THE IMPORTANCE OF ANNUAL OB-GYN EXAMS, Aren Gottlieb, MD (Video)
It is the standard of care for women to see a gynecologist once a year, and it is a great opportunity to undergo a comprehensive exam. At MFMA, we start the exam speaking to the patient and going over their history. This includes not only their medical or surgical problems or medications but we also review sexual, reproductive and social history.
An OB-GYN exam is a great opportunity for you to discuss any sexual issues or things that you may not be comfortable discussing with a general doctor. It is also a great time for us to screen for sexually transmitted infections and evaluate breast, cervical, and reproductive health.
If you are due for your annual OB-GYN exam, contact us today to schedule your appointment! We would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
