We're relocating to Austin later this month and I am looking for an excellent high risk OB. We will be living in SW Austin, near Circle C and I have no idea where to start....any recommendations on a specific doctor? which is the best hospital in the area for delivering a baby? Do any have a level IV NICU?

Dr. Diana Weihs is fabulous. I met her in the ER during a very scary medical emergency and if I were having a high risk pregnancy in Austin, I would choose her in a heartbeat.

Women Partners in Health overall is a wonderful practice. I second Topaz' suggestion.

Dr. Weihs is also my doctor and she is very caring. Would also recommend her. If she is not a high risk obgyn then I'm sure one of the women doctors in her practice are. I've also been through a high risk pregnancy, although not in TX and I know how stressful it can be. Best of luck to you.

Only one choice, as far as I'm concerned. Diana Weihs.

I don't know if Weihs does a lot of high risk or not. But my BF loved her and she is picky about her docs. Another dear friend left a popular Austin OB after 4 miscarriages and had great success with Dr. Jeff Youngkin at St Davids. Considered one of the top docs in TX per Texas Monthly, FWIW.

Here's the "Super Doctor" link to Texas OB/Gyn. Weihs is on the list, btw.

Paul Bushart, located in Central Austin, is fantastic. He handles all kinds of pregnancies, but I would go to him if I had a high-risk situation. He would have no trouble referring me to who he thought was best to handle a high-risk pregnancy if he felt he wasn't the one.

He's kind, caring, thorough, and his office staff is great. Seton Central has the NICU you're looking for.
