  • Spanish speaker OBGYN in the Bay Area recommendation

    (1 reply)

    Hi, I am 4-months pregnant of my first child and I am looking for a recommendation of a Spanish speaker OBGYN who takes United Health Care, basically that is not in the Kaiser system. Preferably in the El Cerrito-Berkeley-Oakland area. I've been seeing a Spanish speaker doctor in the Sacramento area but I am afraid I need somebody closer in the Bay Area as a go further in my pregnancy. Thanks a lot.

Re: Natural Birth Dr Thomas @ Alta Bates 
I would recommend La Clinica sites for care. There are some fabulous doctors and midwives who work their, they are very compassionate and experienced. I especially recommend Dr. Thomas Halligan and the midwife, Mary Beth Canavan. If I were going to have another baby, I would use La Clinica, as my former fabulous obstetrician in San Francisco, Dr. David Ronk, retired. You might also want to find a good doula.
