Your cervix is the lowest part of your uterus, extending into your vagina. Cells in the cervix are constantly changing. If those changes become abnormal, dysplasia develops. This may turn into cancer if left untreated. With regular Pap tests, however, dysplasia can be caught and treated early.
The circular cervix separates your uterus from your vagina and provides a passage for menstrual blood, sperm, and childbirth. During pregnancy, its muscular structure helps hold the fetus securely inside your uterus.

Dr. Marsha Bornt started seeing me when I was in my early twenties (20 years ago). After seeing many doctors, she was the 1st doctor to diagnose me with endometriosis. I went on to have many laparoscopies with her over the years. In my thirties I moved about 45-50 min away from Apple Hill, so I ended up seeing another doctor who performed another laparoscopy...
Staff was very friendly and professional. I had a few questions that the doctor was more than happy to answer for me. I got all that needed to be done in a very timely manner. I was very pleased with my visit. Trying to find a parking spot was very frustrating though. Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment.
I am always glad to meet with Dr. Bornt. She is very pleasant and makes sure she has answered all your questions or concerns. She is very thorough in her approach about your medical history . . .wants only the best for you as her patient.
