Women's Health Q & A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health at Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC, encompasses evaluations, prevention, diagnosis, and treatments for common concerns many women face. Seeing your personal physician at least once yearly is an excellent way to stay healthy, reduce your risk of medical problems, and look and feel your best at every age.

Which women's health services are available?

Some of the many women’s health services available at Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC, include:

  • Preventive medicine
  • Physical exams
  • Pelvic exams 
  • Pap smears
  • Birth control counseling and prescriptions 
  • Breast cancer screening
  • Osteoporosis treatment and prevention
  • Menstrual disorder treatment
  • Vaccinations

  • Medical weight loss 

 

Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC, also offers counseling and treatment for menopause symptoms. To restore your premenopausal hormone levels and ease the severity of your symptoms, Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC, offers hormone replacement therapy using bioidentical hormones. These hormones are structurally the same as the hormones your body produces naturally and are made from plant materials, like yams and soybeans. Additionally, we offer herbal remedies and lifestyle suggestions to help ease you into the post-menopausal life.

What happens during women’s health appointments?

During women’s health exams at Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC, your provider checks your body weight, pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. They discuss your medical history, symptoms you may have, and your medication regimen. 

Your provider also completes a comprehensive physical examination, which may include a breast exam, pelvic exam, and Pap smear when necessary to screen for signs of cervical cancer. They may suggest you undergo urine tests, blood tests, biopsies, ultrasounds, or other imaging procedures if they suspect a gynecological condition or other women’s health problem. 

Your Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC, physician answers questions or concerns you have about your health and wellness. They can treat many types of gynecological conditions and chronic diseases, or refer you to a specialist as needed. The Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC team can follow up with you via telemedicine if you’d like, and they even make house calls.

When should I schedule women’s health examinations?

Unless you have a health problem or concern, or your doctor recommends more frequent visits, schedule a well-woman exam once a year. Make an appointment with Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC, if you’d like a vaccine, experience new or unusual symptoms, or are interested in medical weight loss or birth control.
