I know you're looking for a female doctor, but I never found a female doctor who I liked enough to recommend.

The doctor who delivered my youngest daughter was great. His name is Dr. David Dooley and I think now he's with the Institute of Women's Health in Live Oak. I had a high risk pregnancy with a repeat c-section. He was great about treating me like a person and not a science project (didn't send me for a million unnecessary tests). He was also great about notes for work when it became uncomfortable for me to lift really heavy things or to stand all day. The c-section he did went really well, the incision was only about five inches and I was pain-free by the end of the fourth day.

I had my youngest at Methodist hospital in the medical center, and I really can't recommend it. It was dirty, they didn't feed me anything except jello and broth the entire time I was there (I had to order pizza haha) I had to share a bathroom with a teenager who left blood all over the place, then I had to pay an extra $145 a night to have a private room so I could breastfeed without the teenager's 20 potential baby-daddies checking out my breasts while they were visiting her, the nurses wouldn't listen when I had a problem...I had to go find them when it was an hour later than I should have had my meds and then they lectured me about not understanding that they were busy.

Southwest General Hospital is rated in the top 5% in the nation for high risk pregnancies. I would check them out.

Dr. Kimberly Crittenden and Methodist Metropolitan (Women's Pavilion) took great care of us during our pregnancy. Dr. Patrick S. Ramsey, on the NW side, was our specialist since it was also a high risk pregnancy. Expecting twins, being in our mid-30s, and additional complications all contributed to the high risk factor. Totally satisfied with both doctors.

The nurses in the NICU were hit and miss when it came to quality but we were judging them by their demeanor. Were they passionate or did it just seem like a job to them? We frowned a few times when we felt our babies had not been changed fast enough but overall we were reassured by the few nurses who seemed especially caring and communicative when it came to our concerns.

I to am in my mid 30's only exspecting one baby though. That i know of lol! Thank you so much to everyone who has responded to my post. Any one else has any info i would alppriciate the more the better. I just want a dr. an a hospital who does the out of the ordinary (CARES about there patients not as a number but as people). An i would love a good hospital all the ones i reserch are down town. Because if something goes wrong ill have to go there anyway. So would rather just be there in the first place. Rather than have to move or have my baby moved. The hospitals i have looked at all have someone they did wrong. This is my last child an i want an need this to be the best exsperiance it can be. For me an my family.

Ok im getting kind of desperate hear. I cant seem to find a good female obgyn to takecare of me an my baby. All the females dr. i have reserched have reviews that tell me there just as bad as the one i have seen already. Dr. Gee is the worst dr. i have evere seen. I wouldn't trust her to deliver a puppy much less my baby. Im not trying to be ugly but i can't leave my baby's health an my own in her hands. Is there not a good female dr. out there? Ok i really am not comfortable haveing a male dr. I had one befor who deliverd three of my children. But retierd. Im not wanting to go and have to have another male. But if there arent any good female's. Then does anyone know a good male dr. A dr. period who is good. An a good hospital who will take good care of us an not just rush us out the door. Someone PLEASE HELP!!!!! Theres got to be someone good out there somewhere!!

You need to remember that people are more likely to leave a review if they want to complain...so those doctors probably have tons of happy patients but it's the unhappy ones whose reviews you end up seeing.

About hospitals, University is the best hospital to be at if you're worried about something going wrong. It's been ten years since I had a baby there so I don't know if it's changed, but when I had my first, the hospital was super-clean, the private room was standard, and the nurses all took time to explain things to me and seemed like they cared. Some of the NICU nurses were a little abrupt, but they took excellent care of my daughter and wouldn't let us take her home until we had learned infant cpr, had brought in her carseat to make sure she could breathe in it, and until they made sure we knew how to feed and care for her...which was really helpful because she was my first child and I didn't have any experience with babies.

If you are willing to consider a male Dr., I still would recommend Dr. Dooley, like I mentioned above. He took really good care of me and did a very neat and tidy job on the c-section.

I know what you mean about not wanting another male doctor having a look down there...but in my experience the male doctors are a lot more careful with sensitive parts than the female doctors are. I've had pelvic exams by female doctors that left me sore for days.

Try Dr. Bhatia. Solo practitioner who takes more time with her patients than most of the docs in the big groups. Been in practice a long time and delivers at metropolitan methodist which is located downtown.

Obgyn San Antonio | Ob Gyn Doctors in San Antonio Texas | Neera Bhatia OBGYN MD

Good luck

I also second Dr. Crittenden. She is not my Dr. but my sister's dr. I was in the delivey room with my sister and found her to be very nice, caring and professional. I thinking of seeing her once my dr. (Jose Trevinio who is also another amzing dr.) retires. As for the hospital I had a very good experince at Metro downtown. I had two c-sections there and I had no complaints with my stay except for the fact that when I delivered in 07 you were required to pay for a private room. When my sister delivered last year her room was free. They now offer free private rooms for everyone. Kinda makes me wish I would have waited to have my third one LOL!
