Well Woman Exams
A well-woman exam is an annual examination that ensures you are healthy with a particular focus on your sexual and reproductive health. It is also an opportunity to discuss any concerns or questions you have such as contraceptives, testing for STDs and STIs, or symptoms that may indicate a hormonal imbalance or a greater women’s health condition.
During your well-woman exam, we may also do preventive screenings for cervical cancer, endometrial cancer, breast cancer, and colorectal cancer to ensure optimal health and wellbeing.
We will check for any underlying causes of your symptoms or concerns and prescribe effective treatment options that fit your lifestyle and needs.

At Daniel Niku, MD, MS we are proud to help our patients who are going through menopause. Most women experience menopause naturally after the age of 45, though symptoms can begin earlier. During this time women typically stop having a monthly period as the ovaries stop producing progesterone and estrogen. Common symptoms women experience during menopause include hot flashes, vaginal dryness, difficulty sleeping, mood swings, hair loss on the head and growth on the face, and difficulty focusing.
We know that these changes to the body can be difficult to navigate, and we are here for our patients who are learning to cope with menopausal symptoms. We take patient health and wellbeing very seriously, and we will carefully consider your medical and family history before recommending treatment for your symptoms. Be sure to let your doctor know if you are at an increased risk for osteoporosis, breast cancer, or heart disease, as these are important considerations when creating a treatment plan.
Don’t spend another day feeling less than yourself… If you are experiencing symptoms associated with menopause, contact us today at (310) 652-9347. We would love to help you!

A Pap Smear is a test that is usually performed yearly after a woman turns 21 or becomes sexually active. The test is a simple, quick collection of cells. While a Pap Smear is not a diagnostic test for cervical cancer, it can detect any abnormalities which can then lead to further testing.
