Well Woman Exams
in Boca Raton, Florida

An annual checkup for women, often known as a Well Woman Exam or wellness checkup, is a screening and evaluation process designed to detect any underlying health issues. Most medical issues have better prognosis and treatment options if caught early on.

Maintaining regular wellness checks is important even if you’re feeling fine. In the early, treatable stages, many gynecological disorders present with minor symptoms. A Well Woman Exam at Women’s Healthcare of Boca Raton can help detect issues before they become serious health risks.

You and your doctor can get to know each other better with regular wellness checkups, making it easier for the doctor to notice any changes in your health that might cause concern.

What Does Women’s Wellness Check Entail?

Many factors, including age, sexual history, and current health, will determine the specifics of women’s wellness exams. Women can benefit from a comprehensive physical examination, clinical pelvic and breast screening, vaccination, blood testing, and counseling to help them make educated decisions about their health.

The Physical Exam

The doctor will do a thorough physical examination, including a review of your medical history and questions about your current health, and check your vitals (blood pressure, pulse, reflexes, etc.).

A laboratory test, blood, and urine can be ordered as needed or as indicated.

Pap Smear

A woman’s first Pap smear is often performed when she is 21 years. Regular screening can help to identify early cellular changes of the cervix critical in the prevention of cervical cancer.

Breast Exam

During a manual breast exam, your doctor will feel around for any abnormalities, such as lumps or nodules. Even though not all lumps indicate cancer, having your doctor check for them can help minimize your risk while keeping an eye out for other issues. If the doctor detects something unusual or if you have a family history of breast cancer, mammography might be in order.

Pelvic Exam

Women’s wellness annual checkups should include a pelvic examination for all women over the age of 21. The pelvic exam can pinpoint cancerous tissue, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and other inflammatory conditions in their earliest stages. During this part of the annual checkup, the doctor will inspect your uterus, ovaries, vulva, vagina, cervix, and fallopian tubes to see if they are the right size and in the right place.

Patient Feedback

“I originally found Dr Ellman based upon his wonderful reviews. His office is very clean & welcoming along with his wonderful staff. I had the pleasure of there midwife Ilona & Dr Ellman delivering my son a few weeks ago. Ilona was wonderful and even came to my hospital room a few times after I delivered my son. She really made it a special experience for my fiancé & I. They’ve always made me feel comfortable and reassured me during my pregnancy. I cant begin to thank them enough for making my pregnancy & delivery a wonderful experience.”

“Doctor Ellman is the most caring OBGYN I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing. I’ve had debilitating pain for many many years related to my period. Dr Ellman helped me find the cause and made a plan of treatment after many failed attempts. You can tell he cares for his patients and wants to do whatever he can to help and this applies to his staff as well. I’m thankful that I found Dr Ellman and his team.”

“I met Dr. Ellman in 2018 when I found out I was pregnant for the first time. I was nervous and excited and the same time. Dr. Ellman explains the birthing process in the lamest of terms and I felt so comfortable with him. Anytime I had a question everyone was so helpful and the energy was so welcoming and the whole office is so knowledgeable. Best experience ever being a first time mom. Would recommend to everyone I know. I still to this day 4 years later use Dr. Ellman as my OBGYN.”
