Mullin Linda Dr

Posted on: 3/17/2008

I feel better!

Dr. Mullin helped me a lot in my last pregnancy and I've been seeing her since. well, once since b/c she's not one of those chiros that says "see me every week" indefinitely. Very qualified, friendly & approachable. She takes the time to explain what needs to be done.

pleased as punch

Love her! I was referred to dr. maxey by another dr b/c she is understanding of the needs of breastfeeding mothers who have to take medications. meaning... she won't arbitrarily tell a mom to breastfeed just b/c the mom takes medications. Dr. Maxey takes the time to ask questions baout what's going on in our lives. She approaches the kids with respect and humor and doesn't ignore the child that's not being seen that day. Most importantly she doesn't dismiss my views when they differ from hers and she will defend her position w/o making me feel like an idiot. Her partners, Dr. Simon and Dr. Chugani are wonderful as well. The front office staff could use a few manners, but other than that we are very pleased with Dr. Maxey.

wonderful dr. wonderful staff!

Dr. Hochberg and his staff are wonderful. I've always been anxious of dentists for years and I was immediately comfortable. He's responsive, aproachable and upbeat. My sister teaches behavioral science at a dental school (the "how to communicate"and "how to not get sued" classes); she says his response to my anxiety is textbook perfect. His staff is the best! and they pay for parking.

Good Gyn; great surgeon; ob? meh.

I saw him for nearly 7 years. Great gyn. but OB? notsomuch. He manipulated me into an induction I later learned I didn't need. There was no discussion of the fact that inductions lead to a 50% higher risk of section. He rushed the induction w/active mgmt when he PROMISED to use low level mgmt of labor. started pressuing for c/s after only ~1hr of pushing; my DH kept asking for more time since the baby was never in any distress. 1.5hrs later, Baby was crowning when he said I needed a c/s; no distress; just a tired mom and an impatient dr. He finally got me to consent to a section by saying he could use forceps or vacume but thought the section would be safer. There was no discussion of the risks of c/s to me, to future fertility, to baby from being pulled back out of the birth canal. I stayed w/the practice for my second pregnancy b/c the other practices I looked at weren't much better. I chose the devil I knew. Before I told him I was choosing not to VBAC, he'd already started to pull the "big baby" card on me. My 2nd baby was only ~7.5 lbs. my first was 9.5lbs. My 3rd baby w/diff dr: **VBA2C** 10.5 lbs and bigger head w/an intact perimeum! (It pays to be a patient dr.) All in all Dr. Gumer is really nice, I'll probably see him again when I'm done having kids, but if you don't want to be cut, stay away from NAWS or go to ICAN and be educated w/facts. avg wait for appt over 7yrs: over 1hr; billing practices questionable at worst, incompetent at best.
