Health Questions You’re Afraid to Ask — Stephanie Morris, MD

Do you have health questions that you’re uncomfortable asking your doctor? Are you curious about symptoms associated with perimenopause and menopause such as changes in sexual function, body changes and hot flashes? Are you experiencing abnormal uterine bleeding that is bothersome or embarrassing? Are you concerned about having an HPV (Human Papillomavirus) infection or an abnormal pap smear?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then join us for a discussion on some of the top issues patients find difficult to bring up to their doctor. There will be an opportunity to anonymously ask your own questions to be addressed during the talk.
