We first met Dr. Ralston several months before the birth of our son due to a possible complication with the pregnancy. Dr. Ralston was not only very knowledgable about said complication but also very comforting and willing to spend whatever time was necessary to explain the condition. Our second experience with Dr. Ralston was on the night I delivered as he was the on call doctor. He showed stellar bedside manner and was again very comforting when a complication arose with my delivery. Dr. Ralston proved himself to have that rare combination of complete competence and humbleness. He thanked us for trusting him to deliver our baby safely after we needed forceps. In short, there is no one else I would rather have delivered my baby!!
Highly recommended. He is so nice and caring to his patients. He has given me a positive outlook on my high risk pregnancy compared to my regular ob. I am very comfortable being his patient. He listens to my concerns and does not rush his visits with me. At every visit he always tells me to call him with any pregnancy concerns or preterm labor symptoms, so I don't have to worry about being a bother to him or the office. I plan to go to him again in the future should I have another pregnancy.
