While I thought the Dr's. were great, we had to wait for over 45 minutes for appointments that were scheduled 2 weeks to a month in advance. I understand that Dr's have emergencies and things come up but if you are 45 minutes late on a consistent basis there is a fundamental issue with their operation.
Just the best doctor anyone with a high risk pregnancy could ask for. I had a very complicated pregnancy with a lot of stress and he absolutely made me feel at ease. His ultrasound tech is the best, too. As his his partner/wife. Couldn't ask for a better experience. Oh, but be prepared to wait. Never had a doctor been more thorough, but you will wait. A looooong time.
