Obgyn Care reviews in Seattle

    Evergreen Women's Health Center
    While Dr. Cardwell seemed nice enough and I thought I was having a perfect pregnancy, I couldn't have been more wrong. It seemed like check- ups were quick, although she always said everything looked great. Boy, were we shocked when my son was born with a cleft lip and palate, and a severe congenital heart defect. Both of these could of and should have been diagnosed prenatally. We were devasted! Please be aware that there is something very wrong in the system at this office and with it's practices!

    The doctor was great though (Annette Blevins). Answered all my questions (plus a few I never would have thought about). Very patient and descriptive. Will go back just because of her thoroughness and bed side manner.

    I really like her. She is very thorough and patient. She sits down and keeps saying what else, what else. She keeps asking if I have other questions until I don't. I highly recommend her. She is smart and caring.

    Both my pregnancies were high risk, although the first started normally enough. By 18 weeks things started going south, and despite the efforts of the doctors, my daughter was born at 33 weeks. After things calmed down, Dr. Pray was very upfront about what I would face if I wanted to have a second baby. She was also very clear that as long as I followed doctors orders, she was supportive of a second pregnancy.
    Two years later, she kept me under a very watchful eye, and I made it to just shy of 37 weeks. I credit her and the great docs there for doing everything possible to mitigate the risks I faced. They were wonderful. She was very tactful when she spoke about whether there should be a #3. We were on the same page that it was too risky, which I had already decided. I still appreciated her kindness and delicate nature in talking about what might have been an emotional topic.
    Both kids are healthy, active and normal, btw. :)

    University of Washington Medical Center

    Overall, I would rate the University of Washington as a very good medical care provider. Works for me, but not for everybody.

    Pros:

    + Patient information is very thorough, UW Medical Center provides both in person as well as in documentation a lot of patient care information. These do not read like legalese, and are actually helpful information to alleviate frequently asked concerns. Doctors are also willing to explain their procedures and choices to their patients, and do not take a "moral high ground" sometimes seen with medical care providers.

    + Most of the doctors I have met except a notable few do not appear to rush their appointments, and take the necessary time to properly consult with their patients. They are also fairly thorough in considering multiple diagnosis and options and do not rush to quick judgments on your condition.

    + Doctors appear to be well informed of the latest research and studies associated with their specialties. Guess this is one of the benefits of a teaching hospital. Many are able to provide patients with more information and answer "odd-ball" questions than the average doctor. I feel better taken care of as I know my doctor would have considered most of the latest research before treating me, instead of just going by outdated rule of thumb.


    Cons:

    - Ground staff can be a bit slow in processing appointments. Frequently requests for patients to arrive 10-15 minutes before appointment time, but even if you arrive early, they make you wait all the same while they process the information before you get to your appointment. I do not see a difference and clear benefit arriving at the recommended earlier time and arriving 5 minutes before the appointment or on time.

    - Billing can be confusing as frequently the bills are broken up into 2 parts, UW Medical and UW Physicians. This is explained on the website but it is hardly clear. Would recommend having a really good insurance company to sort out the billing. I haven't had any problems, but was able to delegate most of this to the insurance company for processing, however, checking the bills are right is near impossible.

    - Trade off of being a teaching hospital, there is a slight privacy gap to have multiple doctors sometimes in one visit, or observing residents present during the appointment.

    - This is a practice that relies heavily on tests and statistical results. Can be reassuring to some, and cold and objective to others. It can also be expensive, and costs aren't a factor that weigh significantly on the minds of doctors and seldom gets discussed unless patient raises the topic.

    Dana Blackham MD
    He is a fantastic doctor and he seems to be a naturopathic in my opinion as in he won't interfere unless he is asked to. He cares for both the baby and mother and he really supports the mother in what she wants to do. He talks to your husband and in addition what is fantastic is that he is the one that delivers your baby. His office is small and very private and his staff is just one other person, so people can feel comfortable there. I prefer the very personalized care he has.

    I'm satisfied with their service. The doctor that I saw was obviously confident, personable and explained things. The staff are always very nice. They're a place I go for everything and I always find them very nice and very helpful.

    Seattle OB/GYN Group
    This is my first pregnancy. I was assigned to Dr. Koala who is very professional and highly ranked. Issue I'm having is that I felt the NP, who did our initial visit and ultrasound, spent more time with us and really seemed interested in answering questions; this is the kind of attention I need with my first pregnancy. Dr. Koala is kind of in-n-out. Also, there is no guarantee that your Seattle OB/GYN Group physician will deliver your child - it's whomever is on the schedule at that time. I'm switching to a Midwife and Doula combo who will be with me the entire way and then some; a better fit for my normal pregnancy. If there are any complications, I can only hope someone like Dr. Koala is present for surgery.

    Swedish Medical Center - Ballard Campus
    The centering group was awesome. Each month (and then every 2 weeks at the end), we would get together with 7 to 9 other couples whose due date was within a month of ours. Each time we would meet, a midwife would lead the session along with one other person. We would discuss the medical side of things, and then also our hopes, fears, and just get to know each other. 5 months later, we are all still in contact regularly and they are all a great support. The midwives themselves were great, but honestly the centering group and ladies I met there were unparalleled.

    Dr. Choo is very personable to talk to and since the very first time in meeting with her she took the time to talk and answer any question we had during all of our visits. She also was able to be on staff during our delivery and it made that experience an absolute beautiful and pleasant memorable experience. She was very professional and knowledgable, we are looking forward to adding to our new family and using her again!
