What People Say About Dr. Lauren Dungy-Poythress, MD
Reply
We have thanked God many times for putting this woman in our path. Back in 2012, I was a 40-yr woman with a 2 vessel chord pregnancy. My OBGYN wanted to induce at 24 weeks because the scans showed that our son had stopped growing. We received a 2nd opinion with a similar recommendation to induce at 24 weeks. We were devastated but refused to accept the 2nd opinion. Our doctor referred us to Dr. Dungy-Poythress for a 3rd opinion, and she did her own scans and analysis and assured us that our son was indeed still growing in the womb. Her opinion gave us the courage to progress with the pregnancy and not induce early. Had we not met her and induced at 24 weeks, our son would likely have been born blind, deaf and crippled. Instead, today our son is a happy, healthy 6 1/2 year old boy who is able to enjoy life to the fullest. I realize that not everyone will be able to have the same outcome as we did, but you can be assured that you will be in the best hands with her as your doctor.
