Patient Comments (1)
Palo Alto, CA |
Did not recommend C-Sectional although I had back injury, and the vaginal delivery further damaged my back. Further, I had complications during pregnancy, he did try so hard to find out, and almost drew all blood I have, and got consultations from all Stanford specialities, but never discovered the cause. It was discovered later by a young Dr. overseas. In general my experience with Stanford and LPCH is - sadly - very poor.
