Adolescent Gynecology

Many young women have special needs and concerns about changes in their bodies. Dr. Anoina specializes in adolescent gynecology and provides the kind of one-on-one care young women want in an atmosphere that allows them to feel comfortable talking about their health. In addition to performing the first pelvic exam, Dr. Anoina explains to the young patient the different changes that will occur over the next several years.
