I only had my experiences in the hospital setting. Therefore, I did not choose her as my doctor. The first time was when I was admitted after a miscarriage and I had no issues. My L & D is another story. She was rough, not communicative, curt, and condescending. I would not recommend her for child birth and I think I'd be afraid of a regular pap too.
I was in the process of finding a new gynecologist when I was told Dr. Meade is leaving this practice. I wish I left her practice 10 years ago, and regret that I didn't. Like others have posted here, I never saw Dr. Meade in over 10 years, despite having 2 or more appointments at her practice each year. In some instances I had serious medical concerns that warranted invasive testing, and still never got to speak with Dr. Meade despite asking repeatedly if I could. The turnover of nurses and staff who worked for Dr. Meade was incredible with new personnel every few months. I had never seen anything like it. Seemed indicative of constant problems with the practice. I don't know if she left the practice in Milford, MA (Caring for Women) to open another practice somewhere else, but if she did I would think twice about choosing her!
I am new to the practice and have had a number of appointments. Each time I waited in the exam room for over an hour. When the nurse practitioner entered, there was no explanation or apology for the delay. When I mentioned that I'd been waiting in a room for over an hour -- past my appointment time (not in the waiting room where there is something to read), there was absolutely no response. It was as if I had never spoken. She just started the exam. I never saw the doctor even for the procedures. When the NP called about results, it was to read the Dr.'s report to me verbatim - which seemed really odd - because I'd never met the woman. Surreal. I won't be back.
After 7 years I changed Dr's because I just couldn't trust them...I had to leave after an incident where my Pap came back Abnormal, I have HPV and a history of abnormal Paps. They had to perform a Colposcopy for further tests. The procedure was performed by the NP (only saw the Dr. once in 7 years). The NP always took the time to listen to my by the way - but she left the practice last year. During my procedure she took two samples because she wasn't happy with the first one (ouch!) . I asked how bad it looked and she was forthcoming and very honest with me and said I would definitely need further treatment and gave me a pamphlet on LEEP to read. Naturally I was freaking out and restless waiting for the results. After a week passes with no call, I call the office. Of course they need to call me back with the results. I was shocked to here "Everything looks fine, see you in a year"...Um what? I asked if both samples came back normal and was told there was only one report for one sample. After probing them for information it turns out that only 1 sample made it to the lab. They blamed the lab for losing the sample of course. I was not comfortable with the result since I was told I would require further treatment, I did not want to wait a year! They reluctantly scheduled me for another Colposcopy; had to be wait 4 months to heal from the first. The results from that one - Stage 4 dysplasia-PRE CANCER!! Could you imagine if I waited a year? I went in for the LEEP, was given valium to relax so I was a little drowsy, laying on the table I see Dr. Mead enter the room. She didn't say much except for during the procedure I hear, "Oh, you have a IUD?" (Well you put it there! Read the chart before you enter the room!) After the procedure, while exiting the room she said "Since the cord on your IUD was cut you will need to get that surgically removed when it comes time"....Wish I had that information before hand, I would have had it removed before the LEEP....If I wasn't proactive with my health and the NP hadn't been straightforward with me this could have turned out very different. Makes me wonder why the NP left after so many years too. On top of it, my insurance would only pay for one Colposcopy so I was on the hook for the second one. Wasn't my fault that they lost a sample, but my body and pocket book had to pay the price... I see where their priorities lay. During a discussion with a staff member about the balance I owed them, as I was explaining all of the above-- she rolled her eyes at me...I called her out on it and she tried to justify it! Seriously? UNPROFESSIONAL, UNTRUSTWORTHY, UNCARING FOR WOMEN!
