Well Woman Exams Q & A

Well women exams are the foundation for wellness, health promotion, and disease identification and management throughout a woman’s life. It is no secret that healthy living and early detection of disease increases not only your length of life but, more importantly, your quality of living.

A periodic well-woman exam for all ages is not just about good medical care, but it also gives you the opportunity to learn more about beneficial health habits, counseling and community support services as well as an overall view of the best ways to take care of yourself and your family for a lifetime.


There’s one vital reason to schedule routine well-woman exams: They help you stay healthy by preventing gynecologic conditions and chronic diseases. Most health problems don’t cause symptoms until they reach an advanced stage.

By the time you experience symptoms and think about scheduling an appointment, it’s too late to prevent the disease. When you go in for annual exams, however, Dr. Samuel Botros detects early signs of a problem while it can still be treated or prevented.

Another important reason for scheduling well-woman exams is that they give you time to talk with Dr. Samuel Botros. You can discuss any concerns you may have, whether you’re thinking about having a baby or you need help with weight loss.


During your well-woman exam, the team at Dr. Samuel Botros, reviews your medical history and checks your weight and blood pressure. In addition to a breast exam and a pelvic exam, Dr. Samuel Botros performs an overall health evaluation. Blood work takes place in the office for routine screening and to further evaluate any concerns discovered during your exam.

During your well-woman exam, Dr. Samuel Botros determines if you need an immunization based on your age, overall health, and standard recommendations. You may need a flu shot, an HPV vaccine, or a hepatitis vaccine.
