Great Experience for our Family (Dad's review), 4/21/2010

Yes,you wait sometimes. they are delivering babies what do you expect? Babies are on their own schedule. I was mad the 1st time I went and had to wait 1.5 hrs with my wife. but well worth it in... the end. Dr Biter and Dr Cap both care and made it a pleasant experience for both my wife and I. Dr. Biter removed fibroids from my wife's uterus about 1 year before we got pregnant. We had been trying for 3 before that. We tried IUI and more. So, I am giving his surgery and professionilism credit for my son being conceived and born. I helped a little as well. We had a tough delivery with a baby that was turned over and did not want to get past that last push. Dr Biter hung in there with us and did everything he could to avoid a C-Section or an episiotomy. As such the baby finally came out and my wife had a small tear. Dr. B even let me finish the delivery by pulling my own son out into the world. Weird but amazing at the same time. Best Doc's around!

Poor service, 3/29/2010

I switch to Dr. Biter under rave recommendations. Office stated they were accepting new patients and my insurance was accepted. Was under their care for over 1 month and never met Dr. Biter himself.... Received shady service from Dr. Cap - not sure if he took my concerns seriously and was unable to answer a 1/2 dozen questions about the facility options for premature babies due to changes in office location soon underway. The day before my 2nd appointment where I was supposedly going to me the infamous Dr. Biter, the office called ot tell me that they no longer accepted my insurance. (They couldn't tell me this when I went through all the trouble of switching in the first place?) I was at the tail end of my 1st trimester and was due for genetic testing at this canceled appointment. Had to find a new doctor in the mean time which took several weeks, meanwhile I headed into my 2nd trimester which made it too late for any 1st trimester testing. Thus the overall accuracy of genetic testing decreases due to not having properly been tested on time. ALL Dr. Biter's Office's FAULT!! Very displeased by the way they handled my case and the lack of attention. I believe they have WAY too many patients, thus the wait is VERY long and they can't give the proper attention each patient needs - including me. I'm glad this happened in the long run b/c I found an OBGYN who can give the care that I need and deserve.

Amazing Practice & Doctor

I had a wonderful experience with this practice. I chose to continue a pregnancy with a chromosome abnormality and I was treated with more care, concern and respect than I thought possible. These doctors, Dr Biter and Dr Cap, are amazing doctors and amazing people. Their nurses are equally as amazing. They saw me weekly and then bi-weekly. There was nothing that could be done for my baby's condition, but they saw me because I needed the reassurrance that my baby was ok each week. I can't say enough good things about this practice.

Surgery done wrong and a doctor who didn't listen

A doctor who didn't listen/ a poor surgery I was looking for a doctor to decide if I needed surgery to remove fibroids and my uterus. Dr. Biter seemed very pleasant and sounded concerned. He scheduled the surgery about 2 weeks after I saw him. I was fine while on pain meds. As soon as I started working and not taking pain meds I was in extreme pain. Something was ripping my ligament apart. Went back to him 6 times. He said nothing was wrong.I researched and found he put a suture in my round ligament, one that is needed to move and caused extreme pain when you move. I sought out many other doctors, finally found one that that performed surgery to remove that suture and voila pain is gone. This doctor just doesn't listen to his patients. I couldn't believe he said I was just emotional from the surgery. This is what happened in a nutshell.

A very scarey experience

We did not have a heartbeat early on in the 1st trimester. Never saw Dr.B, and due to the new doc's lack of confidence and direction, as well as the poor treatment from the desk staff, I asked for my records to change offices. Dr. B called and wanted to meet me that day. He gave me a warm appology and told me all was well and normal and would be ok. Days later I called thinking I was misscarrying. Dr. B told me I was not and that i just needed to relax. The next day, I became dizzy, feverish, and weak, followed by extreme pain and I almost passed out. When I called the office, I could not get a doctor or a nurse for medical advice, instead, a young desk girl told me that most woman wait this out at home. I never got a call from a doc for 2 days. I did not have what "most woman' experience and needed help at that time and did not get it. Bottom line. He didn't want me to leave the practice and was able to do the damage control in the begining, but never called to be a doctor in the end. A very scarey experience.

AWFUL EXPERIENCE!

I went to Dr. Biter anticipating all the great things I had heard from NUMEROUS moms. Over 10 weeks later, I still hadn't met my Dr personally. The other Dr in the office is nice enough but I didn't get the feeling I was important or cared for at any time. I was shuffled around moments before my appts on more than one occasion and even walked out once after a LONG wait and NO communication. The front desk staff is impersonal as well. All of these things combined made this VERY pregnant woman in need of a yet another new Dr at almost 35 weeks! Wish me luck!

