Newly PG with baby #2, and last time I took the recommendation of a friend in choosing my OB, who I ended up hating. (The OB, not the friend!) So this time around, I want to do a better job selecting my dr. but I honestly don't know how this works - will docs really make an appointment for you to just go and "interview" them? Do you have to pay for this kind of appointment, if all you're doing is asking them questions about their practice etc?
And what questions are the best ones to ask? My initial questions are which hospitals they deliver at and whether they do VBAC or not, but beyond that, I'm not sure. What I hated about my last doc was his total lack of bedside manner, the fact that he was always halfway out the door before I could even ask a question, and that he seemed to think he was smarter than everyone else on the planet. So what I'm really looking for is someone who is respectful, who listens, and who actually gives you the time of day. How exactly do I ask them that?
Anyway, sorry for the long post, but any advice or recommendations would be great!
