Ratings for Dr. Manijeh Ghafourian
Manijeh made my pregnancy and birthing experience a breeze! She's very professional and knowledgeable and cares about her patients she made prompt referrals when needed, answered all the many questions I had and calmed whatever fears I had. Being a first time mum I totally got the midwife experience I desired and more. I'm so looking forward to having my second baby with her!!! I totally recomend her. Thanks a lot Manijeh!
Too bad there is no option of giving zero stars. One star seem to be too much for this "midwife". She is so unqualified that one wonders how she managed to get a licence. If you happen to have some problems with your pregnancy she won't recognize it and send you to real doctor, she will wait forever until it's too late to do anything. Avoid her at all costs.
I had two wonderful experiences with Manijeh. She was extremely knowledgeable and always made me feel like I was in the best of hands and very well cared for. She was supportive during both my pregnancies, deliveries and post partum care. By the end of our time with her, both my husband and I felt she was more family than midwife.
Manejh was very knowledgeable. However she had horrible bedside manner. She definitely did not give me the midwife experience that I was hoping for. I will not be using her for my next pregnancy. She was very impatient with me PP and I was so happy when my 6 week PP check up happened, because it mean I didn't have to see her again.
I had Manijeh for both my births and I think she is a great midwife! She is very knowledgeable and caring. She was always available to talk to answer any questions or uncertainties I had. I loved that she came to our house after the kids were born and she gave me a time range so I knew when she was coming. She has her own office now and sometimes runs late by a few minutes but what dr doesn't keep you waiting!! She tries to stay on time but sometimes patients need some extra attention and I completely understand. I have recommended friends to her and everyone has loved her too!
You will not get the kind of care you expect from a midwife from Manijeh. Grace is amazing but I only got to meet her a few times before she went on leave. Manijeh is the only MW at New Horizons Midwifery now and I wish I had trusted my initial instinct to switch care providers. Manijeh takes on way too many clients. Appointments are always late and are 30 minutes max. I had some appointments last only 15 minutes. I agree with the other reviewers that she brushes off your questions like they are nothing and doesn't bother to really explain anything. We never talked about my birth plan or much of how I was doing. Appointments consisted of her looking over my file for the first five minutes, taking my weight, Doppler, requisition for tests, occasionally remembering somethings she forgot for another patient and making notes for herself, and then booking my next appointment. No discussions about birth plan or what to do to prepare. And yes, she does talk about other patients to you which is awkward. After my daughter was born she pretty much stuck her on my boob and left without saying goodbye, she didn't work on latching with us. I had gestational diabetes and she wanted to discharge us after 8 hours even though my daughter's blood sugars were too low to be safe. We ended up staying in the hospital for a day and a half after I told her I didn't want to go home until my daughter was ok. Manijeh came to visit us at home two days later. She didn't give me a time, she just showed up at random with her own daughter because they were coming back from the ice rink. Manijeh couldn't even remember if I had a girl or boy or how much she weighed. She left after 15 minutes and said she'd be back the next day. Again she showed up at her convenience. I haven't seen or heard from Manijeh since my daughter was 4 days old. Please choose another healthcare provider for your pregnancy.
