12/05/14 5 5 1 1 I was a patient of Dr. halls for 14 years. Over the years his personality has gone down hill, he never seems to have enough time or Patience for his patients. Dr. Hall delivered two of my children and with my second child I felt very rushed and pressured into having pit. The last straw was when I got pregnant with my third child and had complications which resulted in my miscarriage. That was a very traumatic experience for me and the way he handled it made me feel like I was just another problem or pay check. He had no compassion, no empathy, nothing. I also didn't like that he sends you across the street for the ultrasounds and then talks to you over the phone regarding your results, very very very unprofessional. I will never go back to him again and do not recommend him to anyone.  Respond

11/10/13 5 5 5 5 I used doctor hall for both of my children's births. My first child was born when i was 16 years old and he made me feel secure and less stressed as being pregnant at 16 is a very scary thing. his team and himself were beyond helpful and even when i called at 2 am about tiny questions they were always willing to answer my questions and help. and with my son he was just as helpful and professional.  Respond

11/10/13 5 5 5 5 This man was born to deliver Babies. Basically a Godsend. Very caring takes time to explain any questions you might have. He's been my OBGYN for 18 years. Delivered 2 of my 4 kids. Even gave me his home and cell number to call in case of an emergency. While awaiting very important test results (which he received late in the evening) He still took the time to call and give me the good news within an hour of receiving them at 9pm. I now have a healthy 8 year old..There's no other doctor I trust more. He also delivered both of my grand children. He has a great way of dealing with young and nervous mothers. Calms them right down. I have been to other OBGYN's (while he was on vacation) And NONE OF THEM COMPARE.  Respond

30/04/12 4 3 2 2 After going with my wife to appointments while expecting are first child I was impressed with Dr. Hall. He seemed friendly, caring, and knowledgeable. After the first couple of visits he became rude and arrogante. After the baby was born my wife had an infection where she had her c section. My wife called his after hours pager and got no response from Dr. Hall for 1 1/2days. She finally called the office and talked to a nurse there. The more you get to know Dr. Hall the more you see what an uncaring person he is. If you question him on things he says or want to know more he turns into a different person. Very sorry we ever went to see Dr. Hall in the first place. We are currently going to another OBGYN this time around.  Respond

14/04/12 4 4 1 2 I went to Doctor Hall for my 1st baby. In the beginning he seemed ok even though I had heard some negative things about him. After a while I started to feel like I was just another paycheck to him. Every single concern I had he brushed off, and some were serious concerns to other doctors, I think he is bored with regular deliveries and he should only perform surgeries. My Water broke in his office and they told me it wasn't my water, as a huge puddle of water was under me. It was my 1st pregnancy and looking back I'm not a doctor and I even knew it was my water that broke. I eventually went to the hospital on my own and thank goodness my baby girl is fine but what they did was unacceptable. He is not the right doctor for you if you want your doctor really involved at all in your pregnancy and delivery. The sad thing about it is I loved their staff and thought they are great for my yearly exams but I would never go back if I got pregnant again!!  Respond

02/04/12 5 5 5 5 I am very pleased with Dr Hall, his PA -Stacy and all of their staff. I are very knowledgeable and if they do not know the answer, they will research it and let you know. Everyone is extremely caring and polite. It is wonderful to go into an office that makes you feel at home and knows your name and goes above and beyond for you. Dr Hall has delivered all of my children and has done all my gynecological surgeries. He has helped me tremendously. I have been to other OBGYN's in town and they do not compare to Dr Hall, Stacy or their staff. I sincerely hope he NEVER retires or moves. I cannot see myself going to any other Dr. Not only has Dr Hall helped me with my female problems, but several other medical issues. He has given me wonderful advice and has never steered me wrong. It may not be the answers I've wanted to hear, but it's been the right and honest answers. His PA, Stacy, is amazing. She knows her stuff! I like that she is knowledgeable when it comes to nutrition! Amazing office!

02/03/12 3 4 1 1 Four days before I delivered my son I was having some watery discharge. The next morning when I went in to see him he examined me, sent me home telling me it was not amniotic fluid and that my cervix was still closed. That night I began having contractions and the following morning went into active labor. When I arrived at the hospital at about 1:30 pm I was 2 centimeters dilated and my blood pressure was very high. I had the epidural and my progression slowed drastically. The doctor didn't order my pitocin drip until 4am the next morning. He showed up 15 minutes before I delivered my son and did not address me until after he was born. It turned out my son had pneumonia at birth. When I saw Dr. Hall's records from my delivery he stated that I "delivered a healthy-appearing male infant." My son's lungs were full of fluid, his breathing was irregular, and blood oxygen low. How is this considered healthy? I believe now that he did not do a thorough enough evaluation when he sent me home.  Respond

08/02/12 5 2 2 4 Dr. Halls PA Stacey is very nice and helpful. I had my first prenatal visit with her and it went really well. My second visit was with Doc. Hall and I didnt enjoy my experience at all. He wasnt very personable and was very rushed. I switched doctors after that visit. He seemed okay but not for mothers that want to do things more natural or unmedicated.

04/11/11 5 5 5 5 At 28 weeks I was diagnosed with velamentus cord insertion. A large local group of OBGYN said not to worry but after some research I realized it could be very dangerous for my unborn child. So after multiple attempts to get answers with the large local group (answers I never got) I switched to Dr. Hall who was very proactive in monitoring and making sure my baby made it safely. Now with my second pregnacy he has seen me since the beginning and provided excellent care.

24/10/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Hall has been my OB/GYN for 22 years. He delivered my last 2 kids. He is excellent. Available at all hours. Delivers all the babies himself, without trading off with other drs. Now when I go in, I see his Physician Assistant, but if I wanted to, I could see him.  Respond

27/12/07 5 5 5 5 Dr. Hall was very careful with my pregnancy. When my blood pressure got a little high he followed us even more carefully. He made sure we had a healthy baby and he let me do things my way, as long as it didn't endanger me or the baby. He was very careful at stitching me up, "putting me back together the way God intended" unlike some other docs, who just do a half-ass job and make recovery all the more difficult. His staff is wonderful! All the nurses have been there forever and all of them are great. The receptionist is friendly and learns your name. I've been to other OB's, but Dr Hall is the one I want to deliver all my other babies. We're even putting off moving until after our next child so he can be our doctor.  Respond
