Appointment Information

Young Children. It is not recommended that you bring young children to your visits. This may prevent you and your partner from being able to fully discuss different aspects of your pregnancy. If bringing children, please have someone dedicated to stay with them during your visit.

Not feeling well? If you have a fever or known contagious illness, please call the office and talk with our nursing staff to determine if you should keep your appointment or reschedule.

Billing

Minnesota Perinatal Physicians is a hospital-based clinic, which means both a facility fee and doctor's fee may be billed for visits. If you see more than one doctor in a specialty clinic, you may receive bills from more than one practice. Upon request, we will provide you with a list of potential billing codes that may be used for your visit based on services performed. We cannot guarantee all codes will be known prior to your visit. Please contact your insurance provider to discuss coverage. Learn more at Understanding Your Insurance Coverage.
