Patient education is a top priority for our doctors and nurse practitioners. While the internet can be a wonderful source of information, it can also be very dangerous. Many web sites contain advice and information that has not been scientifically studied, researched or proven, and therefore, could be detrimental to your health or the health of your unborn baby. Everyone at Teverbaugh, Croland and Mueller OB/GYN & Associates is committed to providing you with the most accurate and up to date medical information in order to assist you in making the best possible decisions regarding your healthcare. Below are several links to medically reliable, well-respected organizations in the OB/GYN community.
