What happens during women’s health appointments?

When you arrive for a women’s health checkup at Joel Wellness Clinic, friendly staff members greet you and offer the following:

Vital signs check

Your specialist assesses your body weight, body mass index (BMI), blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs.

Medical history review

Dr. Joel discusses your medical history. That includes family history of disease, past diagnoses and surgeries, medications you might take, and symptoms you may have.

Physical exam

During a physical exam, Dr. Joel evaluates your eyes, throat, neck, breathing, heartbeat, abdomen, and reflexes. She completes a pelvic exam to examine your reproductive organs and might take a sample of cells to screen for cervical cancer during a Pap test. She also offers breast exams to screen for lumps and other signs of breast cancer.

Diagnostic testing

In addition to a Pap test, Dr. Joel might recommend a mammogram, blood tests, urine tests, heart function testing, ultrasounds, or other imaging procedures if you’re at risk of a health problem or you experience unusual symptoms. 

Treatment 

Your treatment, if you need one, depends on which medical condition you have. Dr. Joel may recommend taking dietary supplements or medications, making lifestyle changes, receiving joint injections or vaccines, or undergoing further diagnostic testing or treatment from a specialist.

When should I schedule women’s health visits?

Schedule women’s health checkups every year at Joel Wellness Clinic or more often if Dr. Joel recommends it. Book an appointment for follow-up visits as needed, if you experience new or alarming symptoms, or when you have questions or concerns about your health.
