What happens during women’s health exams?

During a women’s health exam, the Whitelake Family Medicine team reviews your medical history and symptoms. They weigh you and check your blood pressure, pulse, and temperature. 

Your family medicine provider completes a comprehensive physical exam, including a pelvic exam and breast exam, to assess your overall health. 

They might recommend a Pap test to screen for cervical cancer or an ultrasound, urine tests, blood testing, or heart-function tests. 

If you need treatment, your women’s health specialist offers a variety of potential options, including counseling, medication prescriptions, psychotherapy, medical weight loss, and further diagnostic testing. You might also choose preventive medicine services, such as vaccinations or birth control.
