Emory Adds High-Risk Pregnancy Specialists to Maternal-Fetal Division
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the Emory University School of Medicine has recently expanded their team and welcomed four new maternal-fetal medicine specialists. They bring their expertise to help treat women with complicated and high-risk pregnancies.

"We're continuing to expand our clinical practice to bring the most qualified candidates to the Emory family," says Sarah Berga, MD, James Robert McCord Professor and Chair of the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Emory University School of Medicine. "It's a pleasure to welcome our new additions. They will undoubtedly add to the high quality of our practice and complement the mission to enhance our patient care."

Paul J. Weinbaum, MD, MS will serve as an associate professor in the department of obstetrics and gynecology, as well as the director of perinatal and maternal-fetal medicine at Emory Crawford Long Hospital. He came to Emory from Prince George's Hospital Center in Maryland where he served as the director of maternal-fetal medicine and director of the Perinatal Diagnostic Center.

"My interest was to return to academic practice and teaching after a number of years in practice in a large tertiary community facility," Dr. Weinbaum says. "I hope to play a major role in the growth of high risk obstetric practice at Emory and to provide both direct patient care as well as consultation and teaching for residents, fellows, and attending OB staff."

Dr. Weinbaum received his medical degree from New York Medical College. He completed his internship in surgery at Rhode Island Hospital, followed by his residency for obstetrics and gynecology at the Women & Infants Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island. Dr. Weinbaum subsequently completed a fellowship at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Among participation in other organizations, Dr. Weinbaum is a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist, a member of the Society of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, and a special reviewer for the "American Journal Obstetrics & Gynecology." He has a strong interest and experience in international medical efforts. He has given lectures and presentations in Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, and the Czech Republic. Most recently, he was part of a medical mission to assist in the set-up of perinatal services in several village clinics in Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria.

Also joining the division under the direction of Dr. Weinbaum are Michael O. Gardner MD, MPH, Nora M. Doyle, MD, MPH, MSc, and Nicole P. Yost, MD.

Dr. Michael O. Gardner joined Emory as a professor following his work as an associate professor at the Baylor College of Medicine. He received his medical degree from the Texas Tech School of Medicine, completed his residency at the Texas Tech Regional Academic Health Center in El Paso, Texas, and subsequently, a fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He earned his masters in public health with a concentration in health policy from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, School of Public Health.

Dr. Nora Doyle was most recently employed at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and now joins Emory's department of obstetrics and gynecology as an assistant professor of maternal fetal medicine.

After receiving a medical degree from Emory University School of Medicine, Dr. Nicole P. Yost completed her residency and fellowship at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Prior to joining Emory as an assistant professor in the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Dr. Yost was an assistant professor at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
