These messages will be from "Phreesia" (usually an 844 area code) and are legitimate. You must complete this check-in ahead of your appointment. If you are a new patient, you will be asked to provide insurance information, medical history, and sign necessary consents and privacy notices. Established patients and OB patients will have a brief check-in with COVID screening.

“This is the place for excellent care by people who love what they do! Breck was there for the birth of 2 of my babies and Dr. John has been my OB for over 10 years and 4 babies"
“I felt heard, genuinely care for, and empowered at each visit at Advanced Ob-Gyn. If you want your care to be less 'procedural' and more human please consider midwifery services”
“Breck and Sarah were amazing with my prenatal care and delivery. I knew I wanted midwife care, but the outstanding care these women provide is exceptional”
