The physicians at Diablo Valley Perinatal treated my twin pregnancy with incredible warmth and dedication. I know they provided my and my wife with the best care possible from our first visit to the delivery of our beautiful boys. The doctors always made time to thoroughly answer all of my many questions and we never felt rushed. While their personalities are different, each doctor had a peaceful way of making my pregnancy and delivery as calm and stress-free as possible. My wife and I will be forever grateful for the wonderful care they provided that resulted in the arrival of our healthy twin boys. Words cannot express how thankful we are. – T.M.
Dr. Traynor and his staff are way above the rest in this specialty. I know – I have been elsewhere in the bay area. The front office staff, ultrasound techs, genetic counselors and doctors – they all made us feel like we were the only ones that mattered. Their “bedside manner” is what every doctor should strive for. Everyone working there was knowledgeable, understanding, compassionate, professional and willing to help me whenever I had a question or problem. This is an exceptional place – and you get that feeling from the second you walk in. S.D.
In my first pregnancy, I experienced a second trimester loss attributed to cervical incompetence. Thanks to Dr. Won, she recognized the problem, placed a cervical cerclage and monitored me closely throughout my pregnancy. After the horror of my first pregnancy, I was really scared heading into my second. Dr. Won was always there to put my mind (and emotions) at ease. Her personality made me feel like one -in-a-million despite seeing her waiting room full every time I had an appointment. The staff at Diablo Valley was professional and clearly competent. I would highly recommend Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates to colleagues, friends and family members. -M.T.
Our pregnancy was complicated by a chromosome problem and Dr. Kellert was amazing from our first appointment. Across many ultrasounds and long conversations in person and on the phone, he listened to our goals, provided us with options, and helped us through our pregnancy. What an amazing individual. -B.L.
A Perinatologist's Perspective:
The nuchal translucency (NT) exam at 11-14 weeks and the detailed is an absolutely critical exam. It not only provides early information about the health of the pregnancy, but also accurately dates the pregnancy - and while many people are sure of their due date before the NT exam, statistics show that about 60% of women do not get their conception date correct (and thus their due date). It may not seem like an important matter at 12 weeks, but having a due date off by 5-7 days 28 weeks into the future could be critical to the timing of your delivery and health of your baby.
