During my first pregnancy, I switched to Dr. Culbertson in my last trimester and 5 years later, I am still thrilled with the quality he and his staff provide. Dr. Culbertson is supportive, informative, and takes time to listen and respond to all of my inquiries. I highly recommend him and his partners at Midtown OB/GYN!

Early in my pregnancy journey, I was referred to Midtown OBGYN, specifically Dr. Culbertson. I wish I could rate this practice 10 stars for how wonderful my experience has been. In light of the pandemic, the staff made every visit safe and personal even with the extra measures in place. The front office team is organized and communicative while always providing a friendly experience. Dr. Culbertson is kind, polite, and professional and his leadership resonates with his team. With this being my first pregnancy, I never felt rushed and no question was left unanswered. My birth plan was met with understanding and compassion. The knowledge and expertise of these providers is of the highest I have experienced. I live roughly 30 minutes away from Midtown OBGYN and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. We delivered at St. Joseph’s just to ensure we could have Dr. Culbertson caring for us. I highly recommend Midtown OBGYN to anyone.
