How do I choose a gynecologist?
You want to make sure your doctor has completed the proper medical education and training and is board certified in gynecology. If it’s important to you to have a doctor with extensive experience, you can research or ask your gynecologist how many years they’ve been practicing medicine or how many times they’ve done certain procedures.
Aside from education and experience, you may also want to consider if your personalities match. You should feel comfortable enough to confide in your gynecologist about vulnerable topics, such as reproductive and sexual health.
Dr. Willen has been practicing medicine for 38+ years, and he’s committed to expanding his knowledge every day. He makes sure to spend enough time with each patient, values shared decision-making, and handles each woman’s needs with respect. By doing so, he has established a reputation as a top gynecologist in his community.
When should I make an appointment with my gynecologist?
Your annual well-woman visit is a great time to see Dr. Willen for any screenings and immunizations you need. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends a yearly pelvic exam for all women over 21 and Pap smears every three years for most women.
Aside from routine care, you should consult with Dr. Willen any time you notice changes or experience pain. Pelvic, menstrual, or sexual pain could be indicative of a treatable reproductive condition. You should also bring up any:
- Changes in period frequency or flow
- Changes in odor
- Bumps and growths
- Vaginal dryness
- Low libido
These aren’t symptoms you have to endure. Dr. Willen can help pinpoint the cause and provide treatment guidance so you can get back to feeling normal. Call Dr. Willen’s office, or go online to schedule your next exam.
