We provide a full range of obstetrics services including normal and high-risk pregnancy, genetic testing and screening and full-time in-office 3D and 4D ultrasound.
Normal and High-Risk Pregnancy
Most of our patients are normal, healthy, happy and excited to be pregnant. Some are worried due to their history. Some are high risk due to their health or other factors. We can handle it all.
High Risk Pregnancy
As a group we have delivered over 300 sets of twins. We see pregnant patients of all ages, including over age 50. We see patients pregnant after IVF, after years of infertility, or after multiple miscarriages. We see pregnant patients who have had organ transplants, who are on multiple prescription medications, or have uterine anomalies or incompetent cervix. We can manage patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, lupus, thyroid disease and other medical disorders.
