Female health focuses on the treatment and diagnosis of diseases and conditions that specifically pertain to the physical and emotional well-being of women. Women have unique health issues such as menopause and conditions affecting the female organs. Dr. Salada provides screening and treatment for a number of women’s health issues. The following is a partial list of women’s health issues that Dr. Salada addresses:

The Pap test is done in order to check for the presence of cervical cancer. This screening should start at age 21.
