This doctor performed a Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy on me. Ovaries and cervix were left in place. 3 to 4 incisions is protocol for this procedure but Ralsten only made 1. Right ureter was severed and he didn't realize. A week later after calls to his office and trips to ER, his mistake was revealed. I had to have open surgery to correct his mistake and luckily I still have my kidney. Had to have a catheter & bag for 3 weeks. He told me I had a good excuse to buy a new purse...

Horrible experience - words can't even begin to describe how I feel about this physician. It is because of his lackadaisicalness my child was stillborn. He was very apathetic and not very responsive to the needs of my case. I could go on but this is the basis of my issues with him. Upon going for postpartum check up the assistant ask me "where is your bundle of joy"? Needless to say apparently she didn't take a moment to glance at my chart nor did the physician inform what my situation was.

I changed to Dr. Ralsten after my last GYN, a female rolled her eyes at me & said in a smart tone You don't have ovarian cancer. You're too young. I was flabbergasted. I work in healthcare. I know better & my late sister-in-law was diagnosed in her early 30s, on both ovaries, stage 3 & Stage 4. I heard Dr. Ralsten was awesome. Its TRUE! He's energetic, empathetic, he listens and fights for you when the insurance co. wants to suffer thru unnecessary, expensive tests to avoid paying for surgery

While Dr. Ralsten was just fine for routine things like yearly pap-he knows NOTHING ABOUT MENOPAUSE. I had a full hysterectomy and after having a hormone drop with basically a breakdown he simply told me that there are no true levels to hormone replacement therapy and I did not even have to use estrogen. Doing some research, finding a female dr. and getting a correct dose of estrogen I am FINALLy feeling better--but it took 2 years for me to figure this out. Don't see him for menopause!!
