Office staff is horrible, 7/30/2015

It is so difficult to make an appointment and they are not willing to help you out. Dr. Pitcher herself is fine, but not good enough to make me willing to stick around and deal with her office staff.


Best Doctor EVER!!, 11/05/2011

I first saw Dr. Pitcher 19 years ago. She is an AMAZING person and doctor. She delivered my baby, 2 years ago and I gained way too much weight (over 75 lbs.) The comments about her not liking... overweight people are foolish. She did explain the risks of gaining extra weight. Her focus was on my health, as it should be as my doctor. I consider her family and dread the day she is no longer practicing. I am SURE I will not be able to find a better doctor or person to trust.

Knowledgeable, compassionate, straight shooter

I have been a patient of Dr Pitcher for 20 years. She delivered my daughter in 1995. She told me exactly what to do when I was told I would need a breast biopsy and made arrangements with the best surgeon in the world. She gave me straightforward advice on having a needed hysterectomy for a tumor and did extra surgery so as not to disturb my reconstruction I had for the double mastectomy. She shoots straight, she doesn't mince words and she is not judgmental She is definitely caring & compassionate, but if you need someone to stroke your head and hold your hand for hours, that's what you have family and friends for. I am an RN...I know a good doctor when I see one. Dr Pitcher is one of the best.

BEST OB/GYN

Doctor Pitcher delivered my baby back in February and I'm wanting to do it all over again with her by my side. She is very soft spoken but also up-front on all your needs and will fight for you when it comes to your insurance and job. You are her concern.... she had me admitted at 10am, delivered at 10:55pm with her and she left around 12:30 and was back in my room at 6:00am. She is amazing!!

LOVE Dr. Pitcher

We had our baby a year ago, with Dr. Pitcher. We absolutely loved her. I don't understand the negative comments about her being cold or not understanding... I had the opposite experience with her. It did take a while to get into her office sometimes, but that's most likely because she is needed for emergency situations or moms in labor. She has a wonderful bedside manner, in my opinion. I gained 26 lbs and didn't hear a peep out of her (even in the month where I gained almost 10 all at once!) When she delivered my baby, she was genuinely happy and excited for us. She also let us have practically the whole family in the delivery room. Overall a great experience, and I will be keeping her as my doctor for future pregnancies!

Dr. Pitcher saved my baby's life...

Dr. Pitcher is not your run of the mill ob/gyn. I switched to her at 20 wks during my first pregnancy. She is soft spoken yet firm. She knows what she's doing, and I had the feeling from the first appt with her that she'd be strong in a crisis situation. I was right. At 6 cm, she was checking on my progress & noticed the baby's heartrate dropping drastically as it descended. It got to a true emergency situation. She calmly told me I needed a csection. I planned on a natural birth so I also needed general anesthesia. It was very traumatizing for me, but it wasn't about me. It's about the baby. She was calm & controlled through the entire situation. Withmy next child I talked to her about vbac. She spent close to30 min with me, giving facts & figures so I could make an educated decision. Again it came down to what was best for the baby. I chose csection. She was supportive on whatever I chose. I smile when I read women whining about Dr. P riding them for weight gain or not having a good bedside manner. I guess it's s matter of perspective. If you're looking for a doctor to coddle you and yes you, then you won't like her. She is a professional. Your health is her job...not your ego. When I had a miscarriage she was very factual and direct. That's how she is. She offered factual guidance and a kind voice. She knows her stuff and there's not another doctor I trust more.

