OB/GYN

If you have questions about fertility, your pregnancy, or women’s health concerns, you need to schedule an appointment with an obstetrics or gynecology specialist immediately. Your OB/GYN office can perform PAP smears to screen for cervical cancer and also perform tests for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Work with one of our experienced doctors in Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, La Quinta, and surrounding areas for prenatal care, gynecologic care, and routine health care visits.

Benefits of Working with an OB/GYN

The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends visiting an OB/GYN at the age of 13 to 15 years, or when a girl becomes sexually active. The initial visit typically includes a consultation without an exam. Women may need to undergo an exam or PAP test when they turn 21, or when they have been sexually active for 3 years. Symptoms that may require a visit to the doctor include:

  • Severe pain in the lower abdomen
  • Bad cramps throughout menstruation
