I am staying in Jersey City, and am pregnant with twins ..

Now I need to find an OB/GYN who is good in delivering twins.
I would prefer doctor who delivers at 'Jersey City Medical Center', as this is close to my place.

However I am open to suggestion for nearby areas.

Please help me with this.

Thanks.

I had a high risk pregnancy in 2007 and was seen by a doctor at Hackensack. I had to be referred to the practice by my regular OBGYN, but it was the best thing that ever happened. It is Dr. Alvarez's practice (although I never met him, he hires other doctors in the hospital to work in his office) and I think it's called Maternal Fetal Department. They are right in the medical center on the 6th floor. They have everything there, including ultrasound. My doctor was even able to do an amnio in the office when I was 38 weeks along. The nurses are incredible too and the office staff is very helpful. Good luck!

Thanks for your reply.

I can go to Manhattan also, as it is close to Jersey city, do you have any suggestions for any high risk pregnancy Manhattan doctors?

St. Barnabas Maternal/Fetal Medicine practice is great. Dr. Leon Smith, Dr. Miller, a few other drs. All excellent. St. Barnabas also has a top rated Level 1 NICU. It's in Livingston, I'm guessing 30min west of Jersey City.
