Has anyone delivered at the Winnie Palmer Hospital??? If so, how was it or did you have a good experience at another hospital. I am new to Florida and am trying to find an OB-GYN. Does anyone have any suggestions? THANKS!
Winnie is incredible! It's 3 years old and many of my friends have delivered there.
I also go to OB GYN Specialists -- they have a GREAT reputation and I have liked every doc that I have seen. http://www.obandgyn.cc/
They have offices in Winter Park, Oviedo and Sandlake/Dr Phillips. Everything is in-house (ultrasounds, bloodwork, etc) so you don't have to make appts to run all over town
I delivered my DS at Winnie Palmer. It was such a great experience. I also delivered my DD at Florida Hospital in Winter Park and Winnie was 1000 times better.
I go to Dr. Bielawny at Physician Associates.
Every woman I've known to deliver in Orlando, except for one, has chosen Winnie Palmer. I visited a friend of mine who just delivered this week and I thought the room was a little tight. I tasted the food and I though it was acceptable and I like that you and your partner can order without leaving the room. The partner has to pay $5 per meal and is only allowed to order 3 times a day. Mom can have as much as she wants, I believe.
I was considering Florida Hospital's The Baby Place but my doctor says she does 99.9% of her deliveries at Winnie and doesn't have much experience delivering at Florida Hospital. I don't think I want to go somewhere that my doctor isn't used to delivery with. I want her to be familiar with the procedures and staff of where I deliver.
I'm in the same boat, I'm debating between the Baby Place, which I've heard nothing but good things about--it's just a farther drive for us. And Winnie Palmer, I've heard waayy too many mixed opinions. Two of my girlfriends had their kids there, one said they push more towards C-Sections than anything and the staff is incredibly rude and if you need assistance like if your baby's crying, or you push the call button, you're waiting for a good 20 minutes. Example...what if your partner steps out of the room and your by yourself? O_o
My friend just had a little girl like a month and a half ago. She was suppose to deliver at Winnie. She was 36 weeks and went in with contractions about 4-5 min apart. They sent her home an hour later saying they're just Braxton Hicks and she'll be fine. She gets home, an hour later gets up to use the bathroom, her water breaks and delivers her little girl in her bathroom.
I've been in Winnie Palmer once to visit a friends mom and it looked really nice, but I don't know if I want to weigh the possibility of these negative occurrences happening again. =/
