Frisco Women’s Health and Team Philosophy
So why would you want to select the Frisco Women’s Health family to take care of you for nine months and hopefully for years to come?
Frisco Women’s Health is a unique practice. Established as a solo practice at Baylor Medical Center Frisco in 2009, Frisco Women’s Health has grown exponentially over the years and is now a collaborative group practice of physicians and nurse practitioners with a common approach to practicing OB/GYN. Our modern offices on the campus of Medical City Frisco, right off the Dallas North Tollway and Main Street offers convenient access to a full range of Women’s and Children’s services. We believe in building a strong physician-patient relationship by providing continuity of care, from your first visit through your baby’s delivery. This is a family-friendly and customer service-driven practice.
Proven Low Cesarean Rate
Our physicians are here to educate you about your choices so you can make informed decisions. We are strong proponents of vaginal deliveries and are very patient during labor, giving you the maximum opportunity to reach that goal. We respect a women’s right to choose to have an elective Cesarean Section and like any procedure, we explain all the risks and benefits. Our Cesarean Section rate is well below the national average, making us a minority in a community where many physicians having a greater than 50% Cesarean Section rate and near 100% induction of labor rate. We do not induce our patients for our convenience, as induction significantly increases your risk of Cesarean. However, if you desire to be induced, we will explain the risks and benefits so you can make an informed decision.
Patient Transfer Information
We accept OB patients at any time during the pregnancy; we have had patients transfer care to our office as late as one week before they are due. These patients are generally unhappy with their current doctor’s sudden desire to induce them, their inability to perform an External Cephalic Version at 36 weeks or their sudden change in your delivery plan; for example, they no longer feel you are a good candidate for a Vaginal Birth after Cesarean Section or they suddenly think you should be induced despite the fact they can provide no medical reason. We have had patients who were scheduled for a Cesarean Section on Tuesday by another doctor, then deliver vaginally with us on the following Friday. If you are over 20 weeks pregnant with no prenatal care, we will gladly see you if you have had an ultrasound; otherwise, your situation will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
If you are interested in becoming a part of the Frisco Women’s Health family, just give us a call. We will be happy to answer any additional questions you may have and schedule an appointment. Congratulations on your pregnancy and we look forward to meeting you!
