Services

No matter what stage of life you are in, we are here to help you live it in good health. We diagnose and treat a wide range of female disorders with the most effective, natural and holistic treatments available.

First Teen OB-GYN Appointment

As girls grow into teens, it’s important that they receive appropriate medical care, including annual wellness exams. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) recommends that young women have their first visit with an obstetrician-gynecologist (OB/GYN) between the ages of 13 and 15. In most cases, patients can receive effective treatment without an invasive exam. If your daughter is struggling with irregular or painful cycles, we can help her heal naturally without birth control because, unlike traditional birth control treatments, our treatment option does not suppress normal hormones.

Well-Woman Exam

We recommend all women have a well-woman exam, annually. This allows us to monitor your health and detect changes or developing conditions to prevent or manage problems early. The visit also gives you an opportunity to check in with your physician about any health concerns, from family planning to menopause. Fitness, diet and marital intimacy are important in helping you feel your best emotionally. We encourage you to make time to make this important investment in your own health and well-being.

Menopausal Care

Menopause is a natural process in the progression of life, with each woman’s experience uniquely her own. However it affects you, we are experienced in providing excellent care for menopausal and peri-menopausal women, using the most current treatments available to provide the right care for you. If you are entering or are in any phase of menopause, we invite you to visit with one of our physicians who will provide you with information you need to understand the changes you are experiencing, as well as the many treatment options now available to help you manage the symptoms

Common symptoms include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Insomnia
  • Night sweats without illness
  • Mood changes and uncharacteristic irritability
  • Impaired concentration
  • Cessation of menstruation

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical hormones are safe and more effective because they are biologically identical to the molecular structure of the hormones found in your body. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is safer and has fewer side effects than synthetic hormones.  Bioidentical hormones can be used to replace the declining hormones as a woman transitions through menopause to help alleviate her symptoms.  It can also be used cooperatively with a woman’s cycle to restore the low hormones during her cycles back to a normal level.  They can be used to treat diseases such as PMS, abnormal bleeding, PCOS, or inferitility.
