Ob/Gyn Colleen Raymond, MD, encourages patients to visit their OB/GYN once a year. She says an annual gynecologic exam and Pap smear involves more than a cervical cancer screening. There are other important annual screenings your gynecologist performs, including but not limited to breast examination and screening for gynecological problems.
