East valley obgyn recs?

So we are on our way to 2u2 but I moved to Gilbert after having A.  I used to have my obgyn in downtown Phoenix and delivered at St. Josephs. Which everything was fine and all but wondering if I can cut down on my commute and stuff this next time around.   I am curious if anyone has any good recommendations for an east valley obgyn?  Preferabbly with privileges at Banner Dessert..... Thanks!  We havent told any IRL friends yet since it's so early that now I feel silly asking who their doctors are.

Re: East valley obgyn recs?

  • Speaking from experience, stay away from the Goodman & Partridge practice.  Unfortunately I do not have a recommendation for a good ob/gyn.
  • I don't have a rec for you... but I just wanted to say CONGRATS and a H&H 9 months to you. :)
  • Congrats to you! I switched Doc's midway through my pregnancy based on a recomendation I got from this board (mrsNoan) and was I so glad I did. My doc is Deanna Bollero. I hope I'm spelling it right. She is an amazing doctor and I love everyone in that practice. Not sure if she delivers at Banner Desert but I know she does at Banner Gateway. off Higley and the 60

    I don't have her number and I'm posting from my phone but I can give it to you if you want it

  • First, Congrats! Looks like your little ones will be about 19 months apart? Mine are 20 and while it's busy, it is amazing Smile

    Second, if you are really wanting to deliver at Desert, my rec would be Dr. Steven Lepetich. He is awesome!

    Third, if your are willing to deliver at Gateway (we are the best! ;)), my rec is Dr. Bullaro. She is my personal favorite (and I work with MANY OB's and see first hand their bedside manner, skill, etc) I actually referred jj4ever to her :)

     If you have any other questions, let me know!

     

  • Thanks ladies! I appreciate it.  I will look into the doctors.  Gateway is closer....but the er nurse in me has difficulty letting go of having the higher nicu available just in case you know?

     I've heard this before but I never had any problems with them.  I mainly saw Dr. Guzman and he was great!  Dr. Baum did the actual delivery and I liked her as well.  

  • I also recommend Dr Bullaro. She is awesome as is the NP and the entire office staff. Also, Gateway is a great hospital.

    Completely understandable!

  • What about Dr. Kells at boojum obstetrics (and he has 2 CNM's) I'm not sure where his priveleges are though.

     

    If I used a OB that's who I'd go with.

     

    Stacy also used Janet something and liked her so maybe she'll pop in 

  • Dr. Beck is wonderful. I go to him and so do three of my friends. I have not had children yet but they have and said he's amazing. I believe he is their head dr or whatever that's called at Banner Gateway. I know it's not Banner Desert but he's great! GL and Congrats!
  • I LOVE my OB - she delivers at Scottsdale Shea.

    Love that maternity ward also!!!!!!!!!!

    Arizona Womens Care - Dr. Hlavacek

    She sat in my room for 3 hours as we waited for the OR to open up for my c- section AWESOME! YOUNG FUN!!!!!!!!!!

    I used to go to Dr. Kells but I HATED that office. They are NOT confidential what-so-ever and just unprofessional.  HOWEVER, I did see the MW there (Ramona) and liked her but when I finally got pregnant, I moved to Valley Women for Women to see Janice Bovee, who is BEYOND amazing! I'd recommend her all day. She will be delivering all my babies.

  • Ugh, i agree. Goodman and Partridge were horrible to me when i was having issues with a cyst. 

     

    Feb 9 is my first appointment with the OB that my sister used for both of her children. I have another child, but he was born before we moved to AZ. I am seeing Lisa Hollar, her office is next to Banner Desert.  

    The phone number is 480 461 1161.  

    Congrats, and good luck. Currently, I am 9w4d. Due 9/9/2012.

    Thanks and goodluck! My ticker is off but my due date is 9/8.  I am seeing dr. Lepitch now, but thank you for the recommendation....always good to know who my options are in case I have issues with the practice I started with.  How old is your son?

    Happy birthday to your son! I can't believe this pregnancy is almost over, it seems to have gone by really fast this time. Everything so far has gone well, we don't know what we are having yet so the anticipation is definitely building. Congrats on your daughter coming! How are you doing? Staying cool in this crazy heat?
