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.
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.
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.
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.

“Dr. Elleman is fabulous. He’s caring kind compassionate. My only regret is that I haven’t seen him since 2015, but sometimes life gets in the way of our plans.
I was able to get in and see him on the spur of the moment due to a cancellation and I couldn’t be happier I know I’m in good hands. His staff is wonderful and Patti made me feel very comfortable relaying all my information to her on the phone. Love the staff and the very upbeat., brilliantly clean surroundings in this location as I had not seen this new location until yesterday. ”

He explains everything in great detail and answers any questions I have thoroughly. You don’t feel like you’re being rushed at all like other doctors I have previously been to. Overall such a wonderful experience every time I go! Highly recommend :)”
