It is our goal to ensure the best care for women and girls through routine check-ups, education, and preventive care. Women have special medical needs that require attention beginning in their late adolescence and continuing throughout their lives. We work closely with female patients to review their medical history and risk factors as it relates to conditions such as breast exams and breast cancer, heart disease, cervical or ovarian cancer, menopause, osteoporosis, PAP smears and other conditions that are vital to women’s health. Vitamin deficiency is sometimes overlooked by individuals, but in fact can be an underlying factor to other major conditions such as obesity, bone problems, lack of energy and fatigue, muscle weakness, memory problems, and bad skin. MPHC providers perform routine blood tests to ensure you do not have vitamin deficiencies. Vitamin D, calcium, folic acid and iron shortages are a common problem among women that can be prevented and managed with the right care.
Our physicians also understand how difficult it can be to decide on the right method for pregnancy prevention. That is why a variety of contraception medications and devices that are both safe and effective are offered to ensure that you are comfortable with the method you are using for pregnancy prevention. Our providers can help you understand the benefits and risks with each type of treatment and what may work best for you.
Prenatal Care & Education
Regular visits with a doctor throughout your pregnancy are important to ensure the health of you and your baby. In addition to medical care, prenatal care includes education on pregnancy and childbirth. During prenatal care visits medical and obstetric problems are identified and treated, and guidance and information are provided regarding diet, exercise, the use of drugs and medications, and other practices that may have an impact on the baby. Regular visits with your healthcare provider also allow you to follow the progress of your baby and offer you the ability to ask questions. Through preconception and prenatal care you can help prevent complications while being informed of important steps that you can take to ensure the health of both you and your baby.