Worth The Wait...

Dr. Biter is worth the wait. His OB clients enjoy the fact that he attends his client's births. Well... that means that often times he's delivery someone's baby during office hours. I always just bring a book or magazine and call the time my own. I appreciate that he's not out golfing while I wait, he's making some other mother's dream birth happen. He is a remarkable man and doctor. I can't say enough good things about him.

endless wait

I don't recommend this doctor's office. While on the surface it seems like personal care, the wait was over 2 hours, the receptionists disinterested and impersonal, the two doctors are very different from one another, Dr. Bider has expertise but far too many patients to give the care he's reputed for... and Dr. Cap is a very 'green' doctor who repeatedly gave me information that when I researched, was not only incomplete, it was not applicable to my stage of pregnancy. He even neglected to tell me of a simple test that I could take at 11 weeks to avoid a more invasive test..... I finally left the office after I realized, they simply have too many patients and the 3 hour wait is not worth it.

One Of A Kind

As a lactation consultant and previous OB RN, I had the luxury of working with Dr. Biter before I chose him as my OB/GYN. It was an easy decision to make after watching him interact with the other nurses and his patients. This was my third pregnancy but my first one with Dr. Biter. It could not have been more enjoyable. He really cared for me, my baby, and my family as if we were his own. So much so that when my water broke while I was out with my two young children and my husband was in LA, he drove me to the hospital HIMSELF from his office. He coached me through each painful contraction during the car ride and birth of my son 6 min. after arriving at the hospital. His office staff kept my kids entertained until a friend could come pick them up. I donít know what I would have done in the same situation with your typical doctor. The wait for Dr. Biterís appointments can be long sometimes but they are well worth it and his office staff always goes out of their way to make it comfortable. Bring a good book and relax knowing you are getting one of a kind, excellent care.

Great Person

Dr. Biter is a great person and is very caring.. And thats what everyone is saying.. but I just don't know about his knowledge as a doctor. Everyone who writes a good review is seeing him for pregnancy and talks about how caring he is. Which he is but he is way too busy and when it comes to actual serious problems with women's health, I just dont know about him. I just wish he would slow down and stop taking on so many patients...

Awesome Doctor!

Dr. Biter is the best doctor I have ever had! He is so genuine, caring and just so sweet, yes its true that he always running late! But it is worth it! I just had my baby a month ago, but I do intend to keep him as my regular ob/gyn!

excellent ob & GYN doctor

As a gyn patient, I was able to receive excellent care at Dr. Biter's practice. He performed laparoscopic surgery on me in January 2009 and was the most supporting and caring doctor that I have ever seen. Although it was a difficult time for me, he made me feel safe, important, and well-cared for during the whole process. He has a wonderful bedside manner that makes you feel like he truly cares about you, like his own family, and his staff always makes me feel welcome. I would not go to any other gynecology doctor for my OB/GYN needs. During all my visits at Dr. Biter's office, I have never been seen by or asked to see a male nurse practitioner. I highly recommend him to all ob & GYN patients.

More for OB than Gyn

I have gone to Dr. Biter for the past three years for yearly exams. The first year he spent a lot of time with me and seemed caring but always behind schedule. I asked for the first appointment for the next exam but still had about an hour wait. This past year, the staff talked me into seeing his assistant, a male nurse practitioner. This guy was totally inept and the exam took forever, was painful and I left in tears. They left out a test that I needed and now I am trying to get retested. It's been weeks since I talked to someone there who never returned my call. Next year I will go elsewhere. I believe the practice is more focussed on OB than gyn appointments, especially if you need menopause support.

Wonderful

Best doctor ever. Yes he typically does run a little behind schedual but its worth it because when it is your turn he'll sit there with you and address all your concerns and answers your questions (which I would guess is what makes him run a little late) plus he arranged for different speakers to come in and run different classes for his patients who are expecting. I was extremely happy to have him deliver my little man and recommended him to a friend for her pregnancy as well.

He sets the bar for all other doctors

Dr. Biter has completely changed my feeling about doctors. He made me feel like a whole person, not just a case to see quickly and move on. He really takes the time to get to know his patients and hear their concerns. This doctor understands the vulnerable position of being a patient and demonstrates sincere compassion. He is a rare find. He is absolutely worth any waiting time or rescheduling. I wish he would become an educator for other doctors to teach them the importance of compassion in addition to competence.
