Wellness Visits
1 hour - $200

Your wellness visit is focused on you, your body, and your reproductive health. Wellness visits are also called gynecological exams, pelvic exams, annual exams, or well woman exams. If you have a vulva, breasts, or a uterus, these visits are an important part of taking care of your health.

01

Health Check-in

It’s a good idea to have your first wellness visit with a gynecology provider around age 15. Your provider will check your height, weight and blood pressure. You might talk about your period, your moods, and overall health and lifestyle; plus receive a regular physical exam (listening to heart, lungs, and palpating on your abdomen). If you’re sexually active (meaning you’ve had vaginal, anal, or oral sex), you may talk about birth control or STD testing.

02

Gynecology Screenings

During a wellness visit, you will discuss some specific cancer-related tests and exams that we offer. The type of tests and exams depend on your age and medical history: 

  • Ages 21- 24: It is recommended to start having pap testing performed (even if you aren't sexually active), and should be completed every 3 years.

  • Ages 25 to 65: HPV test (or a Pap and HPV test together) every 5 years if normal.

  • Ages 25 to 39: Clinical breast exam every 1 to 3 years

  • Ages 40 to 50: Clinical breast exam every year and start getting a mammogram every 1 to 2 years.

Birth Control Refills

While you're at your yearly wellness visit, you can have your birth control refilled for the year and trouble-shoot issues if you're having any! If you're thinking you might need to switch birth control types completely, you should also make a separate visit to fully discuss what is available, their side effects and benefits, and decide which method is best for you!

Annual Screening Labs

We can draw your annual labs and make recommendations for lifestyle changes, and send referrals to specialists for abnormalities found in lab screening tests. These tests are typically covered by insurance!

Super Health Food

We are currently a cash-pay midwifery practice, with payment accepted at the time-of-service. We are considered “out-of-network” with most insurance providers. Labs collected are typically covered by insurance, and are billed by the lab (AEL). If it is possible to file for reimbursement with your insurance, then this can only be done at the completion of care (please feel free to request a "super bill" for services). We cannot guarantee any insurance payout. I have put in applications to become an in-network provider with several insurance companies (such as Medicaid, BCBS, United Healthcare, and Tricare) and will announce when they have been cleared for billing. This business accepts cash and check, as well as cash sending apps (e.g. Venmo, PayPal, Apple Pay, etc.) and most major credit cards (including HSA cards).  If paying with card, a 3% fee will be applied to each payment (excluding HSA).
