Anyone used Dr. Paige Gernt as their OB? If so, what was your experience like with her? I am pregnant with my first child and have my first appointment with her in a couple of weeks. I know she is in the same office with Dr. Pippin who I have heard mixed reviews on. Anyone know what they do on the first visit? How early does their office do heart rate checks and ultrasounds?

Dr. Pippin was my doctor but Dr. Gernt delivered my son. They are both awesome and very caring.

Dr. Gernt is the best in my opinion! She is so sweet and somehow manages to make a very awkward situation as comfortable as possible. I had been to my old OB 3 times to try to figure out a problem I was having and she kept telling me I was fine nothing was wrong, etc. but I know my body and I knew something wasn't right. Finally, my family doctor recommended I try Dr. Gernt & my first visit she sat and talked with me for probably 20 minutes before even examining me (which was amazing considering my old OB didn't spend that much time with me all 3 visits combined) and she figured out I had cysts on my ovaries in 1 visit and haven't had problems since. I will never switch OB's as long as she is still available! Dr. Pippin doesn't have the best bedside manner but he is definitely the OB you want if you have a problematic pregnany - even heard 2 other OB's in Cookeville not even in that practice say that. Good luck & I think you'll really love Dr. Gernt!

Dr.Ferny is a very caring lady. I seen her back in June for the first time. Well she told me I had to have surgery the next day, and I had never had surgery before in my life. She was something, she let me know I would be okay with her. Every one at the hospital told me she is the best there is. I do believe she is. Soyou have a very good Drocter with her. Wish you the best with your new baby.

Dr. Pippin is NOT a physician that I liked at all. He delivered a relatives baby and the experience was horrible. There were no complications, but he refused to allow the parents to video or take photographs of their childs delivery! Unbelievable!!... Not to mention that it really make all of us wonder even more about him.
His bedside manner was horrific and the entire family was pretty mortified about his very arrogant, rude and controlling behaviors. The parents are who we felt the worst for however. The beautiful and positive birth experience that they had planned for was simply ruined by this guy.

Dr. Paige Gernt is a different story. I've not heard a single "ill" word about her. In fact, and as you see here, she seems to be well liked.:)

Dr Pippin is great, just very blunt and matter of fact which was fine with me. Most doctors will not let you video/take pics any more for insurance/fear of law suit (you can thank people who have used videos/cameras in bogus malpractice suits for that---i dont think Pippin has had.one though). Dr. Gernt would be a great choice, she a great doctor and very respectful. She wants to help people!

p Doctor was dr. Pham. She took wonderful care of me and is great! Dr. Gernt is amazing too! Dr. Pippin on the other hand I wouldn't go to if I was in active labor, I guess I'd find a different hospital. He's rude and has no bedside manner. Not impressed with him at all. Dr. Cole who is new there didn't impress me either but I had an extremely high risk pregnancy and he just didn't know how to take care of me when he was the on call doc. But Dr pham and Dr gernt are both outstanding doctors who care about their patients so much!

Dr Pippin was amazing and very caring with the delivery of my son. Dr gernt is amazing as well .. i was very thankful for Dr Pippin and gernt . I had a hard time with my blood pressure and they both took good care of me. They both excellent bed side manners.. If I decide to have another baby Dr Pippin or Dr gernt will be my Dr again !!.

The reason dr pippin wouldnt allow pics or videos is because Its against the company over the hospital it has nothing to do with him. he has to go by the rules just like everyone else. In healthcare theres a thing callee hippa and there very strict about it.

I would have been wondering why he was checking to see how far I dilated at 16 weeks? Maybe you were farther than you thought because your sac wouldn't been bulging... That's usually at 39 weeks.
