One Star

Before I gave birth, I went through the process of creating a birth plan and trying to find a doctor that closest valued my needs. I thought that was Emily, as she presented herself as very accepting and willing to listen to what mothers want. HOWEVER, when it came time to give birth, she told me she wouldn't let me go more than a week overdue. But when her receptionist wanted to be induced a few weeks early so her baby could have the same birthday as someone in the family, Emily wanted me to wait until I was 42 weeks because she didn't want to have two women in labor on the same day. The day of, she informed me she would break my water whether or not I was comfortable with it and went ahead despite my protest to wait a little longer. During the birth, she cut me even though I specifically and repeatedly said I did NOT want to be cut - this resulted in more tearing. When my son would not come out, she placed a vacuum on his head. Unfortunately, he was not turned all the way and she pulled with such force that it came off, flinging blood across her face and leaving my son with muscular damage and swelling on the side of his head (resulting in a lazy eye that lasted for 6 months). When asked about the issue during the check up, she acted as if it was normal. In my medical file, she wrote that she removed the vacuum - blatantly lying to avoid legal trouble. Bottom Line: if you can choose a better doctor, please do so. She is not trustworthy.

NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY!!!!!!

This doctor personally kicked out a woman for breastfeeding her newborn in the waiting area! I am sickened by how backwards this office is! You should be encouraging breastfeeding and not kicking people out for it. I will not be returning or recommending this doctor to anyone else. I wouldn't trust her with any of my loved ones!!!!

Is there really a "Dr. Fernandez?"

Dr. Fernandez, whom I've never laid eyes on, replaced Dr. Parr, whom I've never laid eyes on, though both have been my doctor, in theory for quite some time. As an aging man, I am comfortable with a female doctor, or female nurse practitioner, or female physician assistant, but what I am not comfortable with is the requirement that I must discuss my maladies to the most private degree with secretaries, office managers, student workers, AMERICORP volunteers, etc. in order to try an earn a 5 minute phone call, much less an appointment.
