First, a group practice has the benefit of greater shared clinical experience and access to information. This enables better care for the patient. In addition, group practitioners have greater access to more patients than do solo providers. By having a practice with multiple physicians, staff members, and even multiple locations, this broadens the scope of the practice and enables a group to provide care to more patients and connect with more referrals.
Many of our patients also agree that a group practice is the way to go. With fourteen incredibly skilled medical specialists at our practice, you can be sure you are in good hands.
“Going into Maternal-Fetal Medicine for the first time as a patient, I was very well aware that it was a group practice and, actually, that’s one of the reasons I chose Maternal Fetal Medicine and Carnegie to go to,” said Kate S., a patient since 2015. “Because I felt more comfortable being with a group and knowing that I had a few different physicians to be able to meet and get to build relationships with. You never know when you’re going to go into labor and you don’t know if your doctor is going to be on-call. And I’ve just known, so many friends and family who went to other practices where it was a solo-practitioner, and then their doctor wasn’t the one who was at the hospital to deliver their baby. Going into this group practice, I knew that, no matter what, one of those doctors would be at the hospital to deliver my baby. That’s part of the reason why I chose Maternal-Fetal Medicine as my group.”
