It’s no secret that when it comes to healthcare decisions, it’s usually mom who speaks for the family. But far too often moms spend so much time and energy on their family’s health needs that their own health takes second place.

Dr. Mary Satti and her Old Lyme-based practice have worked for nearly 20 years to ensure that women’s specialized primary care needs are met. Because primary care is such a vast eld, and the health needs of men and women are so different, Satti says a sub-specialty like women’s primary care is essential.

In addition to the traditional care provided in a primary care setting, women’s primary care also addresses issues like contraception, breast health, osteoporosis, tness, nutrition and stress management.

“Oftentimes women get sandwiched between the needs of elderly parents and managing the healthcare of their children,” Satti says. “We give women of all ages a safe environment to talk about health concerns that are speci c to them along with advice on how to stay healthy and how to manage their stress.”
