Our Services


Birth control isn’t one-size-fits-all, so why prescribe it that way? We’ll help you find the contraception option that best fits your lifestyle and health needs. We offer a wide variety of options, including The Pill, Nuvaring, Depo Provera, IUDs, & Nexplanon.

Menstrual Irregularities

Many women suffer from heavy, prolonged or painful periods. If you’re one of them, we can help. Our ability to diagnose the cause and treat it accordingly has helped hundreds of women. There are many options for nonsurgical and outpatient surgical treatments. Call for an evaluation.

Annual Exams

Your annual exam is all about you, your body, and your reproductive health. We’ll discuss your menstrual health, do preventative tests, & talk about any other health concerns or questions you may have. These exams are the best way to get healthy and stay healthy.


Menopause is a natural process that every woman experiences differently. Whether you’re affected by decreased libido, sexual dysfunction, mood swings, insomnia, anxiety, or depression, we’ll help you find relief. We provide counseling through this transition period and also offer safe hormonal options to make sure you feel your best every day.

STI Testing & Vaginal Infections

If you’re worried you may have contracted an STI or have a vaginal infection, testing is the only way to know for sure. Symptoms can include sores or bumps, itching, pain, irritation and/or swelling around your genitals. We offer a full range of STI testing & treatments to help you feel better & prevent any further infections.


Ultrasound images provide valuable information for monitoring, diagnosing, and treating a variety of diseases and conditions. Situations that may call for an ultrasound include monitoring pregnancy, examining the uterus, evaluating blood flow, or determining the cause of menstrual irregularities.
