After my NT/first trimester screen, she called me to say my baby tested positive for down's syndrome. I rushed to take an expensive test (which insurance doesn't cover, of course). The expensive test came back clean. It was only after I obtained my original bloodwork that I saw everything listed as "normal." I have no idea if she mixed me up with someone else or just wanted to get more $$$ out of us, but it was cruel and unnecessary to put us through that stress.

Doctor Landy was horrible. She was not compassionate at all and kept telling us that we should reduce our triplets because of the risk of downs syndrome, which we were not worried about. She also did not know that blood testing does for genetic risks does not work in multiple gestations and kept asking us to do CVS even though the risk of loss is high. She also refused a cerclage on multiple occasions which potentially would have saved our children. Very disappointing and discriminatory.
I am so sorry that your experience with me was so awful and that I made such a negative impact on you. Your pregnancy was extremely high risk - and I try very hard to provide patients with an understanding of potential problems that could develop during pregnancy. In doing so, I believe it is my responsibility to explain different options as well as benefits or limitations. Again, I am sorry for your negative experience. I wish you the best of luck moving forward.
