If you’re a woman diagnosed with cancer or another serious illness, you have specialists to watch over your platelets, lymph nodes, and CT scans. It is unlikely that you have anyone to answer questions about the impact of your illness on you as a woman. Who will address questions like: • Will a blood thinner give me terrible periods? • Can the medications I need cause birth defects? • Can I ever safely get pregnant? • Will I be able to enjoy and give sexual pleasure? • Can hot flashes be controlled without hormones? My colleague Mary Beth and I are experienced OB-GYN clinicians and breast cancer survivors. During and after treatment, let us help you move ahead with a full life as a woman.

Why is a beautiful smile important to a woman? The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry surveys show that 95% of all people believe that a beautiful smile is beneficial both professionally and personally. I have been placing porcelain veneers for 25 years and the change in both appearance and personality in my patients after cosmetic dentistry is completed is astounding. Marriages, remarriages and job promotions frequently happen for individuals who have undergone cosmetic dentistry procedures. The creation of a beautiful smile is life changing.

What if the “photo filters” worked in real life? As an expert in Cosmetic Medicine, my goal is to rejuvenate, restore and maintain our patients’ youthful appearances. Aging causes deep pores, fine wrinkle lines, rosacea, visible capillaries and pigmented areas. Our minimally invasive treatments help to reverse and prevent developing the signs of aging. Our new most advanced Excel-V™ laser precisely targets and eliminates visible acne scars, capillaries, facial and leg veins, discolorations and age spots. Our Genesis-V™ laser minimizes deep pores, fine wrinkle lines and redness. Consider these lasting solutions as an alternative to using heavy concealers. Join our new Healthy Skin Care Club to affordably try different treatments in our office and obtain discounts on injectable and other treatments. Visit www.yarinsky.com and call Steven Yarinsky, MD, FACS – 583.4019.

Planning for a new baby is an exciting and busy time for families. Thankfully, the hospital childbirth experience is changing for the better across our state. Beginning in January, unprecedented state regulations will help to support women in successful breastfeeding and bonding with their newborns. Babies will be placed “skin-to-skin” with mothers as soon as possible after being born, which will help them adjust to life outside the womb. Mothers will have better access to information on the benefits of breastfeeding and receive increased support in initiating breastfeeding if desired. Myrtle Street OBGYN has Certified Lactation Counselors on staff to help expectant mothers embrace this initiative. Visit our website www.myrtlestobgyn.com for more information.

Advanced Audiology Services

It can be quite daunting, not to mention frustrating, trying to make a decision about which hearing aid to buy.  This is where the services of the audiologist can be instrumental in achieving a successful outcome.  The audiologist’s role in selection is to guide and advise the consumer regarding options such as style and level of technology.  One should wind up with “the best hearing aid for me.” Carrying many brands does not necessarily translate into an advantage to the consumer.  More useful information might be the answer to “What kinds of results do you typically get from the hearing aids that you dispense? Are your patients usually satisfied with the outcome?”
