Regular gynecologic care is an important part of every adult woman's ongoing medical care. Gynecologic care can catch problems or infections before they become serious, and can ensure continued gynecologic health. This part of women's care also helps women understand and deal with issues related to aging.
Gynecologic exams regularly include pelvic exams, Pap smears, breast exams and urinalysis. They can also include testing for sexually transmitted diseases, and diagnosis or treatment of problems related to urinary incontinence.
The physicians at Novant Health Presbyterian Internal Medicine complete annual gynecologic exams, making a separate trip to an OB/GYN's office unnecessary. If you would like to schedule a gynecologic exam as part of or instead of a routine physical, please call our office at 704-384-1750.
A note about obstetric care:
Should you become pregnant, our office will refer you to an obstetrician for your prenatal care.
