Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Maternal-Fetal Medicine

Maternal-fetal medicine is a subspecialty of obstetrics that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and on-going care of women who have a high risk of problems during pregnancy. This includes patients with a history of previous complicated pregnancies, chronic health conditions or medical issues that arise unexpectedly.

At Atlantic Maternal-Fetal Medicine, we offer a variety of services to both women with normal pregnancies and those who are at high risk:

  • Maternal fetal medicine consultations
  • Pre-conceptual consultations
  • Genetic counseling
  • Amniocentesis
  • Chorionic villus sampling
  • Routine ultrasounds
  • Fetal surveillance
  • Fetal echocardiograms
  • Sonohysterography
  • Gestational diabetes education and management

What to Expect

A maternal fetal medicine specialist, also called a perinatologist, works with a patient’s regular obstetrician to develop a care plan. Though a patient may have several appointments with the maternal fetal medicine specialist, the obstetrician will continue to manage the pregnancy and deliver the baby. Perinatologists are usually not present at delivery, but are available for consultation as needed.

Our maternal fetal medicine physician services are provided in collaboration with a specialized Atlantic Medical Group practice.
