She likes to stereotype and restricts your diet. My son was full term and underweight because she told me that I could not eat any carbs or gain weight during my pregnancy. I was 135 lbs pre-pregnancy and at 8.5 months, I was only 145lbs. Each checkup, she would tell me that I could only gain 1lb. This was my first pregnancy and I followed her advice. My son stopped moving in utero and then she sent me to get induced. She never showed her face at the hospital during or after my delivery.
I've been a patient for 10 years. She delivered my healthy 9 year old son. I've kept her as my primary GYN ever since. Highly recommended. My mom is even a patient of hers now after seeing how will she cared for me throughout my pregnancy and labor & delivery.
