Renaissance Women's Group – Austin OBGYN

Prenatal Appointment Schedule

The Team Approach

As much as possible, we will try to have your visits scheduled with your physician or their NP/PA.  Due to emergencies, deliveries or vacations however, you may need to see one of the other physicians or NPs/PAs in our practice.

Each of our physicians would like to deliver every single one of her patients, and do deliver the majority of their own patients.  However, our doctors cannot remain on-call continuously.   Their families would like to see them also!  So that you will feel comfortable and confident in the physician providing your care, we have carefully built our group with quality physicians who have the highest level of trust in each other.

Our nursing staff will contact you with any laboratory results that are abnormal and need attention.  Normal results will be discussed at your next visit.

If you have any concerns or questions at times other than your routine visits, you may talk with one of the nurses in our “phone bank.”  There is over 150 years of obstetrical experience among our nurses!
