Wellness and Preventative Care

At the Nest we believe that women are more than just a uterus, and we provide more than just a pap smear. We take a thorough health history and do a complete physical exam. We ask about your sleep, exercise, diet, and lifestyle habits because we know how important those issues are to your overall health. We screen for relationship problems and provide counseling referrals when needed. Here is a list of the types of preventative care/wellness visits that we offer:

  • Yearly exams (in which the whole hour is spent with the provider)
  • Menopause counseling and treatment
  • PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder) screening and counseling
  • Routine lab tests, mammograms, and pap smears ordered
  • Pre-conception counseling, basic fertility counseling and lab tests
  • Dietary and/or weight loss counseling, with referrals to Registered Dieticians as needed
  • Full prescriptive authority in Alaska, for medication management
  • Complete maternity care, including prenatal, delivery, and postpartum
