Comprehensive Medical Care For Women’s Health Issues

Our health clinic offers a range of advice and services related to women’s general and reproductive health. We provide our female patients with all of the information, support, and care they need to make informed health choices.

Our female doctor, Dr. Christina Kanagaratnam, has over twenty years of education and experience, and a strong interest in women’s health. Her down-to-earth and understanding demeanour helps put patients at ease, no matter what their health concerns may be.

We provide comprehensive care for women’s health issues, and our patients have the option to choose a female doctor for appointments and exams.


Regular Women's Health Screenings

Dr. Karagaratnam is familiar women’s unique health issues and risk factors. For example, certain conditions such as cardiovascular disease affect and manifest in female patients differently. Our routine health exams also provide screening for conditions that are more common in, or unique to, women.

Breast Exam

During this exam, the doctor checks for any abnormal tissue or changes in the breast. This helps detect and address conditions such as breast cancer early. If you have any concerns regarding breast health, our female physician, Dr. Kanagaratnam, is available to assess you and if necessary, she will refer a patient for further tests, such as a biopsy or mammogram.

Pelvic Exam

During a pelvic exam, also called gynecologic or internal exam, the doctor examines the organs in the pelvis. This helps check for problems such as uterine fibroids or ovarian cysts, or for infections. This exam also enables the doctor to check for the fit of contraceptive devices (such as a diaphragm or IUD).

The pelvic exam may also involve a PAP Test. A PAP test can help diagnose cancerous or precancerous conditions in the cervix or vagina. It can also help detect any inflammation in the lower reproductive tract.

Some other services provided include:

  • Pap Smear
  • Breast Health
  • Contraceptive Advice
  • STD Screening
  • Menopause Symptom Management
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy Counselling

 

Reproductive Health And Family Planning

At Signature Medical Centre, we provide women with advice that allows them to make the right decisions concerning family planning and reproductive health. Dr. Kanagaratnam is accessible to her patients whether it's providing guidance regarding the right birth control options for your lifestyle, or offering prenatal advice during the first 20 weeks of your pregnancy. After 20 weeks, she provides a referral to the appropriate prenatal care provider who will care for you until delivery.
