Ratings for Dr. Stephen F. Gladdin
I have seen Dr. Gladdin since I was a teenager and he has performed surgery on not only me, but my mother. I unfortunately recently suffered a miscarriage and he came to hospital to perform a laparoscopy. First, he asked if he has even seen me before. Seriously!? I just saw you 2 months ago! He then made me suffer in pain for two days by not allowing anything stronger for pain, for my miscarriage. The nurses felt so bad they couldn't help me, NEVER again do I want to be anywhere near this doctor.
A friend of mine recommended Dr. Gladdin. I was very pleased with him at first, He was always straight to the point and always had good feedback for me. He consistently told me my pregnancy was very low risk and that he had no concerns. We moved out of state mid pregnancy, and I had to find a new Dr. My new Dr. suddenly had a bunch of concerns that were never addressed to me in the past. The biggest being my blood type. Dr. Gladdin ordered blood work, never discussed the results with me or called to tell me that the results were good/bad. He never even told me my blood type. My new Dr. showed me the paperwork from the lab in Elgin, showing what looked like chicken scratch for a blood type. She re-ordered the test and it turns out that I am an RH- mother. For all I know Dr. Gladdin didn't even look at my blood type or care that I would need to be a rhogam patient to protect my pregnancy. All I can say is I am so glad that I switched Dr.'s because I don't feel that he pays an ounce of attention to lab results.
EXCELLENT DR.! I am very happy with him! He deliver my first and third child and did an amazing job! Now I'm pregnant with my 4th child and he is defenantly going to deliver me! I recommended him to my two sisters that have been going to him and are really happy with him. If you are looking for an OB dr. that cares for you understands you and never rushes you he is the one!
When I read some of these comments, I honestly feel we must be speaking of different doctors. I have 5 children, and am pregnant with my 6 (and last). He delivered my 4th baby and he was the ONLY Dr. I would see during my pregnancy. He was WONDERFUL. My insurance changed and I had to change Drs. it was a heartbreaking decision! So my 5th baby was delivered by a different doctors group and it was horrible. I found out the Dr. Gladdin left his other practice and now took my insurance. It was the EASIEST decision to change back to him. I have NEVER met a Dr. as compassionate and truly cares about his patients! He has told me, night or day, if you need anything just call. I have had many OB/GYNs... and he is BY FAR the BEST!
