Hi, I’m Dr. Darren Watts. I am an obstetrician and gynecologist at St.
Marks OB/GYN Associates. St. Marks Hospital offers a unique experience. It’s small enough that it keeps it personal. It’s big enough that we have all of the specialties,
we have all of the things that make it safe for delivery. We have the highest level NICU. The personalized care that you get at St.
Marks Hospital is, I feel, unique to all of the other hospitals and it’s allowed me to
totally enjoy what I do. As it relates to Obstetrics, I feel like a
focus of mine is to lower C-section rates and the reason for that is a vaginal delivery
offers less complications, less pain associated with recovery, and sometimes an ability to
be able to care for your new baby. Unfortunately, about 30% of our visits in
Gynecology are associated with pelvic pain. This is something that plagues a lot of women. With my years of experience in working in
chronic pain I feel like I can address a lot of these issues and deliver the most appropriate
treatment. I do love people, that’s a big part of this
job is to be able to say I can sit down and listen and direct care. That’s what I love about my job, honestly.
