Choosing A Doctor

Choosing A Doctor

Women Can Benefit From Seeing An OB/GYN

When it comes to a woman’s health, two doctors can often be better than one. Some women only see an internist or a family practice physician. Others choose an OB/GYN (obstetrician- gynecologist) to be their primary care physician.

But for most women, there are benefits in developing a relationship with physicians in both specialties. The American College of Gynecologists and Obstetricians says that nearly every woman age 21 and older should have an annual well-woman visit with her OB/GYN. An OB/GYN has extensive experience in performing pelvic exams and Pap tests. Even after menopause, women can still benefit from gynecological care.

Your primary care physician is usually either an internist or family practice physician. These doctors are specifically trained to take care of your overall health by diagnosing and treating a full range of medical problems.

So choose to have two physicians on your health team. As a woman, you deserve it.
