I am 12 weeks pregnant and I went to my first prenatal visit about 3 weeks ago. Since it was my first visit I was expecting to be learning a lot from my doctor. But from the moment I signed in, I sat in the waiting room for 45 minutes and I was 15 minutes early for my appointment. After I finally went to the back, they measured me and did the norm checks and stuff, then they sat me down in his office for a first time visit.
I am 17 years old. Yes, a teen mom. When the assistant came into the room and asked for my info, she seemed so shocked when I told her my age. Then she used the "mom talk" about how I should have used a condom and blah blah blah. Even my own mom who was there with me was giving her an attitude face. So finally after the assistant left the doctor finally came in. When we started talking, he did the same thing the assistant did only just a bit more uncomfortable. Even when he did the exams, it was clearly obvious that he was so uncomfortable (including his OTHER medical assistant). As soon as he was done, he hurried and walked out to his next appointment. That's it. He didn't give me a receipt, he did not even bother to tell me when the next time he would like to see me, he just left. And when I asked his medical assistant when is the next time he will see me, she just said "Oh, he'll call you in about 3 weeks". Way past 3 weeks. I do not recommend him to anyone. I was so upset when I left because I was treated like an outcast because I am a teen mom.
I would really like to switch doctors. Any suggestions???
He was a doctor working out of Baylor in Dallas. So please no suggestions for that hospital anymore
