Some good, some bad. This is my first pregnancy and experience with Women First. I found out that I was having twins, so I have been spending extra time here and have seen a few different doctors. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Miller. She is very personable, seems to genuinely care, and takes her time. I also had Dr. Clark. I felt a bit rushed with her. My only real complaint so far has been with the nurse practitioner Shannon Bretz. She didn't come into the exam room prepared, it seemed very difficult for her to even stay awake and like she couldn't get out of there fast enough. When scheduling my next appointments, I will definitely not be seeing her again.
Dr. Dutton is the greatest Dr. ever!!!!. I have had two miscarriages and lost one of my twin boys this past year, i also delivered my son and i have went to women's first through all of this, i have always been treated with kindness and respect. of course i have had a few bad visits here and there, the only complaint i have is when you call in with questions the triage nurses can be very uncaring, but all in all my experience with them has been great. i have seen all the nurse practioners, all the ultrasound techs and most of the dr.'s, i have to say i liked them all, but i can honestly say that dr. dutton is the best she was not only my dr but also my rock during one of the hardest times of my life especially during my last pregnancy she definintly went above and beyond for me, she is one of the most caring people i have ever met! i will continue to go to womens first, i couldn't imagine anyone else besides dr dutton delivering my son or any future children.
Just OK. I have had 2 babies at Women First and liked most of the revolving door of doctors that I saw. However, I agree with the earlier comment regarding "bad news." My 3rd pregnancy ended in a miscarriage - which I learned from the ultrasound tech. I then had to spend 20 minutes sitting in the main waiting room with all of the obviously pregnant women trying not to weep TOO loudly. It was torture. Then, when the medical assistant finally called me back, she actually asked what brought me in. I had to inform her that the fetus had no heartbeat. Shouldn't they have a system for communicating these things? You know, like maybe a chart?? I will say that when I did finally get to see a doctor, it was Dr. Price and I really thought her bedside manner was great.
Dr. Dutton. Dr. Dutton is absolutely wonderful. She is the first doctor I have ever been to who truly made me feel 100% comfortable. I sent her a thank you note after my first appointment with her. I can't imagine ever wanting to go to anyone else.
unexpected events in pregnancy. I agree that Dr. Dutton is wonderful and really has extrordinary skills not only in medical terms but she really knows how to listen. I have the same opinion of Dr. Miller. Unfortunately, if you have anything other than a noneventful pregnancy, I feel as though this is not the place to be. For those of us who lose our babies/pregnancies in any stage it is extremely difficult. The office doesn't have anywhere for you to go after you recieve the bad news (usually via ultrasound-then you have to go wait to see the Dr.)other than out in the waiting room with all the other pregnant women and babies!! I also felt that I was forced to see the nurse practitioners often and any "issues" I had were really never answered. One out of the 4 Dr's I saw did not support choices I made in what I felt to be the best interest of the baby and did not address my concerns, because it seems as though she has no concerns in pregnany. A good point is that the ultrasound equiptment and lab are right in the office. The bad is that if you need tests run they are sent out and can take weeks for the results. Overall, as a gynecology office I think it is great, but as an OB I just didn't feel they were equipt to handle patients that need emotional support after or during a difficult pregnancy.
Dr. Dutton in the Greatest!. I would not want to have a baby with any other group. I saw several of the Drs and they were all wonderful. However, Stephanie Dutton is the best by far.
