Never again!

As a birth professional, I do not recommend this doctor. He was my dr in 2008. Skipped around questions, extremely painful cervical checks including one at 36w ending in a handful of blood. I birthed my son three days later. Told me women don't have back labor. Pushed 2x before he got impatient and used the vacuum before asking for consent. My son's cord was cut immediately and whisked off. Placenta was manually extracted. Apparently he had a better agenda than good bedside manner on a holiday.

worst ob/gyn ever

dr. shikary was my daughter's obgyn in 1996. he delivered her child by emergency c-section. my daughter nearly bled to death as a result and was refused a transfusion. (even the nurse on duty questioned this as her blood count was so low). he put her on mega doses of iron instead which gave her iron poisoning. his response to that was, "she has to take it". i converted her to a vegetable based iron supplement and other herbs/supplements to restore her to health which worked well. after her follow up she had a very abnormal pap smear. i was concerned and he said it was, "nothing to worry about". later she had dr. shikary also do a tubal to prevent pregnancy. she got pregnant following this with an ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage. her tubes had come untied. after another pap smear by a new doctor who handled the miscarriage, it was still abnormal . she had cancer and now required surgery for that. her new doctor repaired her scar from the c-section, saying it was a "butcher job". her new ob/gyn not only repaired the damage dr. shikary had made, but also saved her life. if my daughter had remained with shikary she would now be dead.

I can't believe someone gave you back your license...Tell me, is it a common practice to stick an ungloved arm in a woman's uterus to locate the placenta?
