Women’s Health and Wellness

Women who take control of their health empower themselves to live longer, disease-free lives. A lifetime of good health starts with prevention, including annual wellness exams and screenings. Dr. Hessel will be your partner in prevention, offering you advice for healthy living and providing important screenings designed to identify complications and illnesses during their earliest stages. From adolescence to post-menopause, a woman’s health demands care and attention at all stages of life.

Health and Wellness

Women’s healthcare is for all females of reproductive age or older. If you are healthy and symptom-free, Dr. Hessel can help keep you that way with periodic screenings, immunizations, and advice for healthy living. Keep in mind that sometimes underlying health problems present no symptoms at all; so it is important to schedule a wellness exam each year.

Well Woman Visits

The components of your visit will vary according to your age. Young women, for example, require annual pap smears, pelvic exams, breast exams, and possible immunization against HPV. Ladies over age 25 may begin to get pap smears less frequently, although they will begin mammogram screenings by age 40. Dr. Hessel will also speak with you about your health concerns, risk for certain diseases, and contraception needs if applicable.

Body Composition Analysis

Body composition analysis refers to measuring your body composition, generally known as your body muscle, fat, and water. Instead of focusing on a single number  on your scale, body composition analysis allows you to focus on losing body fat and  gaining muscle while retaining the proper amount of body water in specific areas of  your body. Click here to learn more
