It’s important for every woman to have regular screening for cervical and breast cancer and able to talk comfortably with her provider regarding family planning options.
At Care Practice, we do PAP smears, pelvic exams, and check for sexually transmitted diseases. We also discuss birth control options or how to best prepare for pregnancy if you are desiring to become pregnant. If you prefer a female provider, schedule an appointment with Dr. Alex Zaphiris. Please check our fees for pricing.
Hormones play a major role in maintaining balance in a woman’s body. Estrogen and Progesterone are the two main hormones that fluctuate with a woman’s cycle, and it important to keep these balanced for various health conditions.
Estrogens, the primary sex hormones in women, maintain normal skin and blood vessel structure, decrease the rate of bone loss, support libido, and maintain normal structure and function of vaginal and urethral tissue. Progesterone maintains normal body temperature and sleep patterns, protects bone density, and supports mood health and libido.
To help you achieve optimal hormone balance, we use a variety of hormone tests to guide our treatment, while making sure to address nutritional deficiencies, stress, sleep and weight management. We prescribe bio-identical hormones, vitamins, herbs and nutritional supplements to help you achieve optimal health and hormone balance.
