Due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases, patients will NOT be allowed to be accompanied by a visitor/support person at their appointment.
Only Exception: If you are scheduled for a gender ultrasound, anatomy ultrasound (20 weeks), or a 4D ultrasound, ONE support person may accompany the patient to be present for the ultrasound. Patients may use FaceTime during OB appointments and ultrasounds but may NOT video record ultrasounds nor visits. Underage patients (under 18), patients needing a translator, or disabled patients may have a support person if needed.
If you are symptomatic, pending COVID-19 test results or live in the same household with a COVID-19 positive person, please call us to reschedule your appointment.
