    Comment:  I am working with Dr. Christy McAvoy. She is at Women's Associates Health at Methodist and delivers there. First baby so haven't delivered yet but great experience so far with the first 7 months.

    Comment:  I couldn’t recommend Dr. Christy McAvoy more! She delivered both of my children and at this point feels like family. She is beyond competent and helped me through one difficult pregnancy and another traumatic delivery with confidence (even when nurses seemed quite stressed). When we were making an important delivery decision with my second she sat and talked to my daughter so we could make the right decision without worrying about our 3 year old. I also don’t know how the woman takes so few vacations! She was always there when we needed her. Best of luck! We loved being at a close by hospital!

    Comment:  Dr. McAvoy was amazing. She was very practical and no-nonsense during the months leading up to the birth, but it was at the birth itself that she really shone. She was an amazingly calming presence and worked to make the delivery as smooth as possible. My husband and I are considering relocating to a city outside NY, but one of our big hesitations delaying our move is that we want to be sure to keep Dr McAvoy if we have a second baby!

    Comment:   So...I second the love for Dr McAvoy in Brooklyn. I didn't have her as my OBGYN but, boy, when the chips were down and I was hemorrhaging in an ER at Methodist 4 days later and signing off on paperwork that could have led them down the path of a hysterectomy on the operating table, i was very grateful to have someone like her! She is definitely no-nonsense and doesn't sugar coat things, that advice is also true. But she speaks plainly and calmly and warmly and the overriding feeling I had with her through my surgeries and ICU experience was how I was in utterly competent hands. Nice when you're passing clots the size of oranges! TMI....

    Comment:  I delivered with Dr. McAvoy in Park Slope – just as a further note to what others are saying: she's a very competent doctor and surgeon (I ended up having a C-section), and she did honor my wishes whenever possible, but she is extremely no-nonsense and straightforward. On a couple of occasions, I found her to be a bit brusque and dismissive. This isn't necessarily an issue but if bedside manner is important to you, she's not super warm and fuzzy. (She was recommended by a friend, and my friend felt her style/manner was a great antidote to neurosis, so it might just be me.)

    Comment:  If you’re looking for someone in Park Slope, I went to Dr. Christy McAvoy and I loved her! She makes herself so available, answering emails all the time. She’s direct and she’s on top of things.I had a somewhat poor experience with an OBGYN with my first pregnancy and I felt so fortunate to find Dr. McAvoy for my second.

    Comment:  She is a dream doctor. I have recommended her to several friends. She has been my GYN for years, and I have valued her in that regard (straightforward, short wait at appointments). So of course I wanted her as my OB, and in that capacity, she was outstanding! Again, I valued that at appointments there was short to no wait time to see her. And, again, I valued her straightforward, no-nonsense nature. She is relaxed so made me feel relaxed. Then, at the birth, her superhero abilities really shone through. Her personality made her the perfect presence at my birth; she was calm, kind, and helpful when I was having contractions, and she was a phenomenal coach during pushing -- knowing just what and how to tell me what to do. My husband felt the same way about her. I 100% recommend her to others.Based on March 2017 birth experience

    Comment:  REVIEW: I like Dr McAvoy because she is fairly even keeled, positive and practical. And her appointments run on time! This is no thanks to the staff in the office. INSURANCE Accepted insurance seamlessly. Based on a April 2015 birth

    Comment:  Office in the faculty practice building above Barnes & Noble in Park Slope Affiliated with Methodist, takes Aetna, essentially a solo practitioner so if you need OB services she will 99% deliver your baby Fantastic doctor all around - smart, personable, & a real advocate for her patients (especially in light of the administrative and ancillary staff shortcomings at that hospital) She delivered both of my children

    Comment:  She's part of the faculty practice at Methodist (in the building above barnes & noble on 7th ave in park slope) but is essentially solo for her private patients so 99% she will deliver your baby, not someone else.She delivered both of my children & though I'm not a huge fan of Methodist, my experience with her both times was excellent (& each delivery was very different).She's sweet, smart, progressive, & most importantly a great advocate for her patients. Can't say enough good things about her.
