As part of our commitment to your total health and wellness, Ladies First Obstetrics and Gynecology of Dothan provides vital preventive care to women of all ages.
Unlike diagnostic care, which focuses on identifying a medical condition based on specific symptoms and providing appropriate treatment, preventive care is what you receive when you are symptom-free but want to prevent illnesses from developing.
Examples of preventive care at Ladies First include:
- Annual exams
- Pap smears
- Screenings for cervical and breast cancers, sexually transmitted infections (STI), and osteoporosis
The goal of our preventive care and health screenings is to create a personalized wellness plan that maintains and/or improves your overall health. The sooner an illness or disease is detected, the better the chances of treating it successfully. Also, with advance awareness of any health risks you may have, you can potentially avoid costly medical problems down the road.
