Dr. Vanoyan is one of the better doctors I have ever seen. She puts your health first (hence the comments about bedside manner). She is intelligent and gifted and once the "crisis" or health issue has passed... she is a fabulous women.

Dr. Vanoyan has been my OBGYN for over 10 years. I was just looking up her fax number on Google and came across this review and was shocked. She has always been spectacular. I could care less about bed-side manners. I had difficulty with a pregnancy and it ended in a loss. Mimi was there for my husband and me every step of the way. And I now have two beautiful healthy children, thanks in part to her expert care.

I ws denied service b/ we had an unassisted homebirth (our baby cm quickly). Its 1 thing to take a stand on an issue (homebirth) bt if your argument is based on the health & safety of the mother & child then refusal to offer care goes counter to those claims for concern. I went to them with all of my records- tests,check ups from previous OB/Gyn.I am hving such a hard time finding a good OB in Atlanta. It is illogical to assume that a person could not find themselves in need of a new doctor at any stage pre or post pregnancy. (I was told that the doc. did not feel comfortable giving me a check up since she did not care for me during my pregnancy.) In addition I was informed that home births are not safe; (which if you believe that should be more reason see HB pateints) yet I would be surprised if the doc. knows much about or has ever witnessed a homebirth (planned ones that is, not necessarily like mine). Thanks to the front desk and hospital administration for being pleasant & helpful. ps. no one bothered to ask which state I gave birth in! It has been over 2wks now and the hospital still has not refunded my $30 even though I was told I would get it in less than a week. When I called a very unpleasant woman tells me it will be 2 to 3 weeks from today because it was not put through. No apology offered!

Think long and hard before settleing for this doc. Bedside manner doesn't really matter--what matters is the level of expertise in a crisis. Expertise certainly appeared to be lacking at the time of need.

Dr. Vanoyan performed surgery on me 5 years ago. The surgery was invasive, but she explained everything to me and it all went as well as it possibly could. She is my regular OB-GYN now, and is wonderful every year when I go to see her. She is very professional and very thorough, and seems to take interest in her patients. I have referred 4 friends to her who all have had the same experience.

Dr. Mimi Vanoyan has no bedside manners, is abrupt, and refuses to listen to her patients. She hands out material to her patients without reading it herself- and than tells the patient she doesn't agree with it. (she should read the material first, and find material that compliments her philosophy). She is not an advocate for the patient, but rather herself. she is against VBAC, does testing without consulting her patient, and does not look over the patient's records properly. Her nurse is just as bad. It is utter laziness and arrogance. If you are looking for a thoughtful and thorough OBGYN with bedside manners she is not the one to choose.
