"Absolutely the best experience! From start to finish. The peds care about my baby and sonja is the best! She explains everything and helps me to understand everything!"- K.M. / Google / Aug 06, 2021
"Wasn't a fan of the pushiness / complete disregard for our family history of serious injury post-shots. The pediatrician completely ignored and invalidated our concerns and the needs for our kid, but had plenty to say about getting shots despite our pending exemption,obvious outspoken position, and family history of reactions. Also, pretty much held a referral over our head because we disagreed. Biased, doubtful and eager to push us in a direction we AREN'T going. Sorry, doc. You're not going to change the minds of families who have seen what a real debilitating reaction looks like and have been paying medical / therapy / child-care bills out of pocket for years due to liability-free products y'all thrust on us. In Fact, I'd give everything in my possession to take away all the shots my daughter received. Parents (and pediatricians) please check out Learntherisk (dot) org if you want to look at risks beyond a watered down profit-motivated pamphlet you're given in a lobby. Clean facility, fast appointment, responsive, but long wait time. Also, went to a different practice the same week for a check up. They completely respected our decisions, didn't fight us on our position once, or bring it up for that matter, and genuinely helped with our needs, concerns and took the referral we needed seriously. Keep shopping if you don't trust your gut, parents. Personally I can't trust a doc that invalidates our experiences and ignores our concerns."- S.D. / Google / Jul 31, 2021

What are common symptoms of pregnancy?
During your pregnancy, you may have some symptoms that you can treat at home with over-the-counter medications or home treatments. Common symptoms of pregnancy include:
- Aches and pains
- Common cold, fever, nasal congestion, cough
- Changes in bowel movements
- Heartburn (indigestion)
- Nausea and/or vomiting
We can educate you on which over-the-counter medications are safe to take during your pregnancy to help you adjust to new symptoms as they arise.
During Your Prenatal Visits
If you are visiting us for a possible pregnancy, we will perform pregnancy tests in-house for your convenience. You can also expect a more in-depth appointment if your test is positive — a physical examination, blood work, a medical history, a pelvic examination, and ultrasound as ordered by your Health Services of North Texas physician.
You will have multiple visits throughout the pregnancy, which will be determined by your physician. At each appointment, we will assess your health and check on your baby, too. We will listen to the heartbeat and do checkups and tests as needed. Women with a high-risk pregnancy will likely have more appointments with a shorter time between visits. Of course, your prenatal visits can also be the time to ask questions about any problems or concerns you have with your pregnancy. We are here to help you have a healthy pregnancy!
