Ratings for Dr. Mandy L. Mitchell
I absolutely despise this woman. My regular OB was out when I gave birth with my first child, she induced me and before the induction got started well, she broke my water at 7 AM. Meaning that infection set in by the time I gave birth because I wasn't dilated at all when she broke my water. She said maybe it would help to do it. I pushed for 2 hours and was blacking out before she ever came in the delivery room. She told me my only option was the vacuum, in my delirious state I consented because I didn't know any better- 2 hours of pushing & a fever from the infection by this point. She said if we didn't do the vacuum, a c-section was needed because the baby was above my pelvis still. In less than 12 minutes after, the baby was born. I had pain for 2 1/2 years due to the trauma from that- she tore every ligament & tendon in my pelvis because she pulled him out before my body was ready. I couldn't walk for over a week and I had trouble sitting for months. When my baby was 2 months old, knots formed on his head as his skull began to harden from her using the vacuum. He now has permanent protrusions all over his skull. When I saw her for my follow up, she wanted to put me on the patch even though I told her I was nursing. She said it'd be fine, but when I got the prescription filled- it says on the box do NOT use when nursing. I called her back to tell her and she still insisted it was fine. Pharmacist disagreed with her and I didn't take it. When I called monthss after having the baby and still had so much pelvic pain, she told me I hadn't given it enough time and I'd be fine in a few weeks. She is a poor excuse for a doctor- don't go to her.
