How to pick an OB-GYN

Posted by Signature Medical Group on Monday, October 24, 2016 in Obstetrics/Gynecology

For women, finding the right OB-GYN is important, and Signature Medical Group is here to help.

OB is short for obstetrics or for an obstetrician, a physician who delivers babies. GYN is short for gynecology or for a gynecologist, a physician who specializes in treating diseases of the female reproductive organs.

Signature Medical Group offers comprehensive, specialized obstetrical, gynecological, and specialized fertility care with the highest regard to your needs as a woman. When you’re looking for an OB-GYN, make sure to consider these 3 factors:

  1. Compatibility – Are you comfortable asking questions and speaking about difficult subjects with your doctor?
  2. Board Certification and Training – Does your doctor have the best training and experience to treat you and guide you through a potential pregnancy?
  3. Choosing Where and Whom Delivers – What hospital is your doctor working at? Does is matter to you which hospital you must deliver at? Does it matter 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?

Keeping these factors and others in mind is important as you make this decision.
