When you visit Genesis Women’s Health Services and Dr. Wilburn for the first time, you’ll receive a quick physical exam, a pap test, a breast exam, and testing for STDs if the doctor feels that it is necessary, or you request it. Gynecological exams began between the ages of 13-16 or younger if the young women are sexually active.
