Suburban Women’s Healthcare offers comprehensive GYN exams to women at every stage of their life. Our female gynecologists can help young girls and teenagers get more comfortable with their reproductive system. We encourage teenage girls and college age women to stay healthy and make safe choices. We offer guidance to women when choosing their birth control to find the best fit for their active lives.
While there is no doubt there are many, highly professional male gynecologists, some women would rather get their women’s health needs cared for by a female. Someone who can relate to their problems. Oftentimes, women feel more comfortable talking about personal issues and their reproductive health with another woman. Feeling comfortable with your health care provider is important and the female gynecologists at Suburban Women’s Healthcare strive to make you feel comfortable and secure during your visit. We aim to provide you with quick and helpful advice and diagnoses.
As a female gynecologist, we have an advantage over male doctors. We understand how a woman’s body works without having to be trained, allowing us to be more empathetic to our patients. We understand that every patient has unique needs and their own personal situations. While there are many great male gynecologists in the field, choosing a female gynecologist is more comfortable for many women.
We also provide obstetrical care for patients who are open to family planning, pregnancy and motherhood. We also offer a variety of birth control methods for patients who are not open to planning a family in their active life. For more information on our prenatal care or methods of birth control we offer, call us to discuss!
A pap smear is a test performed on a sample of cells from a woman’s cervix to check for any issues or abnormalities such as signs of cervical cancer. It is generally recommended that women should start receiving these tests at the age of 21, typically as a part of an annual women’s health checkup or pelvic exam. As a woman, it is incredibly important to receive annual pap smears from your health provider as it is the best method to detect early signs of cervical cancer when it is most treatable. In addition, they can sometimes also be used to test for HPV and other STD’s.
