During my first pregnancy, I was unhappy with my OBGYN and the hospital she would have forced me to deliver with, so I did the unimaginable and switched OB's around 34 weeks! I searched high and low, and was referred to Oakwood Women's Center. After reading the doctors' profiles online, I decided on Dr. Rodriguez and I'm SO glad I did! She is sweet, and patient, and kind, and caring. It was too bad I didn't have her from the beginning. She always takes the time to answer all of your questions, and never makes you feel rushed.
Dr. Murphree is the one who actually ended up delivering my son because my doctor wasn't on call that night, but he was AMAZING, too. I felt like I was in good hands no matter which doctor from their practice came through the door.
I'm pregnant again and VERY much so looking forward to having Dr. Rodriguez there every step of the way!
I have been a patient at Oakwood Women's Center for several years. I've stuck around because of the occasional positives that I see and because I believe that one visit isn't always representative of the quality of the office, but now I'm reconsidering.
On my first visit in my late teens, I told my doctor that I was virgin. She pressed me several times, asking if that was really true. I found that embarrassing and offensive!
I have also been put off by the rude behavior and inattentiveness of several of the receptionists.
I took an afternoon off work for my most recent visit and got a call last minute saying that my doctor had to cancel. To the center's credit, they worked with me to put me with another doctor so that I wouldn't have to lose more work time. I was appreciative and had a great experience with Dr. Maunder. I also felt hopeful about a new prescription that I decided to try.
When I went to the pharmacy the following day, my prescription had not been called in. I called the after-hours line and was connected to a doctor who seemed incredibly irritated that I had called. He informed me that my problem was not an emergency and that my drugs would work as well if I started on Monday as if I did that day.
As a teacher, I believe I understand the incredible demands that can be placed on those in service professions. At the same time, I take professional pride in doing whatever I can for those who need my help, even if I am inconvenienced, and particularly if my organization is at fault. I always try to bear in mind that I am dealing with human lives and that my attitudes and actions carry significant weight.
No, my call was not a "medical emergency," but I didn't realize that attempting to get my medicine would be so irritating and offensive to a doctor. The condescending, dismissive, and callous way I was treated did not at all match Oakwood Women's Center's motto of "compassionate health care." Kindness and understanding would have made such a difference in my life at that point.
I definitely deserve better than Oakwood Women's Center seems ready to give.
