in Colo, IA |
I can't imagine the delivery of my son with anyone else. I was lucky enough to see Dr. Mintzer for every appointment and my delivery. Since it was a scheduled C-Section it was helpful to know he was there throughout the whole process and knew my records. He answered any and all questions I had and treated me as a unique person not a run of the mill. He really does go out of his way for his patients. I look forward to him delivering our second in the near future (hopefully).

Dr Mintzer provided excellent care when I was pregnant with my daughter. I drive an hour and a half to come to his office. He listens, explains everything in detail, and makes sure that all your questions are answered. I moved to Washington state last year and recently delivered my second baby. The care i received here does not compare to what inreceived under Dr Mintzers care.

Takes his time, treats patients with respect, knowledgeable, and really works with his patients.
Urbandale, IA |
He is the best OB in Des Moines and I have been to so many. He is respectful and kind. Open to listening and respecting the patients wishes. He is really smart and is knowledgeable without being full of himself. He is not overly cautious but knows when to move fast. The first time I met him he spent 45 minutes with me. Who does that??? I do not care for some of the other doctors in his group. He doesn't special clients, so you get whomever is on call.
