Women’s Health – Finding The Right PCP For You

Women’s Health – Finding The Right PCP For You

Hooray for warm weather! We at Complete Health Partners are just as excited as you for the summer season to begin. And right in time for “swimsuit season” is a time to focus on women’s health.  Did you know that May is Women’s Health Month?  We often think of October for women’s health, however October’s focus is on the annual breast exam and mammogram.  May is for ALL of women’s health – annual physicals, well-woman exams (including that Pap smear!), overall wellness, and taking care of those little problems that have been nagging you all year. Establishing care with a primary care provider is a perfect way to start managing your overall health – and a great way to celebrate Women’s Health Month.
