Having an annual health care visit is a great opportunity to take charge of your health. A well-woman visit provides an excellent opportunity to discuss methods of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and minimizing health risks.  Physicians have an opportunity to contribute to your overall health and well-being by providing recommended preventive care and counseling or refer for recommended services.  Routine health care visits can help find problems early or prevent health problems before they occur. If problems are found early, they may be easier to treat and less likely to pose serious risks to your health.  These assessments should include screening, evaluation and counseling, and immunizations based on age and risk factors.

A key component of a well-woman visit for a reproductive-aged woman is the development and discussion of her reproductive life plan to ensure that medical testing and treatments provided are aligned with her current and future plans.  A discussion of a reproductive life plan may include prepregnancy counseling, infertility assessment, or the full range of contraceptive options.  Routine screening for gynecological diseases or conditions are equally as important, and periodic well-woman visits are appropriate and necessary for perimenopausal and postmenopausal women as well.

At Parkmed we are dedicated to your current health and your future health, by encouraging and facilitating healthy behaviors, and counseling about a wide array of effective preventive health practices.  At your annual health care visit, you and your health care professional can expect to discuss any and all of the following health issues:
