Maternal-Fetal Medicine, also known as High-Risk Obstetrics, provides complete consultation and evaluation of high-risk pregnancies for women and newborns that have complications identified prior to or during pregnancy.

Some of the conditions that we see and evaluate include:
- Pre-conception Evaluation

- Evaluation and management of medical diseases during pregnancy:
- Cardiac, pulmonary, renal
- Collagen-vascular disease
- Hematologic and coagulation abnormalities

Our clinic is staffed with registered nurses, who are specially trained in obstetrics and gynecology and registered diagnostic medical sonographers (RDMS), certified by The American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography, who are specially trained in prenatal ultrasound to offer the highest quality prenatal diagnosis.
Our lab offers the following screenings and examinations utilizing state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment:
