When you’re a woman, you have special medical needs, some that you may be hesitant to talk about.

Women's Health Q & A

What are women’s health services?

Women’s health services address the specific medical needs of women, including:

  • Pap smears
  • Breast exams and mammography
  • Reproductive health
  • Menstrual issues
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Sexual Dysfunction
  • Menopause

As a woman, Dr. Biegel understands the difficulties that women go through and is sensitive to uncomfortable issues. Because of this, she provides patients an environment where they can speak openly and honestly, even if it’s something they may be embarrassed about.

It doesn’t matter if it’s about sexual dysfunction or postpartum depression, it’s important to discuss all the issues you have with your doctor. If you need a doctor you can trust with your women’s issues, contact Dr. Biegel today.

If your PCP covers women’s health, do you still need to see an OB/GYN?

If you’re seeing Dr. Biegel for comprehensive care, depending on your situation, you may not need to regularly see an OB/GYN. Dr. Biegel is able to perform yearly pap smears and breast exams, plus address issues you may be having with your menstrual cycle or reproductive health. Her comprehensive care covers all aspects of women’s health and, therefore, for most patients, seeing an OB/GYN is not necessary.

How often should you discuss women’s health issues with your doctor?

Most women see their internal medicine doctor more often than their OB/GYN, who is typically seen yearly unless there are other problems or pregnancy. Yet when your primary care physician (PCP) provides women’s health services, you have a unique opportunity to talk about your OB/GYN issues any time you’re at the doctor.

With Dr. Biegel as your PCP, you can discuss your blood pressure during the same appointment you schedule your mammogram. This convenience not only saves you time but also provides you with more comprehensive care and a doctor who knows all of your health concerns, regardless of what part of the body they involve. If you’re interested in an internal medicine doctor who can also address your women’s health needs, schedule an appointment with Dr. Biegel online today.
