Women's Health Q&A

What is women’s health?

The all-women team at Northeast Florida Internal Medicine takes a holistic and integrative approach to women’s health. They understand the factors that influence your health and well-being and provide the necessary, supportive services to manage your health.

What are women’s health services?

As an internal medicine practice that has primary care services to manage women’s health, the Northeast Florida Internal Medicine team offers:

Annual physicals

Your annual physical is an evaluation of your overall health. During the exam, your provider assesses your current health and risks of future health problems.
