- Weight Control: Learn about ways to control your weight, prevent obesity, exercise, and prevent problems associated with being overweight.
- Issues With your Menstrual Period: Discuss PMS, painful periods, your first period, heavy bleeding, or irregular periods.

Other Reasons: Get help with hormones, menopause issues, urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, (our MonaLisa Touch™ laser for vaginal health).
The next time someone says, “you don’t need your yearly pap smear any longer,” please remember the value of a yearly well-woman exam. The annual visit is significant. We look forward to seeing you.
Have a happy, healthy summer!

As an expectant parent, you have many options when donating cord blood. Cord blood options include donating to a public cord blood bank, storing cord blood in a family cord blood bank, or saving cord blood for a sibling who has a medical need.
Cord blood is defined as the blood collected from the umbilical cord and placenta (after birth) when a healthy baby is born. It is rich in blood-forming cells that can be used in transplants for patients with leukemia, lymphoma, and many other life-threatening diseases.
Your baby’s umbilical cord blood contains young, powerful stem cells that can renew themselves and become specialized. What does this mean? When saved, your baby’s cord blood can provide a potentially healing resource for your family’s future. Transplant medicine has used cord blood stem cells for nearly thirty years. More recently, cord blood use has expanded into a new area known as regenerative medicine.
