The intent of the annual well‐woman visit is for routine health maintenance. The assumption is that you do not have specific medical problems or conditions.

If you wish to discuss additional issues, please let the Front Desk know so they can schedule additional time for this.

If you are evaluated for a problem‐oriented issue by your provider (e.g., infections, sexual dysfunction, abdominal bleeding, back pain, sleeping problems), you or your insurance may be billed separately and in addition to your well‐ woman visit since problem‐oriented visits usually necessitate a separate office visit.

Depending on your insurance, you may be responsible for additional fees for the problem‐oriented portion of your visit. Please review your insurance coverage for information on what is covered as part of your visit.
