What to Expect During Your First Visit to the Obstetrician/Gynecologist

When it comes to women’s health, it’s important to establish a relationship with a trusted obstetrician/gynecologist. If you’re visiting for the first time, it’s natural to feel nervous or unsure about what to expect. Here is a guide to help ease any anxiety and prepare you for your first visit.

Choosing the Right OB/GYN

Before scheduling your appointment, it’s important to find an OB/GYN who you feel comfortable with and trust. Research potential doctors in your area and ask for recommendations from friends, family, or your primary care physician. Consider factors such as insurance, office location, and availability when making your decision.

At Chamblee Obstetrics & Gynecology, we pride ourselves on providing compassionate care and personalized attention to each of our patients. Our team of experienced OB/GYNs strives to make every visit as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Preparing for Your Appointment

Prior to your first visit, you may be asked to fill out paperwork and provide a medical history. Make sure to bring a list of any medications you are taking and any questions or concerns you may have. It’s also a good idea to wear comfortable clothing and avoid scheduling your appointment during your menstrual cycle.

The Appointment

During your first visit, your OB/GYN will likely review your medical history and perform a physical exam. This may include a breast exam and a pelvic exam to check for any abnormalities. Your OB/GYN may also perform a Pap smear to screen for cervical cancer.

It’s important to communicate openly with your OB/GYN about any concerns you may have and to ask any questions you may need answered. Your OB/GYN is there to provide guidance and support for any women’s health issues you may encounter.

Follow-up Visits

After your initial visit, your OB/GYN may recommend follow-up visits to monitor any health concerns or to discuss contraceptive options. It’s important to schedule regular visits to maintain your reproductive health and to catch any potential issues early on.

At Chamblee Obstetrics & Gynecology, we offer a range of women’s health services, from routine check-ups to specialized care. Our team is dedicated to providing the best possible care to each of our patients.


Visiting an OB/GYN for the first time may seem intimidating, but it’s an important step in maintaining your reproductive health. By choosing a trusted and experienced OB/GYN and communicating openly with them, you can ensure that you receive the care and attention you deserve.
