Personalized Gynecologic Services for Women

Trisha Halvorsen, MDThe expert gynecology team at Skagit Regional Health has the extensive training and experience to diagnose and treat the many common and not-so-common health conditions and challenges of women today. Gynecology, also called GYN, is a medical field that focuses on the female reproductive system. A GYN checkup is an annual health check, like a dental checkup or an eye exam.

Comprehensive Care for Women at Every Age

Our gynecology team at Skagit Regional Health offers an exceptional patient-centered experience as they provide care for women of all life stages, including:

  • Adolescence or the transitional stage of physical and psychological growth that occurs at puberty or about age 13 to 18 years
  • Childbearing years or the average reproductive years between 21 and 51
  • Perimenopause, beginning between 8 to 10 years before menopause, and the transition to menopause
  • Menopause, a normal stage in life when a woman stops having her monthly period, usually in a woman’s late 40s to early 50s
  • Post-menopause or the years after menopause

Whether we’re providing routine health examinations, diagnosis and treatment of minor disorders of the female reproductive system or treating malignancies of the female genital tract, we offer women a high-quality health care experience.

Complete Breast Health Services

Skagit Regional Health women’s health services offer complete breast health services, including routine and diagnostic mammograms using digital technology. Mammograms can help detect breast cancers in the earliest, most treatable stages. Our digital mammography allows radiologists to gain a more advanced image than conventional mammography to evaluate breast health and any possible areas of concern.

Our women’s specialists also offer several other breast health services including stereotactic breast needle biopsy, ductograms and preoperative needle localization. Diagnostic breast ultrasound, as well as ultrasound-guided procedures, are performed on-site. For any need, our team provides comprehensive breast health services.

A Proactive Approach to Well-Woman Exams

  • Gynecologic tests and procedures
  • Incontinence
  • Low libido
