Women's Health Q&A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health is medical care that meets the unique health and wellness needs of women. The Premier Primary Care team screens for, diagnoses, and treats diseases specific to women and offers preventive medicine to help you avoid future complications.

What are women’s health screenings?

Health issues the Premier Primary Care team might screen for include:

  • High cholesterol 
  • High blood pressure
  • Breast, cervical, skin, and colorectal cancers
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Poor vision and hearing
  • STDs
  • Lung cancer in smokers

The team at Premier Primary Care may also screen you for nutritional deficiencies or thyroid problems, depending on your symptoms and risk factors.

What happens during women’s health exams?

During a women’s health appointment at Premier Primary Care, the team checks your blood pressure, pulse, weight, and other vital signs. They review your medical history and symptoms, and complete a comprehensive physical exam.

During a physical, your primary care specialist evaluates your eyes, ears, nose, throat, breathing, heartbeat, abdomen, and reflexes. They might complete a pelvic exam and Pap test to screen for signs of cervical cancer.

Your doctor may recommend blood tests, imaging procedures, or other diagnostic tests to detect illnesses or diseases. If you require a sports or work physical, your doctor can sign the appropriate physical exam forms.

Will I require treatment?

You might require treatment after a women’s health exam, depending on your health and results from diagnostic testing. The Premier Primary Care team might recommend one of the following treatments:

  • Over-the-counter or prescription medications
  • Dietary supplements
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Allergy or asthma treatments
  • Further diagnostic testing
  • Minor surgical procedures

Depending on your lifestyle habits, your provider might recommend weight loss, diet or exercise changes, stress reduction, or smoking cessation. They can refer you to a qualified specialist in your area for complex or serious medical problems. 

You may not require treatment if you’re in good health. Premier Primary Care can educate you about disease prevention and offers vaccines. They also provide aesthetic services like laser and radiofrequency skin rejuvenation to reduce lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and other signs of aging.
