We provide comprehensive healthcare to women of all ages, including adolescents, with a focus on preventive health.
A woman's health exam includes a complete medical history and a comprehensive physical exam. At that time, you and your doctor can discuss important issues such as timing of Pap smears, breast exams, mammography, osteoporosis, midlife hormonal conditions (menopause, premenstrual syndrome, contraception, etc.) dietary issues, and other general concerns.
Remember that the leading cause of death and disability in the mature female population is cardiovascular disease, not cancer. Discuss your cholesterol, blood pressure and exercise program with your doctor.
You and your doctor will share decision-making about many of the health issues that are so important for your present and future well-being.
Novant Health South Park Family Physicians provides additional women's services such as:
- Pap smear
- IUD placement
- Nexplanon insertion
