Women's Health Screenings

We try to address annual screening things that women need to insure that their health is adequate, such as setting them up for their mammograms, bone densities for women that are older that are at risk for Osteoporosis, Colonoscopies if they are over fifty, providing them with evaluations of their annual blood work if necessary to rule out problems such as high cholesterol, and of course screening them and treating them for minor conditions such as hypertension and mild cases of diabetes.

Our younger women usually start doing their annual screening evaluations around twenty one and we continue using pap smears as our main way to rule out cervical cancer but we also check for human papillomavirus now with our screening.

As they get older, they would probably still stick to annual screening evaluations, but mammography would be offered after age forty and the other screening services depending on their age group and what their other health concerns are, they might need them more or less frequently.
