Important things to know if you are pregnant:
- Your appointments will be scheduled so that you have an opportunity to meet each of our physicians.
- If your pregnancy progresses normally, your visits will be every 3-4 weeks until the seventh month, then every 2 weeks until your last month. During the last month, your visits will be every week.
- We will need to obtain important information about your health history.
- We will provide an approximate due date. This doesn’t mean you will deliver exactly on this date.
- Our staff will meet with you to review your maternity payment plan. They will determine an estimate of how much your insurance will cover and make arrangements for the balance to be paid. This should be paid by the end of the sixth month of pregnancy.
Please arrive 15-20 minutes before your appointment to fill out your medical history and registration forms. You may also be provided a health assessment or questionnaire to complete in advance of your visit. To cancel an appointment, please notify us 24 hours in advance so we can make the appointment available to another patient.

If you are a patient currently using MyChart, you may be able to request a refill through the app or online portal. For prescriptions not available in MyChart, please make an appointment so a physician can evaluate if the medications need to be changed. It could take up to 24-48 business hours for a refill to be submitted.
Our practices use an electronic health record system that allows for a seamless patient experience through improved communications, timeliness, patient information storage and portability. This system, called MyChart, will allow you to view medications, allergies, health issues and recent visits.
