New Hope for Women with Ovarian Cancer

Print

A recent medical article reviewed that the ten year survival rate of patients who were treated for ovarian cancer has been increasing and now may be approaching 30%.  This is an exciting report, and it suggests that the current medical and surgical treatments are starting to have a positive effect on survival rates.

Early diagnosis is still most important when dealing with any cancer and especially ovarian cancer.  Remember to visit your health care provider if you are experiencing increased gastrointestinal bloating or if your “stomach” is just not right.

Urgent Gynecological Care

…..I am excited to tell you about a new service offered here at our practice.  We realize that women have become very busy with commitments to family, work, and community.  The pressures of career demands, managing a household, taking care of the children, and day-to-day responsibilities can make life hectic at times.  This can make scheduling urgent doctor’s visits a hassle.

Urgent Gynecological Care

…..Therefore, I am happy to announce a new program called urgent gynecological care.  This means that immediate appointments are now available 6 days a week.  In gynecology offices, when a patient calls to make an appointment, many times she cannot see her OB/GYN for a few weeks or even months.  This can have a negative impact on her health if immediate attention is needed.

…..Call us and we will be happy to set up an appointment.  I am looking forward to caring for your special need.
