- Women First will be celebrating its 30th year in a big way in 2018, according to Executive Director Denise Kirkham. “The physicians are really proud of caring for multiple generations of women,” she says. They have 11 physicians and 12 nurse practitioners/physician assistants.
- The practice will continue to bring leading edge technology to patients. This past summer, Women First purchased its second 3D Tomosynthesis mammography machine. This enhanced technology will help ensure that breast cancers are found earlier and more accurately.
- Women First continues to provide in-office surgical procedures. Kirkham says its success in this arena is necessitating a need for a bigger surgery suite. Among the procedures offered are diagnostic and surgical hysteroscopy, colposcopy, and the Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP).
