Piedmont Medical Center Partners Up for Maternal-Fetal MedicineNov 7, 2017
Maternal-fetal medicine provides expecting mothers with an opportunity to talk to a specialist for needed guidance to make decisions about her health and the health of her baby. This branch of medicine focuses on managing health concerns of the mother and fetus prior to, during, and shortly after pregnancy.
On August 19th, the first patients to be seen through this partnership will meet Dr. John R. Allbert, a Novant Health physician, in the Maternal-Fetal Medicine clinic at Piedmont Medical Center. Dr. Allbert attended the University of Texas Medical School and completed his fellowship at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. He is board certified in maternal-fetal medicine and obstetrics and gynecology.
