Would move back to Florida Just to have my doctors back – I was a patient at this practice when I was pregnant in 2006- 2007. I absolutely loved the doctors and staff. They were always their to help with any and all concerns that I had. I always felt like the pregnancy and wellbeing of my baby were just as important to them as it was to me. When I went into labor my primary doctor was on call and delivered my baby. Had it not been for her being there I probably would have delivered in the "labor room", but my doctor saw that I was much further than the nurses were saying- rechecked me and abruptly broke my water. about 20 minutes later my beautiful baby girl was born- healthy. I thank all of the doctors within this group. You all do so much everyday to make each and every womans pregnancy a unique and extraordinary experience that they would not get anywhere else.
I am pregnant again, and now live out of state and can not find the same kind, gentle care that I recieved from OB/ GYN ASSOCIATES.
Their are patients that are going to have bad experiences in some way or another.... Don't base your decision on whether or not to become a part of this practice based on anybody elses opinions, Form your own. It will be worth it.
called and left my number 4x no return call waste of time – I left a message with krystal on Thursday a.m. to have the nurse call me . She assured me Luann would return my call after 1:30 that day-No call. i called again Monday a.m. to leave my number (maybe she wrote down the wrong number) she said Lu was on the phone ad I was next in line for a return call and should have a call by 11a.m monday morn. I called Monday 4pm to speak with the office manager Candy, maybe she could answer my questions. She is out but leave a message- its Wednesday No returned calls - I will look for a professional office.
Always have the time for me – I love this practice. I found OB/GYN Assoc. after a miscarriage in another town. I was pregnant and let them know of the previous miscarriage, and they rushed me in immediately upon discovering the pregnancy. I had tons of appointments to help monitor my pregnancies, and early diagnosis of problems. After a second miscarriage, they asked if I would like genetic tests to ensure that it wouldn't be a recurrent problem, which they performed and which reassured me. The doctors always informed me about my options, allowed me to ask any questions I had, and really helped me through rough times... and helped me hold on to my son with the use of supplemental progesterone to strengthen the pregnancy. I believe I wouldn't have had him without the help of Dr. Icely. They will rotate you through visits will all the physicians, just in case your regular OB isn't available the day you deliver, which is nice, and I loved each and every physician there. They also have nurse midwives for those who want a less medical experience. Lastly, they have most lab work done in house, an ultrasound machine in the office, lots of support staff, and accept many different forms of insurance. The only down side is that they are popular, and occassionally I've had to wait well beyond my appointment time to get back to the doctor. However, that is only occassionally. I would and have recommended this practice to friends.
Keep looking! – This office had no concern for patient wellbeing. Although while pregnant they seemed fairly attentive, the second my child was born, I just became a number, or $ perhaps, and not a patient.
- My primary doctor was switched without my consent.
- It took at least a 2-month waiting period for each new appointment even when they contacted me with concerns - such as early stages of cancer!
- Finally, many of the support staff were unhelpful and often rude when they didn't know the answer or had to go out of their way to ask the doctors for advice or consent.
I think this office has become too big for their own good. They have lost the personal connection patients need to have with their caregivers. I would never recommend this office.
