Patient Resources

At Perinatal Specialists of the Palm Beaches, P.A., we think it’s important for our patients to have reliable resources they can reference outside of our offices. We have pulled together a list of terms that may apply to some of our higher risk patients. We wanted to be sure to point you to some resources we consider valuable as you do your online searching. And you can always speak with our providers during your office visits or call one of our nurses for additional information.
