If you have United HealthCare we are sure you are aware that as of 01/01/2020 Methodist Hospital is no longer in Network.

Our United HealthCare contract is NOT affected by this. We are a private practice so this will not affect our ability to see you for your appointments.

All current OB patients please speak to our staff if you have not already done so.

We are still hopeful that UHC and Houston Methodist will work out the issues and come to an agreement soon!
