A Safe Space Where You Can Talk

“A lot happens during your well woman exam,” says Dr. Leah D. TatumObstetrician/Gynecologist at ARC Seton Northwest, in this recent ARC Healthcare Minute podcast. She adds, “Much more goes into this preventive care visit than just getting a pap smear!”

“We check your vitals and discuss screenings for diabetes, STDs, and cancer,” says Dr. Tatum. In addition, during a well woman checkup, we talk about immunizations, do a breast exam, and explore family planning and contraception, she says.

Dr. Tatum adds, “Most importantly, it is a safe space where you can talk to a trusted and educated physician about any questions you might have about your body and your health.” If you would like to make an appointment with Dr. Tatum to schedule your well woman exam, you can do so online or by calling ARC Seton Northwest at 512-338-8181.
