    When I requested MY records for another Dr. to tell me my possibilities of a vbac. I was told I would be dropped from their care and I needed to explain why I was wanted them to Dr. Shakespeare. When I spoke to him he was upset because I had agreed to a csection with him, I told him I wanted to find out if a vbac was even a possibility and wanted to make an informed decision. He said he wasn't going to waste his time in someone that was looking around and dropped me from his care.

    He is amazing! Perfect bedside manner, doesn't sugar coat things but has a way of explaining that you truly understand.
