Gynecological exams are valuable to adolescents in many ways. It is important for young women to be assessed early, especially if they are sexually active, and to begin a relationship with a doctor that may guide them through many important times in their lives. RWC provides special care and confidentiality to his younger patients.
A typical adolescent exam includes a consultation, a full medical assessment and a minimally invasive exam depending on the specific patient. If the patient is not sexually active, the pelvic exam may be modified or may not be required. Since a gynecological exam may be overwhelming for a teenager, RWC will make sure to carefully and thoroughly explain the exam process and answer any questions the patient may have. He will also answer any concerns the patient may have about their bodies as they enter adulthood. RWC is sensitive with their younger patients and works hard to develop their trust and hopefully begin a long lasting relationship.
