cynnnabun:I'm curious if anyone has done this, and when? I'll be 26 weeks on Saturday and I'm just not happy with my docs. I want to start looking elsewhere, but IDK if it's too late to do it.
I am in the process of switching Dr's. You just have to call around and make sure the Dr. you want is taking new patients, then you will have to get your medical records from you current Dr. faxed to your new one. That process for me is taking 10 days, but I'm sure it will different for you. Good luck!
rickandcaitlin:SWITCH! Just think, you only see your OB once a month now. Pretty soon it will be every 2 weeks and then every week. Also this is who is going to be in the delivery room with you. So if you are unhappy I would def switch.
Ugh, good point! I can't imagine seeing his face and attitude every. single. week.
Defintiely switching. Thanks ladies!
I switched at 19 weeks because of a move. It sucks! They requested my records because of all the early blood tests and I had an early glucose test and they still haven't received it and its been 6 weeks. I ended up having to do all of the initial bloodwork again. I had to tell them so much about what went on early in my pregnancy. What my pre-pregnancy weight was, when I was due, any problems or complications I had (sub-chorionic hemorrhage, retroverted uterus) and even how far along I am.
With that being said, if you are truly unhappy with your doc then I would switch again. Just make sure your old office gives you your records or sends them to your new doc. Stay on top of that.
