Ratings for Dr. Ross J. Valone
I have. Even going to this doctor for approximately 5 years. I never had any complaints until this year. I've called into the office 3 months in a row to get my prescription refills sent to the pharmacy and still have not been able to receive my prescription! I've been in severe pain from my menstruation these past few months and I am not happy. I'm considering switching doctors.
Dr. Valone delivered my daughter in 2006. The experience was great. The staff was absolutley amazing. Once in a while the wait time was a little long, but overall I was satisfied. I'm now on my second child 7 years later & am going back to Dr. Valone. He has been great. When I have questions, he never makes me feel stupid. All in All I have enjoyed Dr. Valone & his staff :)
My check-ups were great due to his nurse, I had to drive 45 minutes to see him for maybe 5 minutes. When it came to my delivery I went in for an appointment after my due date and he told me to go to the hospital that night so I could be induced in the morning. He came to the hospital that next afternoon and was confused as to why I was there because he had to be in court. Come time for me to start pushing he was there but rushing so he could make it to court. I believe his rushing is what caused me to get a 4th degree tear because my baby was fairly small. The thing that topped it all off was as he went to leave he made a comment about hoping he didn't get thrown in jail for missing his court.
We switched to doctor valone, I regret that. We found out the day before the THIRD induction that he had a plane ticket to Vegas. He claims that it was all for a high blood pressure scare.. every nurse in the hospital waw furious that we where there. Her blood pressure was good. So we got induced three times. So the doctor could goto las Vegas. We missed the due date by 30 minutes. I'm very angry with this doctor. He endangered the life of my child and my wife to go on vacation. I've talked to several former patience of his and I get the same story.. he induced them. He is arrogant. We got to his office. We waited and waited and waited. He was sitting at his computer playing with pictures. He finally came in for 5 minutes. Didn't answer our questions. Tryed to make us sound like idiots and then he left. I truly think this doctor needs his lisence pulled. All of these story's of him inducing labor for his convenience. Is wrong and unethical. His bed side manner will anger any husband!
I just delivered my baby by Dr. Valone. This was my 3rd delivery, 1st by Dr. Valone. He was awesome. This was the best delivery I have had. All through the pregnancy he was on top of the complications I had and answered all of my questions. He always had time for me. On the day I delivered he delivered my baby even though his colleague was on call because he knew how much it meant to me to have the same doctor deliver as treated me. I can't thank him enough for giving the best birth experience, being open to all of my suggestions during the birth, and helping to bring my beautiful baby boy into the world. He is the best OB I have had hands down. THANK YOU!!! I would recommend to anyone who wants personalized and compassionate care.
I love Dr Valone, I'm 30 years old and he is the only OBGYN I have ever gone to and will ever go to. He has delivered both of my children 10 and 6 and will deliver the baby I'm pregnant with now. He always listens to me, asks how my children and my mother and father are doing (he's her doctor too) etc. Susie, his nurse, is the most amazing nurse I have ever met and so very attentive. Overall, I have never had any complaints about him or the services I receive from him!
He has taken all of my questions and concerns about this pregnancy and in regards to previous pregnancies with knowledge and understanding. Has answered all of my questions until I felt that I was comfortable with his answers. Yes, he does seemed busy but if I have a question or concern he always makes time for me. He was fully ready to help with either an epidural delivery or a non-medication delivery as I have had both with previous pregnancies. Very knowledge, caring, people both him and his staff. A+
The best part about him is his nurse, she is awesome. He is ok, if you want a quick painless visit he's perfect. If you have tons of questions, I'd look else where. He never really explained anything but he always adressed my concerns. I would probably go to him again.
horrible experience! i also found him to be patronizing and rude. my concerns were always put off and when i asked questions he made me feel stupid. this was my first child and feel sad i allowed a dr to make me feel this way. my visits were usually less than 5 minutes even though i lived an hour away. he told me at 37 weeks baby was head down and ready to go, the next night i ended up going to hospital with contractions and my baby was frank breech. he seemed to have no concerns with this. he attempted to discharge me a day early from the hospital. staff informed me with a csection i was to stay another day. overall experience with him was awful.
At my first visit i waited for over 30 mins & when he came in i thought this was going to be amazing! Seemed so nice & caring! Then started to talk to me about how bad of a choice i was making for maybe wanting a home birth, or to go to a birth center. Made me feel completly terrible for baby the baby at risk & told me, & I quote, "I had a zero percent chance of having a natural birth!" That there was medicine that i was going to need. Overall, i feel not all mothers want the same thing for their birth plan, & he should respect everyones individual wants & needs.
