What OB/GYN services can I receive?

Harlandale Clinic provides comprehensive OB/GYN care. They perform routine well-woman visits and help women with any problem affecting their reproductive system. 

Though the team offers walk-in care if you have sudden or severe symptoms, such as pelvic pain or heavy bleeding, it’s also important to schedule annual well-woman checkups.

Yearly exams focus on preventive health care. These checkups allow your provider to find early signs of problems and provide treatment before serious health issues develop.

Routine OB/GYN services available at Harlandale Clinic include:

  • Pelvic exam
  • Breast exam
  • Pap testing
  • Birth control
  • STD testing
  • Pelvic pain evaluations
  • Infertility evaluations
  • Menopause management
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Vaginal infection treatments

Gynecologic care also includes your urinary tract. As a result, the Harlandale Clinic team treats urinary tract infections and urinary incontinence.

As a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist with privileges in many surrounding hospitals in San Antonio, Dr. Dandan frequently performs robotic surgeries, major gynecological surgeries, and minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgeries.

What symptoms indicate I need OB/GYN care?

The Harlandale Clinic team has years of experience diagnosing and treating gynecological conditions such as endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, menstrual disorders, and the many causes of pelvic pain.

Common symptoms of gynecological conditions include:

  • Heavy bleeding
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Bleeding after menopause
  • Irregular or missed periods
  • No menstrual periods
  • Pelvic pain (not due to menstrual cramps)
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Itching, burning, or sores in the vaginal area
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Frequent urination
  • Burning during urination
  • Excessive, dark hair on your chest, back, or face

Getting a prompt evaluation and treatment gives you symptom relief and, most importantly, protects you from health complications. Untreated gynecological conditions can lead to problems such as infertility, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and endometrial cancer.

Does OB/GYN include health screenings?

The Harlandale Clinic team includes health screenings as part of your OB/GYN care. Health screenings include assessing your risk for chronic diseases and tests to detect cancer. For example, a manual breast exam finds lumps, and Pap tests screen for cervical cancer.

They also remind you when it’s time for other health screenings based on your age and risk factors. For example, you may need a mammogram to evaluate a breast lump or bone density testing for osteoporosis.

You can rely on the Harlandale Clinic team for exceptional OB/GYN care. To schedule an appointment, call the office or book online today.
