Mission Statement:

Provide personal, timely, compassionate, and competent care in Family Medicine.


It's one of the leading causes of death in the U.S, and certainly most people worry about it a little bit.


Come in and discuss the ways in which we can screen for and prevent cancer in you!  Each person's risk of developing cancer is different, and only a detailed history, family history and exam can determine the screening program that's right for you.


Common screening recommendations for people at average risk include:

  • Testicular exam in adolescent and young adult males
  • Pap smear in sexually active women every year, until in a monogamous relationship with normal
  •     Paps for 10 years, at which point we can discuss less frequent check ups.
  • Considering Gardasil, the new vaccine against human papillomavirus (HPV) as prevention against
  •      the strains of HPV most likely to cause cervical cancer
  • Mammogram and clinical breast exam yearly starting at age 40-50 
  • Colon cancer screening via colonoscopy or flexible sigmoidoscopy starting at age 50
  • Prostate cancer screening via rectal exam with or without PSA starting at age 40-50.

Please note that these are for your general information only, and should not substitute for discussions with your doctor.
