Leaving the group...well let's just say it was a good decision. Her new group of docs she is working with are wonderful. I think she is a wonderful doc and has been recognized as one of the best in SA.

I'm going to be calling these tomorrow to try to get a price estimate, but was wanting to get feedback from people that have been to any of these for this reason. I've looked up ratings, but that doesn't really go into actual people's experiences. Drive wise, all 3 of these are about the same distance, so I'm basically looking at price and quality of care.
Our daughter was born at St. Lukes almost 6 years ago. They were very professional and the room was large and comfortable. I can't really tell you the price as my insurance pretty much paid for everything, and I paid in advance through my wifes doctor (Institute for Womens health, another great place with excellent care worth any price!)

Yes, she is a wonderful doc. So are some of the others in the group that she left. She is not currently with a group but with another doc that left Seven Oaks just before her. Her motivations for leaving were purely financial. Not that this is bad in any way, just giving her true motivation. She will do well in any case.

Oh I agree. I personally had some bad experiences with 1 of the other docs there. So that is where my happiness comes from!

Dr. Heck was my doctor with Seven Oaks. It was the best experience ever!!! My first was with another doctor with her own practice and was very disappointing so it was such a pleasure to have a doctor that really cared. I just wish she could be my family doctor!

Hi,
I am relatively new to SA, as well. I happen to be a nurse in L&D at St. Lukes. Our rooms are large and you get a private room for post-partum care. All though I have never actually looked into it, I have heard that the post-partum rooms at Methodist are semi-private. Can anyone confirm that?
Anyway, we do give good care at St. Lukes and we have a very limited amount of "agency" nurses. The ones we do have have been there a long time, and several have actually hired on as permanent employees. We have quite a few nurses who have worked all around the city and have ended up with us because they enjoy the environment. It seems as though all of the delivering facilities in this city are vey large, but St. Lukes is on the smaller end of that. The nurse-patient ratio is very acceptable... usually 1:1 or 1:2. If it was high, I wouldn't work there for my own liability's sake. Anyway, I don't have a means of comparison, but I find St. Lukes to be a hospital that delivers good care. Ulitmately, you need to find a doctor or midwife that you are comfortable with and go where they go.
