Love this Doctor

I have had a wonderful experience with Dr. Cizmar. He was the doctor on call when I was delivering my daughter and he did such a great job that I switched to him when I was pregnant with my third baby. I had a wonderful pregnancy and delivery in the care of Cizmar and when I went to my six week check up I brought my newborn with me. At first I wasn't sure about this but my husband told me "He should get to see how the baby is doing." It was so awesome! Dr. Cizmar was so happy to see my baby. When the exam was over he asked to hold him. So sweet.

One Star

His was the worst bedside manner I've experienced with a gynocologist! Made me wait over an hour in room for biopsy results that he didn't realize had been botched so we're inconclusive. Then had me in stirrups after exam with my body exposed to a learning intern(who botched painful biopsy by the way)the whole time we discussed my options.

Great Friendly Doctor

I was referred to Dr. Cizmar by Rachel Krochmal, PA (they work together in the same office). He was very professional and very friendly. He performed outpatient surgery on me. I had full confidence in him.

Patient

Dr. Cizmar is a very professional and capable doctor. He listens to his patients wishes and doesn't try to push an agenda. My wife and I had our other children by midwife, but needed some pain management because of a bulging vertebrae disk. She was concerned about the C-section centric attitude exhibited by most OB/GYN's, and wanted to have an otherwise natural (Vaginal) birth (had full natural midwife births, but because of bulging disk, my wife needed an Epidural). Dr. Cizmar's vaginal delivery technique was incredible, and I would say very similar to the techniques used by Midwife's. He never brought out the scalpal as a 'point of procedure' as most doctors will, and was overall very comfortable and competent at delivering a baby vaginally. It's amazing how many OB/GYN's might be very capable at C-sections (where they make ton's of money), but are terrible at vaginal births. It's one of the reasons which drove us to a Midwife in the first place. With Doctor Cizmar, you can know that if you express your desire for a natural birth that he will do all he can to ensure that happens, and when the time comes, he is more than capable and competent at delivering a baby vaginally. It's a skill rarely seen these days with most doctors. If you've ever seen the skill of midwife's in delivering babies, you would know why it's impressive to say how skilled Dr. Cizmar is in this regard.
