Dr. Woelkers is an outstanding high risk OB doctor. He is caring, thorough and takes the time to explain in detail my medical issues with my baby. I have seen him several times and have never felt rushed. He called me to make sure I had follow up care and really cared about my baby's health. I wish all of the high risk doctors were like him.

Great Perinatologist!

I've seen Dr. Woelkers twice for ultrasounds (at Scripps Memorial LJ Perinatology), and my husband and I both really liked him. Dr. Woelkers is down-to-earth, pleasant, caring, and seems to be very competent and knowledgable. The ultrasound technician that worked with us (Romy) was also very pleasant and competent. Great equipment, too; new and state-of-the-art. Russell at the front desk is also great, and very helpful. Two thumbs up for all of them!

Dr. Woelkers is a wonderful physician! He spent an hour with me explaining in detail a management plan for my high risk pregnancy. He is compassionate and very knowledgeable. Because of his thorough care I delivered a healthy baby girl.
