The Thinking Woman's OB
Dr Tate was my OB for the birth of my third child. Personal service is the hallmark of his care.
You will be a good fit for Dr Tate if the outcome of your birth is more important to you than the aesthetics of a waiting room. If a skilled careprovider trained in the true art of Obstetrics, is more important to you than a doctor who will rush to a cesarean because he doesn't have any other skills. If you want your doctor to have your best interests at heart instead of medical malpractice guiding each of his decisions, Dr Tate is your man. Bottom line, consider if the bling of an office or wait time is more important to you than knowing that you are with a doctor who isn't going to go on vacation when you are due, isn't going to share call with another OB whom you have never met, and who knows how to do more than just a cesarean.
Dr Tate knew me by name. He knew my birth history by memory. Not once did he have to glance at my chart to remind himself of who I was. And when my baby was born via VBAC into his capable hands, he was excited and happy for me as a friend, not just a doctor.
