WELL WOMAN EXAMS
Staying healthy starts with an annual well-woman exam. These exams help women of all ages stay healthy and prevent illness and disease. The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that girls begin annual exams at around thirteen years of age, although these exams won’t usually include a pelvic exam or Pap smear until age 21.
An annual well-woman exam ensures that you are in good health. The staff at Women’s Premier OB/GYN will review your health history, take your measurements and vitals, and examine your body to see that everything is in working order. In addition, this exam is a time for you to voice questions and concerns. Our staff are committed to providing informative discussions regarding your health that are personalized to your needs and values.
Ultrasounds are a diagnostic method used to assess the health of organs and internal structures. Pelvic ultrasounds are commonly performed to diagnose and assist in the treatment of conditions such as endometriosis, cysts, tumors, anatomic abnormalities, inflammation, and infection. In addition, ultrasounds are commonly used to monitor the health of a baby throughout pregnancy and to assist with other procedures, such as the placement of an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD). If you require an ultrasound, Women’s Premier OB/GYN will ensure that you are comfortable and informed throughout the visit. Our staff will provide detailed instructions to help you prepare for your ultrasound and will walk you through the procedure before and while it is being performed.
HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Balancing our hormones is a vital aspect of our overall health. As women approach menopause, our natural hormone levels can decrease, causing uncomfortable symptoms such as night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, trouble sleeping, and mood swings. In addition, changes in our hormonal balance can impact our skin and bone density. If you are experiencing severe menopausal symptoms, hormone replacement therapy can reestablish your natural hormone levels, which will curtail the negative side-effects. This personalized treatment can be adjusted to fit your needs and is available in the form of patches, pills, and gels. Rid yourself of the symptoms of menopause and restore your quality of life by talking to our staff at Women’s Premier OB/GYN today.
When it comes to preventing pregnancy, choosing the right form of contraception can be confusing. Luckily, the wide range of options offered today allows patients to select the method that best fits their individual circumstances. At Women’s Premier OB/GYN, we are dedicated to helping you select a product suited to your lifestyle. Features to consider include:
Contraceptive methods most often fail because patients do not use the method as prescribed. It is therefore recommended that you select a method you feel comfortable using on a regular basis.
We offer a wide variety of contraceptives and will work with you to determine the best product for your individual circumstances.
Dr. Stimmage is an excellent doctor. She makes you feel like you are the only patient she has! That’s the level of attention she gives. Her staff are also good – Brenda is brilliant! I also love the rapport I observed between Dr. Stimmage and her staff. Great place!
I went to 5 different doctors for a problem I was having and Dr. Stimage was the only one who took the time to listen to me and perform the necessary tests to diagnose me properly. After suffering through 2 years of horrible symptoms, she gave me my life back!
I love her! Very down to earth, excellent bedside manner, she delivered my baby and Im looking forward to the next one, I wouldn’t go anywhere else, environment is friendly and stressfree.
Dr. Stimage took such good care of me during my pregnancy. I recommend her to everyone I can! 2 of my friends highly recommended her and now I do too! I promise you’ll love her.
