Exceptional obstetrics care
We welcome you to our practice and hope you have a truly amazing experience with us. We are a private practice with two physicians, two midwives, and three nurse practitioners whose sole purpose is to guide you successfully through your pregnancy and try to create the best experience we can for you and for your newborn. We are a group of obstetric providers who are completely engaged in your care. We love what we do and the services we provide.
When you come to our office for prenatal care, we usually begin with an ultrasound at 7-8 weeks. The purpose of the ultrasound is to make sure that the pregnancy is off to a good start – that the baby (or babies) is (are) alive and well. Additionally, we would like to give you the very first picture of your child’s scrapbook. Following this visit, we will set up a schedule for future visits. The Handbook should take you through the entire pregnancy and answer the vast majority of your questions.
Fortunately, we consider the vast majority of pregnancies to be low risk. We will look at your current situation to assess whether you have a low or high-risk pregnancy, and whether or not your care should be co-managed or completely managed by a perinatologist. If deemed appropriate, we will schedule your visits so you have the opportunity to meet and feel comfortable with all of the providers who may attend your delivery. All of us have a great deal of experience. Some patients may have a particular person they want to see for their delivery and we attempt to make this happen when practically feasible. Although we cannot guarantee this, we can say that our providers deliver more than 98% of our own patients, even though we are in an extended call group. You will no doubt benefit from scheduling appointments with each of us and you will find that different perspectives will add to your experience in our practice.
We deliver babies exclusively at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek because of its unbeatable quality.
In addition to compassionate and skilled nursing care, We have an anesthesiologist, pediatrician, and obstetrician located within the hospital 24 hours a day. Additionally, the level 3 neonatal nursery is top-notch, and can handle any unexpected problem a newborn may experience. As stated plainly, there is no safer hospital in the area.
