I just discovered I was pregnant this week and I was looking for some information on some OB/GYN's at Highlands. The particular doctor's in my insurance network are:

1. Dr. Pigg and 2. Dr. Ascani

Any info good or bad on these doctors??? Thanks!!

Dr. Ascani is an excellent Dr. I went to Dr. Pigg years ago in Pikeville He was not much you got treated like cattle herded in and out fast . Dr. Ascani has always been very nice and willing to answer questions no matter the time it took . I have been going to Hazard to see him . I really appreciate him as a Dr. you don't get treated so nice by many Drs. He got right to the problem instead of treating the symptoms like other Drs. But you need to make the choice make appts. at both and see how it goes .

Is Dr. Ascani a foreign man or woman or what? Is he difficult to understand or to understand you?

No Dr. Ascani is not foreign , Rebel girl should have been going to a high risk Dr. all along because it was high risk . If you don't have a normal preg. You should go to a specialist . If you have foot pain you don't go to a family physician .Every Dr. is not right for every patient . Dr. Ascani is a kind caring Dr. I went to Dr. Maggard and got much the same treatment as every where else . And refused to go back . My family physician refered me to Dr. Ascani .

Dr. Pigg use to work with Dr Altman in Pikeville around 20 years ago. If I'm not mistaken, I could be...they got rid of him for some reason.

Dr. Ascani is a great doctor he is from Louisiana. He is easy to understand. He delivered my 4 year old son. I had no problems with him. You should check him out. He was great to me, he answered all my questions and made sure to keep me informed about procedures and options the whole pregnancy!!

He delivered my Daughter too . I never went back . They treat you like cattle in Altmans office . I like Asconi because he takes his time and answers questions . You went to someone for yearly visits maybe you should go to them they know your history .

misb5 Clay City, KY --- maybe you are right about Rebelgirl - that she should have been seeing a high risk Dr all along. But that was the Doctors position to tell her that. So, Dr. Ascani was wrong for that failure. My god stop posting if you can't back up your position. Rebelgirl isn't a Dr or Nurse. As we know it could have been her 1st pregnancy.

No it was not the Dr"s place to tell her . I have never heard of such a thing in my life . Anybody in their right mind should know if you have a high risk preg. to go to a high risk Dr.
i didnt know

The hospital is only averaging 14 deliveries a month due to what an earlier poster stated about the full term stii births also the hospital is no longer joint commission accredited. So you should be taken care of since nobody is going there. They have nothing else to do.

DR.S is a bad obgyn doctor because if u have sugar she will put u on all kinds of medical that can hurt u and they she will tell u ur baby is fine and that she a heart beat one week and then the next time u go back she tell u that ur baby heart or its brain dont know fuction right OR SOMETHING AND SHE DOESNT EXPLAIN WHY IT HAPPENEND THAT IS NOT A GOOD DOCTOR TO ME OR THAT IS WHAT I THINK ..........
AND THEN AFTER SHE TELL U THAT UR BABY IS DEAD AND THEN SHE DOESNT HAVE THE NEROVE TO COME AND TALK TO U ABOUT THAT IS NOT A GOOD DOCTOR TO ME .... AND THEN SHE WANTS TO DO SURGERY THE NEXT DAY.WITH OUT EXPLIAN ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT HAPPEND I DONT THINK THAT IS RIGHT ......SO THAT IS WHAT i think ......
I HAVE HERD OTHER PEOPLE TELL ME THE SAME THING HAPPEND TO THEM ... I THINK THAT SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DO ABOUT THAT BEFORE IT HAPPENED AGAIN ..........

You should have checked your own sugar you retard where you trying to kill your fetus or are you really that stupid? He probably thought you would do what most people with diabeties does...eat right and keep a sugar machine with them....GOD people are freaking dumb as hell some times.
