Todd J. Adams, MD, MPH, FACOG, James G. Zolzer, MD, FACOG and Melissa Ranallo, PA-C, offer annual well-woman exams to their patients as a preventive health care measure. Lakeshore Women's Specialists is an OB-GYN practice located in Mooresville, NC, that serves residents from many North Carolina communities, including the Davidson and Lake Norman areas.
Annual wellness exams at Lakeshore Women’s Specialists go far beyond pap testing to include genetic screening for hereditary cancer and other health conditions. Along with comprehensive cancer screening and laboratory testing, dietary concerns and lifestyle recommendations are offered to help improve overall health and increase longevity for each woman. Well-woman exams are designed to uncover problems that range far outside of the reproductive system. This type of exam evaluates a woman's overall, general health, giving the doctor a complete picture. Receiving an annual exam helps women to create and maintain positive health habits on a long- term basis.
Annual OB-GYN exams are extremely important for several reasons. First and foremost, they help maintain good reproductive health. Secondly, they can uncover potential problems within the reproductive system while they are in the earliest stages. Early detection provides doctors with the most treatment options and can help women correct poor lifestyle and dietary habits before they can cause major health issues. During an annual exam, the provider will perform a variety of tests to uncover potential health problems, answer any questions the patient may have and offer recommendations to improve diet and lifestyle habits.
An annual well-woman exam can uncover many different potential health problems. Pap smears can indicate the beginnings of cervical cancer or other sexually transmitted diseases. Blood work and other laboratory tests can indicate diabetes, hormone imbalances, and bacterial and viral STDs. By detecting fibroids, endometriosis, cervical dysplasia and other health conditions, the doctor can create an effective treatment program to prevent many of these conditions from getting any worse. Providers also can answer questions and provide sound advice on taking better care of the body and providing proper nutritional support.
