The Most Important Things to Ask Your Provider

The Most Important Things to Ask Your Provider

Have you ever wondered how to find a credible and trustworthy provider for your pelvic health treatment? With so many med spas and other providers offering services, the choice can seem overwhelming at first. Dr Hettiarachchi and the team at the Charlotte Center for Pelvic Health care deeply about your quality of treatment. Here are five questions that Dr. H recommends you ask before committing to a facility.

Do you offer a number of different vaginal, incontinence, and libido treatments?

It is important that your provider has knowledge and experience in several areas of pelvic health. Asking this question can start to give you an idea of their qualifications.

Do you provide a consultation, including examination and evaluation, by a physician prior to treatment?

Consultations are an indispensable part of the treatment process. A physician must be familiar with your specific case in order to give the most thorough and effective treatment possible.

Are the treatments provided by a urologist/urogynecologist who is board-certified in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS)?

There are lots of options for providers of pelvic treatments, but not many of them have the distinction of a board certification. Ask this question to ensure that you are making an appointment with a doctor who is as qualified as possible to treat you.

Have you been providing non-invasive vaginal treatments for three or more years?

Make sure that you schedule your procedure with someone you can trust! Experience matters, and you can give yourself a better chance at an effective treatment process if you choose a physician who is confident treating whatever condition you may have.

Does the physician monitor the the treatment response/results and adjust the laser accordingly?

Treatments like the MonaLisa Touch are highly individualized (this is part of the reason that a consultation is so critical). Additionally, a qualified physician must be paying attention to your condition during the treatment in order to help the laser work most effectively.
