"HSNT is a great place. Everyone has been so helpful and kind. The sliding scale allows me to have good quality healthcare that I can afford."- T.S. / Facebook / May 13, 2021
"I don't recommend. Brittney has made me feel invalidated since I started going there, so I skipped my apts with her. Some of the rooms are dirty, and alot if the staff is rude. My first time there the ladies at the front desk were speaking amongst eachother in Spanish instead of handing me my paperwork. Often time the on call nurses are extremely rude. I just spoke to one about a concern of mine, and she told me "I was just about to go to bed, and you called." That's extremely unprofessional. The only person there that was worth seeing was Dr. Assis, I'm not sure how to spell his name. Save yourself the time here."- K.W. / Google / May 10, 2021
"(Translated by Google) All the staff that I contacted was kind to me and answered any questions that I felt very comfortable on my first appointment. If I would recommend to my relatives (Original) Todo el personal con el que tube contacto fue amable conmigo y contestaron a cualquier duda que tube me senti muy comoda en mi primera cita.. Si recomendaría a mis familiares"- F.C. / Google / May 08, 2021
"Amazing staff. All the nurses are really nice and very professional. One of the nurses who drew blood from my two-year-old did it so fast that by the time he noticed she was already done. And the doctor I saw was very knowledgeable and able to answer questions that had stumped other doctors that I had been to."- P.M. / Google / May 08, 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!
