Why do you need family planning healthcare services?

We know that planning is so important for your continued health and well-being. About half of the pregnancies in the US are unintended. Family planning means that you will be better prepared and ready for your baby when the time comes for you to welcome a new member into your family.

After you’ve had a baby, you’ll also need information about contraception options that will keep you safe and healthy. Ideally, your pregnancies should be spaced at least 18 months apart. Your body needs time to heal. You may actually need to space pregnancies further apart, depending on your family and medical situation.

Obstetrical (Pregnancy) Ultrasound / Sonogram

The service from the nurses is great, but I've rarely spoken to the doctor since my care has started (total of 2-3 actually checks from Dr. Karsan). I'm not sure if this is normal, but it would be preferred if the the doctor could actually serve the patient. A 30 second check in would suffice.

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

Got me in very fast. Did lab work very fast. Saw Dr McBrayer. In and out less 30 minutes. Very appreciative! Thank you Dr McBrayer and nurse
