A “Well Woman Exam” is a foundation for wellness and the promotion of health management for women of all ages. A Well Woman Exam can also be referred to as a routine check-up, yearly exam, annual pap, and preventive visit. The exam is a part of living a healthy lifestyle and it’s important for the early detection of disease.

A Well Woman Exam normally includes the following:

  • A personal discussion about your health, physical and mental well being.
  • A general physical exam.
  • A breast exam.
  • A pelvic exam (pap smear).
  • An update of your life and work situation.
  • An update of your family health history (are there any new serious illnesses in your family?).
  • A review of your health history.
  • An update of current medications, herbs, and supplements (please bring a list).
  • Discuss your need for medication refills.
  • An evaluation of need for health screening tests based on age, personal, and family history.
  • An update of your immunization records.

A Well Woman Exam should be done on an annual basis. If it has been more than 12 months since your last exam, please schedule yours today.
