To schedule an appointment, please call 984-222-8000. We have staff who are fluent in Spanish, Mandarin, and Arabic.
A visit to your healthcare provider is recommended yearly for annual screening and anytime you have concerns about any symptoms you may be experiencing.
Depending on the reason you’re coming in, the preparation may vary. General guidelines include:
If you have gynecological concerns, we may require a pelvic exam. Do not douche, have sex, or put anything in your vagina for 24 hours prior to your pelvic exam. For further questions, call NeighborHealth Clinic at (984) 222-8000.
For testing and treatment of urinary tract infections (UTIs), we will need to collect a urine sample at the time of your visit.
For prenatal visits, check out the information on our prenatal care page.
Time can vary depending on your concerns and what tests need to be done but typically from 15 to 45 minutes. The physical portion of the exam lasts, on average, around 10 minutes, with plenty of time to talk through any concerns you may have with your doctor.
Your provider will ask a variety of questions to understand your medical history, your family’s medical history, and any concerns you want to discuss. These questions will help make sure you get the best care possible, and it’s important to be as honest as you can.
