Dr. Jose De Lara's Ratings
Dr. De Lara was the doctor on call when I had my son. I was induced 2 times before my water broke. Although standard procedure is that baby should be out within 24 hours to prevent infection, for some reason Dr. De Lara made me wait for over 30 hours before he even came to check on me. At that point, I had a fever, and infection had set in. My son was in danger at this point, with possible infection, and his heart rate started increasing, resulting in an emergency c-section. The operating room was a revolving door, with the doctor performing one c-section after another, apparently this is his preferred method of delivering babies. Because I was induced 3 times, and made to wait so long before anything was done, a lot of blood had collected in my uterus, which caused me to haemorrhage very badly during surgery. I was left very pale, weak, and completely unable to care for my newborn son. My red blood cell count was dangerously low, but for some reason, the doctor decided to not give me a blood transfusion. Even though I had a very difficult and traumatic delivery, I was discharged 2 days later (although I was still extremely weak and could not even walk down the hall without holding on to the support railing). One week later, I was in the emergency room due to extreme fatigue and dizziness due to lack of blood. All of this while trying to take care of a newborn. Terrible experience.
Dr. De Lara delivered my baby boy emergency c section he was very comforting seeing as I only
Got to meet him 5 mins before the surgery. Over the next few days he checked up on me and made sure all my
Questions were answered! An amazing caring doctor and did a great job with the incision no infection and healing great!! My advice to other woman who have c sections keep it taped with paper tape for 6 months helps reduce scaring--advice
From a surgeon. Highly reccomend this doctor
I had a positive experience with him with my first born. Now that I am pregnant I considered going with another dr due to the crowded, stressful nature of his waiting room. But I have decided to go back to him because a really good dr is worth dealing with that. This time around I will be calling ahead before leaving for an appointment though. My only issue was the crowded room to wait in for sometimes 2 or 3 hours.
Dr. De Lara was wonderful. Always took time to answer questions and explain things. Although you knew he was busy, he took time for you. He was also very courteous and polite. I was fortunate that he was able to deliver the baby. And when it came time, he really took control of the delivery and staff which made me feel really comfortable that he had the entire situation in control (cord wrapped around baby's neck). My husband really appreciated that Dr. De Lara took control in the delivery room and was so confident. Thank you Dr. De Lara for your care!!
Dr De Lara is a very knowledgable and caring doctor. It was a pleasure to consult with him during the weeks leading up to my delivery.. Only had to wait a few times for an expended period of time. (Which the staff were always great to inform me of when I called ahead) My sons heart rate was lost midway during my labor, Dr D was in my room within SECONDS to assess the situation and make the call for an emergency c-section. Then to a moment to make sure I was okay and told me everything would be ok.. My son was born half an hour later in the OR. He was so crooked in the birth canal that they struggled even with forceps to get him out! But they did and we now have a very healthy young boy! I am so grateful to Dr D and can not imagine anyone not having great things to say about this man. During my hospital stay it was evident that he is VERY committed to his work and patients. At my 6 week checkup yesterday he remembered us distinctly and was kind and courteous, as usual. He discussed how my next pregnancy/delivery would be left in my hands in terms of how I choose to deliver. He will always give you a straight up honest answer and always willing to offer a bit of humor, too! We will definitely be going with Dr De Lara for any future children. He is like a member of our extended family now! :)
Dr DeLara is a very caring and compassionate doctor. Despite his very busy schedule, which is apparent by the wait time in his waiting room, he always took the time to answer our questions and would stay in the room until we were satisfied with the answers. It is very apparent that Dr DeLara is passionate about his work. We will definitely go back for our subsequent children.
Very difficult doctor to get in and see. He books multiple patients at the same time and has no plan for rescheduling patients when he has to leave for deliveries. I waited 8 weeks for an appointment only to be told I would have to wait another 5 for the rescheduled appointment. His staff is great but he needs to pay attention to how many clients he takes on if he wants to treat them all as they deserve.
If you are wanting a natural birth or a VBAC this is not the doctor for you! Prepare to be laughed at, talked down to and unable to make your own decisions. Also watch out for scare tactics. If you must see this doctor and you are wanting an unmedicated birth or VBAC then arm yourself with reputable research and be willing to fight for what you want. This doctor told me that my child and I would die if I even attempted a VBAC but here I am with my daughter who is healthy!
