Pap (Papanicolaou) Test
One key component of the Well Woman Visit is the Pap Test to check for early signs of cervical cancer. It is recommended that women have a first Pap Test at age 21. Screening is advised once every three years for women 21 – 29 and once every five years for women over 30 who have no history of an abnormal Pap Testing.
Our board-certified nurse practitioners can recommend necessary testing based on your medical history.
HPV (Human Papillomavirus) Vaccine
We offer the HPV vaccine at all of our locations.. HPV vaccine is recommended for routine vaccination at age 11 or 12 years. (Vaccination can be started at age 9.)
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) also recommends vaccination for females aged 13 through 26 years and males aged 13 through 21 years not adequately vaccinated previously.
Vaccination is also recommended through age 26 years for gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men, transgender people, and for immunocompromised persons (including those with HIV infection) not adequately vaccinated previously.
