Maternal Transports

What if my uncomplicated pregnancy becomes complicated?

The physicians of Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates routinely accept and care for maternal transports from surrounding community hospitals that require perinatal care.  Either Dr. Traynor or Dr. Won is on call 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for such transports.  At other tertiary referral centers in our area, fellows, residents or hospitalists care for the most complicated patients.  To Dr. Traynor and Dr. Won – this makes NO SENSE.  If you are transported to our care – that is exactly what you will receive – care by us.  We do not use hospitalists to cover our call nor do they deliver our patients.  You will be cared for and delivered by a perinatologist – the way it should be.

How do I know I will be transported to the care of Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates?

Just ask.  In all likelihood – if your obstetrician referred you for your fetal ultrasounds at Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates – your obstetrician will transport you to our care at John Muir Medical Center.

 

Dr. Won attentively managed my second pregnancy. I previously had a second trimester loss attributed to cervical incompetence and then carried another pregnancy to term with the use of cervical cerclage and extended bed rest. Due to my high risk obstetric history, I was unsure how difficult or feasible another pregnancy would be. My husband and I were put at ease during what may have otherwise been a stressful time. Dr. Won’s personalized care made me feel like one-in-a-million rather than one of many. The staff at Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates was fabulous; friendly and professional. From check-in to follow-up, our experience was exceptional. I would highly recommend Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates to colleagues, friends and family members.
