Monique Pickens is a third-generation Camarena Health patient who, at the time of her interview, was 21 weeks into her second pregnancy. According to her, there was never any question that she was going to entrust her new pregnancy to Camarena Health.
“I’ve been going here since high school,” said Monique. “I love my OB, Ms. G. She’s real; she keeps things simple. Camarena Health is hands-on, they take care of you, and they just always make sure everything’s okay.”
Because she is diabetic, Monique’s pregnancy carries certain complications that other mothers-to-be might not expect. But Monique knows that her provider has accounted for her diabetes, and Monique has taken it upon herself to utilize most every expectant mother program that Camarena Health offers.
“At your first appointment, your OB will tell you about all the opportunities you have during your pregnancy. They tell you that you can go to behavioral health, go to CPSP, go to stuff even after you have your baby. All those things are in one office,” says Monique. “I go across the street for bloodwork, but I come to A Street for everything else.”
Everything Growing Families Need, All in One Place
That ease of access is especially important for Monique, who schedules appointments for both herself and her three-year-old son. Because most all of Camarena Health’s services are available in one central location, Monique and her son can schedule their appointments together, and get back to their day as quickly as possible.
“If I have an appointment here, I can run across the street and go to his appointment, or go to his dental upstairs,” says Monique. “Which is always easier, when they can see him and me at one location.”
