Treating The Whole Woman
At Saint Michael's, we believe in treating the whole woman—body,
mind, and soul—offering diagnostic, treatment, wellness, education,
and quality-of-life improvement services for the family. We also cater
to a woman’s busy life, supporting her needs to coordinate her many
other obligations. This is why we offer a continuum of care to ensure
that we are helping you each step of the way in all your health care needs.
We offer women personalized attention and extraordinary, customized service
through our dedicated team of health care professionals.
Preventative medicine, such as testing and screening, is at the heart of
our women’s healthcare programs as regularly scheduled examinations
can help identify potential medical issues before they become critical.
While Saint Michael’s offers generalized health tests for males
and females through our Primary Care Center, there are a series of special
exams and screenings offered especially for women. These include:
- A pelvic exam to check if internal female organs are normal by feeling
their shape and size.
A cervical exam, which can be performed in two stages:
- A digital colposcopy can be performed using a light and a low-power microscope
to visually detect abnormalities in the cervix. If any are found, our
team of medical experts will consult the patient regarding the appropriate
- Pap test, in which a small amount of tissue cells are extracted and examined
for cancer or other potentially serious medical conditions.
- A breast exam to check for cancer by feeling and looking at the breasts.
This can lead to a recommendation that a mammogram be performed at The
Connie Dwyer Breast Center.
If any of these screenings indicate the need for further
surgery or other specialized procedures, Saint Michael’s medical staff consists
of top-notch medical specialists in areas that greatly impact women’s
Our patient-centered team will coordinate every step of the healthcare
process and will treat each patient and family member with the care and
dignity they deserve to ensure the best possible experience and medical outcome.
