Ratings for Dr. Barbara A. Phelps-Sandall
Super professional, very friendly and so skilled and so upto date with all the modern medicine practises. It was a precious pregnancy for me at 32 years of age and i can proudly say that i was blessed to be Dr. Sandall Phelps Barbara's patient. Having worked with other OBGYNs and then shifting to Dr. Sandall makes me feel how blessed and lucky i was to finally come to Dr. Sandall. I was referred to her by my cousin who was Dr. Sandall's patient 15 years back and Dr. Sandall helped her to have a healthy baby with full term though there were few complications. She was very encouraging and very positive at each visit. Very motivating when you have questions. She encourages us to ask questions and patiently answers them. She sat with me during the first visits for ample amount of duration for me to understand what my and my baby's nutritional needs including daily protein and calcium requirements are and made things clear and easy for me. She even gave me handouts of what mandatorily has to be purchased organic. Her office Staff Misdy and other staff also is nice to work with when it comes to scheduling appointments or any other questions that we have. I have never had any billing issues. The billing office also is available for any questions we have. Once even when i was not able to get them on line immediately, by leaving a voice mail they called me back promptly. She encourages us to walk and do yoga and remain as fit as possible throughout pregnancy. At the same time, She put me on rest at the right time when she saw few lab work going overboard so that i can complete full 40 weeks of pregnancy term and i did complete full 40 weeks of pregnancy because of her advice. During the resting period, she told me to have a half an hour walk every day so that i can be prepared for labor too. During my labor, when i was tensed when my bag of waters broke. She assured that the baby was doing fine according to the heart beat monitoring. She encouraged me saying things were impressive and motivated me throughout the active labor phase for normal delivery. When you are in labor pain , you really need such words to keep going and Dr. Sandall did just that to keep you going positive. On my day of labor she was there at 02:00 AM in the hospital with another patient of hers and when my baby was delivered it was 10:30 PM in the night. Even with such long day she was full of energy and enthusiasm. It is really inspiring to see her full of energy all the time. My baby is a healthy baby because of prompt diagnosis and advice from Dr. Sandall. Be it giving me vitamin supplementation just as needed and required and advicing me healthy practices so that my baby can complete full term in pregnancy. I am really grateful to Dr. Sandall Phelps Barbara for helping me throughout my pregnancy journey. I can proudly say I am blessed to be her patient.!! We mothers need such doctors to help us sail positively throughout pregnancy and labor. !!
I love her! She is nice and will talk to you and treat you with warm hands and very gentel. I know her for about 10 years now and never had any problem with her. For a while I didn't like the service in the office (front dest, nurse ..etc'..) but I feel that they improve a lot. Sometimes I had to wait long time in the waitting room but other times I would be the cause for other people to wait and when I needed to go through a surgery they were all great and treated me like I was the only patient there! (and that's where you want them to step up - not at the regular check ups).
My first impression of Dr. Phelps was good. She appeared gentle and professional overall although sometimes she made me feel that my question was stupid. I’m fine with that as long as she can offer good quality work. However, the fact is just the contrary. In fact, it became my worst nightmare to choose Dr. Phelps as my OBGY. Dr. Phelps performed two D&C surgeries on me. The first one didn’t get everything out and the second one damaged my uterus. Her surgical ability is incompetent and her ethics is questionable. I wish I had switched doctor earlier. Dr. Phelps even didn’t explain to me why I had absent periods after the D&C. I think she probably wanted to avoid responsibility. I could have still been left in dark if I had not sought a 2nd opinion. I am now diagnosed to have Asherman's Syndrome and need to go through more surgery and hormone therapy. I just want to let others know about what I have experienced and be cautious when you select your OBGY.
I had to wait over an hour just to see her. The worst was that she put a false statement on my medical record. During the visit she showed us the baby's heartbeat. However, when my new doctor obtained my records from her, she notated that the infant's heartbeat was not detected!
I have been her patient for 2 years now. I think she is very helpful, soft spoken, and considerate. She gives a personal touch to every visit. She listens very patiently and answers every question you have. I am very much satisfied with her as my doctor.
