A comprehensive well-woman exam does more than provide a gynecological examination. It offers full-fledged preventive health care with a thorough physical and an assessment of your overall health.
During a well-woman exam, the team at Holvik Family Health Center look for early signs of potential health problems and assess your risk for developing chronic disease. In most cases, if they can identify a condition early, they can treat it before it turns into a significant problem.
