Primary Care Q & A

Why is it so important to have a primary care provider?

Primary care is the starting point for all of your health services. Working with a skilled primary care provider is like having a personal health “coach” to coordinate all of the services you need to thrive.

Many women choose to use Southdale ObGyn as their primary care provider. The OBGYN practice offers various services, including routine physicals, laboratory screening, vaccines, ultrasounds, and bone density scans. They can also order mammograms and colonoscopies.

Women with complicated medical issues might need to see a specialist. Southdale ObGyn works with you to coordinate care as needed. Practitioners are also able to diagnose and manage depression and anxiety, with a focus on postpartum and perimenopause mental health issues.

Women continue their care with the OBGYN practice long after their families are complete, and they encourage all patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle and minimize health risks.

Is preconception care included in primary care?

Yes. Southdale ObGyn recommends a preconception counseling visit for women of all ages who plan to become pregnant—either for the first time or to add to their families.

They will cover the following topics with you:

  • Your health history
  • Family health history for you and your partner
  • Lifestyle habits for you and your partner

Preconception care should begin at least three months before you become pregnant, but some women need more time to prepare their bodies for pregnancy. Be sure also to discuss your partner's health during your visit.

Many women choose Southdale ObGyn as their primary care provider because of their skilled and friendly staff and range of services.
