"The phone staff aren't always as responsive as I'd like, but when they do get back to you they are all extremely nice. Dr. Haverly is great. I moved to Bristol having only received 1 pap smear ever. I tried a different doctor before Dr. Haverly and felt dirty and ended up crying when I left. My friend recommended Dr. Haverly and after I saw her, I was practically giddy with relief when I left because that visit was so night and day compared to the previous doctor. Dr. Haverly talked to me before getting to business and listened to my concerns. She is kind, smiley, personable, and conscious of any monetary concerns you may have if she needs to prescribe something. Love her!"
General obstetrician/gynecologists, or general OB/GYNs, are providers of routine care for women’s reproductive health. They offer regular checkups and preventative care to detect illnesses early and keep women healthy. A general OB/GYN cares for a variety of health issues, including:
Sexually transmitted diseases
Annual breast exams
After the age of 18, it is important to see a general OB/GYN regularly for preventative care as well as any needed pregnancy care. When necessary, general OB/GYNs may refer their patients to related specialists such as a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist or Reproductive Endocrinologist. However, women without complicated health issues may continue to see their general OB/GYN for care throughout their reproductive life.
