Common Questions

Q. When should I start getting mammograms?

A. Although we conduct a physical examination of your breasts during your annual check-up, you won't need to have regular mammogram screenings until your 40's.  We will provide the order needed to obtain your mammogram at the facility of your chosing during your visit.  Please call the facility directly to schedule the mammogram at a convenient time for you.


Q. What kind of birth control is the best?

A. Each woman's body responds differently to different types of birth control. We usually start you out at a low dose of a commonly used birth control pill and go from there. You may end up trying out a couple different ones before finding one that works best with your body.  If you have a pre-existing condition, it may effect what we prescribe.  We also provide IUDs (Mirena and Paraguard), tubal ligations, Essure, Implanon, Depo Provera, diaphragm fitting and referral for vasectomies. Talk to your provider to determine the best selection for you.
