I just found out I'm pregnant and my husbands family wants me to see him. I have heard he a good Dr. but can be kind of mean. Is that just rumors or true for the most part? Anybody out there had him before?

I have been going to him for 10 years. He performed my c-section and did an exceptional job. I love Dr Southern and will never go anywhere else. I have recommended him to others, and they too loved him. You will definitely get top-rate care with him. I have heard nurses at the hospital don't like him, but I can say from experience that I think that is because he wants what is best for his patients and he will make sure they get that, no matter who he has to yell at to get it.

He's a great doctor!! I agree with Mary. I will never see another doctor.

He is the first male doctor I've ever seen, and he is by far better than any woman who's examined me.

Go to him, he's the best in the valley!! His office staff are awesome too!! You'll just love Kim!!

Good doctor but gets on your case if you gain a lot of pregnancy weight.

Yes, Kim is great! And so is Natalie - very helpful. He also doesn't fret over your payments, so if you're having a rough month, or can only pay $20 a month, he's more than understanding!

I was heavy(ish) when I got pregnant, and he NEVER gave me any grief!

I once again second Mary! I was not insured during my pregnancy. My daughter is almost 20 months old, but as long as you make an effort, he'll let you do what you can!!

I didn't see where anyone asked about his family. She asked about him as a doctor.

Take your shit talking drama elsewhere. Sheesh.

I am currently seeing him and he is very thorough and listens to me. I have heard nothing but good things about him and since seeing him myself I would recommend him to anyone who is pregnant.

I had him as my Dr. When I was pregnant with my first child. He is not at all friendly but he is a good Dr. He will make sure you have the best care during your pregnancy. Just dont expect a good bed side manner!

He is an awesome doctor. He has been my dr since 2001 and have had two pregnancies under his care and he is fantastic! I highly recommend him and his staff. I have never had any problems with him and I too was heavy during my pregnancy and he didn't say a word to me about the weight gain. He's never been anything but nice and I disagree with the no bedside manners but that was just in my case, maybe not everybodys. Bottom line, he is an awesome doctor with an amazing staff!

He probably wouldn't want your a** as a patient if you have to get on Topix to ask about him...

Wow, you shouldn't use any drugs even if you don't go to him. Do you think other ob/gyns tolerate that? lol What a bunch of dumb women! He SHOULD test your stupid a**es!

We aren't talking about all drugs here. If it's an illegal or unnecessary drug your a** should be bounced out of anyone's office. Yes, I will judge.

His son graduated from WVU and works for CBS sports and the Blue/Gold News in Morgantown according to the newspaper announcing his recent wedding. Don't think it's his son on crack! lol

I'm sorry, but ALL doctors are required to report to CPS if you are using while pregnant. That's just stupid and shows you're a loser who doesn't care about your kids. CPS should take your kids if you're using while pregnant. And I hope they took yours. If not, I'm sure it'll just be a matter of time because you're now on their radar. Good luck with that, loser.

Sounds like she was saying he's not a good doctor because he won't let her use drugs... wow! Sounds just like something a druggie would say.
