Care Resource now offers Colposcopy and High Resolution Anoscopy.
According to Care Resource Primary Care Physician Dr. Klara Gershman, “Early diagnosis of conditions leading to anal and cervical cancer save lives. We strongly recommend anal Pap smears for gay men, HIV positive men and women as well as vaginal Pap smears for all women. Above tests are a part of wellness care offered by all our physicians. We also have a team of trained physicians that perform necessary diagnostic procedures for patients with abnormal Pap smears.”
Care Resource providers Dr. Gershman / Zayas and Karell are trained to perform colposcopy ( for vaginal abnormal test) and HRA ( for anal abnormal test) that help to make a more precise diagnosis of the seriousness of the condition and plan the most appropriate course of treatment.
Colposcopy is a procedure to closely examine one’s cervix, vagina and vulva for signs of disease. An anoscopy is an examination used to diagnose some cancers in men.
These tools continue to make it possible for Care Resource to be the medical home to all in need.
