No thank you!

Dr. Hoods office staff seemed competent. We had a rough weekend with some bleeding and received great news (heartbeat) with the ultrasound. But upon meeting Dr. Hood, decided she was not for us. She was very sarcastic and used intimidation in an attempt to tell me that a certain precaution (IV portal) I did not want to use was necessary. I do t mind having a discussion about my preferences but she was so arrogant and belittling that my face was red and I wanted to cry. I would never have someone like that deliver my baby. Kindness seems to be an ever fading trait among female doctors but I consider it a blessing that I got to see this side of her early on.

This is my second pregnancy with Dr Hood as my doctor, and we love her! Her office staff is caring and competent, and her nurse treats me as if I were her own child she were concerned for. I always have the opportunity to ask questions, and I always feel heard and acknowledged when I leave. In response to some of the negative comments below, I would say that Dr Hood does not put up with nonsense because she cares for the well-being of her patients and their babies, but I have never heard a vulgar word from her mouth and she has always been respectful to me. False expectations need to be managed - labor and pregnancy is highly unpredictable and sometimes there will be longer wait times than others, but I have noticed a huge improvement in the wait times this pregnancy than last due to some changes in the hospital call schedule and the addition of a partner in her practice. We are very satisfied!

She did not disclose proper side effects of medicines, and then when I asked about my chronic hair loss (I ended up having to buzz all my waist long hair off), she said "it'll grow back". I had mentioned that aleopecia runs in my family and I need a pill that does not aggravate that, so she gives me microgestin fe 1/20, which is the very high androgen WORST pill I could have gotten. My hair still hasn't grown back...
