This allows us to offer free screenings, like mammograms and pap smears, as well as office visits and necessary diagnostic testing. We’re proud to help women with both preventative care and treatment at reasonable costs.
Regular well-exams for women are vital to catching chronic health conditions early, as well as ensuring that women are healthy through pregnancy, menopause, and beyond.

How Health Tests Help You Live Longer
One of the most effective ways to prevent and treat a major medical issue is to start with regular health screenings. You don’t always notice symptoms of a chronic condition until it’s too late to do anything about them. If you wait to go to the doctor until you’ve already started experiencing symptoms, long-term damage may have already started to develop making it more difficult to prevent further damage.
By getting screened at regular intervals, your doctor/provider can detect early stages of diseases like cancer so that you can start treatment right away and have more options for that treatment.
