Preventative healthcare is important for women's health
At Ahkami Medical Group, we subscribe to the notion that it's easier to take preventative steps and defeat a problem in its early phase rather than waiting to treat it when it becomes something more full blown. Preventative health means being proactive: being educated, taking an interest in your long term health, and taking the right steps to ensure that you are setting yourself up for success. Sometimes it can be difficult to know where to start and that's why we are here to help.
We consider our position as a women's health care provider an honor
To this end, we offer a full range of essential gynecological services for women in the Passaic area. Here are some great ways to lead a preventative lifestyle:
- Observe regular health check-ups
- Schedule routine pap smears and mammograms
- Vaccination against common diseases like HPV or hepatitis
- Have regular STD screenings
- Consider birth control as an option if you are sexually active but not ready for children
You can never be too careful caring for your body. We urge you to take control of your health management and protect your future. Our services help ensure that if there is a problem, we will detect it early and set a course for treatment that will ensure you the best chance for overcoming it.
