Four years ago I was a patient of Dr. Dean who worked as a partner with Dr. Spencer. When I went into labor, my dr. was out of town and the on call Dr was Spencer. I was in labor for 18 hours and he only showed up the last 30 minutes before I gave birth. The nurses kept calling him, but he did not show up until the next day. One of the nurses had to break my water so I could start pushing. When he finally showed, he was not patient during the delivery. He cut me so the baby would come out faster. My husband said the nurses in the room had shocked expressions when he did that, so I'm guessing it was not necessary for him to cut me. My baby ended up swallowing meconium because it took so long to deliver her and she had to stay in NICU for a week. I went to a different Dr during my second pregnancy and delivery this year. She was great. She came in every 1 to 2 hours to check on me and was their the entire time I pushed helping the baby come along. Comparing the two, I know now how unlucky I was to have Dr Spencer be on call during my first delivery.
