Nice doctor but not my best experience
I'll start by saying Dr. Dott is very experienced, knowledgeable, and pleasant to talk with. But from the handful of prenatal visits I had there, this was my experience:
1) The front desk staff seemed standoffish and at times acted confused about what was going on. Also, they only answer the phones between 9-12 and 1:30-3. With my work schedule, this made calling in for an appointment difficult.
2) During my first appt. the nurse gave me advice on what to do/not do while pregnant. She told me not to do any running b/c the baby might "detach". (???) I mentioned this to Dr. Dott and he waved it off, saying "she's just a nurse". I really hope he had a discussion w/her afterward, because that to me was a major red flag that his staff are not well educated.
3) During my discussions w/Dr. Dott, I felt like there was a lot of important information he didn't offer up unless I asked about it. (I'm glad I did my research beforehand so I knew what to ask!) Also, at my new ob/gyn, I got a ton of pamphlets w/info and pre-natal vitamin samples on my first prenatal visit. I wish Dr.Dott's office would provide something similar, at least for first-time moms.
On the positive side, Dr. Dott is not one to obsess over some of the panic-inducing warnings you hear from other doctors about pregnancy. He's very relaxed about all the "do's and don't's". I'm the kind of person who wants to know about ALL the risks, no matter how small, so it just wasn't a good fit for me.
