Dr. Hook has no knowledge of the MTHFR mutation and pregnancy. In the event of pregnancy bleeding, she will either tell you it's completely normal or her staff will try to send you off to the ER (on 3 occasions) before letting you see her. In the event of a miscarriage (which happened to me) she will fail to explain to you how long, painful, and dangerous it can be. I am 23 years old and this was my first pregnancy. I was blown off and treated like I should already know things I didn't know.

She helped us so much throughout my entire pregnancy and was especially sensitive to the fact we had been through previous miscarriages. My delivery was insane due to preeclampsia, but she was understanding and supportive throughout labor and during the post partum period. Highly recommend!

Initial pregnancy visits were good. Labor experience was hard but after a c-section there were complications. Dr. Hook had terrible bed side manner, spoke to me very unprofessionally and was not at all respectful or compassionate about the pain I was experiencing. I would never recommend her as a doctor to anyone. No one should be belittled by their doctor, especially after such a hard delivery & recovery. I would rather not be treated than have to endure another visit with her.
