Dear Friends and Patients, As the COVID-19 scenario unfolds, we at WHSNT are putting extraordinary precautions in place to protect our patients. We continue to take all recommended CDC sterilization and disinfecting guidelines, as we always do. In light of the recent COVID-19 outbreak, we are also taking additional measures to ensure your health and safety. We have sinks and soap in every exam room and multiple hand sanitizer stations throughout the office for your use. We are asking that everyone come to your appointment alone, if at all possible. We understand some people need a driver or may be forced to bring a child given the school closures, but in order to minimize risk of exposure, we are asking that you please come to your visit alone. We also ask that you arrive on time to your appointment, rather than early, to avoid patients congregating in the waiting room. We will make every attempt to immediately escort you to your own exam room that has just been disinfected by our team. We are screening our patients on arrival for fever, chills, cough, congestion, breathing issues, and recent travel. If you are feeling the least bit under the weather, please call us to reschedule your appointment for a later date. Your health and safety are our top priority and minimizing the number of people you are in contact with is your best protection now. We take pride in our excellent sanitation practices, and will continue to go the extra mile as we navigate this together. We at WHSNT are essential workers and will continue to provide care during this time. We are putting every precaution in place to protect ourselves so we can continue to serve our patients and our community. This issue is rapidly evolving and we will keep you updated as we learn more. WHSNT supports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) patient care guidance issued on March 17 and the efforts of state and local authorities to combat the COVID-19 outbreak. Also, of critical importance are immediate efforts to assure access to essential health care, including urgent and emergent care provided by OB/GYNs, which can alleviate burdens on primary care clinics and emergency departments. Beginning Wednesday, 3/25/2020, the following change will be put in place in order to minimize the exposure of both the patients and staff while still providing the community with essential OB/GYN care. We will only see Gynecology patients with an urgent, emergent, or time sensitive problem and OB patients. All routine wellness/preventative visits will be cancelled. If you have medications that need to be refilled, or a problem that needs to be addressed sooner, please contact our office. We have Telehealth visits available and are seeing patients in the office that need care that cannot be provided remotely. As soon as the CDC announces it safe for routine office visits to resume, we will contact you to arrange WWE/preventative visit. With prayers for good health, WHSNT Management

Providing Care and Support through Menopause

We want to be there for you through every stage of your life, beginning with puberty and extending all the way through menopause. We know that facing menopause or peri-menopause can be daunting, as it signifies a change in something that you have seen as a normal part of your life for several decades. This natural process can bring about an array of new and complex emotions that you may need help in dealing with, and our physicians want to be there for you to provide the resources and support you need to feel calm and confident throughout this process. You may be experiencing the early stages of menopause if you encounter one or more of the following:

  • Cessation of menstruation
  • Hot flashes / Night sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Uncharacteristic irritability

Just because this is a natural biological process does not mean it will be easy to go through alone. At Women's Health Specialists of North Texas, our physicians are up to date on the latest hormone treatment options, and we can work with you to develop a plan to make menopause so much easier on you and your family.

Prompt Diagnosis and Treatment of Endometriosis

Endometriosis is an incredibly common affliction, with over three million cases reported on average in the United States each year. This disorder is characterized by the formation of uterine tissue in areas outside of the uterus. Despite growing outside of the appropriate area, this tissue continues to behave as uterine tissue in that it thickens, breaks down, and bleeds during each menstrual cycle. Because this tissue has nowhere to go, it can cause intense pain in the affected areas. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it is in your best interest to consult with a qualified gynecologist right away:

  • Pelvic pain in isolation
  • Pelvic pain associated with bowel movement, urination, menstruation, or intercourse
  • Mid-cycle spotting

Endometriosis is treatable with hormone therapy, diet, and pain medication, but a prompt diagnosis is important in preventing any permanent damage to the reproductive system from occurring. Our physicians are trained in the diagnosis of this disorder through physical exams and laparoscopic surgery, and we will work with you to come up with an effective and manageable treatment plan.

Expert Urogynecologic Care

On average, more women suffer from urinary issues, such as incontinence, than men. Unfortunately, over half of the women afflicted with these types of issues choose not to tell their physician about their symptoms and concerns. At Women's Health Specialists of North Texas, we work to create an atmosphere of trust and security in which each of our patients feels safe to openly discuss any issues she may be facing. We feel that your health is too important to neglect, and that honest communication between our physicians and their patients is the key to avoiding and treating medical issues. It is especially important to bring incontinence issues to your doctor’s attention, as they can be symptomatic of deeper problems, including:

  • Neuromuscular disorders
  • Pelvic support issues
  • Urinary tract abnormalities
  • Urinary tract infection

At Women's Health Specialists of North Texas, our physicians are prepared to treat any number of underlying issues that may be causing your incontinence. We have the resources to treat a variety of urinary issues, including:

  • Dysuria
  • Enuresis
  • Incomplete emptying
  • Incontinence
  • Nocturia
  • Urgency
  • Urinary frequency

We will do everything in our power to make you feel comfortable throughout the treatment and recovery process, and to ensure that you receive the best care available.

Providing All-Inclusive Treatments with In-Office Surgical Procedures

At Women's Health Specialists of North Texas, we know that any type of surgery can be stressful. This effect is intensified when patients have to travel to unfamiliar locations and deal with strangers on the day of their operations. To counter this, we offer a number of surgical procedures right here in our office, including:

  • Colposcopy
  • Endometrial ablations
  • Endometrial biopsy
  • Hysteroscopy
  • Permanent birth control implants
  • Polypectomy
  • Removal of abnormal cervical tissue

We want to make absolutely sure that your experience with us is as comfortable and beneficial as it can be from start to finish, and providing these in-house surgical options is just one of the many ways in which we strive to accomplish that goal.
