Although women tend to live longer on average than men, women also tend to neglect their own health, putting their children’s needs, career and home obligations before medical needs all too often. Rodriguez MD Medical Practice physicians Veronica and Deborah Rodriguez dedicate much time, study and experience to women’s health issues and treatments in their Lawrenceville family practice.
Some diseases and conditions are more prevalent in women, such as osteoarthritis, depression and obesity. There are also many diseases and conditions that are unique to women too. Some of the gynecological problems that Rodriguez MD Medical Practice manages include pelvic pain, heavy periods, PMS, frequent periods and more.
Our Gwinnett physicians are trained to test, diagnose and treat many of the most common (and some that are uncommon) women’s health issues so that patients can stay on the track to wellness and health, no matter how busy they may be with other pressing matters.
Women’s health covers a variety of illnesses, conditions and diseases, ranging from maternal care during pregnancy to performing early detection procedures for treating breast, uterine, ovarian and cervical cancers. Along with many other conditions, a large part of women’s health involves menopause and the changes and symptoms that come along with this time in a woman’s life. Even though a woman technically reaches menopause when she has not had a menstrual cycle for one year, the symptoms and changes that signal this change can start several years prior.
Some of these issues and symptoms that women’s health care doctors in Lawrenceville GA often address include hot flashes and night sweats, painful menstrual cramps, changes in periods, difficulty sleeping, depression, vaginal dryness and/or yeast infections, mood swings, breast examinations and many others. Many conditions or symptoms that you may be suffering from may very well be linked to one of the particular women’s health issues that are common, so if you have unanswered questions or are concerned about any symptom or sign that you cannot pinpoint the cause of, it is important that you call our Lawrenceville doctors for an appointment.
It is important that women always exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, drink plenty of water and get plenty of sleep, too. However, many women find it incredibly difficult to always take as good of care of themselves as they should. It is important that you talk with your Gwinnett doctor about how to best address any issues, symptoms, illnesses or conditions you may have so that you can properly begin to take care of yourself.
