Hoffman and Associates - OB-GYNs in Baltimore, MD

The OB-GYNs and staff of Hoffman and Associates in Baltimore, Maryland, offer patients comprehensive gynecologic care, providing a number of routine exams, services and diagnostic tests for each stage of a woman’s life. Our physicians encourage patients to take part in their overall gynecologic health by scheduling routine well-woman exams. 

Adolescent Care

The doctors of Hoffman and Associates introduce and guide young women through the beginning stages of adolescent gynecologic care. Our approach for adolescents is focused on prevention and care through the introduction of routine examinations and education. Initial GYN visits for adolescents may not necessitate a physical examination and may not target any one specific condition or symptom other than those natural to the physical maturity of a young woman, but these visits remain an important time for patients to establish a comfortable, long-term relationship with their gynecologist.

Continued Gynecologic Wellness

Gynecologic wellness refers to the routine physical care of a woman’s reproductive system after her transitional stage of physical maturity known as puberty. Generally, this refers to women reaching the end of their teenage years and older.

Scheduling regular visits with your gynecologist is the most important step in maintaining gynecologic wellness. Visits should be completed annually, but may depend on your age and condition, as well as family and personal health history. The gynecologists of Hoffman and Associates strive to tailor gynecologic visits to fit the needs of the individual woman at each stage of her life.

Patients who experience abnormal symptoms, such chronic pelvic pain or an irregular period cycle, should address these issues with their gynecologist. Additionally, it is also very important to discuss any changes in your overall health and lifestyle with your gynecologist.
