If you want someone who will listen intently and sympathetically, would definitely not recommend. Been going for 4 years for annuals and never been a fan. Rushes appts, does not listen, at times abrasive and condescending, and is walking out the door while still asking questions. I could NEVER imagine dealing with this woman during a pregnancy and especially during labor when you are most vulnerable and need a caring, understanding doctor most. She seriously is the worst doctor I've encountered
Dr. Ekman was my GYN for 3 years, and eventually my OB during a pregnancy with some complications (multiples) and she was absolutely wonderful during it all! She is not at all judgemental and will explain things in a very simple, easy-to-understand manner. She is very blunt, which my husband was sometimes overwhelmed by, but I found it to be so refreshing- I like to have as much info as possible. I moved out of state for work and haven't been able to find another OB that I trust quite like her.

My GP sent me to Dr Ekman with CLEAR signs of Cervical Cancer. She ignored the notes my GP sent & had to go "back in" to look for what my doctor thought she saw during my pap. Ekman was so arrogant - truly has a God complex. She told me that I "totally" didn't have cancer. 6 months later a REAL doctor could SEE the golf-ball sized tumor that had grown into my vagina with her naked eye. Sadly, two other friends had similar experiences with Ekman. I would urge anyone to avoid her AT ALL COSTS.

I would strongly recommend NOT having Dr. Ekman as your Ob. We found her to be very arrogant and condescending. I was suffering from post partum cardiomyopathy. Dr. Ekman misdiagnosed me. After weeks of agony, I finally received an accurate diagnosis from Dr. Modi at Parma hospital. Dr. Ekman didn't take the time or effort to LISTEN when I needed her most.
