I have been a patient of Dr. Twede since 1991. I have had 3 of my children with him, an endometriosis surgery, and a miscarriage. Dr. Twede took the time to assist me during a very difficult time. He has an incredible bedside manner, even at 3am! :) Dr. Twede, Diana,the receptionist, his nurse, and Linda Goodenough PA, have always been very sweet and helpful to me. They have always done an excellent job for me and my family. The billing staff is professional and easy to work with. They really went the extra mile with me. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! Because Dr. Twede always took just the right amount of time with me. I have never felt rushed. He is extremely knowledgeable. In an OBGYN office, they have patients having babies and it hasn't happened very often, but if they need to reschedule, they do so that I can get in quickly.
I was out of town and had a miscarriage, the emergency room referred me to Dr. Twede for a follow up. Right from the beginning the staff was unfriendly and I waited to see the doctor for over a half an hour. When I finally was seen Dr. Twede came in the room and told me congratulations! I had to tell him 3 times that he had the wrong chart until he stopped congratulating me... Even once he realized that I had a miscarriage and that congratulations were definitely not in order his bedside manner was abysmal. Did he feel bad? I have no idea, he didn't even apologize and with no real compassion he got down to business and basically just went through the motions to get me out of there. Then after the appointment is was like pulling teeth to get my records sent to my real OB. WOULD NOT GO BACK AGAIN!
A few years ago I left a positive review on here for this dr. Not the type to leave reviews but I feel the need to share. Dr twede was great as a surgeon for me. He did a lap for me & a D&C. However. I struggled to get pregnant & had several issues causing this. At first they put me on clomid & kept drawing my blood, with no ovulation success. But never bothered to check for cysts. When I went in for an ultrasound, I had a cyst almost 10 cm in size & almost lost my ovary to it. You could tell when he saw it he thought "oops!". I could have forever lost my chance to possibly have children because of their incompetency. When I finally did get pregnant after an insemination, (by the way the nurse who performs this is so kind & wonderil & even gave me her cell phone number in case I had questions), the PA female dr there was so rude to me when I wanted hormone levels checked because of family history of miscarriage. She argued with me & didn't want to "approve" it. The nurse at the time was also very rude, but he cycles through nurses so fast she was gone within 3 visits. Anyway, at our first ultrasound, he was very behind & kept leaving the room to see other patients & making us wait. When the dr can't find a heart beat on Doppler & leaves you waiting 15-20 min to do ultrasound it's very nerve wracking. He did an external & couldn't find anything (even the baby) so said he wanted to do internal, & left again for another 15 min to see another patient. When he came back, us being nervous wrecks, did internal & sure enough our baby had passed. I believe it passed because of him not telling me to increase my thyroid medication once I got pregnant. I also know I have a low progesterone problem now, but at the Time I didn't. Thyroid meds must be increased by 30-50% as soon as you fall pregnant or major risk of loss. After wards his waits became longer & longer, me even waiting for 90 minutes for an appointment. He was always rushing literally jumping up & running out of room & I had to keep saying wait I'm not done I have a question! I always had to reexplain my history every time I saw him. It went down hill very quickly, he lost all bedside manner. I left to find a real fertility dr & got pregnant within 2 tries after all kinds of amazing tests he never bothered to order. I began seeing Russell smith after I got pregnant. Let me tell you, when you finally see a dr who has compassion, time, caring, it's a world of difference. Russel smith is an incredible dr & I'm so mad I put up with twede as long as I did. Diana the receptionist is wonderful though.
