Can a gynecologist be your primary doctor?

You might think that a gynecologist can only help you with problems “down there,” but they can actually provide comprehensive care for women of all ages. In fact, many women choose to make their gynecologist their primary care provider because of the comprehensive services they offer. Here’s everything you need to know about choosing a gynecologist as your primary care doctor.


What Services Does a Gynecologist Provide?

Gynecologists are specially trained to provide a wide range of services for women, including preventative care, reproductive health services, and cancer screenings. They also offer family planning services and can provide guidance on menopause, sexual health, and more. In short, gynecologists offer everything you need to maintain your health and well-being – both physically and emotionally.


What Are the Benefits of Choosing a Gynecologist as Your Primary Doctor?

There are many benefits of choosing a gynecologist as your primary doctor. First, you’ll never have to worry about feeling embarrassed or uncomfortable discussing sensitive topics – your gynecologist has seen and heard it all before! They’re also specialists in women’s health, so you can rest assured that you’re getting the best possible care. Additionally, many gynecologists offer extended hours and weekend appointments so that you can always get the care you need – even if you have a busy schedule.


How Do I Choose a Gynecologist?

When choosing a gynecologist, it’s important that you feel comfortable with them and that they’re accessible when you need them. You should also make sure that they’re affiliated with a hospital or medical group so that you have easy access to additional services if needed. To find the best possible fit for you, schedule consultations with a few different doctors before making your decision.

A gynecologist can be an excellent choice for your primary doctor – especially if you’re looking for comprehensive care and extended hours/weekend availability.
