Women who see their doctor regularly during pregnancy have fewer problems with their pregnancy and have healthier babies. The care you receive during your pregnancy and childbirth helps to detect complications a woman may develop during this period.
Our goal is to serve the residents of Montgomery County with the compassionate and quality health care they deserve.
The Obstetrics Clinic at Lone Star Family Health Center provides care for the pregnant woman (Prenatal Care) and care of Mom and baby after the delivery.
Lone Star Family Health Center is a teaching facility for physicians who choose to spend three years with us sharpening their skills after completing medical school. These physicians in training are called residents. Our experienced and skilled faculty members who practice obstetrics and family medicine closely supervise the resident physicians.
