    Comment:  I’m having a scheduled c-section this time around. My doctor is Dr. Whitehead of Downtown Women’s and their practice delivers at NYU. I’ve recommended several friends to the practice, but I feel it’s important to give you some disclaimers.Even though we knew it was a scheduled c-section since the beginning, due to issues I had during my first pregnancy, and they promised me I’d have Dr. Whitehead, they actually scheduled me with Dr. Bahora. The practice is made of women OBs, which is why I liked them initially. I’ve met a lot of them once or twice, but I was very upset that they didn’t keep their promise. In fact, it was a very big issue for me.Additionally, the office is always packed and I find they are always at least an hour late seeing me. Often my husband has to go back to work and misses the appointments because they’re so late. I’ve also made it all the way to Soho from Brooklyn pregnant for appointments and they have told me that they made scheduling errors or mistakes and asked me to come back a different day or time.Overall, I find the office staff to be disorganized and the nurses to often be rude. But, Dr. Whitehead is fantastic, so is Dr. Lajoie. Dr. Bahora is also very good. Dr. Minh, who is the head of the practice is very competent, but a bit terse in terms of bedside manner. There was a blonde doctor, but I forgot her name, who kept yawning during our appointment and was very abrupt. There are a ton of other doctors, and it’s a bit of crap shoot to find out who you will have. They have no problems scheduling you for a c section with someone you have never met.As you can tell, this is not a true endorsement, more like a sharing of my experience. But, I hope it helps. The reality is I’ve left that office in tears more times than I can remember and it’s been a very stressful part of my pregnancy.

    Comment:  There were about 8 doctors at Downtown Women’s OB-GYN and I had met all of them except Dr Whitehead prior to going in labor. I was actually scheduled to meet her that same week but my baby came 5 weeks early so I met her the day of. She was very nice and although I was in a blur, I do recall her taking good care of me and making sure I delivered safely.
