Do I need an annual gynecological exam?
Yes, you should have a gynecological exam every year. This comprehensive annual exam assesses your overall health and serves as a tool to help you and Dr. Dorio develop a plan to manage any underlying health issues or concerns.
It also helps you and Dr. Dorio establish a more trusting relationship that makes you more apt to seek out help when you have a health concern.
During your annual exam, Dr. Dorio reviews your medical history and any of your specific health concerns. Then, Dr. Dorio conducts a physical and pelvic exam. They may also conduct a Pap smear, which is a gynecological test that assesses your risk of cervical cancer.
Depending on your health needs, Dr. Dorio may recommend additional screening tests, such as a mammogram, breast cancer screening, or blood work.
IMAC Medical Group is a full-service primary care office that offers in-house phlebotomy services, so if blood work is needed, you don’t need to go to another facility for your test.
Based on the information gathered during your gynecological exam, Dr. Dorio makes recommendations to improve or maintain health, such as updating vaccinations, improving your diet, or reviewing the benefits of regular exercise.
