Flu Shot Season is Here!

We now have Flu shots available to all patients that request to have one. We do recommend that every pregnant patient and patients over 65 recieve a flu shot.  ACOG (The Association of Obsetrics and Gynecology) does highly recommend a flu shot for every pregnant patient to prevent illnesses and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) does recommend the shot for all patients 65 and older. Don’t hesitate to ask for one on your next visit!

Have Cancer in the family?

Many women (and men) remain at increased risk of cancer and are unaware of lifesaving medical options available to them. Your personal and family history of cancer matter and hereditary cancer testing saves lives. As board-certified Ob Gyn Specialists, we recognize the importance of the identification and management of patients with elevated cancer risks. We have incorporated risk assessments and genetic testing into our practice years ago and would love to tell you how genetic testing has evolved in recent years and how it has become a benefit to our patients.  If you are interested in assessing your own risk, please take the quick survey below.

Tips for Surviving Your Work Outs

Reaching your fitness goals can be incredibly challenging. It requires dedication and a commitment to sometimes lengthy workouts on a consistent basis. And that’s aside from making the necessary changes to your diet.

For many people it can be rough trying to reach a challenging fitness goal and having a truly worthwhile workout. So, how can you train your mind and body to workout longer and harder than you’ve done in the past?

  • Don’t Forget to Rest

For someone eager to reach their fitness goals, it can be hard to allow yourself a day or two each week to rest. It happens to be an absolutely critical part of the fitness process. Failing to take at least a couple days each week to rest your muscles could lead you to physical and mental exhaustion and could leave you with a physical injury.

  • Keep Moving

If you want to boost your chances of reaching your fitness goals, whatever they may be, don’t let off the throttle when in the middle of a workout. By reducing the amount of rest time between sets, you’ll keep your heart going and increase your chances of burning fat and calories.

  • Stay Focused

To get the most out of your workouts and increase your chances of having longer and more intense exercise sessions, give those workouts the respect they deserve. That means scheduling your workouts in, and treating them like an important meeting you might have in your job. In other words, dedicate a set amount of time to your workout, and don’t let anything distract you. Avoid all calls—unless they’re emergencies—and try to avoid flipping around the internet and text messages on your phone.

  • Concentrate on Intense Exercises

Here’s one of the best tips you’ll ever learn as you inch closer to your fitness goals: not all exercises are created equally. Some are just far more intense, which means they have the potential to build muscle faster, get heart rate up quicker, and help you burn fat and calories more efficiently. Ideally, you focus on exercises that work multiple muscle groups in a short period of time.

  • Don’t Run on Empty

To enjoy a longer and harder workout, you should avoid starting your routine on a completely empty stomach. At the same time, you should carefully avoid overeating prior to getting physical. Ideal pre-workout meals are actually closer to snacks, and include energy bars, smoothies, fruit, and salads. You could also benefit from a jolt of caffeine, so consider pairing your moderate meal or snack with a cup of coffee.

Did you know?…

Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) can dramatically affect a woman’s comfort, confidence and quality of life.  We are helping women reclaim their lives with a simple procedure called Novasure endometrial ablation.  This is a safe, simple solution used by more than 2 million women since it was FDA-approved in 2001.

One in five women live with very heavy periods. Periods that get in the way of everyday life. Periods that keep you from the people you love and the things you enjoy. NovaSure endometrial ablation is a one-time, 5-minute procedure that can lighten – or end your heavy period – without on-going pills and without hormonal side effects. For over 90% of women, menstrual bleeding is dramatically reduced or stopped. Maybe it’s time to step back into life. Ask about the procedure today!
