    Comment:  "Spring OB Gyn offered a class called ""Bringing Baby Home"". It attempts to teach new parents how to take care of newborns like how to hold them, change them (diapers and clothes), bathe them, etc. It was probably not worth the time and money, but not sure if it's a curriculum issue or instructor issue. You practice on dolls, it felt slow and touchy feely.I would have preferred to learn more quickly about the practicalities and spend time on how to engage with your partner and navigate this major change in relationship."

    Comment:  "This is a group practice. I actually met a few different providers before settling on Dr. Linda Cho. Dr. Cho was really warm, attentive and patient with my questions and needs. I really liked her and had hoped she would be on rotation when I delivered.However, as a group practice on delivery day, your doctor depends on who is on rotation that day. My daughter was delivered by Dr. Katherine Keaty, who has since left the practice. I felt she was not as gentle or considerate with her examinations, and I was confused by whether her multiple calls for using the vaccuum to get the baby out if the next push wasn't successful were to rush a natural process that I had limited control over, or ""encourage"" me to push harder."

    Comment:  Very good experience. They work in a "team model"; patients see all the doctors rather than having a dedicated physician. There was good continuity between providers; they each always knew what was going on down to the details, and they have fairly similar demeanors.

    Comment:  Wade, Greenwald and Rodgers were there at the end. I loved my experience at Spring OB- with so many doctors to choose from, it made it much easier for my extended birthing experience. By the time I gave birth, we filtered through 3 different OBs in the hospital. Throughout my pregnancy, I was able to meet all 10 OBs in the practice (some multiple times) and got to know them well.

    Comment:  I was generally very pleased with my experience at Spring, and also had a good labor/birthing experience with Dr. Feldman. I appreciated the opportunity to meet all the doctors during my pregnancy so that I would at least have a familiar face when I was in labor. The practice can be more conservative/risk averse, but generally I felt listened to and supported throughout!

    Comment:  I loved all the doctors here - Dr. Feldman was my primary, but because she had a child halfway through my pregnancy and they rotate anyway I ended up seeing a lot of different doctors in the practice and it they were all great. Dr. Rodgers ended up being my doctor for the delivery and she was just awesome. She was appropriately calm and confidence boosting, and I just felt I was in good hands.

    Comment:  Spring OB/GYN is a group practice with all women doctors. You see one doctor for the first 28 weeks of pregnancy and then rotate through the others at subsequent appointments so that you get to know everyone in advance of your delivery, as the doctor on call when you go into labor will be the one to deliver your baby. They refer you to Carnegie Imaging in midtown for ultrasounds, nutritionists, etc. My experience at Spring Street was good — the doctors are nice and were responsive any time I reached out with questions or concerns. Dr. Greenwald delivered my baby, and we had a positive experience with her. I would not recommend this practice for anyone who is interested in an unmedicated birthing experience. While they did not push me to have any unnecessary interventions, it seems like the majority of their patients have epidurals.

    Comment:  Loved my experience! Appointments were generally on time and the office staff was very friendly. My minor complaint is that it was sometimes difficult to schedule appointments during my preferred time slots and the office staff had a hard time keeping track of which doctors I had met with once I started rotating appointments- if you plan in advance and stay organized then everything should be fine. My primary doctor was Dr. Greenwald but Dr. Onbreyt delivered our son. Even though this wasn’t the plan, I wouldn’t have changed a thing. I ended up needing an emergency c-section - Dr. Onbreyt was a calming presence during the hectic prep, and her professionalism and ability to explain things in a factual yet empathetic manner was appreciated.

    Comment:  This is a great practice with many good doctors to choose from. They are also very responsive to questions via their online portal. While my original provider was Dr. Rodgers, as an OB patient you are encouraged to have visits with all the doctors because you don't know who will be on call when you give birth. I liked most of the doctors I saw, and ultimately delivered with Dr. Feldman. I had such a positive experience delivering with her that I have decided to switch to her as my main doctor. All of the doctors are calm, informative, and allow you to own your experience. I did not have a strict birth plan so I was very happy to take their guidance on delivery day (my water broke early so I needed to be induced with pitocin anyway), and I appreciated that Dr. Feldman allowed my baby to make her own way down before pushing so that it wasn't too taxing on me- even though I had drugs, she also balanced it with my baby's natural process. The only thing i wish is that I knew very little about pregnancy and birth, and I didn't even really know what questions to ask. Because it's a group practice, there is less personal touch, and more of a business-like efficiency approach. I would have liked a little more "bedside" manner during my prenatal visits to help with first mom nerves during a pandemic, and an extreme lack of knowledge.

