Annual Exams Q & A

Sherry Neyman, MD

What can I expect during an annual exam?

During your annual exam, Dr. Sherry Neyman and her caring all-female staff make you feel welcome from the moment you walk into their boutique setting. After you’re greeted with a hug, the team checks your blood pressure and weight and talks to you about any concerns you may have. Some common questions they typically ask before every physical exam include:

  • When was your last period?
  • Are you sexually active?
  • How long do your periods usually last?
  • Do you have any concerns or questions?

Dr. Neyman recommends different tests and screenings depending on your age, health, and risk factors like family history or lifestyle. For most women, the annual exam includes breast and pelvic exams, a Pap smear, and screenings for certain cancers. During the internal pelvic exam, Dr. Neyman checks the position of your uterus and female organs by feeling the shape, size, and location.

Pap smears screen for abnormal cell activity and any early signs of cervical cancer. A breast exam checks for lumps or abnormalities that may indicate breast cancer. Dr. Neyman also examines the appearance of your vagina for any signs of irritations, cysts, or other problems.

Which other tests are available during my annual exam?

Dr. Neyman and her team value your time, so they make it convenient for you to take care of multiple tests or screenings during the same appointment. When you come in for your annual exam, you can also get a 3D mammogram, bone density test, or pelvic ultrasound if you need them. Since Dr. Neyman doesn’t deliver babies but instead focuses on all aspects of gynecology, she is dedicated to taking care of those who visit her office, without unexpected interruptions.

What else can I discuss during my annual exam?

Dr. Neyman believes in an open doctor-patient relationship so you can take an active role in maintaining your best overall and reproductive health. Some other topics you can discuss during your exam include:

  • Concerns about contraception (birth control)
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Female health conditions, like endometriosis, uterine fibroids, or pelvic prolapse
  • Hysterectomies
  • Minimally invasive surgeries and procedures
  • Preconception counseling
  • Fertility issues
