Women's Health Q&A
Why do I need a women’s health exam?

What happens at a women’s health exam?
*During COVID, while serving her clients with exclusively telemedicine and home visits, Dr. Miller is not currently able to offer pelvic exams or pap smears. This preventative care service will resume when her clinic space re-opens.
When you see Dr. Miller at Simply Medicine, your women’s health exam begins with a consultation. She asks you questions about your family medical history, your personal medical history, and discusses any of your health concerns.
Dr. Miller then leaves the room so you can change into a gown for the exam. When she returns, she examines your breasts for lumps or abnormalities, performs a pelvic exam, and a Pap smear to test for precancerous and cancerous cells if needed. She also checks your blood pressure, heart, and lungs.
If you need birth control, she prescribes the appropriate medications for you.
During your exam, other preventive care might include:
- Mammogram referral
- STD screening
- Bone density test
Depending on your age, Dr. Miller might talk to you about colon cancer screening, which is recommended at the age of 45.
At Simply Medicine, Dr. Miller’s goal is to prevent disease in your life and keep you well.
How do I prepare for my women’s health exam?
