reasons why you might see a gynecologist at great city medical

  • Birth Control: Nowadays, you have many birth control options such as pills, hormonal injections, the ring, contraceptive implants, birth control patch, diaphragm, cervical cap, or intrauterine device (IUD).
  • Fibroids: Fibroids are small benign tumors of the uterus. It is believed that 70 to 80 percent of women develop fibroids. Most are symptomless but others lead to difficult menstruation or pain. 
  • Breast Problems: Many women don’t realize that a gynecologist is the type of doctor you normally see if you suffer from breast problems such as a lump or nipple discharge. Even if your family physician examines you and finds a problem, they will typically refer you to a gynecologist for further evaluation and testing.
  • Family Planning: Talking with OB/GYN about your plans to start a family is very beneficial. You might be advised to run testing to rule out any inherited genetic disorders. A full gynecologic exam is also advised to make sure that everything is functioning properly before you embark on your goal of becoming a mother. If there are fertility issues, then they can be addressed at the time of the appointment.

Both new and returning patients can enjoy top-quality medical care with a variety of wellness treatments available as well as ultrasound testing services. Contraceptive counseling is available, and it’s one of the most popular services. A full range of women’s health services and preventative measures are possible at Great City Medical:

Put simply, a GYNO exam is a gynecological exam or a physical exam that checks your overall reproductive health and wellness. Young women need to receive this exam annually starting from ages 18 to 21 or whenever they become sexually active. However, some irregularities like an odd menstrual cycle or severe pelvic pain can warrant a GYN exam sooner. In addition to checking for any pain, the doctor can check your blood pressure and go over your family history as well. Fortunately, these exams are easy and typically take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.

Before your first NYC gynecologist exam as a new patient, it’s helpful to talk to your doctor about your sexual activity, any questions you have about sexually transmitted infections, STDs, contraception methods, and more. This is an understandably uncomfortable procedure, so your obstetrician-gynecologist can help ease nerves and explain the process if it’s your first time. 

Additionally, you’re free to have a female family member, friend, or nurse chaperone there as well. You never have to be alone with the doctor if that makes you feel uncomfortable.


What is a Gyno Exam and a Gyno Doctor?


There are several procedures included in the annual gynecology checkup. They’re all fairly quick, but each is important in its own way. There are four total parts, and each plays an important role in evaluating your overall health. These parts are as follows:

Pelvic Exam

One part of the process is the pelvic exam. To begin, you’ll be lying on an examination table. Once you’re as comfortable as possible and the doctor gets your consent, the exam can begin. If you opted for any third person to accompany you during the exam, they will be situated in a position that maintains your personal privacy. During this process, it’s best to relax as much as possible to prevent tensing your muscles and limit the discomfort as much as possible.

Your doctor will examine the vulva and the labia first to see if there are any signs of abnormalities. These can include various signs of irritation, swelling, redness, and sexually transmitted diseases. Once the external examination is finished, your doctor will use a medical instrument called a speculum to examine the interior of the vagina. Once in place, the device will be opened, allowing the doctor to examine the cervix.

Pap Smear

After the initial pelvic exam, your doctor will proceed with the pap smear while the speculum is in place. This procedure takes samples of your cervical cells to test them for cancer, precancerous abnormalities, and certain sexually transmitted diseases such as human papillomavirus. Once it’s complete, the cell sample will be sent to a lab for analysis. After that, you should get the results back within two weeks.

The importance of pap smears for women cannot be understated. Pap smears are important to catch any abnormalities early to prevent any major problems in the future. Cervical cancer is one of the most common forms of carcinoma in the United States. If it is not detected early, it can spread and impact your overall health leading to hysterectomy.

To conclude this test, your doctor will perform a quick bimanual exam to check your uterus and ovaries. The speculum is removed and the doctor will then insert a lubricated and gloved finger into your vagina and press down on your stomach with the other hand. 

Breast Exam

As part of your primary care, the next step is the breast exam, and this is easy. Your doctor will palpate your breasts to find any lumps, discharge, or abnormal thickening. You shouldn’t feel any pain from this exam, and your gynecologist can even show you how to give yourself a monthly personal breast exam.

Urine Sample

Typically, you’ll have to provide a urine sample during your visit. This is to check for various factors, including your kidney health and any potential infections. Additionally, a pregnancy test may be run.


How Do I Prepare for an NYC Gynecologist Exam?


Preparing for a gynecologist exam is fairly easy. There are just a few precautions you should keep in mind to ensure you get the most out of your exam. First and foremost, don’t schedule your exam during your period. Blood can interfere with the exam and compromise the results of certain tests. There are exceptions, however, if you experience irregular or heavy periods. Just make sure you call your doctor if you’re unsure if you qualify as an exception.

Additionally, it’s best to hold off on any major personal grooming before your exam. Certain hair removal techniques can cause inflammation which makes the exam more challenging. Make sure you don’t douche. Examining discharge is part of the process, and it’s essential for evaluating hormonal balance. Changing that before your appointment can throw off the accuracy of your results.

I was in need of a new GYNECOLOGIST. I found Great City Medical in a Google search. I spoke with a staff member after hours via live chat an was scheduled the earliest appointment very quickly. All my basic questions were answered. I was sent to patient portal link to pre-register and fill out the forms. Upon arrival I was greeted with a smile and checked in quickly, wait time was short before the nurse called me in to be triaged. I was placed in a room, which was very clean. Dr. Tsyba greeted me with a smile and was very polite and Thorough with the examination. She explained to me in detail what procedures were going to take place and what testing will be done. The staff was very Knowledgeable and helpful as a first-time patient I enjoyed my visit I highly recommend this practice.

The place is very nice, and people are kind and professional. The only downside is that I have waited more than I expected (even though I arrived way earlier than the scheduled time), but maybe it’s been just a coincidence. That being said, nothing else to complain about!

I waited about 30 min to see the Tech, then spent like 20 min with her as a new patient, then about 10 min. more to see Jaime, the NP who was available, since Dr. Tsyba was in surgery. Jaime then consulted with Dr. Tsyba. I was very satisfied with the gentle, compassionate and thorough care I received by Jaime, and the technician who performed the 2 ultrasounds I needed. I’m happy I found this OB/GYN doctor. I hope to meet Dr. Tysba soon.

I have known Dr.Tsyba for many years, she sees my friends and my sister gave birth to three children with her, personally in my practice there were moments when I had to urgently go to other doctors, after which I kept returning to her. She, as like a mother, will not advise bad things and will do everything possible to help. The staff is also very responsive and polite professionally fit every patient. You feel at home confidentially. Thank you doctor for your professionalism. I wish you more assistants so that you do not get tired.

My first time visiting this practice. They were very through, from intake, which was done by a Dr. that I assumed was a nurse because he was so young lol. I wound up seeing Jaime who is a GYN NP, she was awesome. They asked a lot of questions about my history, which I really appreciated. Labs and Sonogram are done on-site. I will be returning.
