Dr. Phillips considers a woman’s annual physical to be much more than a pap smear and breast exam. The annual exam includes a review of your complete medical history and a comprehensive physical exam. She will address all issues related to your health, not just the gynecological issues.
During this exam, you and Dr. Phillips can jointly discuss important women’s health issues such as mammography, pregnancy planning, osteoporosis, menstrual irregularities, menopause, pre-menstrual syndrome, contraception, and timing of pap smears.
Doctor Phillips will also discuss cardiovascular health (including prevention of heart attacks and strokes), cancer screening, living a healthy lifestyle, problems with depression and/or anxiety, and risks associated with a family history of various diseases. Along with a full exam, a pap smear and blood work will be done if needed.
Doctor Phillips can arrange a mammogram, bone density test to check for osteoporosis, or any other tests needed. Make your total health a priority and schedule a physical with Dr. Phillips today!
