Healthy Lifestyle and Preventative Care for Women
We encourage a healthy lifestyle for all our patients. We provide counseling on diet, exercise, weight loss, smoking cessation, maintaining healthy bones, and protecting yourself against sexually transmitted diseases. We encourage our patients to seek routine care from a primary care doctor, dermatologist, dentist, and eye doctor, as well as have routine recommended screening tests to screen for cervical cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, elevated blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and heart disease. Recommended guidelines for when to begin screening and how often to have these tests performed vary depending on which professional association you seek for advice, such as the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG), the American Cancer Society (ACS), or the US Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF).
