Well woman exams are yearly visits for discussion of overall health and planning including screening family history of diseases including diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer. Many women have question regarding mammograms, colonoscopy, and osteoporosis prevention that are frequently answered at these visits.

Pregnancy care is essential to many women’s life cycle and we hope to provide a comprehensive and patient centered approach to birth. Your birth plan is welcome and will be respected.
Menopause is a transition that many women face with uncertainty and fear so we strive to educate patients for the changes they may face and find patient centered approaches to making the transition easier.
Sexuality and sensuality are frequently discussed in practice and at Southern Women’s Care we take a patient centered approach to addressing these concerns. Dr. Bowersock is a prescriber or ADDYI or filbanserin for hypoactive sexual desire disorder. Hormone therapy is a frequent approach to women’s health and restoration of intimacy. In addition, we offer Mona Lisa Touch laser services for restoration of vaginal health after menopause to help with the uncomfortable side effects of lack of estrogen.
Overall, we take pride in addressing your health on your terms. We understand the intimate nature of practicing obstetrics and gynecology and hope to make your experience memorable and perhaps enjoyable. We may even make you laugh.
Alisa R Bowersock, DO, MPH
Dr. B grew up in Dunmor, KY and graduated from Muhlenberg South High School in 1997. She attended Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN from 1997-2001 where she graduated cum laude with a B.S. in Biology. From Nashville she moved to Lexington, KY to attend the newly established School of Public Health where she earned her MPH in 2003. From Lexington she headed down the Mountain Parkway to Pikeville, Kentucky where she would receive her Doctorate in Osteopathy in 2007 under her mentor and dean Dr. John Strosnider. “Stro” encouraged her class to be the best doctors they could be even if they could only do it for one day. He whispered from his wheelchair at graduation in May before his death from pancreatic cancer that summer, “I told you, I told you that you could do this.”
The road from Pikeville lead to a town near Detroit, Michigan called Mount Clemens for both internship and residency. The group of doctors that started Mount Clemens Regional Medical Center in 2007 would be “the last interns.” They grew in knowledge and friendship and endured many hardships but were not allowed a cry day. They came to work as snow plows some days and worked like there were no work hour restrictions. That group made the cold of Michigan quite warm.
But the gray skies in Michigan drove Dr. B back to the beloved south. Lebanon TN has become home and the people of Wilson, Smith, Sumner, Macon, Trousdale, Dekalb, Davidson, and Rutherford counties have become family.
