Ratings for Dr. Elizabeth C. Podoba
I met Dr. Podoba 1 week after my daughter was born only after my incision from my c section got infected. She was not present at any time during any visit to her office during my entire pregnancy. She told the nurse to have the on call deliver my baby when she was called informing her I was in labor. Her bedside manner SUCKS!
This was the worst experience ever!! I tried her for the first time and she didn't even have all stocked supplies. She opened the door in the middle of my examination, with my legs open, to call the MA. She was not friendly and extremely unprofessional!!
I had my first appointment with her yesterday.It was the worst experience ever,I waited 1hr and 25 min to see her for 3min. She didnt greet me, just did the pap test and run out of the room. i was shocked for her lack of attention. She did ask me if i had questions or concern, like i said 3min, was how long whe was in the room with me. and also the pap kit was open the whole time i was there, it was placed on dirty graph paper that was taped to the counter top of the sink. She did put gloves on but didnt wash them, totally regret it. Please go with someone that cares for their patients and that is interested in your concerns and questions.

Do not use this doctor if you are pregnant! She acts as if her time is more valuable than yours, & made me feel like my concerns were not valid. I switched doctors at 31 wks and it was the best thing I could have done! Up until that point, every prenatal visit I had ended up being with the Nurse Practitioner, who is quite nice. The appointments that were with Dr. Padoba lasted all of two minutes...no smile, no how is everything, no how have you been feeling...just in and out...I don't even recall eye contact. Then, at 29 wks I ended up in the hospital due to some bleeding which turned out to be hemorrhoids, but after an hour of being monitored Dr. Padoba finally showed up,popped her head in and asked if I was in labor. I said no, I had some bleeding and her response was simply "Oh, well then we are sending you home." Didn’t check me, look at how the baby was doing, ask if I had questions or any other concerns...NADA! I was so scared when I saw the blood-and she seemed bothered!
Nice Office! Staff is very nice! Alot of women were in the waiting room which is a good sign. We were scheduled to see Dr. Podoba one day and she couldn' t make it because of an emergency C-Section which was good to hear because those situations warrant immediate action. It were were in the same situation we would expect the same sense of urgency. If she is busy she has a medical assistant that help out and gives very good advice with knowledge. The ladies behind counter were very nice and made us feel very comfortable. Unfortunately we had a miscarriage and if and when God Willing we were to get pregnant again we will defintely use her services again.
I am 21 years old. Dr. Podoba delivered me. My mother is her longest standing patient! When my pregnancy seemed to be a little oddIi went straight to Dr. Podoba, I was induced that night night due to severe pre eclampsia that my previous Dr did not notice, some how... Dr Podoba saved my life and made sure my son and I were completely healthy and safe the entire time! You do wait sometimes at her office BUT she is the most hands on Dr I have ever seen, she delivers her babies so yes when one of her patients is about to have their child, Dr Padoba is the one there to deliver! She postponed a surgery to deliver my son via emergency c-section and I wouldnt trade that for the world and Im more than ok waiting for her while she takes care of another patient like she did me! I live in VA but will be back in TX for every pregnancy I have! I trust Dr. Podoba with my life and my children I will have!
