Meet Our Providers
Like many OBGYN practices, Southside OBGYN is a group practice. Our providers have days they work in the office, days they are on-call for deliveries at the hospital and days they are off. Your primary provider may not be on-call on the day you are in labor and delivery. During your pregnancy we will have you schedule your regular prenatal visits with your provider, but depending on their schedule, any provider may deliver your baby.
