About our fees and your insurance

Payment, including insurance co-payment, is expected at time of service. We accept most insurance plans. If you belong to an HMO, please be familiar with their referral policy. We need a 72-hour notice to process referrals, forms and certificates; we cannot authorize referrals after your appointment. We'll help to arrange any tests or referrals with specialists outside our office.

Emergencies during regular hours

Call 610-776-4758 if you need to be seen the same day for an emergency.

Emergencies after hours

Call our 24-7 Nurse Line at 610-776-5400. Our on-call triage team will help determine whether an emergency visit is required. In life-threatening emergencies always call 911.

Obstetric Services

At Sacred Heart HealthCare System, our obstetric providers are specially trained to provide optimal care for you and your baby before, during, and after your pregnancy. At each appointment, you will learn about the development of your baby as well as have the opportunity to discuss any problems, concerns, or questions you may have about your pregnancy, labor, or delivery.

At your appointments, your obstetric provider will go over any risk factors you may have for pregnancy complications such as preeclampsia or gestational diabetes, design a regimen for prenatal visits, discuss the amount of appropriate weight gain, prescribe prenatal vitamins or other appropriate therapies, order prenatal labwork and ultrasounds, create safe activity guidelines and discuss proper nutrition for you and your baby. Your obstetric provider will also help you decide if you have any risk factors that may require a consultation with a perinatologist (high risk pregnancy specialist).
