Women’s healthcare is sometimes complicated. With everything else we are constantly juggling in life, many women are guilty of pushing their own health down further and further on the priority list which can lead to serious concerns down the road! We had just a few minutes to chat with three physicians from Ascension Wisconsin about several important topics in women’s health and we got right down to business!
We talked about the difference between a DO and a MD, breast cancer screenings and mammograms, PCOS as well as its symptoms and treatment, and the new Third Ward clinic that patients and providers alike are buzzing about.
