For peace of mind and to ensure you stay healthy, we recommend an annual examination. You start by filling out an intake survey to provide the doctor with vital information about your health history. As HIPAA* laws require, we adhere to strict standards to keep your personal and private information just that… private and confidential. Your physical exam is as gentle and non-invasive as possible and may include a pelvic exam, breast exam and various tests (such as urine test and pap smear) with samples sent to the laboratory for accurate readings. You are notified on a timely basis of all findings, positive or not. Normal results mean you can relax until next year, remembering to do your monthly breast self exams. We address any problem areas together as a team, you and your doctor, to ensure you regain and maintain good health.
* HIPAA is the acronym for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act that was passed by the United States Congress in 1996.
