The routine GYN exam is an excellent opportunity for the female patient to receive education and counseling on healthy lifestyle practices and to participate in preventative health screenings.
The flow of the annual GYN visit is usually based on a patient's age, sexual status, and risk factors. Preventative health screenings are offered and include age-appropriate imaging and laboratory testing, screening for substance use, and screening for depression. The annual is recommended every year, especially for patients who are prescribed contraception.
If you have any more questions regarding routine screenings please call our office and speak to a member of your care team.
