ABOUT FPC

Florida Perinatal Center, LLC. (FPC) offers the latest in prenatal testing, genetic counseling and management of both normal and high-risk pregnancies. Our perinatologists – doctors who specialize in high-risk pregnancies – are recognized for their expertise in managing the complications of pregnancy.

There are 2 reasons for being referred to our practice:

  • Your obstetrician may decide that your pregnancy is high risk and refer you to FPC. During your visit, you will receive an in-depth consultation with one of our perinatologists to discuss your pregnancy needs and concerns.
  • Your obstetrician may refer you to FPC to evaluate the health of the fetus for a routine first trimester ultrasound and/or anatomy scan. Our office does provide routine ultrasound and testing for low-risk patients.

Though you may have several appointments with your maternal-fetal medicine specialist during your pregnancy, your own obstetrician will continue to manage the pregnancy and deliver the baby. The maternal-fetal medicine specialist is usually not present at delivery but is available for consultation as needed.

Each member of our team is committed to providing the highest quality, most comprehensive medical care possible, and in doing so, treating you and your family members with professionalism and compassion at all times. We are also committed to developing open, trusting relationships with our patients. We place an emphasis on keeping patients informed of our services and treatment options. Our services include prenatal testing, diagnostic services, and first-trimester ultrasound screenings.

We are a member of the TopLine MD Alliance, a collective group of practices, providers and specialty centers that help patients navigate a complicated healthcare system.

Membership in the alliance is peer approved, highly selective, and based on exceptional patient satisfaction. Our priority is to provide you with top-of-the-line care, through a network of dedicated people you can trust, while making your experience simple and convenient.
