Women's/Men's Health Q & A
What women’s health services can I receive?
The Signature Health and Wellness team have many years of experience providing yearly well-woman exams and caring for women’s reproductive health.
Women’s health services available at Signature Health and Wellness include:
- Annual gynecologic exam
- Pap smears
- Family planning and birth control
- Menopause management
- Sex education
- Health screenings
The Signature Health and Wellness team make sure that you receive the appropriate health screenings, depending on your risk factors and age. They can help schedule a mammogram to screen for breast cancer, a bone density test to assess your risk of osteoporosis, and a colonoscopy for colon cancer screening.
Other vital health care screenings, such as thyroid function, blood glucose to check for diabetes, and blood pressure are routinely performed on-site.
What men’s health services can I receive?
Your practitioner at Signature Health and Wellness evaluates your medical history and determines whether you need health screenings for common men’s concerns such as diabetes, colorectal cancer, and abdominal aortic aneurysm.
Your health exam also includes screening for testicular and prostate cancer as well as treatment for low testosterone and erectile dysfunction, if needed.
Men often don’t realize that after they reach the age of 30 or 40, their levels of testosterone naturally decline by about 1% every year. Low testosterone increases your risk for osteoporosis and causes weight gain, low sex drive, fewer spontaneous erections, and loss of muscle mass and strength.
What should women and men know about heart disease?
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women and men. Signature Health and Wellness places a high priority on evaluating your heart health and working together with you to prevent cardiovascular disease or to maintain a healthy life by properly managing existing problems.
Signature Health and Wellness provides heart diagnostics to protect your health, such as:
- Blood pressure testing
- Blood tests for cholesterol and inflammatory markers
- Electrocardiograms (EKG)
- Screening for obstructive sleep apnea
In many cases, you can prevent heart disease by:
- Following a healthy diet
- Engaging in regular exercise
- Losing weight if needed
- Stopping smoking
- Getting routine preventive health care
With routine checkups, the Signature Health and Wellness team can detect warning signs such as changes in cholesterol levels or blood pressure, then develop a plan to treat them before they lead to heart disease.
The team also help you maintain a healthy heart by providing lifestyle tips, prescription medications as necessary, and ongoing support as you take steps to improve your health.
To schedule an annual checkup or to get help with an ongoing health concern, call Signature Health and Wellness or book an appointment online.
