How should you go about picking a good ob gyn?

How should you go about picking a good ob gyn?

Ask family & friends: Ask around. Those "top doctor" awards can only go so far. So ask your family & friends who they like. Also know what you need from your ob/gyn.

What licenses are required to become an ob/gyn?

A whole lot: Ob/gyns complete college, followed by 4 years of medical school, and then a grueling 4 year residency program.
