Preventive care is a smart, simple way to take care of yourself. It focuses on helping you stay healthy through regular checkups, screenings and lab work. It also identifies health concerns in the early stages, when they’re most treatable.

Our preventive care services include:

  • Annual wellness exams
  • Breast and pelvic exams
  • Screening for sexually transmitted diseases
  • Birth control information

Birth control

We provide birth control and counseling services. Birth control is a way to prevent pregnancy until you’re ready to have a child. Our goal is to help you choose a birth control method that fits your needs and lifestyle. 

We offer the following methods:

  • Birth control pills (a medication taken daily)
  • Depo-Provera (hormone shots given every few months)
  • Diaphragm (a cup placed inside the vagina to block sperm)
  • Nexplanon (a small rod placed under the skin that provides birth control for several years)
  • Intrauterine device (IUD; a tiny, t-shaped piece of plastic inserted into the uterus)
  • Tubal ligation (a surgery that provides permanent birth control; also known as having your tubes tied)
