Striving For Wellness
Dr. Ravasia founded Women's Health Connection with a philosophy that health is more than the absence of disease.
Achieving and maintaining health and wellness is a two fold process - the first is to analyze symptoms and identify and treat disease, if present, or rule it out. Too often, this is where the process stops in medicine. Once, we've determined what a symptom ISN'T, (i.e., ruled out serious disease), Dr. Ravasia feels that the next step is to figure out what it IS and how to modify it to help you feel well. How we feel as women, and our sense of wellness, goes far beyond the absence of disease.
Empowering your Decision Making
Women's Health Connection is a safe place to let us know what is on your mind. We are listening. Open and honest information exchange is what it's all about. The provider's role is to inform and guide, but it is always your choice what to incorporate into your life and your role to make it happen. We respect your decisions and encourage and support your efforts to achieve wellness and balance in your life.
Women's Health Connection follows an integrated approach between traditional medicine with its tests, medications, labs, imaging, procedures and surgeries, as well as functional and lifestyle medicine, often the first line of treatment for many conditions, including food planning, stress management, fitness planning, and great nutrition. The result: A holistic approach tapping into mind, body and spiritual resources.
Calm and Peaceful Environment
Many women rank going to the gynecologist as one of the more stressful visits that they have - right up there with going to the dentist. In founding Women's Health Connection, Dr. Ravasia strived to get past this stereotypical image and create a calm, peaceful and serene environment for you to visit. The colors, music, style, and demeanor of the Women's Health Connection have been carefully chosen to help you feel at ease. You are in a safe place here.
