Ratings for Dr. Antoinette L. Ham
horrible experience with dr ham, she convinced me that i needed a c section bec my labor was not progressing and in truth i was progressing. I found out that she lied when i went for my follow up appointment and the nurses told me that i had progressed 2 cm more than she said. She used bullying tactics and threatened that i would die and that my baby would die if i did not have a c section although there was no medical reason for her to say these things. The other doctors in the practice even apologized since based on my chart they could not figure out why she did not allow me to deliver naturally. I would recommend staying far away if you are looking to have a vaginal birth since she clearly likes cutting people open
I've been a patient of hers a number of years, including birth of my baby. She is knows what she does and a nice person, BUT the appointments with her became VERY rush-rush. Each appointment she forgets something : mentions I need a test and forgets to give the script; runs out of the room before answering my question; talking about what blood work is going to be done and then a couple of items are not ordered etc. Last appointment she forgot two things - Rx and items on blood test. I'm very annoyed by that now and will be switching to a diff doc soon . Also, there is usually at least 30 min wait time - even though the appointments are so rush. The call back nurse is nice, until you have any questions/issues about something they did not do right (asking about where is that missing test Dr Ham said will be done etc). So, if you have no issues and just a simple yearly appointment, then I would see why the good reviews. If you have more complicated issues - look for some other doc. I think other docs in this office are way less rush-rush during the appointments, but they are all male and wanted a female doc.
Dr Ham is awesome! She delivered my son via C-section she did a great job, very little scaring. Dr Ham is so caring and funny! I love her sense of humor, and her ability to put me at ease during a scary situation. The office staff is amazing. I go to the Manalapan office and no one is better than Karen! She is soo sweet and always calls back immediately even for the sillest questions.
I am a new patient at this office and so far i've seen dr.Ham at least 5 times and she seems great and very easy to communicate with. this office has several other doctors that are also great and very friendly but dr.Ham is the only female doctor here so I feel extra comfy discussing womanly issues and she gives sufficient amount of time.
I have been a patient here for about five years. I have had to wait an average of 60-90 minutes after my appointment time to be seen. Dr. Ham never apologizes for being late. Regular and trans-vaginal ultrasounds ordered during the past 3 visits for no stated reason. Spoke to several other patients from this office, and apparently this is a common practice (unnecessary ultrasounds). At first I was scared about why I even got the tests ordered in the first place, but now it seems like a way to get easy, extra reimbursment from insurance companies. I am finding a new OB/GYN before my next visit. Also, the call-back nurse is nasty and patronizing.
I am currently looking for a new OB dr. I've had some bad experiences at this office. She is rushing throughout the examination and I feel like unnecessarily scared me with certain possible scenarios. Also, if you have Cigna be careful because they have some kind of contract with them where they wont do your OB ultrasounds in the office, you have to go somewhere else. a fact I didn't find out until I was pregnant. :(
Dr. Ham was very thorough, respectful, and knowledgeable. She took her time with me and has an excellent bedside manner. I am totally shocked at all these bad reviews, as Dr. Ham was nothing like these other people have described. I have not seen any other docs in this group yet, but I am hoping that they are equally fantastic!
She kept me waiting 40 minutes but rushed the entire appointment. As a pregnant patient I felt very frustrated getting brushed off so quickly. I was in the middle of asking her a question as she was already walking out of the exam room with my chart to bring to the front desk! Also, poor communication and extreme confusion with the front desk staff about scheduling the next appointment. I prefer the other docs in the practice instead.
