When performed regularly, screenings done at your routine visit are meant to detect problems early. All of our practitioners perform well woman exams which generally include the following:

  • Blood pressure
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Physical exam
  • Breast exam
  • Pelvic exam
  • Pap smear (when indicated)
  • Discussion of lifestyle, birth control, exercise, diet, etc.
  • Discussion of any problems that are reported by you or detected on exam.
In most instances, we recommend that a woman be seen for a routine gyn exam annually unless otherwise indicated by the practitioner. Insurance coverage may vary for routine visits and we encourage you to become familiar with your policy.

The following are examples of specific health concerns that may not be covered as part of your visit:
– New or changed headache pattern
– Abdominal Pain
– Pelvic Pain
– Anxiety or Depression
– General Fatigue
– Sleeping Problems
– Irregular Periods
– Preconception Counseling/Infertility
– Significant changes in your chronic health problem

An additional office visit may be charged for a discussion or anything outside of a normal annual exam which may result in a copay or additional charges.
