If you have a high risk pregnancy this is not the doctor. He has some sort problem with the high risk doctor at Sierra Vista and would not look at the ultra sound. He put myself and my child at risk because he desperately wanted to right. The on call doctor that delivered my child explained that Dr. Kunhardt makes numerous mistakes and he is there to clean up his messes. Remember that you dont want to be one of his messes. It is not worth your child life.
Response from Dr. George Kunhardt, MD
If a consulting specialist recommends induction I review your entire history and the latest literature.
For example a "Grade III" placenta was an indication for early delivery in the past, but there is NO current literature supporting, as long as the baby's growth is maintaining, the fluid around the baby has not dropped to lower than 5 cm & the NST shows the baby's heart rate is reactive.
Induction of a first baby carries a 32-60 percent risk of a C-Section frequently for fetal distress.
