When you visit Physicians for Women, we’ll also ensure you're up to date on routine screenings, including preventative labs, like cholesterol testing and diabetes screening, mammograms, colonoscopy and immunizations. 

We routinely check for signs of chronic disease like heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer and diabetes. Catching and treating these conditions early can prevent serious complications.

 

How do women’s health services protect my heart health?

The sad reality is heart disease is the leading cause of death among American women. Compared to men, women are less likely to have a heart attack, but more likely to die from one. To date, one in 2 women in the US die of cardiac events.. Because of this, the team at Physicians for Women emphasizes your heart health. They evaluate your family history and lifestyle habits and help you establish a cardiac risk reduction plan to keep your heart in good condition.

The team offers cardiac disease screenings and evaluates you for key risk factors, including:

  • Elevated cholesterol
  • Elevated blood sugar levels
  • Elevated Body mass index (or BMI)
  • Waist circumference
  • High blood pressure

Your provider may recommend a test an electrocardiogram (EKG) to assess your risk of heart disease further. The test, which is available on-site, helps to evaluate chest pain, heart palpitations, and markers of heart health.
