"I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Campbell-Arrendell and the Inova staff. I don't understand the previous reviews. They were professional yet friendly, efficient and caring, and have made concerted efforts to make an awkward situation as nonthreatening and comfortable as possible...and didn't waste any of my time. It was a pleasant surprise, given my past experiences in other facilities. I am grateful they accept my insurance."
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.
