Menopause is a natural biological process that occurs in women. It occurs 12 months after a women’s last menstrual period and marks the end of menstrual cycles and fertility. It typically occurs during a woman’s 40s or 50s and may be preceded by several years of varying symptoms (perimenopause). While some women my experience varying symptoms of menopause that disrupt quality of life, the OB-GYNs of Hoffman and Associates strive to help women stay healthy and vital active during these years.

Because menopause is a natural biological process, it does not require medical treatment. The doctors of Hoffman and Associates work with women experiencing menopause to provide symptom counseling, management and relief. Our OB-GYNs are focused on preventative care, as well as management of chronic conditions that may occur with aging, such as osteoporosis. We provide recommended screenings, such as a colonoscopy and mammography, as well as breast and pelvic exams.
