Ratings for Dr. Lesa J. Bethel Mulligan
I went to Dr. Mulligan for over 15 years. She as a doctor is knowledgeable and has delivered my 2 children by c section. The staff are the rudest people I have ever encountered and act as if they are killing themselves to have to help you out. I finally left that horrible place and went to someone that actually cared. Telling Dr. Mulligan didn't help. There was never a sincere apology at all. They could care less if they lose patients or not. Worst organization I have ever seen also. Will never recommend anyone going there.
Dr. Mulligan provides state-of-art minimally invasive options for major surgery. She is one of the few doctors trained on the da Vinci Surgical System. Not very often do you meet an individual with the passion, dedication, and enthusiasm for patient care as Dr. Lesa Mulligan. Dedicating her life to others while caring for a family of her own, Dr. Mulligan is what I consider a DYNAMIC woman.
She was constantly late, uncaring, rude, and very unhelpful. I dreaded going in to see her and would rather go to the er than call her if something was wrong because she would ignore your concern. Every visit was very unpleasant, the nurses are jerks, and the wait is ridiculous. The only good comment I can say of her is that my son's birth went really well. DO NOT GO HERE. EVER.
Dr. Mulligan delivered my first baby, it was a vaginal birth so I had several stitched due to my needing an episiotomy. Although my pre-natal care was decent, I was constantly waiting LONG after my "scheduled appointment" time to be seen. However, my post-natal care was horrendous! I was in SEVERE pain, I was swollen up like a hot dog bun down there, and Dr. Mulligan AND her staff basically accused me of having an addiction to prescription pain pills because of my informing them that I was still experiencing significant pain 4 weeks AFTER having my baby. They told me I needed to come in so she could "look" at me before they could refill my prescription. While I was in the room waiting for Dr. Mulligan, I overheard her speaking to one of the nurses at the door saying "oh yes she's in pain" as if I was a fraud. Once I was spread eagle on the table and Dr. Mulligan started poking around, she hit something that hurt so bad I nearly jumped off the table. Dr. Mulligan said, "oh geez, I bet that is painful". Apparently, I was not stitched up properly to begin with and there was a huge gap that was not healing do to having gotten infected! So I leave with an antibiotic and pain prescription, and vowed to not EVER RETURN. Horrible way to treat a patient. Highly disappointed in the level of professionalism in Dr. Mulligan's office. BUT...they sure want your money! What a joke.
Dr. Mulligan is wonderful!!!! She saw us in two separate urgent appointments... On a Friday and Tuesday to boot! My mother was in a very scary situation where a prolapsed uterus was causing severe pain and a complete urinary obstruction. Dr mulligan took the time to listen and explain and give us all the options for repair. Her bedside manner is EXCELLENT and she is extremely patient and intelligent. I am a hard nosed ICU nurse and my recommendations do not come easily but this doctor is exceptional!!!
I wish I would have read these reviews on here before seeing this Dr. Now I am here to warn women that I REALLY do feel that Dr Mulligan pushes patients into having c-sections unnecessarily. What a selfish thing for any Dr. to do :( I got out right away, and I think everyone else should too, once she showed negative reactions to my desire for a natural birth and trying to use what I believe were fear tactics to make me more comfortable with a c- section.
My experience with Dr. Mulligan, who I went to for my first pregnancy, was nothing short of awful. As one of many examples, when I presented her with our birth plan, to openly discuss and receive any helpful suggestions on, she rolled her eyes and told us that having a birth plan was almost a guarantee of having a c-section (in her experience). Also, both of the times she checked to see if I was dilated or effaced, I was not, and she acted as though it was not good at all. That combined with how big my baby was measuring, she had me so scared that a c-section was inevitable. She also openly disliked that I did not want to be induced. In the end, I went a week and a half past my due date before I naturally went into labor and delivered my daughter vaginally. I was just thankful that Dr. Mulligan was out of town and did not deliver her. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone.
Dr. Mulligan is an extremely knowledgeable physician and I enjoy her wit. She's always been very nice and helpful. I am well informed about my health and have extensive knowledge in the healthcare field. However, some of the staff is not. The receptionist is just "okay" but the physician's assistant, NOT a PA but someone who assists the dr. with most likely a high school diploma only (not the old one, the new young one) is so unaware of medical procedures and processes, she should either attend outside training or be replaced. Mumbling half-@$$ed results over the phone and making "disagnosis" should be forbidden. Her diction and scanning of the results was more inappropriate than I have ever experienced. Although, she did send all results to me - where I found that she only discussed 3 of the many many "abnormal" results with me. DO NOT tell someone they have a health issue or poor diagnosis over the phone! One bright spot was "Claire" the office manager. Wonderful woman!
Ive been seeing Dr. Mulligan for the past 6 months, and if it wasnt such a stessful pain in the ars to switch doctors, i definitely would have by now. The receptionists are rude to you at one of the most sensitive times in your life, and once you get in to see the doc, she acts as if its not her job to care or let you know everything you need to know. Since its my first pregnancy, theres a lot that i wished she would have told me. DONT PICK THIS OB. Especially if youre pregnant. You want a doctor that does NOT add to your stress and wont talk to you like youre some kind of idiot. You want a doctor who wont treat your pregnancy like an unwanted job that she regrettably has to do.
