Vulvar Clinic

The MAHEC Vulvar Clinic first opened in 2006 with hopes to serve local residents and providers in treating difficult vulvovaginal skin problems and pain disorders.

Dr. Kiran Sigmon, MD, and Ann Brown, CNM, work closely with local providers to see and treat a variety of conditions including:
 
  • lichen planus
  • lichen sclerosus
  • lichen simplex chronicus (eczema)
  • chronic vaginal infections
  • vulvovaginal pain
  • precancerous vulvar conditions
 
 

Once patients are stable with their condition well controlled, the patient's care is returned to their usual provider for ongoing management.

 

To make an appointment, call  
828-771-5500  
and ask to schedule a  
new patient appointment  
at the MAHEC Vulvar Clinic.  

What to bring to your appointment: 

  • Records, including office notes, biopsy and/or culture reports
  • All medications you are using now for your condition
  • Your completed health questionnaire

 

What to expect at your appointment: 

Dr. Sigmon and Ann Brown often have other physicians working and learning within their clinics. You may meet a provider that is a resident physician or medical student who will be part of your care team. 

You will have approximately one hour as a new patient for your team to review your records, take a comprehensive history, perform a physical exam, and review a care plan. It may be necessary to return for a second visit if a biopsy is needed.
