Well-Woman Care and Preventive Health Screenings
Health care needs are not the same for every age group or even everyone in the same age group. Not every woman needs a pap smear; it may be more important to get a mammogram or a colonoscopy. Dr. Nevils can help you decide what health screenings are appropriate for your age and for you personally.
Hormone changes typically start occurring in the forties; periods can become heavier, closer together, or farther apart. This is called perimenopause. Just about anything that happens is considered normal. Hot flashes, sleep disturbances, and mood swings often develop. Dr. Nevils will listen to your concerns and help you determine the best way to manage your perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Despite what you hear on television or read in magazines, there are safe forms of hormone therapy that can ease your menopausal symptoms and even prevent such diseases as osteoporosis and heart disease. Dr. Nevils can help you decide what therapies are best for you.
There are a wide variety of hormonal as well as non-hormonal forms of contraception. Dr. Nevils can help you determine what's best for your lifestyle and health needs.
Nutrition and Nutritional Supplements
A healthy lifestyle is essential to good health and diet is an integral part of that lifestyle. Dr. Nevils has studied nutrition extensively and offers advice as well as a wide range of nutraceuticals for optimal health and aging.

Loss of libido (sex drive) or difficulty achieving orgasm can be a result of hormonal changes due to birth control pills, breastfeeding, or menopause. Dr. Nevils can measure your hormone levels and determine if you would be helped with estrogen, testosterone, or a combination of both. These hormones can be administered through the skin as a cream or as a pellet inserted under the skin.
Dr. Nevils is not a provider with any insurance companies. Payment is expected at the time of the visit. The staff would be happy to file a claim with your insurance company, so that you could get reimbursed.
