The Importance of a Well Woman Exam

Essentially, the misnomer that a well woman visit is a simple Pap smear prevents many women from scheduling their regular appointments. But, by scheduling a well-woman examination, patients are ensuring their total health and wellness. Based on personal and family history, OB GYN assesses the ideal treatment plan for each patient.

Routine well women checkups can help save lives. Patients who learn their body’s “normal” early in life are far more likely to notice issues and seek medical help. Moreover, knowing the personal risk factors from an early age enables women to be more open about their health and take preventative measures to fight off long-term health issues.