    Comment:  I liked that I got to meet everyone in the practice though they couldn't guarantee who would deliver my child. If it was an option to be able to have an OB where you knew they and only they would be your delivery doctor that would be my preference, but that doesn't seem like a thing anymore.

    Comment:  As far as doctors go - I used Dr. Onberyt at Spring OB/Gyn in Manhattan. So far she has been very kind fairly laid back (which I appreciate). All the doctors at Spring OB/Gyn deliver at NYU hospital in the city. I had initially been looking for MDs that deliver at Methodist because it is so close to my apt., but all my friends that live in the neighborhood told me they go to doctors in Manhattan and/or delivered at NYU. I obviously personally have never delivered at NYU, but my sister did and she seemed to be pretty happy with the service. The facilities definitely seem very nice/new. (December 2019)

    Comment:  I’m with Dr. Wade at Spring Ob/Gyn, where I’ve been for years. I like Dr. Maldonado there too. The practice is cozy but practical and they offer early AM appointments that run on time.It’s an all female practice and they also deliver at NYU. I considered switching to Methodist closer to home (I’m in Boerum Hill), but was discouraged reading about the wait times at doctor’s visits. I also considered NYP Lower Manhattan but would have to switch insurance plans and just seemed overwhelming.Plus, despite being crowded, it seems like NYU is great for delivery and has a high level NICU just in case! I’ve read some scary things but the handful of people I know that had babies there had great experiences so fingers crossed! (December 2019)

    Comment:  The practice is very popular, so the physicians don't spend a lot of time during your prenatal appointments (pretty typical for NYC). You need to really take control of your own health and ask questions in order to understand what's going on, especially when test results come back and a nurse calls just to say everything is "normal" without giving any specific results. I was told things were normal and then at 20 weeks had to start medication suddenly when my thyroid tests were progressively abnormal and no one had alerted me to it beforehand. I also gave birth on a particularly busy day and my doctor spent less than 30 mins with me during the whole process (including delivery and repairs). Everything was delegated to nurses and interns/residents.

    Comment:  Spring was overall great. The front desk staff could be a little brusque (as is typical with doctors' offices these days) but all of the doctors and medical staff were great. All of my portal questions were promptly answered. From other women I've talked to it seems like they take a middle approach to testing during pregnancy.Dr. Rodgers was my primary doctor and happened to be my doctor for delivery as well, which I appreciated as I knew her best. She is great - no-nonsense, a little wry, kind without being falsely cheery. Dr. Maldonado was on duty for the first half of the day I was in labor, and although I had never met her before I also found her very easy to work with. They definitely know their stuff. Spring (and the a-maz-ing nurses at NYU) deserve a lot of credit for managing to avoid a c-section for me even though I had to be induced after my water broke and was not progressing for a long time.My one frustration is that I wound up with a small episiotomy; I do not really know if this was preventable, as by the time they decided it was necessary I had been in labor a long time (though not pushing a long time) and was pretty out of it. I also know they were monitoring the baby pretty closely at that point and there were likely reasons for wanting to move things along. I asked about the c-section rates when first meeting with them, but hadn't thought to ask about episiotomies as I thought (perhaps naively) that it was rare these days.Overall, I would recommend Spring as a great choice if you're looking for the fairly traditional route and want to work with a doctor and give birth in a hospital.

    Comment:  I had a great experience with Spring OB/GYN. I saw each of the OBs at the practice throughout my pregnancy, and liked all of them. Dr. Cho was originally on duty when I arrived at the hospital, but my labor progressed slowly and Dr. Onbreyt eventually delivered my daughter. Dr. Onbreyt was amazing. Another woman was actually delivering at the exact same time as I was, but Dr. Onbreyt seamlessly helped me through my labor as she was helping her other patient. It was incredible.

Later on in your pregnancy you rotate through all the doctors so you can get to know them a bit in case someone besides your primary is on call when you go into labor.

    Comment:  I have conflicted feelings about Spring. Positives were that appointments were easy to schedule and if you like early morning appointments, it is very easy to schedule. All the doctors I rotated with were very pleasant and never demeaned my concerns or questions. I loved the doctor that delivered me - Dr. Feldman. She is very down to earth and a recent mother. I even went so far as to schedule my induction with her just because I felt so comfortable with her. I did have some concerns and frustrations with the practice, however. They definitely are on the conservative side. Decisions, tests, etc were always presented as 'musts' and you were never offered a choice. If you are hoping for more selection and freedom in your birth plan and journey, I would look elsewhere or be sure to stay strong in the knowledge that your journey is a choice. They are a large practice and definitely advise by the book (hence my inducement before my due date, which I still believe could have been delayed until the actual date).Based on a October 2017 birthing experience.
