We have specialized services for every season of a woman’s life. Women's Institute for Specialized Health (WISH) provides routine and preventative care in the areas of gynecology and obstetrics, as well as for the many health issues women can face, such as cancer, post-partum depression, osteoporosis, fibroid tumors, endometriosis, and pelvic pain. No matter your age or phase, we are here for you to provide the best quality service and a respectful medical experience.
Gynecological exams are important for detecting and preventing many types of women’s health issues. Yearly Well-Woman visits are a wonderful opportunity to learn more about your body and for your physician to counsel you on how to can maintain a healthy lifestyle. They are also a chance to screen for pregnancy, cancer, STIs, and other health risks, as well as address conditions such as incontinence, infertility, infections, and absent, painful, or heavy menstrual periods.
Every woman 21 or older should have a pap test every three years if she has not had abnormal pap smears in the past. However, your Well-Woman exam consists of more than just a pap smear. The entire GYN exam covers many other aspects of your health, and may reveal if you have a yeast or bacterial infection, or a condition such as endometriosis, fibroid tumors, PCOS, or PMDD. By keeping up with regular gynecologic exams, you can be confident and take control of your health, and get to know your body better.
Becoming a mother is one of the biggest transitions a woman can experience. You deserve the best possible care, not only to ease your body through remarkable changes, but to give your baby the best, healthiest start possible. WISH’s obstetric services cover the whole pregnancy from fertility and conception through post-partum care.
We offer prenatal care, fertility services, high-risk pregnancy care, prenatal diagnostics and ultrasounds, reproductive endocrinology and referrals for surgeries related to fertility and prenatal care. We also offer preparation for birth including classes on birth and breast feeding, lactation consultation, infant massage, and baby care. We want you to be comfortable and informed throughout this amazing experience so that you can feel confident as you step into this wonderful new role.
Women’s Health Issues
Any health issue a woman faces is a women’s health issue. They can range from those that affect women only, like ovarian cancer, to those that can affect both sexes but occur more frequently in women, such as osteoporosis. We work with your primary care physician to optimize your overall health.
At WISH you can be confident in quality care that takes your full medical history into account and helps you to be more informed about your unique health issues and how to manage any conditions you may experience. Our goal is to help you make educated, quality decisions about managing and protecting your health throughout your life.
