Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care for women?

Primary care is your main source of medical treatment, whether you’re due for an annual physical exam, are experiencing chronic medical conditions, need managment of medications, or feel that something “isn’t quite right.” Your primary care doctor is the first doctor you see if you need a checkup or treatment for a health condition.

Why is primary care for women important?

Women are more than just reproductive units. At Chinn GYN, the team takes the entire woman into account when providing care and treatment. Every service at the clinic is comprehensive and integrated, meaning the team never focuses on one aspect of your health. They consider your physical, emotional, and mental well-being when recommending treatment.

By seeking primary care from a women’s health specialist, you can get most of the medical treatment you need under one roof, rather than visiting a separate primary care and women’s health practice.

What does primary care include?

The primary care services that Chinn GYN offers help address the unique needs of women and those with female reproductive organs, whether they’re navigating blood pressure concerns, unexplained migraines, or digestive issues. Common primary care services that the team provides include:

Physical exam

Depending on your unique needs, the team can perform a head-to-toe physical exam, which includes an overall health assessment or a well-woman exam. A well-woman exam focuses on your whole health, but also includes a pelvic exam, breast exam, and Pap smear (as needed).

Acute and chronic conditions and concerns

Whether you're struggling with inflammation that is affecting you anywhere in your body, experiencing bowel disruption, having difficulty figuring out how to manage your weight, unsure what your body needs (or doesn't need) to fuel it, or dealing with a known problem resulting from allergies, your hormones, your thyroid function, or complex disease states like lupus or diabetes, we are devoted to assisting you in exploring the sources of your concerns & addressing them in a personalized fashion to optimize your relationships with everything you ingest & to tailor the management of your chronic concerns to your specific needs.

Chronic illness diagnosis

Many conditions disproportionately affect women over men, including rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. Endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and certain types of cancer require long-term management from an experienced medical professional. Our team specializes in looking further than your average doctor would. Many of our patients come to us with symptoms of chronic illness and looking for answers. Our providers hold many specialties in unique, niche segments of medical care. They know where to look and what questions to ask to get you answers, whether you have regular digestive upset, unexplained weight gain, mystery skin conditions, or chronic migraines.
