Why should you have to go to a separate health care provider’s office to get the care you need? At Premier Wellness Clinics, Khalida Yasmin, MD, and Amer Shakil, MD, MBA, believe you should have access to well-women care from the comfort of their office in Frisco, Texas. To schedule your annual well-woman visit or for specific questions, don’t hesitate to call the office or make an appointment online today.
Well-women care is exactly what it sounds like. With this female-focused care, their practitioners ensure you’re getting the personalized screenings, treatments, and support you need. That includes woman-centered services to protect your sexual health, like Pap smears and contraceptive counseling.
Well-women care centers around an annual appointment at Premier Wellness Clinics. With this yearly visit to the office, you and your care team have the opportunity to talk about your health goals and any changes you’ve observed in your body. This way, they can offer personalized care that supports your wellness through the years.
Generally, most women start to seek well-women care from a gynecologist between the ages of 13 and 21. But because Premier Wellness Clinics also offers family medicine, they make it easy for patients to transition seamlessly to this service when it’s right for them.
With an annual well-women care visit, Dr. Yasmin, MD, Dr. Shakil, MD, MBA, and our team of practitioners can help younger women protect their sexual health by performing screenings for relevant cancers and STDs. They can also talk with them about the right form of birth control based on their family planning and wellness goals.
Through the years, they can add care as needed to help each woman feel her best. For example, they can help women prepare to get pregnant or navigate the physical changes that come with menopause.
In short, well-women care helps women stay healthy through every season of life.
Generally, your well-women appointment consists of two parts:
You and your provider talk about your personal and family health history so they can provide the right screenings for you. For example, if you have a heightened risk for cervical cancer, they may recommend Pap smears annually instead of every three years.
This is also an opportunity to talk with Dr. Yasmin, MD, or Dr. Shakil, MD, MBA, about how you’ve been feeling and any symptoms you may have. Then, you can discuss treatments — including lifestyle changes — that help you move toward your health goals.
Next, your practitioner will perform a physical exam, checking your vitals and examining your breasts and pelvis. With these examinations, we will screens you for health complications.
