Women's Health Q & A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health focuses on the unique needs of adolescent girls and adult women.

In addition to general health services, Dr. Leafblad and his Halo MD team offer complete women-focused services. They diagnose and treat gynecologic problems, cervical cancer, and other conditions that affect women’s health.

The team also helps women navigate the challenges of menopause and address problems that affect their reproductive and sexual health.

What women’s health services are available?

To protect your overall health and wellness, Dr. Leafblad and the Halo MD team offer a wide range of women’s health services, including:

  • Physicals
  • Pelvic exams
  • Pap smears
  • Breast exams
  • Menopause treatment
  • Bloodwork and lab testing

The team also offers nutritional counseling and medical weight loss programs to help women achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. These services help reduce risk factors for obesity-related medical problems, like heart disease, high blood pressure (hypertension), and certain cancers.

What can I expect during a women’s health consultation?

During your initial women’s health consultation, Dr. Leafblad and his Halo MD medical team spend time getting to understand your unique health history, your family medical background, and your existing health needs.

Dr. Leafblad completes a thorough physical exam to ensure that your body is functioning at peak levels. He completes a pelvic exam to assess the health of your vagina and other reproductive organs.

During a pelvic exam, Dr. Leafblad collects a sample of cervical cells during a Pap smear. He sends the sample to a lab to identify cell changes that indicate an increased risk of cervical cancer.

If testing detects any underlying health problems, the Halo MD team will customize a care plan to treat them. The team also provides you with recommendations for lifestyle and dietary changes that support your overall health and wellness.

How often do I need women’s health appointments?

Ideally, you should have physical, pelvic, and breast exams once a year. This helps the team track changes in your health from one year to the next.

If you have an existing health problem, you’ll need to meet with the team more often. You might also benefit from chronic disease management available at Halo MD.

Depending on your personal and family health histories, you might need to undergo additional preventive health screenings. These screenings proactively protect your health and long-term wellness.
