Women's Health Q & A

What is women’s health care?

Women’s health care with Dr. Pearlstein includes evaluations, preventive medicine, diagnoses, and treatments for common women’s health concerns many women experience at some point. Dr. Pearlstein has over 20 years of medical experience, and she’s highly trained in women’s health. 

What are common women’s health concerns?

Medical conditions that many women face at certain times in their lives include:

  • Breast, cervical, or ovarian cancers
  • Gynecological problems
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Diabetes
  • Excess body weight
  • Infertility

With medical management, you can still live a healthy, happy life despite having a women’s health problem. Some such problems are treatable, while you can properly manage others with lifestyle changes, medications, or medical procedures.

What should I expect during women’s health exams?

During women’s health exams, Dr. Pearlstein often completes the following:

Vital signs check

When you arrive at her office for a women’s health exam, Dr. Pearlstein weighs you and checks your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs. 

Medical history review

During a medical history review, Dr. Pearlstein asks about your personal and family history of disease, medication regimen, possible symptoms, and lifestyle habits.

Physical exam

Dr. Pearlstein provides physical exams and Pap tests, when necessary, to screen for breast cancer, cervical cancer, general health problems, and gynecological problems in women.

Disease screening

In addition to high blood pressure and cervical cancer screenings, Dr. Pearlstein can screen you for osteoporosis, arthritis, high cholesterol, STDs, hormone imbalance, heart problems, and more. 

She might recommend blood tests, urine tests, heart- and lung-function testing, STD tests, bone scans, ultrasounds, or other imaging procedures. Dr. Pearlstein lets you know if you’re a candidate for a mammogram to screen for breast cancer.


Dr. Pearlstein offers preventive medicine and other treatments for common women’s health concerns.
