As a 41 year old Mom-to-be carrying twins, my pregnancy was considered high risk and I was sent to Dr. Traynor because of his expertise as a maternal - fetal specialist. During my 20th week it was discovered that one of the babies had a dangerously slow heart rate. Because of the excellent care and support of Dr. Traynor, both boys were delivered near full term and are thriving today. Dr. Traynor and his staff were truly amazing and I highly recommend his practice.
