This 'Doctor' schedules unnecessary c-sections for mothers and their 1st births! He works in conjunction w/adoption agencies. He allows mothers to sign a consent allowing prospective adoptive parents to take baby from the hospital HOURS after a c-section while she is ON PAIN MEDS. The mother never sees him again I see some of the other reviews that he doesn't understand women, & this proves it!! I would highly recommend that any pregnant mom in crisis steer clear of this dangerous 'Dr'!

Dr. Cole is very straight forward and honest. He is over qualified for his job.

After leaving my appointments with Dr. Cole I consistently felt frustrated. Dr. Cole does not seem to understand women and does not understand that obstetrics is more than just medicine, it involves hopes and dreams, worries and concerns. Dr. Cole did not listen to my concerns and actually made me feel like there was something wrong with me when I would ask questions or voice my anxieties. For women who have had previous losses and need compassion and understanding, Dr. Cole is not for you.
