About Laura L Moylan, MD, PC
Dr. Moylan practiced obstetrics and gynecology in Charlottesville, Virginia for one year before relocating to the Roanoke Valley in 1991.  She established a solo private medical practice specializing in gynecology in 1997.  She is dedicated to providing up to date medical evaluations, advice, and services including office procedures.  Medical testing should focus on whether the outcome will influence your diagnosis or treatment options in order to be cost effective.  Her practice philosophy centers on patient autonomy.  There are often several different acceptable options for managing a medical condition.  Dr. Moylan believes her job is to educate you about these and to help you choose the best option for your particular situation.  No two women are exactly alike!  We try to provide that personal touch.

Sexually transmitted disease (STD) symptoms include abnormal uterine bleeding and/or discharge, pelvic pain, painful sex or urination, bumps or sores on the genital skin, abnormal pap smears, & itching. Some diseases are silent, but can be detected by proper testing.  Risk factors include unprotected skin to skin contact with an infected person.  The CDC recommends testing before initiating an intimate relationship, for the best protection.  Don't be stressed by worry, take action to assure that you are in control of your health.
​The menopause transition can last several years, and for some, cause uncomfortable, disruptive symptoms such as hot flashes, trouble sleeping, mood changes, abnormal bleeding, painful sex, frequent urinary tract infections (UTIs), weight gain, & difficulty concentrating. As if this wasn't enough, many women find themselves managing the demands of teenagers as well as caregiving for elderly family members just as these changes set in.  Many treatments exist, from bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to non-hormonal prescriptions.  You do not need to suffer in silence. 
Your needs may change as you progress through the change, and we can adjust your medications to keep you on your game.
