Common Health Problems

We Can Be Your "Medical Home"

We are always happy to see women for various health concerns, even some that are more of a family practice nature. Many specialists require referrals from a primary care, as do physical therapists, so starting in a setting like this makes sense for most women who do not have known major medical conditions.

In a way similar to a Naturopathic Doctor, our Nurse Practitioners spend adequate time taking detailed health and family histories, and delving into your lifestyle, diet, relationships, work, stress, and other factors that may be contributing to your health issues. We can see women for some hard-to-pin-down problems, and help figure out some likely causes are, and the next best steps to take – problems like insomnia, fatigue, pelvic and abdominal pain, headaches, and so on. As Nurse Practitioners and midwives, we are open to many different models of care, and we offer clients possible solutions from a broad array of choices from both Western and Eastern medicine traditions.

Though we are not a walk-in clinic or urgent care, we always endeavor to see our established clients same day or next day for pressing matters. We are happy to help on a routine or urgent (when appropriate) basis with:

  • Urinary tract infections (UTI)
  • Yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis (BV)
  • Screening and/or treatment for sexually-transmitted infections (STI)
  • Upper respiratory infections (URI), aka colds, and sinus infections
  • Breast exams for lumps, and referral for imaging tests
  • Management of thyroid disease
  • Pelvic and abdominal pain
  • Migraines
