No matter how many times the gynecologist has heard the same problem or the same symptoms, she needs to remember that to the individual it is a major concern, and needs to listen in a sympathetic and compassionate manner."
A Gynecologist is the medical practice dealing with the health of the female reproductive systems like vagina, uterus, and ovaries and the breasts. Outside medicine, the term means "the science of women". Almost all modern gynecologists are also obstetricians. A gynecologist treats the overall health of their female patients, treating problems and diseases of the female reproductive system such as breast and hormonal problems, urinary tract and pelvic disorders, and cancer of the cervix. Most often than not, a gynecologist is an obstetrician as well. While a general physician may be able to pinpoint and treat minor women's health issues, the expert opinions of gynecologists are absolutely necessary when it comes to certain aspects of women's health.
A gynecologist performs a variety of tests and exams focused on women's health. Gynecologists are responsible for performing the standard yearly exam on adult women to ensure their reproductive health. During this exam, the doctor will physically examine the woman, perform a pap smear, perform STD tests, complete a breast exam, and monitor the woman's use of birth control.

A gynecologist is devoted only to the reproductive care of women while an obstetrician is concerned with women during and a little after pregnancy. Obstetricians are also concerned with the health of the fetus. Almost all modern Gynecologists are also Obstetricians.
