I totally agree with the 5 star reviewer "DR. LANSDOWNE - EXCELLENT OBGYN" I'm currently pregnant with twins and from my first appointment Dr. Lansdowne has been honest,patient and very kind. She addresses all my questions and concerns. Before I found out I was having twins, I was considered "high risk" and Dr. Lansdowne explained to me the risk and procedures that would need to take place in order to continue my pregnancy safely. I'm currently taking medication to keep my contractions down and Dr. Lansdowne explained the purpose of the medication and its side effects. She also preformed my cervical clerage procedure and I was so delighted to see her the day of surgery because I knew I was in safe hands. I have visited labor and delivery multiple times and I TRULY get upset when she is not there because I have had some bad experiences with other doctors. Doctors who had given me Norco because they were sure it would "calm my uterus down" and stop the contractions. I was sent home by another doctor on staff with contractions that were 2min apart, but "normal". Dr. Lansdowne always takes extra steps to make sure me and my babies are okay before she sent us home. I truly appreciate her commitment to her patients and her work ethics. If your looking for a doctor to sugar coat everything and throw rose pedals at your feet I suggest you go to school and become a doctor because I would prefer Dr. Lansdowne to give it to me straight and be 100% honest with me than some candy coated high off caffeine unreliable doctor.
I was truly surprised to read the last reviewer's comments because it was Dr. Lansdowne's initial concern for me and my baby that led me to coming back to her for surgery as I encountered difficulty after the pregnancy.At the first appointment, I showed up late in the afternoon, a half hour after the appointment. Dr. Lansdowne assured me it was no probem and we didn't finish until after 6PM and I'm sure she got out of there much later. The history she took was thorough. During my pregnancy, although I had no symptoms, Dr. Lansdowne identified something called bacteral vaginosis. She treated it immediately and further tests indicated that it went away. Additionally, I called once complaining about itching and a discharge. She saw me the next day evaluated my symptoms, gave me medication and called me several days later to see how I was doing.When I was getting ready to deliver, a week before my due date, my contractions started coming about 4 minutes apart and my husband rushed me to the hospital. Dr Lansdowne was working that night. They placed a monitor on my abdomen to check the contractions and hear the baby's heart rate. They checked my cervix dilation which was not as large as they wanted it. A lot of time passed but I gave birth the next afternoon. Dr. Lansdowne was friendly, even loving, and I'm definitely seeing her again. I came back a few weeks later because I was leaking urine; Dr. Lansdowne performed the surgery. Again I found her bedside manner wonderful. It's been 5 months since the surgery and I'm very happy with the results.
I was pregnant with my first baby and after looking up the Kaiser Permanente OBGYN physician listings I found Dr Elisa Danielle Lansdowne M.D. The review of her credentials was pretty impressive and with this being my first baby, obviously I wanted a good doctor, unfortunately, that is far from what I got. As educated as Lansdowne is, she has a very poor bed side manner and made me feel ill at ease through out my whole pregnancy. I take full responsibility that I should have changed me doctor within the first couple of months but I kept thinking maybe the next appointment would be better.....by the 8th month I was praying that she would not be on call when I actually went into labour! I wanted a doctor that would give me some guidance and would not make me feel like just another patient but whenever I saw lansdowne she rushed through the appointments and made me feel like I should know exactly what was going on with my pregnancy even though I had never been through this before. I had 2 vaginal infections during my last trimester and was shocked that she did not want to see me sooner than the following month to make sure everything had cleared up ( which they didn't). It is pretty common that in your final month of pregnancy you see your doctor once a week lansdowne tried to make appointments to see me again in two and a half weeks.The biggest complaint I have with her that really does show her unprofessionalism was when I went into the hospital with Contractions that were 3 mins apart 3 days before my due date and as bad luck would have it she happened to by the OBGYN physician on call. I was being monitored by another doctor who had advised me to walk around for 2 hours to see if I would dilate anymore. when his shift finished Lansdowne came on ( it was about 3am) she came in and said to me, "I think I should give you a shot of morphine with a sedative and send you home because you are not going to dilate in 2 hours and then I will send you home anyway, it's your choice" I couldn't believe that she was going to send me home with my contractions so close together and ESPECIALLY after giving me an injection of morphine and a sedative together. I honestly felt like she just didn't want to deal with any patients that night. The reason I say this is because there was another women in the room next to me that she did exactly the same thing too ( we were both 3 days away from our delivery dates). Long story short, we were sent home and both myself and the other lady were back at the hospital the next day. I had my baby girl about 12 hours after I was admitted and THANK GOD I was seen by Dr Martinez that gave me the kind of care I had been lacking for the past 9 months. We Should NOT have been sent home.
