Our pregnant patients meet with their healthcare provider and may participate at regularly scheduled group sessions with women who are at similar stages in their pregnancy. Education on nutrition, breastfeeding, parenting and childbirth is provided. Group sessions allow women to learn together and to share their pregnancy experiences.
We follow the Centering model of care and have four trained certified faciliators for Pregnancy Centering. Click here to learn more about Pregnancy Centering.

Ask Us Anything
Most Catholic Health primary care centers offer same-day appointments. Please call the office to schedule your appointment.
Call 911 (Emergency Medical Services) for any life threatening emergency that requires immediate medical care (inability to breathe, severely choking, unconsciousness, seizure, etc.). For poisonings, call the Poison Control Center (716) 878-7654 or 1-800-222-1222.
If you become ill or are injured after office hours or during a weekend or a holiday, your call to the office will go through our answering service. Please limit calls to emergencies or other urgent problems that cannot wait until morning.
The Catholic Health primary care centers accept most insurances, including Medicaid and Medicare.
Healthcare assistance on a sliding fee scale is available for those who are under-insured or uninsured.
If you are uninsured, you may qualify for Medicaid, Family Health Plus or Child Health Plus.
Medicaid: Our Medicaid advocates will assist you in submitting your application. When you come in for your first appointment, our advocate will walk you through the application process, from beginning to end. Once the application is complete, the advocate will deliver the application in downtown Buffalo for you.
Fidelis: Fidelis representatives can help you apply for Fidelis in the waiting room on designated days. If Fidelis representatives are not available on the day of your visit, we can refer you to a representative to arrange for a visit. Please call our office for more information.
Prescriptions will be refilled only during office hours because we need your chart handy to check on dosages and disease status. Plan ahead so that you do not run out of important medicines. (Call at least 48 hours prior to your need to have a prescription refilled.) Always have the phone number of your pharmacy available when you call the office.
