Review of Dr. Marushin


Not a very personable Dr. After my ordeal, I had many health complications as a result and she actually suggested my partner was cheating on me (I had sores on my vagina she said it might be herpes but didn’t look exactly like it). She didn’t even give me the results after the fact. I looked it up and it was actually staph infection. I had a hemorrhage after labor and told them I thought I was bleeding too much and they dismissed me saying it was normal. I ended up passing out from blood loss. They had to give me three bags of blood after that. One weeks later had another hemorrhage again at home, went to the ER and they told me it was normal. One month later it happened again but way worse. I was visiting family at the time and went to a different ER. They pulled out a piece of placenta that was still in me and it was the size of my foot. Horrible Dr. and St. Cloud is a horrible place to give birth. If possible, give birth somewhere else where they actually care about you.

Review of Dr. Marushin


DO NOT go to Centracare OB or St. Cloud Hospital for prenatal care or delivery!!!!! My son was born via C-Section and the delivery doctor amputated part of his finger. Better yet- Centracare is refusing to take accountability for it (but preach to their employees how important accountability is.) My son will always be affected by this and they do NOT care.

Review of Dr. Martinson


I ended up in an early unnecessary induction which led to an emergency cesarean. I wish I knew then what I knew now to have said no. I would spared myself years of mental and emotional hardship. I continued care with her years later I told her I wanted to VBAC she literally laughed at me and said “I expect to section you again”. I left her and found a new OB successfully having a textbook VBAC.

Review of Dr. Stocker


With my first child, my OB didn't show up. Dr. Stocker filled in for my doctor. He had told me that I should be puking in pain before I ask for an epidural, because women in Africa do it every day without one. When it came time to break my water, I was not warned before hand and thought I had peed the bed. My over 24 hour labor ended in an emergency C-section after being at 9cm for 10 hours. Let's just say, I'm very scared to have my second.

Review of Dr. Stocker

- in Foley , MN |

Dr. Stocker is hands down the best doctor I have ever had. He was my doctor through infertility, pregnancy and 2 healthy deliveries! I wish he could continue to be my primary doctor, as I trust him with my life! Words cannot express my gratitude for this Doc! When we count our blessings, we count him twice!

Dr. Brown ended up performing my c-section and I was extremely pleased with her! If I have more children she will be my doctor!

Review of Dr. Matuska

- in St.Cloud, MN |

I delivered my first baby naturally at the St. Cloud hospital 21 years ago. Dr. Matuska was the Dr. on call when I delivered him but not my OB. I was so glad I was able to have her deliver my son! She had her hands full with that delivery and did great! I looked her up upon finding out I was pregnant with my daughter. I returned due to her professionalism, straight shooting personality and ability to stay cool under pressure. She was again, a pro. I have no complaints about her or her practice.

Review of Dr. Stocker


I would recommend Dr. stocker my husband and I can be more happier that we chose him. He is very down to earth,easy to talk to easy-going, and always gets the job done. I felt very comfortable being any concerns to him and knew that he would take care of them.I would definitely choose him again for my second child!!!!! Over all he was an amazing doctor!!!

Review of Dr. Pinkerton

- in Sartell, MN |

If I could give a score lower then one star, I would. Her poor clinical judgement almost cost my sons life. I told her I had ICP, and she told me I was wrong. Her exact words were "not all doctors are stupid you know". Don't trust her with your pregnancy. I'm lucky I get to see my son grow up. She's a joke of a provider. I'm a nurse, and she still didn't care what I had to say.

Review of Dr. Hanson


On the plus side appears to complete a chart review prior to your visit. On the negative side, decides what is wrong with you before talking to you. I found her rather rude, abrupt and demeaning.
