What is 3W’s Mission?
3W’s mission is to respectfully provide compassionate evidence-based sexual health services and education necessary to make informed healthcare decisions.
We Believe that:
- You are strong and capable of making your own decisions.
- You should be equipped to make informed decisions about your own health.
- You deserve to be educated on every option available, and no woman should be pressured into anything with which she feels uncomfortable.
- You, regardless of your socioeconomic status, deserve healthcare that does not profit from your medical decisions.
Does 3W charge for services?
3W does not charge for services since we do not believe in profiting from your reproductive or health care decisions. We do accept and ask for a nominal donation starting at $10 for certain types of visits. Laboratory testing that is sent to outside laboratories and mammograms that are performed by imaging facilities will be billed by those facilities.
3W address specifically your desire for complete and medically accurate information so that you are empowered to make informed decisions. We do not provide hospital services, surgical procedures or prescribe contraception or abortions.
What can you expect when you arrive at 3W?
3W welcomes all patients to experience our high standard of care. When you arrive, you will be greeted by our hospitality representative. You will then be asked to fill out some standard forms so we can better understand your needs. From there, you will privately meet with one of our Nurse Directors in our consult room.
