Who We Are
The USA Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology Division of Maternal- Fetal Medicine provides comprehensive care for pregnant women who are at high risk for adverse outcomes for themselves or the fetus, or have medical conditions that may cause complications. Our care team is based on an interdisciplinary concept, utilizing the full resources of the USA Health System.


Our Goal
Our goal is to rapidly diagnose problems, evaluate the best treatment options, and choose the best plan for both mother and infant, while maintaining close communication with the referring OB/GYN or family practice physician about progress.

FDC - Fetal Diagnostic Center
This clinic is designed for patients who have potential or suspected fetal anomalies. Pregnant women who are of advanced maternal age or have a screen test that puts them at an increased risk of anomalies or other risk factors. An ultrasound is performed and a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist will review the ultrasound images, discuss the findings, risk assessment and options with the patient/family. If a patient desires an amniocentesis, that will be discussed as well and can be performed the same day or scheduled on a later date. Primary care doctors must give patients a referral before an appointment can be scheduled.


MFM - Maternal-Fetal Medicine
This clinic helps private insurance patients who have pregnancy complications. A Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist will see these patients. These patients can be seen as part of a shared-care plan of care with their primary obstetrician or we can take primary care of a patient at the primary OB's request into our private faculty practice.


High Risk OB
This clinic is for MOM Care and Gift of Life patients. Refer diabetics, hypertensives, multiples, lupus, and other maternal medical conditions. Patients will be seen by multiple team members including nutritionist, social worker, registered nurse, OB residents, ultrasound tech, and Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist. An appointment in the clinic can easily last 2- 4 hours and patients should plan for this.
