Dr. La is on call Monday – Friday of every week. However, he does share “on call” coverage with several other OB/GYN physicians on weekends, vacation and holidays. All of the OB/GYN physicians are associated with West Houston Medical Center and are board certified. If your baby should be born on a weekend when Dr. La is not on call, one of the other physicians will deliver your child. This rarely happens (10%) but it could occur.
In the event that another physician delivers your child, you will NOT be responsible for paying that physician for his/her care. This is a reciprocal agreement that all the “on call” physicians have with each other.
Please feel free to discuss with Dr. La, in more detail, information regarding coverage policies and schedules.
