Long Beach, CA |
Not only does this horrendous woman have horrible bedside manner, she was ready to perform a risky procedure when I lost a twin without fully explaining to me the potential complications to the healthy baby. Then she ended up being the doc on call when I delivered my (healthy) baby and when I desperately asked for my OB to be called in for the delivery she flipped out on ME, while I was in active natural (no meds) labor. She's a horrible human being.
Dr. Bush is one of the most professional and skilled physicians I have ever been a patient of. She never rushed me through any of my procedures, answered all of my questions, even joked a bit to lighten the dour mood of the occasion. I highly recommend her. I drive almost 40 miles each way to see her because she is that good.

Dr. Bush was insensitive to our challenging situation and did not have good bedside manner. She lacks empathy and patience and tried to insert humor when she felt insecure about our conversation. She took more than two hours to get to the hospital after my water broke prematurely. She was also the doctor on call and lives close to the hospital so I did not feel this was good response time. I would recommend any other doctor at this practice who are all excellent.
