Ratings for Dr. Faith A. Brosch
Dr. Brosch, well before I write most everything let me give you a quick synopsis. I don’t know what she was like earlier in her career, but I can tell you she is the epitome of an older doctor that seems bothered to have to come see her patients, talks down to her patients, and gives that attitude that she is much better than you. So, in short, pick another doctor, you will be sorry if you stay with her…. Now for the rest of the story… Dr. Brosch works with midwife Michelle Pelton. Pelton is competent and unfortunately must get approval many times from Brosch to get things done. Unfortunately, Brosch will not support Pelton and will feel as if she knows better even though Brosch never talks with or sees the patient. I constantly hear of Pelton doing damage control and making excuses for Brosch’s behavior and non-action. Pelton will tell you that Brosch has a strange way of showing it, but she really cares about her patients and is a brilliant doctor. I’m sorry, but Brosch’s days of being brilliant are past and she seems more concerned with life and the whole doctor thing is getting in the way. Why would I say such things about Dr. Brosch? Well I had a C-section that was done by Brosch. I know there is a chance of complications, and I know if I didn’t have a negative experience I would not be taking the time to type this. But there is a level of care and patient consideration that needs to be done so the team can properly take care of the patient. Unfortunately for me I developed complications with my C-section that occurred on Thursday and when Pelton suggested I have a CT Scan on Thursday Brosch knows better (never seeing me) and just started me on medicine. My condition worsened and now we are into the weekend…God help you if you have additional problems on the weekend. Brosch, who was supposed to be the primary, was not made aware of the issues and the on-call resident would not even come to the room. The nurses are fantastic. They would help me and suggest things that maybe should be done to help me. They suggested on Friday, why hasn’t infectious disease been consulted. I didn’t know what that was but when I researched it I learned they could be very helpful for my case. I suffered all weekend, with the stay the course, I’m Dr. Brosch I know best and don’t want to be bothered. Magically on Monday morning when my condition had continued to worsen I had Brosch, and two other doctors in my room wondering what was wrong. It was nothing new, and it should have been addresses on Thursday evening, but if not then, certainly Friday. But no, it wasn’t until Monday morning. How about Dr. Brosch’s bedside manner. She is certainly not a person that would ever tell you there are no dumb questions. If you ask Brosch a question about YOUR CARE, she takes it as you are questioning the ever-knowing Dr. Brosch and talk down to you like you are so beneath her and how dare you question her. Yes, I didn’t go to medical school and I’m sure you have a bigger house and drive a nicer car, but that doesn’t give you the right to speak to me that way. I’m a human being that doesn’t feel confident in a doctor that is making decisions with my care without ever seeing me. Why would I spend so much time typing this? I’m one of those people that pay attention to critic’s reviews and now I will pay attention to doctor reviews. If I’m someone that had a very negative experience with a Doctor (Brosch in this case) please make the personal decision and pick another doctor that will care about you, your care, and treat you like a human being. Don’t make the same mistake I did.
In 2012 I had twins with Dr. Brosch and she was wonderful, she was not only helpful but very kind. Even after the birth every time she saw the boys and I she stopped and talked to us. She was the best doctor I could ever ask for. I saw some negative comments below and I have found in my life that people only comment negative things and forget about all the positive. I know personally she cares and does talk to you about your birthing plan. She also encourages breastfeeding, she explained to me all of the benefits and every time I saw her she asked me how I was doing with it, and kept encouraging me to "keep it up". She is a wonderful doctor, she is experienced and she has children of her own. Thank you Dr. Brosch you made my pregnancy smooth, Jaxson and Vincent also thank you :) (the twins)
This doctor showed no sensitivity whatsoever. When I was in my last trimester I wanted to discuss my birth plan with her and the epidural. I told her I wanted to make sure she would not be reducing the epidural while I was in labor as some doctors do to try to speed up the delivery and she replied that labor is not supposed to be pain free. She didn't care at all about my wishes or feelings. When I got visibly upset at her response she just repeated what she said. I always felt rushed and uncomfortable asking questions. I switched doctors in my third trimester. I do NOT recommend anyone go to her.
Dr. brosch delivered my second son in 2006 and what a vast difference it was than my first obgyn doctor! It was like going from the best doctor to the worst, dr. Bosch being the worst. She rushed through every prenatal visit always asking me if I had any questions over her shoulder as she exited the examining room. This attitude carried into my delivery. She rushed me through my contractions, telling me to push constantly, not with the contractions as my first doctor had done. This resulted in excessive tearing requiring several stitches and much pain after delivery for years afterwards. I've never felt the same since! And after my son was delivered he had three wounds on the top of his head where Dr. Brosch scraped him while breaking my water!! The delivery nurses were not pleased with her, nor was I! I tell everyone looking for an obgyn NEVER to go to her !!!!!
Dr. Brosch has rushed me in an out of every appointment and recently when I started asking questions regarding epidural use and administration she blew off my questions by responding that "labor is a job and there is no pain-free labor." I felt terrible and cried as soon as I got to my car. I've since read other reviews on this site that share very similar complaints. My husband is going to my next appointment with me and if she does not open up dialogue with me I'm going to have to switch doctors in my 7th month of pregnancy. I wish I'd started asking questions earlier.
I agree with others on punctuality. But I chalk that up to the amount of patients she has and the office scheduling. Dr. Brosch was my obgyn for my second son. While she was very "to the point", she did answer all of my questions and made my delivery a smooth one. I also miscarried recently and she was very compassionate, giving me any information she had, and encouraged me to try again. I just found out I'm pregnant again, and have every intention of using Dr. Brosch.
Horrible bedside manners. I always felt rushed and like she never wanted to answer my questions. I actually switched to a different Doctor within the practice (Liarakos) and I love him. She was so rude during the delivery process and made the entire experience a nightmare. Barely said 2 words to me and didn't want to come over from the office to help deliver even though I was 100% thinned out and 10 cm. I hate it! PLEASE find another ob-you won't regret it.
Dr B is the GREATEST.So down to earth and a good lady!I have been through severe endometriosis which resulted in a total hysterectomy at 31.Thank God I had three babies before that.SHE DELIVEDED ALL 3.She is amazing , compassionate(cried with me at times) ,and VERY knowledgable!Im not sure the few of you who rated her poorly had the same Dr B????I have been a patient 12 years..THANKS DR B!!!!!!!
She delievered my baby because she was the on call doc. I never meet her before. I will never have another child thats how horrible she was. I asked for pain medicine she said "you are going to at least experience an hour of labor" she didn't show up again until an hour before the baby was born.
