Dr. Park and Dr. Alkass at the UCONN Health Center are very nice, but avoid Dr. Walsh. He is extremely arrogant! When I asked him if I would be tested for gestational diabetes again before leaving the hospital he was short with me and said I'm not going to do it. I asked him when I could resume a normal diet and he said as far as he is concerned I can eat a box of donuts right after the delivery...I was like um, one might be nice, but isn't a box a bit excessive... I don't eat poorly anyways and resent that comment. When I asked him how bad the recovery from the C-section would be he said to me, "That depends on how big of a wuss you are." That really didn't answer my question either. He also told me that I would be a good candidate for a c-section. When I asked him why that was he told me that it is because I am not 400 pounds. Then he went on to tell me that I should be walking 2 miles a day everyday beginning now...I am almost 8 months pregnant and it was my impression that you should never begin a new exercise program while pregnant. This guy is a total jerk and I am seriously considering reporting him to the hospital. I wont be seeing him again!
If you want a great OBGYN go see Dr. Ursula Steadman located at 499 Farmington, Avenue, Farmington, CT. She is amazing. The only reason why I am no longer with her is because she only delivers at St. Francis in Hartford and I didn't want to go there.
