Personalized Gynecology Care. Every Step of the Way.
At Women’s Health Care of Garden City we believe individualized gynecologic care makes a difference. We understand that health care today offers many options which can sometimes be overwhelming and confusing. Our approach is different than other practices because our priority is helping you feel comfortable while providing the most up-to-date care possible.
At Women’s Health Care of Garden City, we believe that getting to know our patients and understanding their concerns allows us to explore other less invasive options first, rather than resorting to potentially unneeded surgery. We do have an extensive and talented referral network for necessary surgical procedures, however we do offer many non-surgical gynecological treatments in our office, including:
- Dysfunctional uterine bleeding
- Heavy bleeding
- Hormone imbalances
- Ovarian cysts
- Premenstrual syndrome
- Urinary Tract Infections
- Uterine polyps
Annual Gynecology Exams
Preventative care is an essential part of your health. Annual exams allow your physician to screen for infection, inflammation, disease and other reproductive health issues that may arise. Consistent care is one of the best ways your doctor can monitor and assess any changes that may have occurred from the year before. We offer both annual wellness exams and PAP smears. During a PAP smear your physician will take a tissue sample from your cervix to examine any abnormalities. While pelvic exams are especially recommended for sexually active individuals over 18 years of age, we also offer adolescent gynecology.
We believe that through compassion, understanding, and kindness we can help create a different experience for women’s healthcare. We have staff members on call 24/7 to assist you with any questions you may have. If you are suffering with any of the conditions above, or would like to schedule a consultation, call us today.
Part of an annual exam may also include discussing your options when it comes to birth control methods. There are many types of birth control from birth control pills, intrauterine devices (IUDs), implants, patches, shots, and more permanent methods such as tubal ligations. The type of birth control that’s best for you is a personal decision that our team is committed to help you make.
At Women’s Health of Garden City, we believe that knowledge is key to your care. If you are worried about sexually transmitted diseases, we can help. We complete STD testing in the comfort and privacy of our office.
We offer confidential STD testing in our office as part of your annual visit or as needed at any time. If you are sexually active, you risk the chance of contracting a sexually transmitted disease through skin-to-skin contact or exchange of bodily fluids. If you believe you have been in contact with a partner who might have an infection, it is important to contact your physician as soon as possible. Early testing and treatment are important in ensuring proper recovery.
