A full range of specialized services are offered. Many test and procedures are performed in the office at substantial savings to patients, particularly those without insurance coverage. We have state of the art equipment for the in-office management of the abnormal Pap test and for a variety of benign and pre-malignant gynecological conditions: video enhanced colposcopy, biopsy procedures, radio-frequency electrosurgery (Cervical cauterization, LEEP), Dilatation and Curettage (D&C), fine needle aspiration and sonographically guided core biopsy of the breast. In addition, we offer intrauterine insemination and ovulation induction therapy for infertility patients. Family Planning services include dispensing of Birth Control Pills, DepoProvera injections, IUD insertions, Implanon subdermal implants and Diaphragm fittings.
Tests are available to both patient and her partner for the diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases (STD), including confidential and complete testing for chlamedia, gonorrhea, herpes, syphilis, hepatitis A, B,and C; and HIV. Because STD often can only be detected by laboratory means, we recommend routine annual testing unless the patient is sure that her relationship is mutually monogamous.
A wide variety of blood and urine lab tests are available daily Monday through Saturday with no appointment necessary. Patients who come in for a pregnancy test are given the results immediately and will have the opportunity to speak with a counselor. We have three pregnancy tests: a free slide urine test that can be performed three weeks after a missed period; a more sensitive urine test; and a blood test that may detect pregnancy as early as 9 days after a possible conception, and even if your period is not late.
Vaginal and abdominal ultrasound equipment is readily available and can be used during the office visit when indicated. This safe and painless diagnostic tool has proven to be indispensable in our infertility and obstetrical practice. Just to mention a few of its applications, we use it to evaluate bleeding during the first trimester of pregnancy; to check for a possible ectopic pregnancy; to assess the fetal anatomy and prenatal fetal growth; to determine the gestational age which is an essential part of all second trimester pregnancy terminations; to obtain an accurate date of delivery; to monitor ovulation induction in infertility patients and determine when to proceed with intrauterine insemination; to differentiate a cystic from a solid pelvic mass; to evaluate women having abnormal uterine bleeding; and to screen postmenopausal women for benign or malignant tumors of the uterus and ovary.
POST MENOPAUSAL HORMONE TREATMENT
When women age, the mucous membranes that line the vagina may thin or become dry. Some women experience pain with intercourse. Persistent calcium loss may lead to osteoporosis. Hot flashes and insomnia can be effectively managed. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease such as obesity, abnormal blood cholesterol/lipid levels and the thyroid function can be tested and properly managed. The length and quality of life can be enhanced for most women reaching the menopause.
Gynecologists have come to assume a leading role as an overall provider of care for women of all ages: primary care, preventive medicine, wellness promotion and cancer screening services.
