Update

Posted on September 21st, 2010 When I went into labor with my first, Cousins happened to be on call instead of my regular OB. I was the last patient on her shift before she went home, and boy did she take it out on me. She refused me an epidural when I asked and then screamed at me to "stop overreacting to everything" as I went from 5 cm to 10 cm in under an hour. It was truly an awful, traumatic experience. Just a nasty, nasty woman. Doctor's Response There must be a mistake because I do not practice ob, just abortion services. I am sorry about your experience but it must have been someone else. Patient's response: Nope, it was you. You are the only Amy R. Cousins, MD, licensed in the state of New York. It was at Mt. Sinai Hospital in NYC in 1986, and you were in practice with Jonathan Scher.

Never Again

Horrible. The only good part of the service is getting a quick appointment to be a lab rat. No bedside manners. No meds for infection or bleeding afterward. Received two infections which when I called afterward, because they say to call, was rudely told was my fault. My doctor told me it was from unsanitary equipment. I am 33 and have had the same partner for 7 yrs. Now i am requiring a second D&C to finish what they did not do right the first time.I will also be tested for Hep C which is a wonderful feeling. Yeah right. I regret ever going to a com passionless place. ALSO it was like a dog pound, only with women. You are there 5 hours because of so many other patients, Then you are rushed in, given medications by a woman who is VERY nasty and rushed out. A procedure like this should not be rushed. I am convinced that these so called women don't care about anything but their paycheck and being in nursing myself they should be ashamed. Quite frankly, I STRONGLY recommend any woman who is considering this procedure to not only think twice, and when they do and still decide on abortion to please go somewhere else for their own health and well being.

At a very emotional time, Dr. Cousins and her staff were absolutely fantastic and caring. My wait time left much to be desired, but the staff went out if their way to ensure I knew what was going on at each step, and was comfortable in proceeding.

Not As Bad As I Thought It Would Be

I was so nervous about getting an abortion. For one when I actually decided to call around and get an appointment in my hometown of Syracuse all dates were atleast 7 business days away and I was told it would take two visits in order to have my surgical abortion complete. I found Dr Cousins on google and they gave me an appointment in 3days. Before I arrived I read hundreds of surgical abortion experiences and it kind of scared me. But once I got to the office all of the staff were so friendly and comforting. When I finally went in the room for my surgery Dr. Cousins was very comforting and yet straightforward about what would take place. I wouldn't say she is a mean person but she is very stern which I feel is actually sort of helpful. The nurse that stands with you is so compassionate and wonderful and I am so greatful for her. I wouldn't say it was painful just very uncomfortable and it was over within what feels like 5min. When I went into the recovery area, again the staff was so nice and caring. They offered me crackers and ginger ale and even some to take home. I would recommend this place. The only weird downfall was that there were a group of protesters outside of the office. They weren't really aggressive and in your face but it would've been nice not to see them. But to whoever is reading this I want to let you know everything will be ok just take it a step at a time.
