Women's Health Q & A

What is women’s health care?

Medical professionals approach women’s health differently. Gynecologists, for example, specialize in helping you keep your reproductive system healthy. That’s certainly beneficial, but it does mean they rarely take a holistic approach. Other primary care providers may treat you as a whole person but fail to take special consideration for your needs as a woman. 

At Kumar Quality Medical Care, the team strives to blend all of the care women need. They serve as your primary care provider, ensuring you get the holistic, proactive health care you need, while also offering women-specific care. 

In fact, they partner with local pharmacies to make sure women throughout the Norton area have the information they deserve about their bodies. They help educate women about:

  • Irregular periods
  • Hormone therapy
  • Menopause and its symptoms, including hot flashes
  • Weight gain
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

The women’s health staff at Kumar Quality Medical Care is committed to delivering top-tier care to all of their patients. 

Who should get women’s health care?

Any female over the age of 18 can benefit from women’s health care. In your youth, dedicated women’s care helps you best understand your body and can help you manage PMS, irregular periods, and more. 

As you age, a committed women’s health provider becomes even more important. Symptoms arise as your hormone levels fluctuate as you approach menopause, including:

  • Hot flashes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Sleep issues
  • Weight gain
  • Mood changes
  • Memory problems

Fortunately, you’re not stuck with these unwanted changes. With treatment like hormone replacement therapy, your Kumar Quality Medical Care provider can help you feel your best through menopause and beyond. 

What does women’s health care include?

Every female patient at Kumar Quality Medical Care gets annual physicals or well-woman exams. This yearly checkup is an opportunity to be proactive about your health. During the physical, your Kumar Quality Medical Care provider screens you for any health conditions for which you might be at risk, including cervical and breast cancer.

But your women’s health care isn’t confined to a yearly visit. Your Kumar Quality Medical Care provider partners with you to help you feel your best. For example, the team offers noninvasive vaginal revitalization with TempSure™ Vitalia to help reverse the effects of aging on your vagina and sexual health. 

The team strives to deliver the care you need to feel your best as a woman. To learn more about the personalized women’s health care you can receive at Kumar Quality Medical Care, call the office or schedule a visit online today.
