Pregnancy, Birth And Beyond
We combine modern medical techniques with a personal touch to ensure the safe delivery of healthy babies.
During pregnancy, the health of the mother and baby are monitored at regular intervals. The physicians place a strong emphasis on prevention and early detection of complications. We work closely with the excellent personnel at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare to offer diet counseling, neonatology and delivery facilities.
Childbirth classes, taught by the certified Lamaze instructors of Childbirth Educators of Tallahassee, are offered at our office.
After birth, immediate follow-up care begins for you and your baby. A special focus is placed on the psychological and emotional well being of the mother.

We will file your insurance for the prevailing amount AT TIME OF THE DELIVERY (unless other arrangements are made). Circumcision is usually not a covered expense. It is usually applied to the baby's deductible, unless you are covered by an HMO.
