The OBGYN practice is a well-oiled machine, and we have an experienced team to provide great quality of care.
The work week is Monday – Friday, with a lot of providers taking a half day on Friday. This is a practice where you will be busy, but not overwhelmed as we have a great support staff and everyone helps to make life easy for each other. “This team is great, I really trust their opinions. Especially Maria, she is the best I’ve ever seen. She makes me not want to leave here, ever”, Dr. White. We are dedicated to, and on the way to having “Baby Friendly Status”, were about half way there right now, and are anticipating accomplishing this in the next year or two.
We have 3 OBGYNs, 1 Midwife, 4 Nurses and 3 PAs to provide care for all our patients. We are currently experiencing outpatient migration to Fresno (24 Miles), Clovis (30 Miles) & Visalia (28 Miles) as we don’t have the staff to provide care to everyone in the area that needs it. There are currently talks for further expansion in the birthing center, in anticipation of continued growth of this department. The plan is to hire 2 additional OBGYNs, to make the team a total of five, which we absolutely have the volume for.
Once we have a new physician in place, we will communicate to our network of Primary Care providers in the area, as well as the general population that you are accepting new patients. We have 12 clinics and dozens of providers that will start referring patients to you right away. Your patient panel will grow very quickly. Within 3-6 months you should have a full panel of patients. You can expect, 50% OB, 50% GYN from the beginning. Adventist is also committed to hiring additional support staff in the hospital to continue the quality of care. We have enough patients for you to focus on either OB or GYN.
All physicians are given flexibility with their schedule to best accommodate their family life. You are not required to live in the city of Reedley, in fact most physicians live in the city of Fresno or Clovis, as it offers more amenities. As long as you can get to the hospital within 30 minutes, you can live anywhere in the area.
