PacMed Family Medicine with Obstetrics – Beacon Hill
Family Medicine, also known as Family Practice, is the medical specialty that provides comprehensive care for the individual and family, covering the spectrum from birth to aging issues. When you are choosing your family doctor, you might want to consider whether childbirth is in your future, and if so, who will assist you through your pregnancy and beyond.
Combining family medicine and obstetrics in one practice is more than a matter of convenience – though being able to see your family doctor for all of your medical needs certainly streamlines care and saves time. When your family medicine physician is also your obstetrician, he or she can begin caring for the newest member of your family before your child is even born by keeping you at your healthiest and ensuring that you receive optimal prenatal care.
At Pacific Medical Centers, we currently have six family medicine physicians who offer obstetric services, caring for mothers and their babies throughout pregnancy, delivery, and into well-child checkups. Our Beacon Hill clinic has all of the services you’ll need throughout pregnancy, including on-site ultrasound, non-stress testing, and laboratory services. Our physicians attend our patients’ deliveries at nearby Swedish Medical Center’s state-of-the art birthing center, which offers a level III nursery on First Hill in Seattle.
From confirming your pregnancy to overseeing your family’s ongoing primary care, our board-certified family medicine and obstetric practitioners are ready to nurture a relationship with your family across generations.
