We are back to full service family medicine.
All women between the ages of 21 and 70 should have cervical cancer screening (pap smear) done every three years. There are circumstances that require more frequent screening. Talk to your physician to see if you need more frequent screening. There is a special clinic done each month by a female physician. You do not have to a patient of our clinic to get your screening done. We will forward a copy of your result to your regular doctor.
