At my appointment with the MPCN women’s clinic, the nurse and doctor discussed with me the benefits and risks of different types of birth control and helped me decide which one was best for me. I really appreciated the time they took to answer all the questions I had. Now I see them for all my PAP tests too!” — MPCN patient “I was having hot flashes and some abnormal bleeding, as a result of menopause. It was very difficult to sleep at night and I was exhausted. When I saw the doctor at the Mosaic Medical Clinic, they did some tests and recommended a medication to help with the hot flashes. After using the medication, I was finally able to sleep again. It was such a relief to talk to someone who understood my symptoms and knew what to do right away.” — MPCN patient
