Annual Exams

Annual exams (also known as wellness visits) are an important part of keeping you healthy. What happens during your visit depends on your age, sexual history, and medical history.

Annual Exams

Breast/Chest Exams

Breast and chest exams can help detect breast cancer early. During a breast exam, your doctor will check for lumps and other problems, and can recommend further testing if there’s anything unusual.

Pap Tests
