At Village Obstetrics we track some of the quality measures advised by the National Quality Forum, The Joint Commission, Healthy People 2010/2020 and ACOG as well as some of our own.

High Patient Satisfaction
"Your phenomenal skill and patience made my VBAC possible. That experience gave me the confidence needed for my latest delivery. I am still reeling and amazed from giving birth naturally without pain medication! Your practice is the standard by which all should be measured!"
With Much Respect, Gratitude and Affection,
"My pregnancy, and in particular, my labor and delivery were incredible and would not have been that way without you. My birth experiences were each transformative and empowering. I'd never have gotten that with other doctors."
Helping Build Families,
"We feel like we won the lottery finding your practice… If I had been with any other doctors, I believe it would have ended in a repeat c-section. You fought for me to have the experience I desired and didn't give up, even when I had given up on myself. So unbelievable!"
Sometimes no intervention is needed and at other times quite a bit is required, but our approach is always gentle and respectful.
