"Should I Worry About...?" , "Am I at Risk For...?", "What Does That Mean?"
We created this Web site to provide information and education to help decrease a woman's health concerns: We want to help you categorize symptoms into possible disease categories and then provide information about those diseases or problems. Our emphasis is diagnosis, not treatment. Treatments are complex decisions based on individual needs, treatments change rapidly and many treatment recommendations vary by the goals you and your physician have. These decisions are best left up to you and your personal physician. The information provided on this site is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient/site visitor and his/her existing physician.
We can't diagnose or treat individuals over the Internet, but we we hope to make you an educated patient who can ask your physician the right questions and maximize your health and life.
Our specialty is the reproductive diseases of women, gynecology and obstetrics, but other primary care concerns or illnesses more common in women than men are also included. Please give us your feedback and comments about what questions you have that would relieve or lessen your health concerns.
We especially invite feedback form any health professionals. We want our information to be accurate and up-to-date and any health care provider is not only welcome, but actively solicited to make comments to us to make the Woman's Diagnostic Cyber the most accurate, precise and clearly understandable resource in women's health. Help us to make this a site that you want to return to.
This site is financially supported by Frederick R. Jelovsek MD, d.b.a. Woman's Diagnostic Cyber.
