Why do you request that I arrive 15 to 20 minutes early for my scheduled appointment time?
Arriving early allows you time to complete any paperwork that you may need to fill out. It also allows our receptionist time to check your patient chart and update any information that may have changed since your last visit to us. At Ladies First, we always strive to keep wait times to a minimum. When patients arrive early, it helps us to keep our schedules running on time so that we can provide the best possible service to everyone.

A nurse will call in the refill to your pharmacy or send you a prescription in the mail at your request. If it has been more than a year since your last annual exam, you will need to schedule an appointment with us before we can refill your prescription.

What if my Pap smears are abnormal?
What is a thin prep pap smear and why is it better?
At Ladies First, we use the thin prep pap test. Thin prep is a liquid-based test that allows us to more accurately identify and analyze any abnormalities in your cells. Thin prep has become the preferred test over the conventional pap because it has proven more effective in the detection of abnormal cells. With thin prep, if an abnormality is discovered, we are able to detect and treat it much sooner than we could with traditional pap tests.
