For many women, finding the right OB-GYN is an important step in their health care journey; Signature Medical Group is here to help you choose the right physician who is best suited to your needs.
First of all, what exactly is an OB/GYN? An obstetrician is a physician who delivers babies. A gynecologist is a physician who specializes in treating diseases of the female reproductive organs. Many physicians practice in both specialties.
Our women's health doctors offer comprehensive, specialized obstetrical, gynecological, and fertility care with the highest regard to every patients individual needs. When looking for an OB-GYN, consider these factors:
- Compatibility. Are you comfortable asking questions and speaking about difficult subjects with your doctor?
- Board certification and training. Does your doctor have the best training and experience to treat you and guide you through a potential pregnancy?
- Choosing where to deliver. At what hospital does your doctor work? Does the particular hospital matter to you? Is it important to you that your doctor is the one who delivers your baby? Or, if it’s another doctor in the office, is that okay with you?
