Seeking OBGYN or Midwife Kaiser SF


I recently moved to San Francisco and have Kaiser insurance. Does anyone have recommendations for a midwife or OBGYN? I prefer to have someone who is willing to take the time to answer my questions.

I've had positive experiences with Dr Pamela Chan out of the SF Mission Bay campus. I've seen her for over a decade and choose to continue seeing her even after I moved to the East Bay (i was still working in SF). She definitely takes the time to answer your questions, and i had a lot as i went through 3 recurrent miscarriages before finally getting one to stick! She was also helpful in getting me a referral to a Kaiser RE after 2 miscarriages (sometimes they apparently wont do that until 3). The SF Mission Bay campus is super nice/new too and it seems that the wait for things like labs/pharmacy is less than their main Geary campus.

My Berkeley OB/GYN moved to Kaiser SF a few years ago... Amy Huibonhoa. She is fabulous!! Truly, truly, I loved her. She definitely is very even-keeled, happy to listen, happy to talk, presents the data and makes recommendations, but I never felt pressured by her to choose one particular path over another. She's a pro.

I highly recommend Dr. Shawna Hedley at the main campus in San Francisco. I started seeing Shawna at the recommendation of my pediatrician in June 2019 (my longtime OBGYN doesn't do prenatal care). She's lovely, approachable, and thorough.
