Who is the best high risk OBGYN in Cookeville. I went to Dr.Casal for the first visit and ended up seeing a nurse midwife and I am high risk. She had to search internet to see if one of my meds was okay to take. Not what I had expected. :(

That wasn't the internet, it was Physician's Desk Reference.

its kind of silly to expect any provider to know the complete profile of every drug out there

My Dr in Vanderbilt is gonna refer me to a high risk ob at Baptist. I'm just trying to find a Dr close to home I can trust with my health and some knowledge of the affects of my iv infusion medication on the baby. In case I don't make it to Nashville to deliver. I would also rather see one here than making the extra trips to Nashville.

You're ditching the midwife because she looked something up? Gee. I'm sure NO doctor ever looks ANYTHING up, right?

There is a physicians website where they actuallybexchange information. My doctor uses it to confer with other doctors on their opinions. I cannot believe the women here who won't give a midwife a chance and demand a doctor.

So I guess it's better to just prescribe and cross her fingers, instead of looking it up to be sure? Knowing you're high risk, she did the right thing.

Expecting any healthcare provider to know everything there is to know about the /bajillion/ different meds is ridiculous. They're humans. They don't have photographic memories (usually). All doctors and nurse practitioners look things up. If you ever find a doctor who thinks they know everything well enough to never look things up, run as fast as you can.

If you have ever had a HIGH RISK pregnancy, you would know the IMPORTANCE of seeing the SAME DR every visit. And being able to TRUST your physician.

That's not true. Physicians have electronic medical information that can and is shared. I had a high risk pregnancy and my doctor who was supposed to deliver me was called out of town due to a death in the family. His associate came in and took wonderful care of me. He had never been me before, but reviewed my case which was well documented by my regular physician. To say you have to trust your doctor is without questuon. If you are admitted to the hospital chances are your regular trusted will not see you, a hospitalist will. What's important is that your case is well documented and will be. There are a lot of women with high risk pregnancies and the care now is so much better than it was years ago.

We'd have a lot less high risk pregnancies if people who shouldn't be having kids would quit insisting on doing it.

So lets see, when I had my children, I was in a marriage, had a steady, GOOD job, wasnt on any assistance, so I still shouldnt have had kids? Should have aborted?

i dont think thats what theyre talking about. i think theyre talking about people who decide to get pregnant even though doctors have told them it wasnt a good idea....or go out have have three years worth of fertility treatments trying to force their body to do something it doesnt want to do.

Totally unrelated to OP's post but someone I know who has genital herpes decided to have a baby. Their physician advised them against it but they were hell bent on doing it so all the doctor could do was prescribe a multi-approach regimen designed at preventing transmission to the baby. Well they still ended up giving their child herpes. Now they have a son who is not only infected with this disease but also has to live with the stigma attached to it. We know how people are. They hear a word like "herpes" or "HIV" and immediately assume that it was sexually transmitted.

I'm sorry but if you have a child knowing full well that there is a huge possibility that something will happen to it during pregnancy or delivery that will affect it for the rest of its life, you are selfish. Again, totally unrelated to OP's question, just going off what "Trees" said.
