What People Say About Albert Runzel, CNM

I was diagnosed gestational diabetic and couldn't make the first appointment regarding nutrition due to working. He told me "so you would rather your baby die then miss a day of work?" I was extremely taken aback when he said that. My sugar levels were fine throughout my entire pregnancy. He was extremely crass and has very little bedside manner. Would never recommend him as any kind of doctor to anyone.

During the first appointment he let his personal beliefs get in the way of providing quality care after we told him we were interested in abortion if anything shows up wrong with the baby. I stuck it out with him despite his poor bedside manner. I thought maybe I was being too sensitive. I am in my third trimester currently, and he told me I should eat 1600 calories a day. Wrong. Also tried to tell me I was being "frivolous" with my health because I refused birth control after I have the baby.

Very judgmental. Wanted to put me on a very restrictive diet what I was within the recommended weight gain. Did not listen to my concerns. I do not trust that he wants what is best for me and my baby and only what is taught in medical school.
