3 doctors agree
In brief: Annual Exam
When you call you can let them know that this is your first ob/gyn visit and you would like to have an annual exam (a once a year gynecological exam that includes a general review of your past medical history, a physical and a pelvic exam including a pap smear test).
From there, the receptionist may ask for registration information (age, health insurance, etc).
