Dr K

Wow what can I say he is an amazing Dr he has delivered 3 of my boys with the total of 5 C Sections he has been the only Dr I could say helped me walk because with my previous 2 c sections with other Drs I could not even walk he is one of the best drs all staff is nice except some young girl in front the receptionist and she is very rude then you can't understand what she says she don't speak good English I would definitely recommend him since no one after 3 c sections wouldn't deliver my babies may God bless you Dr K

Patricia!!!!(patty) 😓

I would send a formal complaint to the Texas Medical Board of I had an issue with the Doctor but I dont. It's his insensitive staff Patty or Patricia. I called to schedule an appointment to start infertility treatment and there next available is not till the end of June. I told her I would research for another doctor and call back. I found another doctor and called her back for my records she was upset said they were understaffed and her phones wont stop ringging. Like thats my problem. Then she states "whats your hurry do you expect yo get pregnant immediately???" I was tryllu surprised and baffled. I told her whats your problem why in the world would you say something like that to any patient not just me. I know I cant get pregnant immediatly thats why i needed to see Dr. K. I tell her before hamging up that i would be there in an hour to pick up my records. To my surprise i adk to speak to Dr. K who I jist saw in the office walking a patient to the fromt counter. She states he wont see me unless I have an appointment. I tell he needs to know what incensitive people he has working in his office Patty. She starts says I DONT CARE.... I DONT CARE.... I was furious and hurt at the same time. I hope this review gets to the right hands and Patty is repremanded for her lack professionalism.

Bad business

I had twins in 2010 and this doctor delivered them he also did a tubal ligation. He didn't not explain the side effects that would occur or anything. He could have explained that there would be real bad cramping, sharp pains, back pains, mood swings, it's called PTLS (post tubal ligation syndrome) basically early menopause. I wish this never happened I been in pain for almost 4years ughh.

Run

This is not the OBGYN to go to. He delivered my first born 12 years ago. He walked in right as I started pushing guess cause it was a 2am deilvery. Used forceps I only pushed for 35 mins max. My son came out with a cone shaped head and is special needs. My other children were born with a better doctor and better hospital.

Rude and Stubborn

As of yesturday I am no longer a patient of Dr. Korhonen. I am currently pregnant with twins and Dr. Korhonen refuses to discuss any other birthing option other than a c-section, although I have no pre existing circumstances suggesting a c-section is neccessary. On two seperate occasions when I discussed my wanting to attempt a vaginal birth, his reasoning was that "what if your babies come at night while he or the anastesiologist were asleep." He even went as far as to trying to bully me into accepting a c-section by asking if was prepared to be responsible if something were to happen during a vaginal birth. He flat out refused to consider my request and became rude once I asked for a refal. And to make matters even worse, once I conceded that I would allow him to do the c-section if no other Dr. was willing to allow a natural birth he had his nurse require that I do a secondary glucose test. I was told that 3 days prior to this secondary test I would have to be put on a diet. The diet consisted of consuming (in addition to my normal food consumption) 2 cups of milk, 6 slices of bread, 1 cup of cereal, 1 cup rice,potatoes or grits, 1 tablespoon of sugar, honey or jelly, 8oz. of soda, 1 chocolate covered candy bar, 1 large slice of cake with frosting or pie and 2 sweet cookies. I asked the nurse as she gave me this "diet" was it a joke and she assured me it was not. Naturally i did my own research, consulted other nurses, actual diabetics and even a pharmacist and not one of them had ever heard of anything so ridiculous, stating that that diet would assure I tested positive for diabetes. Whats sad and illegal is that I believe it was done so that Dr. Korhonen could then have a reason to make a c-section neccessary. Essentially he was willing to risk my life as well as the lives of my unborn children in order to perform a major surgery that may not even be neccessary. :(
