About Periods & Pauses

There have been many changes in healthcare over the past few years. One very positive change has been the advent of telehealth! We have come to see that many facets of healthcare can be provided through telehealth in a safe and professional manner. As a matter of fact, many women actually prefer telehealth because they do not have to leave their homes in order to have their medical concerns addressed. Healthcare can fit into your busy lifestyle more easily, without losing time from work or having to pay for childcare or transportation when done virtually.

Our Providers

Our providers each have several years’ experience in women’s health and are licensed Advanced Practice Registered Nurses. We have additional licensure issued by the State of Illinois called Full Practice Authority. This designation authorizes experienced advanced practice nurses to evaluate patients, diagnose, order and interpret diagnostic tests and initiate and manage treatments – including prescribing medications – under the exclusive licensure authority of the state board of nursing.

If we determine that your care is not appropriate for telehealth, or APRN care, we will do our best to recommend an appropriate APRN or physician who can care for you in an office setting.
