We are happy that we are able to serve as the only prenatal care providers Fairfield County. Our providers will start with giving you a urine pregnancy test. Throughout your pregnancy and delivery you will be taken care of by our “Prenatal Care Team” which includes Dr. McElmurray and Dr. Shaffer and teaching physicians from the Palmetto Health/USC School of Medicine’s Departments of Family Medicine and Obstetrics/Gynecology along with Residents from Palmetto Health USC Medical Group.
We are happy to work with you whether you are a first time mom or if you have had many pregnancies before. We perform a urinalysis at every prenatal visit and are able to provide fetal monitoring and ultrasound testing at appropriate intervals. You will have the opportunity to meet other doctors who may be present at delivery. We work with you to assure a safe and as comfortable as possible prenatal care and delivery.
We do refer prenatal patients to obstetricians in Columbia for care, when we feel the pregnancy is high-risk. We feel it is important for both Mom and Dad to be well informed about pregnancy and deliveries thus we provide you with educational resources throughout your pregnancy.
We rely on you to let us know anytime during your pregnancy if you are having problems. If you need to contact us during our regular office hours call 803-635-6099. If you need to get in touch with us at other times, please call 803-434-6000 and ask for the Family Practice Resident on call for OB. In case of emergency during your pregnancy go to Palmetto Health Richland emergency room.
