WOMEN’S HEALTHCARE OF BOCA RATON

We completely understand that some patients might experience fear or anxiety prior to visiting a gynecologist. This is why we made sure to handpick only the best and most gentle, care-oriented team members. From check-in to check-out, your comfort level and health are our top concern.  Gynecology exams are our specialty, and we take pride in offering the most compassionate care.

What can you expect?

Patients should know as much as they can about what the exams look like so that when they come there is no fear or anxiety. Our gynecology exams include a number of diagnostic procedures that determine the health of the female genital tract.

An ordinary exam procedure usually begins with an open conversation between the doctor and patient in order to get as much information about their condition. Patients are encouraged to speak freely about their current state, there is no point in being shy when your health is concerned.

This is followed by an inquiry into personal and family medical history – the doctor will ask about previous illnesses the patient or the patient’s family had. Once all the information is acquired, the exam can start. A complete rundown of the main exam procedure looks like this:

  • Examination of the outer genital parts

  • Examination of the  vaginal walls using a speculum

  • Taking a Pap smear and vaginal fluid smear
  • Assessment of the characteristics of the pelvis, cervix, uterus, ovaries, and oviduct

  • (As needed) Ultrasound exam of the pelvic region using a vaginal probe (can be done above the belly as well) to inspect the inside of the uterus (endometrium), the structure and size of the ovaries

  • (As needed) diagnostic lab testing

Once the main part of the exam is done, the doctor will give you a final opinion and prescribe medication as needed. Further diagnostic procedures can occur depending on each case.

Gynecology exams usually last around 30 minutes or more. If you have questions or if you want to schedule an appointment, please call our office today.
