1. Do the doctors treat children and men as well as women?

3. What are your hours?
4. Do you take my insurance?
5. Can I get a PAP and physical done?
Yes! We do PAP tests and routine physicals. Women’s health problems such as PMS, irregular cycles, ovarian cysts, infertility, perimenopause, recurrent miscarriage, pelvic pain and post-partum depression are addressed in a way that cooperates with a woman’s body and is never suppressive or destructive of her fertility. As family physicians, we do not do surgery, but we have relationships with excellent surgeons for referral if surgery is needed.
We recommend an annual preventive exam for men, women and teens to review their health status and see if there is anything that should be done or continued to maintain or improve your health status. Most insurance plans now also encourage and cover this service, including Medicare.
6. Do the doctors treat hormonal problems? Do you prescribe Bioidentical Hormones?
7. What is NaPro TECHNOLOGY?
NaPro TECHNOLOGY is a new women’s health science, developed at the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction in Omaha, Nebraska. 30 years of research has culminated in the development of this system of evaluation and treatment that cooperates with a woman’s reproductive system. The Creighton Model FertilityCare System is the method of observing and charting biomarkers of the fertility cycle. This information is the basis of evaluation and treatment in NaPro TECHNOLOGY. We have teachers of the method (FertilityCare Practitioners) on staff as well as we can refer you to a teacher if you are out of our area.
8. How is NaPro TECHNOLOGY different from what other doctors do?
9. What is OMT?
10. What treatments are available for PMS, post-partum depression, infertility, menopausal symptoms?
Each case is evaluated individually. We will have an initial consultation to understand the scope of your concern, previous evaluations and treatments and a thorough history. For infertility and PMS, you will be referred for instruction in the Creighton Model FertilityCare System to learn to chart your biomarkers. After two cycles (about two months), we will continue the diagnostic work-up. This may involve a targeted hormone series of blood tests timed with your cycle and possibly ultrasounds timed with your cycle also. A treatment plan is developed and we will modify it as we see your response.
For Post-partum depression, treatment is instituted as soon as possible utilizing natural progesterone which will not interfere with breastfeeding and other treatments as appropriate to each case.
For the menopausal woman, we utilize Bioidentical hormones in the lowest dose possible for symptom remission to achieve hormone balance and wellness.
