Obstetrics

Our Philosophy

At Gwinnett OBGYN Associates we value every patient and strive to take care of our patients during their pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum to the best of our ability.  Here you will find a team of highly qualified board-certified physicians and nurse practitioners as well as a large number of staff whose goal is to make every patient feel as comfortable as possible with her care.  Our team of providers include 5 physicians and 2 nurse practitioners.

 

When To Call For First Appointment

We like for our patients to call us as soon as they find they are pregnant to schedule the first prenatal visit.   The prenatal care visits normally start at around 7 weeks gestation (about 3 weeks after a missed period).  To help with the flow of your first appointment, please download and complete the new patient OB forms and bring to your first appointment along with your insurance card and a photo ID.  Please arrive 30 minutes before your first appointment.

 

Initial OB Visit

At the initial visit, which is usually accompanied by a “confirmation of pregnancy” ultrasound, one of our nurse practitioners will review your history, discuss a host of information including what to expect during your pregnancy and give you written information to take home.  Blood tests are done next.  The visit usually ends with meeting with our financial advisor to discuss any financial concerns or questions you might have.  The next appointment with be scheduled with one of the doctors for an exam and review of all material and results.   From then on, routine prenatal care visits start.

 

Collaborative Care

We are proud to care for women of all backgrounds, with normal low risk pregnancies as well as those with high-risk pregnancies.  If need be, close collaboration with a team of Maternal Fetal Specialists as well as all other specialists will be incorporated into the plan of your prenatal care.

We believe that by having all of our physicians work together, we provide better prenatal care for all of our pregnant patients.  During the course of your pregnancy, you will have the opportunity to meet each of the practice’s obstetricians and nurse practitioners.  We are confident that you will love each and every one of them.

 

When In Labor

When labor occurs, the obstetrician assigned to the hospital on that date will attend to you during your labor and delivery.  We do all of our deliveries at Eastside Medical Center, the hospital located next to our building in Snellville, Ga. If you feel like you are in labor, please call the office number, day or night, to notify the on call doctor prior to arriving to the hospital.

At our office, a variety of services are available to our obstetrics patients including the following:

  • In house ultrasounds done by our well-trained sonographers.
  • first trimester dating ultrasound
  • second trimester anatomy ultrasound (and yes, gender determination if the baby cooperates!)
  • more ultrasounds as indicated
  • vaccinations
  • genetic testing, if desired
  • fetal testing including non-stress test and biophysical profile.
  • 3 D entertainment ultrasounds
  • nutrition consultation as needed
  • OB services available to our patients

We hope to provide a unique and positive experience for our patients during this most special time of their life, and to continue caring for them in all future ob/gyn needs.
