Prenatal care and delivery of normal and high-risk pregnancies
Having a healthy pregnancy is one of the best ways to promote a healthy birth. Getting early and regular prenatal care improves the chances of a healthy pregnancy. This care can begin even before pregnancy with a preconception care visit to our office.

A pregnancy is considered high-risk when there are potential complications that could affect the mother, the baby, or both. High-risk pregnancies require management by a specialist to help ensure the best outcome for the mother and baby.

Yearly gynecological exam
You should have an exam every year to look for signs of possible disease and to keep an ongoing record of your health as you get older and our needs change. Pap tests may be performed annually or every other year, depending on your age and other risk factors. You can discuss the frequency of Pap tests during your appointment.
Contraception and birth control
Contraception is a very personal decision based on your lifestyle, your sexual activity and your own personal preferences. Each type of birth control offers different types of advantages, and today, there are more options than ever to enable you to take control of your life, including pills, diaphragms, condoms and more. During your visit, you’ll learn about all the different options so you can choose the form of birth control that works best for your needs and offers the most comfortable and most convenient solution.
Pelvic pain management
The pelvic region comprises many structures, and as a result, there are many possible causes for acute and chronic pelvic pain. Some types of pelvic pain can emanate from issues affecting the pelvic floor, including uterine and vaginal prolapse, and sometimes, conditions occurring elsewhere, such as in the digestive system, may cause referred pelvic pain.
Menstrual Irregularities
An abnormal period is a period that occurs outside the normal range of the menstrual cycle. For most women, menstruation occurs every 28 days and each period lasts from five to seven days. While some slight variations are normal, periods that vary significantly from these ranges are considered abnormal and can be a sign of an underlying problem. Excessive bleeding or very light bleeding can also be considered, as can spotting between periods. Some birth control products can alter the normal menstruation cycle, and these changes are not necessarily considered abnormal.
Evaluation & Treatment of Abnormal Pap Smear
A Pap smear test is a simple procedure that looks for abnormal cell changes in the cervix. The cervix is the lowest part of the uterus, located at the top of your vagina.

If your Pap results are unclear or inconclusive, the next step will likely be a colposcopy. A colposcopy is a procedure in which your doctor uses a microscope to inspect your cervix. Your doctor will use a special solution during the colposcopy to help differentiate normal areas from abnormal ones.

The colposcopy is a procedure to look at your cervix and vagina through a microscope to identify areas that appear abnormal. During a colposcopy your provider uses a colposcope, which is an instrument that looks like a large microscope to obtain a magnified view of your cervix.

Your provider may recommend a colposcopy if your pap test or HPV testing has shown abnormal results. This procedure is used to determine if further treatment is needed for possible precancerous or cancerous lesions of the cervix and/or surrounding areas.

Fibroid management & treatment
Many women with uterine fibroids experience no signs or symptoms, or only mildly annoying signs and symptoms that they can live with. If that’s the case for you, watchful waiting could be the best option.

Medications for uterine fibroids target hormones that regulate your menstrual cycle, treating symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding and pelvic pressure. They don’t eliminate fibroids, but may shrink them.

Urinary problems
Urinary problems are sure to be distressing and often embarrassing. An infection of the bladder and urinary tract often leads to discomfort and the need for frequent, painful urination.

Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are common in women of all ages, especially between the ages of 40-60. For many women, the symptoms come and go

Sexually Transmitted Infections
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infectious diseases transmitted through sexual contact. They are among the most common infectious diseases – with the United States having the highest rates of STDs in the industrialized world.

Most STDs affect both men and women, but in many cases the health problems they cause can be more severe for women. If a pregnant woman has an STD, it can cause serious health problems for the baby.
