CNMs are primary care providers for women. This includes conducting a well woman exam each year. A well woman visit is not just a physical exam, though it includes one. It includes a head to toe, pelvic and breast exams. It may include a pap smear and screening for infection if needed.
It also gives you the opportunity to talk about your body, your stress, your nutrition, your mood, your medications, your sex life, your cycles, and other concerns. Based on your history, recommended screenings, and needs, we can order labs, refer for procedures, and physician care if needed.
We can make a plan to follow up as needed to help you achieve your health goals.
