I felt like the computer was the patient - not me. Did not feel cared for or a connection with this provider. My next appointment is with a different midwife & I'm hoping it will be a better experience. During our first appointment I felt like she tried to talk me out of a VBAC and that was the reason I chose Swedish Ballard.

Fra Na is very knowledgeable and puts me at ease! Highly recommend.

The provider seemed uninformed &/or unfamiliar with the questions I had. Also suggested treatment not favorable for a woman TTC. I had to remind her several times about my concerns. I left feeling like the appt. was useless.

Somewhat dismissive, clearly did not look @ my records or ask for history. Made some assumptions about my follow up in the clinic that came off very condescending.
