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.

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.

My questions were answered, yes; I was given general care, yes. The absolute basics of the visit were covered - but that was it. My questions were blown off a bit, answers were quick and casual with no detail explaining the answers. Also, I asked for a Rx that I have taken in the past [...] and was told she couldn't order it for me b/c she was unsure how to spell it and couldn't locate in my file. [...] I left feeling frustrated and unheard. Additionally follow up tests were ordered for me but I was not given any instructions for how to prep for those (one required an 8-12 hour fast). When my results came back, they were posted to mychart with no explanation! So I'm assuming I don't have gestational diabetes but no one has confirmed that for me.
