Women’s Health Q & A

What is the purpose of a routine women’s health exam?

Yearly routine women’s health examinations, also known as well-woman exams, help Dr. Bazel and his team to discover any problems you may have early enough to treat them before they become more serious health issues. These exams also provide special screenings, like glucose tests, for women at every stage of life, as there are many health conditions that are particular to women.

Some specific female health concerns include:

  • Breast cancer and breast health
  • Gynecology issues
  • Infertility and pregnancy
  • Migraines
  • Sexual health
  • Menopause changes and concerns
  • Urinary issues

What does a women’s health exam include?

A women’s health exam with Dr. Bazel and his team includes a comprehensive assessment of your overall health and medical history, as well as addressing any concerns or symptoms you’re currently experiencing. During your physical examination, Dr. Bazel and his qualified team check your blood pressure and vital signs. He also performs a pelvic exam to check that your internal reproductive organs are a normal shape and size.

Part of your pelvic exam may include a Pap test to check for any abnormalities that may lead to cancer of your cervix.
