Personalized Healthcare for Every Woman, for Every Season of Her Life
It is no secret that women have unique needs when it comes to health care. As women ourselves, we understand how difficult it can be to not only find a provider you like, but find time to see a doctor. All Seasons Family Health Care makes it possible to have both in Wasilla, Alaska. We are open until 6 pm on Wednesdays so you can come after work, and there are three providers to choose from: Ellen Lentz, ANP, Sarah Nielsen, ANP, and Joyce Restad, DO.
When to See a Doctor
For preventive care, most women should see a doctor for a check-up once a year. This gives you and your doctor a chance to catch up and address any concerns in detail. At All Seasons, we are well aware of the age-appropriate lab tests and screenings women need to stay active and healthy.
Important tests for women can check for early signs of osteoporosis, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, including colorectal, skin, cervical, breast, ovarian, uterine, and thyroid cancer.
Common conditions that affect women include:
- Urinary Tract Infection
- Vaginal Infection
- Menstrual Problems
- Pelvic Pain
- Weight Gain / Inability to Lose Weight
- Water Retention
- Anxiety / Depression
- Heart Disease
- Menopause Symptoms
- Decreased Libido
For ongoing health concerns that tend to worsen with age, many are caused by hormone imbalances. If you are suffering from low energy, low libido, mood swings, weight gain, or menopause symptoms, the problem is likely related to hormones. Even digestive issues and food allergies can be hormone-related. We have had a lot of success using bioidentical hormone therapy to resolve many of these conditions.
Based on your symptoms, health history, and physical exam, we can zero in on which hormone or hormones may need to be adjusted. The most common hormones that get out of balance are estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), cortisol, and your thyroid hormones.
Treatment with bioidentical hormones is a safe and effective way to restore balance, so that you can feel like yourself again. Because every woman is different, we’ll monitor your progress routinely to make sure the treatment is working.
