Women's Health Information

Aurora Diagnostics offers women outstanding anatomic and clinical pathology expertise and the latest molecular testing available in women’s health. Our community-based laboratories allow us to reduce the wait time for test results. Our reports include your clinical history and correlate all of your laboratory results in a single report. The precise and integrated reporting helps your OB/GYN specialist select the best clinical management approach, given the exact status of your health.

Our expert pathologists and cytopathologists actively confer with treating physicians on matters of diagnosis, the advisability of ordering additional clinical tests, and on questions of general patient management. All abnormal results are reviewed in depth, and the lead pathologist personally calls the treating physician concerning the probable diagnosis.

Over time, most women experience rather dramatic changes in the status of their health. OB/GYN visits are, therefore, absolutely essential in order to address a variety of health-realted issues, and several pathology laboratory tests may be required. Your annual Pap test is far from being the only reason to see your OB/GYN specialist. You must attend to the requirements for annual screening tests, e.g., cytogenetics (the study of normal and abnormal chromosomes) screens to determine the existence of congenital defects, molecular genetics screens to determine the existence of dangerous mutations, e.g., cystic fibrosis; prenatal screens (as applicable), sexually transmitted disease, cardiac (heart health related) tests, and, possibly, specialized tests dealing with such issues as obesity.

Aurora’s partner laboratories strive to deliver the latest, cutting-edge clinical, cytogenetics, and molecular testing available to produce the diagnostic results your OB/GYN specialist absolutely requires. Aurora Diagnostics, an active participant in the provision of women’s health care services, is dedicated to meeting/exceeding the standards of women’s health care recommended by the nation’s leading authorities, such as the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
