She is a wonderful doctor. I go to her and a friend of mine had the same surgery as you and other than being off work for awhile, she was in good shape. She really is an excellent doctor.

went to her and Angie, angie told me a LAVH would settle all my problems. Dr. land told me i did not need my ovaries. WRONG! she did my LAVH, did not give me alternative, like ablation. LAVH sent me into menopause, depression! The position they put me in to do the operation caused on going back pain.
i also had granulation tissue that had to be treated.
Angie told me to get a General Doctor! I don't recommend them! I was healthy before she got hold of me.

I would not recommend gina land to even see you for a general visit. When i was pregnant with my son and new to richmond i went to see her. I was having dizzy spells and stayed sick...she put me on a heart moniter. She then did 4 ultrasounds told me that i was pregnant with twins and had lost one but still had the sac of fluids but no baby. Okay but i never bled so where did the baby go. i guess my body absorbed it. Well while admitted to the hospital with a heart monitor in place dr anthony smith walked to see his patient whom i shared a room with and he asked me what was wrong. He told me to come see him. He did one ultrasound and realized that the "twin" was actually a fluid filled tumor. that the famous dr. Land missed or overlooked..lol He removed the tumor when i was 4 months pregnant. My son is now a healthy 2 year old thanks to Dr. Smith. So I would get a second opinion if i were you.

I was just having a period 2 weeks out of the month and some ovary pain. I later found out I did not need the LAVH. They pretty much said it would help me. I believed them! I was very energetic and now I am not. Hormones all messed up, she told i did not need them. what a mess.back pain,blood clot... and they turned their back. she got her $$$$ and thats all she cared about.

I had female canncer when i was 15 years old. I was a patient of Dr. Spurlin, they done a dnc and removed the cyst on my organs. and told me that i could not have kids because of this. About 2 years later I went to Dr. Land and was pergant! I really like her bedside manner and she explained everything to me to the point that i understood. I lost the baby in my 5 month. but it was nothing she did, it was thast the cancer came back. but when i was 18 i got pregnat again and went back, had a wonderful 9 months and she was there for everything. i really like her but i have no use for the rest of them. since i then i have hysterecotmy and my horomones are going crazy! and suffering with alot of problems.my sone is a healthy 16 year old and a mircle baby! good luck !!!

I felt that Dr. Land was very professional and empathetic to all my needs. I saw her throughout my whole pregnancy and she was even there when my son was born. Despite the pain, I was happy to see her. People are going to have different opinions because of different experiances. My suggestion is to try her out, you could do worse.

i used work at pattie a clay, and i have heard good things about dr. land. i personally go to dr. gordon, he has been a very good doctor to me. dr.land i think used to be with dr. gordon's practice. there is one i didn't like in dr. gordon's office, it was cause of his bedside manner sucked, i don't think he is there anymore, but dr. smith is a good doctors is a great doctor. he delivered my friends second baby.

when i was pregnant with my first son i was i was 14 and went to dr Spurlin. i was in labor for almost 15 hours and had to have an emergency C-Section... worst pain of my life!! we both came thru fine but she told me if i even got pregnant again i would never give natural childbirth. i got pregnant the next year (on birth control) and went back to her and she just scheduled me for yet another C-Section!!! 2 years later (on birth control!!) i went to Gina Land... i told her i could not deliver naturally and she said "WHY NOT??" I told her what spurlin said and she laughed!! I had my daughter naturally!!!!! it was beautiful!! then again 4 years later with my son (AGAIN on Birth control!!!!!) i gave birth!! so Gina Land is great in my book!! she is very wise and thorough! i WOULD recommend her HIGHLY!!

And you don't want to go to smith he about killed my daughter....they had to go back in two days later to get the bleeders he left....after leaving Patty A. Clay of which I wouldn't take my dog to she ended up at Central Baptist for over a week. My advice would be to go to someone in Lexington.

She delivered my daughter. My placenta tore during delivery. She said everything was fine. I hemorrhaged two times in the next two weeks. Then had a d and c three weeks postpartum. She literally destroyed my uterus during the d and c. I hemorrhaged again after returning home and went back to the er that night after this procedure After 6 months of bleeding and not starting my period after I finished breast feeding, I went to other docs. Finally found a specialist at UK for Asherman's syndrome . He said I was one of the worst cases he had ever seen. It is a syndrome that develops because of surgery. My entire uterus was scarred shut even my cervix. After multiple surgeries to remove some of the scar tissue I spot each month. No chance of ever having kids again. Come to find out, all this could have been avoided if they had done a manual check to see if anymore placenta was inside of me after it tore during delivery. It could have been removed and all this would have been avoided.This is standard procedure when a placenta tears. This was not done. Her concern at each doctor's visit was poor at best. She just wrote me off and kept telling me I would be better in time. I would never recommend this doctor. I truly hope that this will help someone avoid anything similar to my experience. So important to be aware of your docs.
