Breast Exams

Breast exams are an important aspect of women’s health care and breast cancer prevention. You should perform self-breast exams in front of the mirror every month so that you can grow familiar with how your breasts look and feel. This way, if anything should change, you will be able to discuss it with your doctor promptly.

We provide multiple services to ensure continued breast health. Our exams test for conditions such as breast cancer, mastitis, and fibroadenoma.

These services include:

  • Clinical breast exams
  • Digital mammographies
  • Breast ultrasounds
  • Biopsies
  • Lumpectomies

It is recommended that women receive 1 mammogram a year from age 40 and up. Women over the age of 55 who have normal risk factors can reduce screenings to once every 2 years.

Minimally Invasive Gynecology Surgery

Minimally invasive procedures require less recovery time than traditional surgeries and patients generally experience less post-operation pain.

  • Infertility treatment
  • Fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Pelvic masses
