Gynecology

Women’s OB/GYN Medical Group strives to provide Sonoma County women with comprehensive gynecologic and obstetric care in a comfortable environment close to home. Routine visits in which your physician can exam, treat, and plan for future well being are essential to your long-term health. At a general check-up, your physician can answer any questions and identify issues you may have with your reproductive system before they become difficult to correct.

Health professionals recommend adolescent girls and women to start routine, annual gynecologic visits around the age of 14 unless otherwise indicated by their general practitioners. Check with your insurance provider to see if annual visits are covered, and discuss your gynecologic health with your general practitioner to hear what he or she recommends.

A general health screening may include the following:

  • Blood pressure
  • Height
  • Weight
  • BMI (body mass index)
  • Comprehensive physical exam (includes breast and pelvic region)
  • A hemoglobin test, an indicator for anemic
  • Pap smear (if necessary)
