Our physicians provide comprehensive gynecological care for women from adolescence through adulthood. Regular gynecological care throughout a woman’s life is important for her overall health and well-being. 


+ Mammogram

Our in-office 3D mammography service allows you to have your annual screening mammogram as part of your annual Well Woman exam or during any appointment. Almost all insurance companies cover 3D mammograms. However, insurance plans vary so we advise all patients to check their specific plan details.

A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast tissue that is used to screen for breast cancer. Mammograms may be used as a means to detect any changes in healthy breast tissue, or they may be used to investigate any lumps that look concerning. Certains risks and limitations apply to mammograms, so we encourage you to discuss with your physician what is best for you.

+ Well-Woman Care

A well-woman visit is a great opportunity for your physician to take a thorough medical history, talk with you about healthy lifestyle behaviors, and perform various exams, tests, and screenings. At this visit, you may have a breast and pelvic exam, screen for breast and cervical cancer, and talk about your reproductive health and wellness.

+ Pap Smear

Pap smears are often performed during a pelvic exam as a way to screen for cervical cancer. During a pap smear, the cells around the cervix are swabbed and then analyzed for any abnormalities. Pap smears are an important, non-invasive way to detect any cervical changes early on. Pap smears are typically recommended between ages 21 and 65.

+ Infertility Treatments

Infertility is the inability to conceive after one year of trying. Approximately 15% of couples struggle with infertility. Fortunately, there are a handful of tools and resources couples can utilize to help increase their chances of becoming pregnant.

One option is the oral medication, Clomiphene citrate (Clomid). Clomiphene is used to stimulate ovulation in women who have irregular or absent ovulation. It works by triggering the brain to release the hormones necessary for ovulation to occur. Learn more about Clomiphene.
