“While in school, I established a relationship with a healthcare provider who turned out to be a wonderful mentor and friend…Preventive health screenings, like the Pap test, were always a topic of conversation between she and I. Before the introduction of the Pap test, cervical cancer used to be the #1 cancer killer of women. Now it is #15. I advise my patients to schedule for their exam every 3 to 5 years, depending on their gynecological history…I strongly encourage all women to have an open dialogue with their gynecologist or primary care provider, about the most appropriate time for them to schedule a Pap test.”
