It is important for adult women to have a Primary Care Provider specializing in Women’s Health. Many, possibly all, medical conditions affect women differently than men. Although the symptoms may be similar to both women and men, the effects of the condition and the care necessary can differ significantly for women. Having a primary care provider specializing in women’s health gives you the opportunity to address your overall health taking into consideration the complex interactions of the body’s system, such as cardiac, gastrointestinal/digestive, bone and respiratory health.
Another important aspect of women’s health, from teens to post-menopausal adults, is hormone management. The reason is that hormone imbalance in women has a modifying effect on many health issues, including heart disease, obesity, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, anxiety and woman specific issues, such as breast cancer and uterine health. These are just a few of the conditions your Women’s Health Primary Care Provider can address and treat.
