Dr. Erin Bader's Ratings
Dr. Bader is knowledgeable and in general did a good job on performing a laparoscopy for diagnosis of Endometriosis - my scars healed well and I was able to conceive a few months later. However, the aftercare provided by her and her office was terrible. The unpleasant experience started with being written a Doctor's note by one of her nurses that was dated wrong month. I was experiencing pelvic pain after the surgery (well after the expected recovery period) and contacted her office to see if it was normal. I never had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Bader directly. Her receptionist just relayed onto me that the dr. Says it is probably just mensural pains. I insisted that it was different, that the pain was more intense and I had to go urinate often. I was simply told to "go to the ER" if it gets worse, otherwise they will see me at the 6-week follow-up appointment. My health concerns were not taken seriously whatsoever. I went to my family doctor and it was a urinary tract infection, which arose after the surgery. I ended up suffering from a UTI for over 3-weeks because of the lack of response to my concern. I trusted Dr. Bader to perform the surgery...but ended up being disappointed by how my well-being was disregarded once I was hurried out of the day-surgery ward. I switched to a different obgyn for my pregnancy.
I went to see Dr.Bader for a pregnancy, but when I entertained the idea i'd like a VBAC or trial of labor, she rudely laughed in my face and said I don't think so, also almost forced me into getting my tubes tied. I really wanted to at least TRY for a VBAC, so I switched drs at 32 weeks to Dr.Mayo, best choice I ever made, he heard me, told me straight out I had had a 65% success for a VBAC, he never scared me but told me all my risk HONESTLY, and didn't laugh at my idea. Needless to say, I GOT my successful VBAC, and i'm now pregnant again after 18 months and planning a VBAC. I really found Dr.Bader to be really cold.
I would highly reccommend Dr. Bader, she has been my OB through my last three pregnancies not including three miscarriages. She is kind, knowledgable and has went out of her way to make me feel comfortable in every situation. I wish she was my family Doctor! I wouldn't want to deliver a baby without her!
I have had ongoing issues for years and nothing was ever solved by my family doctors. Finally when I wanted to get pregnant, I had some routine testing done where it was discovered I was in a precancerous stage of endometrial hyperplasia. When I moved from my home province, I was referred to Dr. Bader and I am so happy that I was. Not only is she nice and pleasant, but I leave her office after every appointment without confusion. She takes the time to talk to me and discuss any issues she has found, or any issues I may have noticed. She also has alot of interns, and while you may be called into one of her examination rooms on time, you end up waiting - it is a good wait though because she is catching them up to speen on your case. Also, she or her nurse will ask first if I mind the intern coming in and will take the time to introduce me to them. I like her, and will continue seeing her. One day I hope to get pregnant, and she will also be my OBGYN of choice!! I recommend her!
im a teen mom, i went to see her with my mom we felt that she was no help at all, she was very rude and i found her rasist, she was talking back about my Family physician, he is great compaired to her, she told me she wouldnt be there for the babys birth, and that if i didnt want to deliver at the Alex i had to leave right 'now' .. and she told me that my baby was to small to feel at 29 weeks.. so she wouldnt touch my stomach to see where the babys sitting.. when 2 other doctors at my Family physician told me shes head down, she really didnt have anything to say, i felt very uncofortable, her Nurse was very nice and helpfull.. i was looking forward to seeing a nice OB, i never went back there after that.. and wouldnt recommend her for either TEENS or anyone else!!
I saw dr. Bader for my 1st pregnancy. I think she is a knowledgeable doctor and she did what she had to do (referred me to other doctors, did extra tests, etc.) but I honestly didn't feel any connection to her at all. I know she is busy but I felt like a number to her. I was considered high risk so I had so many appointments with her and other doctors she referred me to. I felt more connection and security with the other two doctor she referred me too than to her. My delivery day she was no where to be found. My husband never even got a chance to meet her. I don't think I will go back to her for my second pregnancy.
Dr. Bader makes me feel uncomfortable at times I totally love the nurse that sees you to the room she seems to care more than Dr. Bader herself, yes she is giving me the treatment and tests I need but she leaves me with more questions than answers.
