What to Expect
We ask that you please arrive 20 minutes early for your first appointment. Please bring your insurance card and a photo ID. Once you complete new patient paperwork, you will be checked in by our nursing staff. This will include a review of your medical history. You will then have an ultrasound with one of our sonographers. After the ultrasound one of our providers will meet with you to review the results of your ultrasound and discuss any medical concerns associated with your pregnancy. Depending on the reason for your visit, you may see a genetic counselor or diabetic educator either before or after your ultrasound. You may also have a blood draw. We recommend that you allow 2-3 hours for this first appointment.
Because our practice deals with high risk pregnancies and the service you will be receiving requires close attention by our team, we do not allow children under the age of 16 for your appointment. One adult may accompany you to your appointment. After your appointment, you will be sent ultrasound pictures electronically by text or email. These pictures can be downloaded for 30 days for you to save forever.
Please be assured that we make every effort to honor your appointment time. The nature of our specialty sometimes causes unexpected delays. Since we do not always know what you will need before you arrive, we can only anticipate the time needed for each patient. Please know that we will spend as much time as needed with you. We will always do our best to keep you informed of delays. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
