Dr. Egglestob is hands down the best doctor I've ever had. He guided us through our difficult pregnancy in 2013 and never left our side. He shared his own experiences with us and we all shared tears together. He always went above and beyond. He didn't candy coat things and was very honest about not knowing for sure if our son would make it outside of the womb or not. He was always by our side and never rushed. He was genuine and literally the best doxtor I know. I wish we didn't have to move away!! Our son is now 16 months old and we are forever grateful for the care provided from Dr. Eggleston. I truly believe part of the reason our son is still here is because of him. :)
Where to begin and what to say. It was 26 years ago. I had pre term labor at 22 weeks gestation, and ultimatley my water broke. I was sent to Johnson City Medical Center in Johnson City Tennessee. This is where I first met Dr. Maurice Eggleston. Oh, he is a true gem, one of the finest I have ever met. For the next 55 days I say his bright smiley face in my room to check in on me and his "little squeek". He would pat my tummy and ask "Hows my little squeek today?" He always took his time to answer any questions I had. He sat with me many times, he even cried with me at one point when so many things seemed hopeless. My stay was expected to be 3 days -3 weeks but I suprised them all staying with ruptured membranes for 55 days. He even helped the nurses and interns coordinate a baby shower for me. My baby boy had a 20% survival rate, but he made it through with shinning colors. Dr. Eggleston made many trips to the nursery to visit and at one time asked if he could hold my little boy, where he said to him "Hello little fellow, I am your Uncle Maurice". The best Dr. ever to walk this earth. I was devistated to learn he left the area. The little squeek grew up from a 4 lb 7 week premature baby boy to a USMC Corporal. I love Dr. Eggleston and I recommend him with flying colors, consider yourself lucky to have him as part of your parinatal experience.
Dr.Eggleston took care of me during two of our pregnancies. Both were high-risk. We had already lost eight pregnancies before we met Dr. Eggleston. When we met him,I was in my second trimester and had been sent because there was something wrong with my labwork. He found out that our baby had a bad birth defect (that caused us to lose her right after she was born). He was there with us every step of the way and never let us feel like we were alone. He also had figured out what was wrong that caused all of my miscarriages! Two years later, we got pregnant again and I had a lot of problems with early preterm labor and high blood pressure. He was great! He understood our fear of losing another baby and "held our hands" through this,too. Our son came at 29 weeks because the toxemia got so bad. Those first months were really scary, and he continued to stay involved with our family the whole time, long after my OB needs were over, until our baby was ready to come home. He even visited the nursery. He is a true hero to us. If you're looking for somebody you can trust and know you are getting the very best medical care available, Dr. Eggleston is the doctor.
This afternoon, our baby was stillborn; she died from Parvovirus. Dr. Eggleston was kind, gentle, very knowledgeable. He prepared us for the death yesterday by telling us of the realistic, but slim, chance of survival of our baby. He spent 2 hours sitting in our room with us, just talking, about us, our baby, his life and experience. Never once did he look at his watch or ever seem in a hurry. Dr. Eggleston is simply the best doctor I have ever met and an absolute expert in his field. If you have a high risk pregnancy anywhere near Indianapolis, Dr. Eggleston and his partner Dr. Sumners are the ones to see.
