I will drive to Atlanta for a better doctor!

The wait time is long, the nurses and doctors give bad advise, and you feel like a number. With my first pregnancy, I had told them that I had a blood disorder (which can cause blood clots and miscarriages) and they did not know anything about this. I began bleeding at 10 weeks and I scheduled an appointment (which I thought they would give me an ultra sound to check) but they said that bleeding is common and even though I waited an hour to see them, they would not give me an ultra sound! After an hour of waiting they said to come back at 12 weeks. I went home and the bleeding was driving me crazy, so I called and demanded them to give me an ultra sound. Sure enough, I had a miscarriage at 10 weeks, and they told me to go home and have the miscarriage at home. I ended up in the emergency room because of the blood loss (it was scary!) and the fact that they did not give me the D&C immediately. When I told them about this, they did not say anything. I tried to tell them again that I had a blood disorder, and went to see another doctor there. She said that the blood disorder was not that bad and that "some doctors would say to put me on blood thinners or to see a high risk doctor, but she would say no." With this bad advise, I had another miscarriage. I then had advise from a friend who had the same blood disorder (and 4 miscarriages) to go to a Reproductive Endocronologist. Now I am pregnant and everything is going well, thanks to the Lovenox and extra care I needed.

Wonderful Experience!

It took a while to search for good doctors who would help with my miscarriages, someone gave me a recommendation to go to RBA. I am SO glad that I came here. They have given me the care and testing that I needed to help diagnose why I was having miscarriages, and also have been supportive. After only three months of going to RBA, I am now pregnant and thanks to the doctors recognizing that I need to take Lovenox to prevent miscarriages and blood clots, everything is going well. Dr. Mitchell-Leef is excellent and extremely knowledgable, and the nurses on staff are very quick at responding and professional. I have been very nervous with this pregnancy, and they are understanding about that as well. I wish I had come here sooner, but I am just glad that I did! It has been a very positive experience, and I wish all doctors and nurses gave you the care and knowledge that RBA does.
