Dr. Traynor and his Staff at Diablo Valley Perinatal are well above the rest in this specialty. From Dr. Traynor to his assistants to his office staff; all made us feel like we were the only ones that mattered. Their “bedside” manner is what every individual in the medical field should strive for. We never felt like we were being rushed out of the office. Quite to the contrary – they always ensured all of our questions were answered before we left and someone always got back to us promptly when a question came up at a later date. Everyone working there was compassionate, professional and willing to lend a hand to guide you through any situation. Dr. Traynor is truly a gem. His knowledge and ability to explain things to is reason enough to go to his office. They are an exceptional team and you get that feeling from the second you walk in.
