Thank you for choosing Westar OB/GYN to care for you during your pregnancy. We are dedicated to providing the best care for you and your unborn baby. Our team of professionals provides a multidisciplinary approach to help you achieve the best possible outcome: a healthy mother and a healthy baby.
In order to have time to dedicate to their families and to limit sleep-deprivation while caring for patients, Drs. Alan Murnane, Angela Rouse, Seretha Ransom, Justin Himler, Alicia Thompson, and Elizabeth Cummins share call.
Dr. Cummins has her own practice on Lazelle Road, and shares our commitment to excellence in patient care. Westar OB/GYN doctors practice exclusively at Mount Carmel St. Ann’s Hospital. If you need to speak to a physician after office hours, simply call the main office number (614) 818-0300 and choose the option to speak to the on-call doctor. (If it is late at night and you are in labor, you can simply go to St. Ann’s and the doctor on-call will be informed by the hospital.)
Our Certified Nurse Practitioners, Katie Elliot and Carey Barber, and our Certified Nurse Midwife, Eileen Sirois, are an important part of our health care team. They focus on wellness care and patient education. If you have a noncomplicated pregnancy, you may choose to have most of your prenatal care with Katie, Carey, or Eileen, even though they do not deliver babies.
Our office will contact your insurance company to verify maternity benefits. We strongly encourage you to become familiar with your insurance company’s maternity benefit details as well. Our staff will establish a payment plan for the portion of your bill that your insurance is not expected to cover. We have found that ultrasounds, non-stress tests, lab work, and additional problem visits may not be covered. These services are billed separately, and will increase the cost of your care.
In this packet is an outline that describes what you can expect during the normal course of your pregnancy. We will discuss any differences your care may require as changes arise.