I agree with the earlier reviewer....yes, Dr. Pitcher appears to have issue with patients who are overweight. She also has a very cold bedside manner. I was scheduled for a C-Section on a Monday, but developed major contractions on a Sunday. When Dr. P was contacted, she refused to come into the hospital before Monday. The nurses in the maternity ward were all whispering and shaking heads about my situation. I told the head of the Wellstar Maternity (in all my pain and agony) that heads would roll beginning with my calls to the Board of Trustees and following ups with CNN News if she didn't get her butt in there and do what she took an oath to do. How dare she pick and choose when a high risk patient should have a csection when a baby was practically crowning. Needless to say, she arrived. The followup was horrible. I was sent home without antibiotics and then a phone call at home with er uh I uh we forgot....you need antibiotics. Stitching came apart and I had a horrible open wound. She demanded that I drive in everyday to get wound treatment from her. Can you imagine that? I stupidly followed her orders, only to end up back in the hospital with a major wound opening and needing professional wound care at home and not requiring driving in to her cold office. The nurses are friendly. The office staff leaves something to be desired. The woman that does the ultrasound is great. As for Dr. P., she should look into heart transplants.

Experience has gone downhill

I have seen Dr. Pitcher for the last 8 years, and have been 100% pleased until recently. It seems that in the last year or two she has started overbooking her schedule. Not only do I end up waiting 2-3 hours for a rushed, 15 minute visit, but I've had the same appointment moved 3 times (one time less than 40 minutes before I was supposed to be there). She's a strong proponent of medical intervention, so she might not be the doc for you if you want a homey, natural birth experience or VBAC. She makes every attempt to deliver her own patients (no bouncing around between docs unless you want to). I like her, I just wish she would have stayed less busy and rushed.

Best OB/GYN in Georgia

I've been going to Dr. Pitcher for 15 years. I'm very overweight and at the ages of 37 AND 39, had 2 healthy, beautiful children. My husband and I have been blessed to have Dr. Pitcher with us through both pregnancies and she never mentioned my weight at all. She was supportive, compassionate and always takes the time to talk with me. I have referred her to numerous people and am very proud to say that over 35 of my friends/relatives use her now and thank me for finding her. She is a blessing.

not kind and can't deal with emotional people

I had to go to the ER on October 31 because of bleeding. I found out that day I was pregnant, and after having spent some time in the ER and having had tests and examinations done, Pitcher was called in to evaluate me and determine the cause of my bleeding. I was already feeling emotionally drained by this time and I hate needles and being examined so many times, so when she asked me to repeat my story, I felt that I would cry and I hate crying in front of others, so I told her that I had already described what my problem was to several people. She got extremely impatient at that point and informed me that she was missing sharing Halloween with her kids because she was called to come in -as if she were doing me a favor and that I should be grateful. Anyway, the pregnancy ended up being an ectopic which we found on Monday and when she informed me of this and the fact that I could die and that I needed emergency surgery, I became upset and distraught. Pitcher was not the least bit compassionate or understanding. She performed the surgery later that day and a week later on the day of my follow up she gave me a letter that she and no doctor that she shares a practice with would no longer see me after 2 weeks -only for a follow up. I was not examined and no urine test was done even though they asked for a sample. IN my opinion she is very arrogant and very stubborn. She thinks she is so smart and proudly told me to check out her reviews on Kudzu. Well, here's MY experience.

Pregnant?

If you are pregnant and gain over 15 to 20 lbs then don't plan on seeing Dr. Pitcher. She has major issues with weight. I only gained 38lbs and lost it all in 6 weeks, and the few times I saw Dr. Pitcher she harped on my weight gain the entire time. I have heard she if famous for this. So just beware.

Great doctor!

I have been going to Dr. Pitcher for 3 years now and love her. She is very nice and easy to talk to. Dr. Pitcher makes you feel comfortable. She takes her time to sit and listen to you and gives thorough answers. I would recommend her to anyone.

OUTSTANDING DOCTOR

There are no words to describe how wonderful Dr. Pitcher is! I've never seen a more caring and compassionate doctor, not to mention her absolute brilliance! She is not only well respected by her patients, but also by many members of the medical world. She delivered our child 4 years ago and has helped us through two very difficult miscarriages (we are older and have several health issues that cause any pregnancy to be "high risk"). We trust Dr. Pitcher completely!!! .... A husband of a patient....
