Ratings for Dr. Norma Jean Fuelberth
This is late in being posted but I almost died because if this doctors negligence. I had been seeing her for years and had been complaining of pain and bleeding. I was a 50 year old overweight woman. She told me the cause was my weight. I had lap band surgery and had lost a significant amount of weight. However the pain and bleeding got worse. I went back to see her due to the pain. She seemed aggravated with me and said I needed to check my colon or something else because there was nothing wrong with my female organs. Mt husband pushed me to go to another doctor. I did go to a great doctor at baylor dallas. I almost cancelled the appt. Thank God I did not! Within 10 minutes she was concerned and did an internal sonogram and biopsy. The next day I got the news I had uterine cancer. Within 24 hours I had a ct and a pet scan and scheduled for a radical hysterectomy. On August 9 2010 I had the surgery. Not only did I have cancer, I had endemetriosis, numerous fibrous tumors, and cysts on both ovaries. My uterus was the size of a 12 week pregnant woman. I was so upset that I could not even contact Dr Fuel birth for a few months. I called and talked to her assistant and asked that Dr Fuel birth call me. I told her my intent was to make sure this didn't happen to anyone else. She never called and I heard later that she had shut down her practice and moved to California. I don't know if this is true. She didn't bother to schedule any additional tests other than the normal pap smear. I am writing this now as a form of healing. August 9 will be five years. Please if you happen to read this and have similar symptoms go get a second opinion. It saved my life.
I saw this Dr. one time for a gyn checkup. Her ofc staff discussed birth control and put me on depo even though it is not recommended for diabetics. I asked the Dr. about hot flashes I have been having for a couple of years and that I thought I was in peri-menapause. She asked if I was still having periods and when I said yes, she laughed at me and said if I was having a period, it didn't have anything to do with menapause. First off, everyone knows that peri-menapause symptoms can start years before your period ends, second, even if I ask a stupid question, do not laugh at me. The staff was rude when I asked them about a refund because they were overcharging my share for my depo shot. They stated they charge for ofc visit if Dr is in ofc regardless of if I see her. Now seeing another gyn who is great! Talks to me about my menapause symptoms and says he is not a fan of depo, particularly for diabetics. I am much happier with this Dr. and his staff who are very friendly and helpful.
I will never see this Dr. again. She delivered all three of my children but was extremely rude to me during my third pregnancy and so was her staff. She would not answer any of my questions and would not listen to me when I had concerns regarding my last pregnancy. She also kept inaccurate records and did not discuss my preganancy with the 2 others specialists I was seeing because the last pregnancy was considered High-Risk. I was very disappointed in her because during the past 13 years she has been an awesome dr and I have recommended her to some of my friends. Well not anymore.
My first mistake was to switch dr.s to her! This is my third pregnancy and Ihave had gestational diabetes with all. We went over my history on the first appointment so she knew everything. She didn't check me for gestational diabetes till I was 6.5 months. She changed my due date 4 times, and now I am back to my beginning due date. So needless to say I am 34 weeks and my baby is now weighing 8.5 lbs. She should have been monitoring his size and put me on meds for the diabetes before last week. Ugh. The staff is rude! If I haven't already paid so much money I would def. see someone else.
I find it diffcult to read these reviews. This has been my ob/gyn for 15 years. She spent PLENTY of time with me yesterday at my appt discussing options for my heavy periods. She has a very dry sense of humor and I honestly hope the folks on here have just misunderstood her. She has always taken excellent care of me through having my babies and now later in my life I wouldn't see ANYONE else!!
Dr. Fuelberth has been my OB/Gyn for 15 years and has cared for me during my three pregnancies. Her staff is efficient and helpful and always kind. Dr. Fuelberth is very knowledgable and has always spent as much time as necessary to explain and answer questions. She is very caring and easy to talk to. She has a very laid back manner and is not an alarmist. She and her staff have always either taken phone calls or gotten back to me in a very timely manner. I have only had to wait once and that is because she was delivering a baby. She had her priorities exactly where they should have been.
