and it only takes a couple of seconds. >> and you say usually it's covered, correct? >> it's 100% covered. with the new affordable care act, preventive services for women are 100% covered. so there's no reason women should not see their obgyn. >> and in the survey, almost half didn't see their obgyn in the past year. what are some of the reasons? do you think cost is a factor? >> i think they don't know that it should not be a factor. also, too, women go to their obgyns when there is a problem. whether it's discharge, an odor, or something feels uncomfortable, or they're pregnant. when i say when was the last time you saw an obgyn, probably when i last delivered. >> only a quarter of hispanic women are confident they could identify the symptoms of advanced cervical cancer. whap are some of those symptoms?

so cervical cancer is a slow-growing cancer. it could take about ten years for these cells to become cancer. by the time there is a cancer or tumor present, women bleed. they may have some discharge. they may have pain with intercourse or bleeding after intercourse. these are all the things that -- >> and only one in ten women report that their doctor brought up cervical cancer at their last appointment. so is it incumbent on the patient to ask? >> i always say that the patient should be the biggest advocate. you have to go in with a piece of paper at every single doctor's visit. because the time the doctor has with you is very limited. so usually when a patient comes in with that piece of paper, i do sit down and make sure all the patient's questions are answered. and i always ask at the end of every visit, were all your questions answered? >> the patients should do that. make a list of questions to ask and make sure they have it in their visit which should be

>> exactly. it's very important. you have to have your rabies shot. it's very easy. >> what information are they looking for and what do you have to do? >> go online. you can fill out the application online. you can have them mail one to you. you can print one out there. you just fill it out, you have proof of -- that they have their rabies shots which is not hard. because it's just on the little rabies tag. and that's it. you're done. >> and also name tag is not a license. but what sort of key information should you have on your animal? >> i would say just the phone number. i mean, you could have the pet's name, but i would not put your address on there. >> oh, just the phone number. >> just the phone number. >> our dogs, we put the whole address. these days it's probably a good thing not to. and the traditional way, the tag and the licensing. but also the microchipping is important these days too.
