I was wondering what people thought about the obstetricians at The Clinic. I am pregnant and have been there twice so far, and am not very pleased. I was just wondering if it is just me. Has other ladies had better experiences? I am thinking of going to Abingdon, but not sure yet.

Can I ask why you are not happy with them? Do you feel like they are not taking proper steps or doing test? Or do you feel like they are judging you? I go for female things and so far I liked it. I am from an area that I had to wait 3 hours to be seen by an OBGYN so I believe 30 minute waits are not so bad and they seem to be knowledgeable.

Well I have a condition called PCOS. I take a metformin to help treat it. He asked ME what I did with the medicine for my last pregnancy. He also tried to tell me I was wrong about a progesterone shot I requested to take instead of the suppositories. I know for a fact they exist because I got them from a fertility specialist in Johnson City with my last pregnancy. Also, other women I've talked to have had more first trimester appointments when they have previous miscarriages. I also remember having more when I saw Dr. Knapp with my son. I just feel the doctor isn't very knowledgeable as he should be with my condition.

Who was the doctor? Personally I have found that Presnell was very knowledgeable and helped me with medication that was not even for female problems but with a stomach problem that I had seen two specialist for but could not help really. If you are having doubts I would take the extra time to find another doctor. Everyone talks about Abingdon/Bristol or further but they have some good doctors in WV as well and it is faster to get there than most places.

They SUCK! And the nurses are rude as can be! I always left there crying when I was pregnant and finally switched to Dr. Earl in Kingsport. Best decision I ever made

I went to the Clinic with my son. At 5 weeks they told me that I would miscarry and there was nothing they could do about it. I went to Abingdon OB to get second opinion and I am very thankful to say that my son is a happy healthy toddler now! I would NEVER go back to the Clinic, ever!

Presnell is ok, but he doesn't deliver babies. He just does gynecology. I currently go to Bristol, but I live closer. They are very good. I have heard good things about Abingdon too, except for a couple doctors. Go to Abingdon's topix and look through. There is a topic on the Obstetrics with reviews of the Abingdon docs. Good Luck!!

I think people have to realize that there isn't much a doctor can do in the first trimester to prevent or predict a miscarriage. They just happen. If your body does nit want to be pregnant or their is something wrong with the baby you will have a miscarriage. Now rude nurses and personnel I'd something he doctor could fix.

Weight can actually hinder your chances of conceiving. They are not trying to deny you because everyone here is overweight. It is just that both men and women can have a hard time when weight is involved and sometimes all it takes is loosing ten pounds and eating more fruits and veggies. Overweight women can hemmorage during childbirth and have other complications so that is why some doctors might say to loose weight.

Weight is to blame for everything. Instead of telling her that they.should have tried to help. I have 2 kids went to the clinic with both and will not go back. dr. I had cared more about money then fixing the problem to.start with

I went there with my first...I really like Dr Mullins...just didn't like the hospital...and I wasn't very fond of the staff at the clinic. I am pregnant with my 2nd and I go to Abingdon....there isn't a person there that I don't like.
