"I am the type that will avoid the gyno for 10 years because of the trauma that it induces. Dr. Roller was recommended by my GP and I am so glad I went for it! She was so kind and caring. She speaks like a knowledgeable mom and show's you everything that will happen. She will stop when you tell her. She makes appointments same day if it's an emergency. I love this doctor!"
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.
