Your First Visit
Our goal is to provide you with the most comprehensive care available that fully answers your gynecologic needs.
At your first appointment we explore in significant detail all aspects of your health that are of concern to you. These concerns are then viewed from the perspective of your health in general and from the standpoint of your medical and personal history. Medical documentation submitted by you or your referring physician is carefully reviewed prior to your appointment and is addressed during your visit.
We then do the examination. We prefer to perform a high-resolution ultrasound in the majority of the patients who come to our practice. A diagnostic ultrasound serves as an important supplement to the general gynecologic examination and at times reveals details that are highly significant to the health and wellbeing of patients.
In the comfortable surrounding of our office we summarize the findings of the evaluation and address them from the perspective of your personal and medical goals and the general state of your health.
Treatment plans from the many options that are available in association with Academia of Women’s Health and Endoscopic Surgery are offered as necessary. Most importantly, we combine traditional and innovative approaches to your care and attend respectfully to what matters to you the most.
In the case that you are referred to us by another physician, and in an effort to provide you with the best continuity of care, we effectively communicate with your referring physician regarding your care to ensure appropriate follow up.
Our goal at the time of the annual exam is to ensure that your gynecologic health is well attended to through the most up-to date resources.
Every year when you come to us, we review your previous history and address new personal and medical developments and any ongoing or recent symptoms. The examination is performed in the low-stress, comfortable atmosphere of our office.
During this examination we often employ ultrasound and other tests to increase the yield of diagnostic possibilities available in the practice setting. The results of this ultrasound are discussed with you immediately.
Because we know your time is valuable, we strive to address each of your concerns attentively and fully, and try to minimize the number of visits as much as possible. At times one annual visit in our office provides the care of several regular office visits. Thus, we call our annual visits “Annual Plus.”
Your awareness of your health is of a special matter to us. We hope to guide you towards a holistic approach to your health and to help you to take pro-active steps on the path to self-knowledge and wellness. The findings and the strategy of care we will recommend are discussed thoroughly with careful attention to your immediate and long-term personal and medical needs.
