  • In the patient care area, a nurse will take your vital signs and ask a series of questions to help us better understand your overall health. These questions include drug allergies, past surgeries, your reproductive history, family background, medical history and social habits. We will also ask about current medications and current gynecological conditions.
  • We may ask for a urine specimen to do a urinalysis test to better assess your health.
  • You will meet with your physician in his or her office, not an exam room, to discuss your health and go over any issues or concerns.
  • Next, you will move to a room for the exam, where a gown and sheet will be provided. A nurse will assist the physician as she or he conducts a breast exam, listens to your heart and lungs with a stethoscope. If indicated, a pelvic exam may then be done. If it is the appropriate time, we may do a pap smear as well.
  • Depending on your age and medical history, we may do a mammogram and and/or breast ultrasound. This is conveniently done in our office by our staff.
  • If any of the test results are abnormal or raise a concern, a physician will discuss the results with you.
  • If any other lab work is necessary, we will do the bloodwork in our lab.
  • After your exam is completed, you can schedule any follow-up appointment and pay your co-pay.
