Finding a gynecologist can be a daunting task for any woman.

At Elite Health Center and Family Care, our female gynecologists offer the preventative screenings and interventional services you need to protect and maintain your intimate health.
How do I find a new gynecologist?
The first stop for many patients looking for a new doctor is their health insurance provider. By looking at your specific plan coverage on your insurance provider’s website, you can often narrow your search to gynecologists who are covered by your health plan. Many women will also ask friends or relatives for provider recommendations or check online review websites to find a gynecologist who offers exceptional bedside manner or other factors that are important to them. At Elite Health Center and Family Care, we also understand that many women are most comfortable with a female gynecologist or OBGYN, so we have a female-centric staff that can offer the care you need in a comfortable and confidential space.
Are appointments with my gynecologist covered by insurance?
Because it is considered a preventative measure to protect your health, your annual well woman exam is covered 100% by insurance. This means that you will have no out-of-pocket expense for this vital appointment if you choose an in-network gynecology provider. However, other appointments with your gynecologist for specific issues or specialized follow-up care may not be totally covered by your provider. The best way to determine whether an upcoming appointment will be covered by your insurance is to contact your insurance company and ask specifically. Your gynecologist may also be able to tell you when scheduling follow-up appointments whether you can expect to pay out-of-pocket for the specific treatments or procedures you will be undergoing.
How do I find the best gynecologist/OBGYN care?
For many women, the best place to begin seeking a gynecologist or OBGYN you can trust is to ask friends or family for recommendations. You can also speak with a trusted primary care physician about doctors they have worked with and would recommend. However, it is important to remember that your gynecologist or OBGYN should be an expert with whom you feel comfortable discussing difficult topics. The doctor your mother thinks is a perfect fit may not be right for you, and that is okay. The relationship you have with your gynecologist or OBGYN will be one of the most important healthcare resources you ever have, so taking the time to find the perfect provider for you is essential.
What happens at a gynecologist appointment?
Most women will see their gynecologist once a year for their annual well woman exam. There are several parts to this exam that are designed to evaluate your overall health and well-being. Following a health history discussion, your gynecologist will perform a breast exam to check for any lumps or irregular tissue that may indicate breast cancer. Then, they will perform both a bimanual and a speculum exam to assess the health and function of your internal sex organs. For women over the age of 21, a pap smear will not be part of your exam every year, but when necessary, your doctor will take a small sample of cells from your cervix to test for cancer and other abnormalities.
