizations, etc. standards vary widely. We follow the guidelines outlined by our governing body, The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG). Don’t worry we will help you figure it out. Much of your health maintenance information is securely recorded in your electronic health record and accessible to all your providers. Make sure you are up to date with your testing! See your doctor every year.
