With this partnership comes the adoption of a new medical records software system, new patient portal, and additional support to our practice.
THIS CHANGE WILL GO INTO EFFECT ON JANUARY 22, 2024!
You will be receiving emails and communications regarding our new patient portal, appointment reminders, and bill pay options, powered by Privia Health.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?We will still own and manage our practice, accept a variety of insurance plans* and keep our same location and contact information. You have online access to your medical records, view upcoming appointments, send patient messages/refill requests, and pay your bills online through the myPrivia app.
*It is your responsibility to check the network status of our office prior to your appointment, your insurance carrier can provide you with a list of all in-network providers.
Please note our policy regarding all prescriptions:
If you are having symptoms of a Urinary Tract Infection, Yeast or Vaginal infection, or need to refill current medications, please note that we will require you to have an office visit or telehealth visit before the provider will prescribe any medications. For your safety, we require that you have a medical assessment with clinical reviews that are essential for safe prescribing. Thank you for your understanding.
Vaccinations against Covid-19 is still important. In pregnant patients, Covid-19 can cause infection of the placenta and death of the baby in the uterus. While this is a rare occurrence, we must do all we can to prevent this. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine, including getting a COVID-19 booster shot when it’s time to get one, can help protect you and your baby from serious health problems from COVID-19.
If you are pregnant and have Covid-19, Westar OB Providers recommend the following to relieve symptoms and support your body’s natural defenses:
● Acetaminophen (Tylenol) to reduce fever
● Drinking water to stay hydrated
● Getting plenty of rest to help the body fight the virus
● 81 mg baby Aspirin a day-please consult with provider on when to initiate treatment
● Vitamins -D3 4000u/day, Vitamin C-1000mg, and Zinc 50 mg plus prenatal vitamin daily
● Treat symptoms and refer to the prenatal medication list
● Telehealths are offered for missed OB appointments due to Covid/quarantine
● Sonograms at 32 and 36weeks for fetal growth
If someone is showing emergency warning signs, get medical care immediately. Emergency warning signs include:
● Trouble breathing
● Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
● New confusion
● Inability to wake or stay awake
● Bluish lips or face
● Get to the ER if fever is >102.2 F and not reduced with Tylenol
Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions or concerns. Patients should be tested if possible and we do not do testing in our office.

“I love everything about this place from the front desk, to the nurses, to my doctor. They make me feel so comfortable and at ease with my first pregnancy I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!”
“All of the doctors in this practice are wonderful! I would trust each one of them to decide the very best plan of care for their patients. Not to mention professionalism and bedside manner.”
"Thank you all for the outstanding prenatal care, and special thanks to Dr. Murnane for a C-section and Kathy for her in-hospital post-natal check-in. I love that you all work harmoniously and encourage moms to get to know you
each individually. My care was all the better for it. I have felt so secure with Westar, very much like an individual, and not “a number”, and I know that it is not easy to provide that level of healthcare. Thank you!" - Carolyn
“I have been going to Dr. Murnane for over 10 years now and he's delivered my three beautiful bundles! I love the comfort of Westar OB/GYN and the flexibility with having more than 1 doctor available.”
