HippoMed Wellness Clinics takes a holistic approach to women’s health care when possible, but understands the importance of using modern medicine when necessary.
The friendly staff greets you when you arrive for a women’s health appointment at HippoMed Wellness Clinics. Providers check your weight, blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs. Dr. Jenks reviews your medical history and asks questions about medications, symptoms you might have, and your lifestyle.
Dr. Jenks completes a physical examination to check for signs of illness or disease. He evaluates your eyes, throat, breathing, heartbeat, abdomen, and reflexes.
During a gynecological exam, Dr. Jenks inserts a speculum into your vagina to evaluate your cervix. Taking a sample of cervical cells allows a lab to screen the cells for signs of cervical cancer.
