Changes to Obstetrical Sonograms

Due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in our area effective Thursday, July 9, 2020, ObGyn Women’s Centre will no longer allow a support person during the obstetrical sonograms. We apologize for the inconvenience but we will allow FaceTime, Video call, or Skype if you have that service on your smartphone. If you have a scheduled appointment for your postpartum exam, please do not bring your infant with you to your appointment, this is for the protection of the baby.

Appointment Times

We ask that all patients arrive at your scheduled appointment time. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your scheduled appointment you will be rescheduled.  If you arrive more than 15 minutes early you will not be allowed into the waiting area.  We encourage patients, new or established, to bring paperwork with you to your appointment already filled out. You can request the forms to be emailed to you, mailed to you or you can print from our website www.obgynwc.com.


Please know that we are trying to continue the social distancing guidelines and to keep our patients and employees safe and healthy during these difficult times. If you have questions or concerns please call the office at 941-907-3008 between the hours of 9 am-1 pm (closed for lunch at 1pm-2:15 pm) and 2:15 pm-4:30 Pm. You may also utilize the Patient Portal for all questions and concerns which is available anytime. If you are reaching out after business hours, we will respond the next business day.
