The front staff was awesome and always very helpful.
I was not, however, as impressed with Dr. Song. I had moved in to the area already being 6 months pregnant and was looking for a Dr. that would help me w/ my upcoming VBAC. Unfortunately she was the only Dr. I could find in such a short time who would agree (my previously Dr. said that I was a perfect candidate for a VBAC and was confident I would have no problems).
I never felt that Dr. Song listened to my questions and I almost felt like she was planning a C-section the whole time. I was nervous about labor, but could never seem to get any real answers or help preparing for it.
When I did finally go in to labor (on my own), my little boy was sunny side up and even though I was 70% and dilated to an 8cm, Dr. Song just sighed and said it looked like we would have to do a C-section. I told her there was no way and that if she would just tell me what to do I could have this baby vaginally! She just left and said she'd be back in 20 min. to see if anything changed!
Luckily I had an AMAZING nurse that came to my aid. She talked me through everything and had the baby flipped back w/in 10 min!! I would have been in such bad shape if it wasn't for my wonderful nurse!
I was annoyed that Dr. Song never believed in me and that I had to be my own cheer leader during my delivery.
The only time she was extra nice was when I was closing my acct at her office and I had to pay the remaining balance of my bill. I honestly felt that she was more interested in the money than she was in her patients.
Unless you want a C-section I would find another Dr!!
