As you can imagine, being a solo OB/GYN in a busy practice is quite challenging. I am on-call most of the time, but on some weekends, holidays, vacations, and 1-2 nights per week I sign out to another physician to cover my practice. I am fortunate that the doctors of the OB Hospitalist Group have agreed enthusiastically to cover my practice those days that I am “off.” These physicians are board-certified OB/GYNs, and are talented, energetic, compassionate, and experienced. I have had the opportunity over the past few years to work closely with them, and I have been extremely impressed with their level of expertise. I have, in fact, learned many practice pearls from them; we work very well together. Furthermore, these physicians are always present on the Labor and Delivery ward, thus making “labor checks” and after-hours problem evaluations seamless.
While it is highly probable that I will be present at your very special time, the birth of your child, it is possible that the OB Hospitalist Group may oversee your care when I am not available. During such periods of coverage, I know that you will receive expert, up-to-date care from extremely respected, honored, and experienced physicians. Of course, at all other times, you will be stuck with me!
You can schedule both routine and "problem" gynecologic appointments with me as well as with our experienced nurse-midwife, Rebecca McCracken, CNM. Rebecca brings to our team many years of experience in Women’s Healthcare, and she has special interests in menopause management, teen care, contraception, routine health maintenance, and obstetrical antepartum and postpartum care. Obstetrical patients will be scheduled to see both of us throughout your pregnancy.
We invite you to visit our website at www.visitmyobgyn.com for updates and announcements, as well as to learn about many issues relating to Obstetrics and Gynecology. In addition, at the bottom of the Home Page of our website, you may log on to our office portal to view your laboratory and radiology results.
