I tried to give this zero stars out of four. It wouldn't let me. Horrible, horrible doctor. She might be great to those who don't need any help. She cancelled more appointments than I actually had; often right as I showed up at the office. She rushed through visits, couldn't be bothered with my questions and God forbid I expressed fear or anxiety about anything with my first child. I was having strange symptoms for two weeks. When I called the office, 2 or 3 times I got brushed off as just being a "nervous" mom. My son was born 13 weeks premature. I wasn't making things up! I don't recommend this doctor at all. There are too many other, really good ones out there. Take the time to look and follow your gut. If you're not getting the attention you need or you're feeling uncomfortable about anything, find someone else!!!!

Rude and discourteous

Horrible experience at this office. The nurse practitioner, Susan, is the only compassionate one in the entire office including the front help. Dr. Debaptiste is rude and short and doesn't take time to answer questions. I have had appointments cancelled on me with no notice. Had my husband take the day off work, I showed up for my appointment and the rude office staff told me I needed to reschedule. Never occurred to them to call me ahead of time and let me know this. In short--go somewhere else!!! With the exception of the NP, (who is probably the sole reason this practice thrives), I would never recommend this office to anyone.

Love her

She delivered both my of my children. I thought she was great! She is direct and to the point. She might not be all warm and fuzzy but she is an excellent doctor. I have a friend who works at the hospital and she had nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr. D. I nursed both my girls and she was incredibly supportive of breastfeeding. She helped me when I developed an infection from breastfeeding too. I have since had other issues and I feel she is determined to get to the bottom of it. I highly recommend her to anyone!

Five Stars

Dr. DeBaptiste is an excellent doctor. I see a lot of people complaining about her bedside manner on here, but I think it is just that she is quite. She isn't going to coddle you and make a big deal over everything you tell her- but you can tell she cares. She is a very intelligent doctor and I felt like I was in great hands during the delivery of my son. I would recommend her to anybody.

LATE LATE LATE

Not only is this doctor and her associate late with keeping appointments this Dr. Seems to have some sort of problem with the way she talks to her patients. She spends maybe two minutes with you after you are left their waiting in the office for more than an hour in a hot room. After the wait she condescendingly speaks to you as if you are a two years old. Im 36 weeks pregnant and she has yet to even speak to me about a birthing plan. I am finding a new doctor before I give birth. I do not want her to be near me when I give birth!
