Ratings for Dr. Edwin C. Radke
I have never had any issues with Dr. Radke- I've requested him a few times! Yes, the office is pretty much always busy, but that's only to be expected. All of the doctors are usually in a rush, and if I have no issues or questions, the appointment is over in a heartbeat. But any time I have had any questions, he has always been able to answer them fully, and even scheduling ultrasounds, blood tests and pelvic exams all on the spot if I didn't feel fully comfortable with how I felt me or my baby were doing. I usually prefer a female gynecologist, but hes quite honestly one of the first male gynecologists I've been completely comfortable with.
I was not a patient of Dr. Radke, but rather another physician in the practice. When my water broke early, I went to the hospital and he was on call. I had never met him before and he barely spoke to me before I went in to have an emergency C-Section. He made me feel ridiculous for asking a few questions as I was nervous, with his could not be bothered attitude. As we went into the operating room, they began the procedure. He had great difficulty getting the baby out and was EXTREMELY rough and VERY uncaring in his mannerisms. Once my daughter was born, they quickly took her out of the room and asked my husband to leave the room as I was in distress and he was having a very difficult time. He later informed me that he was giving it a few more minutes and he was going to have to perform a full hysterectomy on me!!! Thankfully, only being 30 at the time, that did not happen. Although the next day he came into my dark room while I was resting, never gave me a moment to even fully wake up and informed me how serious the labor and recovery was and his exact words to me were "YOU ARE DONE HAVING CHILDREN" he then told me that that is what he would tell his own daughter if he had one and if I ever tried to have another child- I would lose more than the baby. He then said "Good Luck, Take Care" and I never saw him again. I understand that/if he was trying to deliver a message and if he wanted to emphasize the risks, but I could not get over that bedside manner and the fact that he treated me as if I should have been lucky he was even speaking to me at all. That time was surely a moment I will never forget. Sadly, not for the reasons that I was hoping. The nurses were however wonderful.
Radke let me go 2 weeks over my delivery date. I was huge, uncomfortable and my baby weighed 9 lbs. I requested an Episiotomy if needed, one wasn't given when my son got stuck and Radke let me tear as the nurse climbed up on my bed and pushed both her hands into my stomach. I wasn't sewn up properly and still have issues to this day. He is the only thing that I regret about my pregnancy!!! My friend also had him and she wasn't thrilled either. I guess word of mouth would have prevented her regret. Stay away!!!!
This is one of the most uncaring physicians I Have ever been to. I was seen a couple of month age for pelvic pain. He was completely unsympathetic. He did reluctantly order an U/S. I had to call the office two week later for the results. There was no follow up appointment to see if my pain has resolved. I feel as though my problem was not taken seriously.. stay away from this so called doctor. He is one of the worst I have ever seen.
Dr. Radke is just about the most uncaring physician I have ever met. Being pregnant after having lost a child, Dr. Radke couldn't be bothered to address any of mine or my husband's concerns. When we went to the hospital to give birth (contractions 3 minutes apart), he strolled in an hour later and informed us that we were only 2 centimeters and it wouldn't be happening that day and to go home. When my husband protested and inquired about inducing the pregnancy to move it along, you would have thought we had asked him to cut off his hand. With a huff, he sent us home and told us to come back later that night and he would start the induction. We came back later that afternoon with our baby in fetal distress!! One emergency C-section later, our baby spent 3 days in NICU. Then my husband overheard him ask the nurse how this could have happened and she told him that I was over 5 centimeters! He NEVER apologized for anything or showed concern for our baby. DO NOT GO TO THIS MAN!!
