You may have many questions when you find out that you are pregnant, but some of the most common concerns revolve around nutrition and food safety. These are some basic guidelines from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to get you started. As always, your situation may be different and so always discuss specifics with your provider.

How much weight should I gain?

This depends on your pre-pregnancy BMI (body mass index - a calculation from your height and weight). In general, however, if your pre-pregnancy weight is normal you should gain between 25 to 35 pounds. Most women stay within this goal with an increase of only 300 extra calories a day (equal to about 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and one slice of whole wheat bread). If you are underweight, however, you may need to gain more weight, and if you are overweight, less. Your doctor can help you to come up with a spec...

PATIENT RATINGS AND COMMENTS

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey.Responses are measured on a 10 - point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5 - point scale in order to display results in a 5 - star rating.Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I've seen Dr Patani for several years. she is typically good. this visit was less than great. in reviewing options and causes of a new condition it would be appreciated if an appointment is available sooner than 3 weeks of cancer is a concern. the difficulty in scheduling the ultrasound [...] is unacceptable. it makes me concerned that the quality of care is as bad as the performance of the administrative teams. bed side manner could be revisited with Dr Patani. retraining is needed with the administrative teams

Would be helpful to have probabilities & stats of likely outcomes from medical provider rather than having to look them up online.

She was too busy for me. I said i wanted to talk about options outside of medication and she continued on with her spiel as though i didn't say anything. I waited a long time to see her. I deserved my time with her.

I saw Dr Patani for endometriosis, a condition I've had for over 15 years and for which I've seen many, many providers. By far, Dr Patani provided the best care of any doctor I've seen. She listened to my concerns, offered treatment that fit within my lifestyle (more holistic, less reliant on drugs) and was super helpful and effective. Through the course of endometriosis treatment, we found pre-cancer in my cervix. Again, she was excellent in providing care that worked for me. I cannot recommend or praise her highly enough. She represents the very best and I am beyond grateful for all she has done. For the first time in years, I am out of pain and that is all due to Dr Patani's care and support.
