Dr. Philippa Brain's Ratings
As a high risk ob/gyn Dr.Brain is quite knowledgeable and her attitude reflects that, she's not one to accept others onions well. She is not personable at all and has horrible bedside manner. I ended up delivery my baby at 25.5 weeks gestation and when I was asking about pain relief methods during labour she replied, "your baby will be so small it'll just slide right out and you won't even feel a thing"... She seemed to lack compassion and be quite condescending if you questioned anything she said. I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone.
Dr. Brain has been my obgyne for almost 10 years. She has performed a minor surgery on me almost that long ago and most recently a full hysterectomy. Yes, it did take several months to get in to see her, but once you're in she takes very good care of you! Her bedside manner is very easygoing and she is both knowdgeable and sympathetic. I have had 2 other obgyne's over the years and neither of them made me feel at ease like Dr. Brain has. She is well worth the wait to get into and you will feel well-cared for once you do!
If you have fibroids, you do not want to see this doctor. Her knowledge is very limited when it comes to fibroids and she is too arrogant to admit it. I went to see her and left her office in tears. Thank God I went to see two other gynecologists who were both excellent. I have since had surgery and everything went excellent. The reason I took time to write this review is to help anyone who has fibroids. If you have fibroids, do not go see this doctor.
Have her for almost 10 years now and all I can say is that Im lucky to have her as my gynecologist. She's very caring, professional and compassionate. She has this confidence in her which makes it easy to trust in her knowledge and capabilities. I have couple surgeries done by her and she always does an amazing job. She really cares about her patients.
If Dr. Brain is your Doctor, YOU ARE VERY LUCKY. She was not my OBGYN, but during my twin pregnancy I had the pleasure to meet her. She examined me on every second visit to the hospital. At the end of my pregnancy, my boys were almost 14 pounds together. I had a very hard time to eat, sleep or take care of my 7 year old daughter. Since she always made me feel so good during my pregnancy, I turned to Dr. Brain to voice my concerns. Long story short. I had two healthy boys. Dr. Brain delivered them by C-section. I recovered from my surgery within 2 weeks. Until today I am so grateful for her. She is like a sunshine when she walks in to the room, always happy, very knowledgeable and blessed with amazing people skills.
Really liked her. I was having a difficult time pushing (~3-4 hours) and the other doctor had decided I cannot do it and asked the nurse to prep me for vacuum delivery when Dr. Brain came to check up on me and within 5 minutes delivered the baby normally. She was very encouraging, supportive and reassuring.
Dr. Brain has helped me through a very difficult time; after 15 years of being bounced from doctors to specialists to surgeons I was fortunate enough to get to see her purely by chance. She was referred to me as the surgeon that could perform a surgery I was told I needed as a result of MRKH Syndrome. My initial appointment with her elated me when she said I didn't need the risky & complicated procedure. She explained with exercises, determination & dilation therapy I could over come the condition on my own. I am one month into my at-home treatments & beside myself with joy that I can finally overcome this challenging condition! It has changed my life...I am looking forward to my follow up appts. with her, even if I wait an hour after my appt. time! Very compasionate, empathetic, understanding and supportive doctor!
