Dr. Smith provides a variety of women’s health services like Pap smears and pregnancy tests. When you have an annual well-woman checkup, in addition to checking your vitals and talking to you about your health and lifestyle, Dr. Smith also performs pelvic exams to check for abnormalities in your reproductive organs and administers Pap smears to check for abnormal cervical cells and signs of cervical cancer.
He also offers quick and accurate pregnancy testing. If you’ve missed a period, if you have symptoms of pregnancy like fatigue, breast tenderness, and nausea, or if you’ve taken a test at home and want to confirm your pregnancy, Dr. Smith can confirm the results and get you started on your prenatal journey.
Dr. Smith and the team at Christos Doctors Inn Walk In Health Care know that men are the demographic less likely to have routine checkups and health screenings, especially when they feel healthy. However, routine screenings for blood pressure, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer can help diagnose serious health issues early so you can get the help you need before a more serious condition develops.
In addition to essential men’s health screenings, Dr. Smith also helps with erectile dysfunction issues and improves your overall health with lifestyle advice to adjust your diet, exercise, and stress management habits.
Everyone has different needs when it comes to STD screening. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that you get tested at least once a year. However, if you engage in risky behaviors like having unprotected sex with multiple partners or use illicit intravenous drugs, you should have STD screenings more often. STD testing is often as simple as a blood draw or urinalysis, although some STD tests may require a swab from your genitals.
If you’re not sure about how often you need an STD screening, talk to Dr. Smith about your concerns and lifestyle, and he’ll provide customized advice on how often you should be tested.
