Keeping you at your best.
Women of all ages can benefit from seeing their physician regularly. The goal is to prevent or manage problems early. A annual well woman exam is a good opportunity for you to discuss with your physician any problems or concerns you may have, whether they involve general health or gynecological issues. Dr. Pearson strives to provide you with the care and resources needed to resolve your concerns and avoid problems. We encourage you to work with your doctor on a regular basis to ensure your wellness and vibrancy!
Women’s healthcare should start early. Whether a teenager is sexually active or not, there are still benefits to early gynecologic care in the teenage population. Young women should feel comfortable and confident that they have a support system within their healthcare provider even before they need a provider. At Joya, care of adolescents includes these common concerns:

At Joya, we are here to ensure whatever these changes are, they are normal, manageable and do not hinder your life. Common concerns in this age group include:
