Congratulations! We are pleased that you have chosen us to provide your obstetrical care. Our mission is to provide comprehensive, compassionate and high quality care to all of our patients. We strive to support you in the style of birth that you desire.
Drs. Nisha David, Paul DeMeo, and Elizabeth Murray share coverage of the practice with two Hospital Laborists Drs. Phillip McCrary and Bernard Nagel 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. Nurse practitioners Nancy Graham and Valerie Walbek provide obstetrical and gynecological care in the office but do not attend deliveries. Our Triage nurses provide support and answer questions over the phone as well as in our office. Our dedicated administrative staff takes phone messages that will be returned by a nurse or a provider in a timely manner.
How to reach us:
For non-urgent questions and prescription refills, please call our office between 9 AM and 4:30 PM weekdays. For an urgent concern, please call the same line at anytime. If the office is closed, an answering service will take your message and contact the on-call physician. Your urgent call will be returned within 30 minutes in most cases. If you have a block on your phone for unlisted numbers, please remove it until you hear back from the physician. In the unlikely event that the office phones are out of service, you can reach one of our physicians by calling the Falmouth Hospital Maternity Unit.
Overview of prenatal care:
Your first prenatal visit will be scheduled with one of our nurse practitioners between 10-12 weeks of your pregnancy. This appointment will take approximately one hour and will include a review of your medical history and any concerns that you may have regarding your pregnancy. A physical examination will be performed during this visit. Cultures may be collected and Routine prenatal labs will be drawn. In most cases, we will hear the fetal heart beat during this visit. You will be provided with a general description of our practice, prenatal care and what to expect during the first trimester of your pregnancy.
Generally, an ultrasound will not be needed until 18-20 weeks of pregnancy when the anatomy survey is performed.
The physicians in our office rotate call, so any one of them may be present when you deliver. Therefore, we encourage you to meet all of the providers during the course of your pregnancy.
Please call us to schedule an appointment!
