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

Your primary obstetrician decides if your pregnancy is high risk and refers 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. Though you may have serval 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 prenantal testing, diagnostic services and first trimester ultrasound screenings.

Our Providers

We are proud to be a team of experienced English, Spanish and French speaking perinatologists who have devoted our careers to high risk pregnancy care. Our team has helped many families realize their dreams of having a successful pregnancy.
