Ratings for Dr. Kristine A. Bathke
When I called Dean to get an OB/GYN appointment once I figured I was pregnant, I randomly got Dr. Bathke as she was available on my preferred date (I had no particular recommendation from anyone to choose a physician); and how lucky I was! Dr. Bathke and her team made my pregnancy so much bearable. She is extremely intelligent and well-mannered, and carefully listens to her patients. She talked about my options during different stages of pregnancy and was always supportive to my choices. Her PA Cary Liebl, who saw me in those weeks when Dr. Bathke was not available and the nurses were very helpful too. Visiting Dr. Bathke's office was the only good thing that I could look forward to during the later stage of my pregnancy. I would highly recommend Dr. Bathke to anyone.
Dr. Bathke is amazing. I had traumatic experiences with two ob's near me and the travel to see her is worth it! She was wonderful with my older daughter and I love that she shared her experiences and made me feel so comfortable. I can't wait to get pregnant again to see her often again. Monika the nurse was also wonderful and my oldest daughter adores her! Just a wonderful experience!
I am very appreciative of Dr. Bathke! I, at the age of 18, was referred to Dr. Bathke by my primary physician. Even though I was a young mother, her level of care was unparallelled. Now, at the age of 27 finding my own OBGYN in Charlotte, NC has proven to be hard. She is a wonderful, informative doctor no matter what the circumstances and she will be an excellent resource and companion throughout your pregnancy! I can't say enough about her character! Very professional and always willing to help :)
Dr. Bathke has been my OB/GYN since 2003, when my previous OB Dr. Kronman left the area. She was wonderful for my fourth pregnancy and so supportive; in fact, we both had three children around the same age and were pregnant at the same time, although she had twins (numbers 4 and 5!). So we related to each other very well and I can't say enough about how caring and helpful she is. I look forward to my annual visits with her now and miss seeing her on regular basis (but, with four children, we are D-O-N-E). To the reviewer who disagreed with Kris's choices as a woman/mother, I have to say that I also made different choices then she did for myself (I breastfed and had natural-drug free childbirths), but I found her as a Dr. to be completely supportive of my choices and totally non-judgmental. I would (and have) recommended her as a dr. to my friends. She's awesome! :)
I cannot say enough how fantastic Dr. Bathke has been for me and my family. She is caring, knowledgeable, and even though she is obviously very busy, makes you feel like you are her only patient. She delivered both of my baby girls and if we go for a third I will be back again in a heartbeat. I have full confidence in her abilities as a physician, and greatly appreciate her calm bedside manner.
I had Dr Bathke for my first pregnancy and will be going to her again for my current pregnancy. I had been referred to her as the clinic's 'fertility specialist' because I needed to have a laposcopy done. She must have done a good job because a couple months later I was pregnant (after a year of trying!) and this time it only took 2 months. I have been very happy with the care I have received from her. Yes, she shared her experiences with her births with me, but I never felt pressured by her to do things the way she did. She offered me information to help me make my own decisions. The only complaint is that she can run late, but most Drs do. It can be hard to get in for a last minute appointment, but I think that is because she has many patients. I would definitely recommend her for a doctor.
Dr. Bathke was the best dr I have ever seen! I had a horrible 1st pregnancy w/ a different dr and saw Kris for my 2nd and she calmed all of my fears and had an incrediable 2nd pregnancy! she was VERY flexable from her appts to the c-section date and very open! I have already sent other people to her and will contine recommending her to everyone I meet! I lost my insurance that provides me to see her but I am thinking about skiping the new insured dr and just paying cash just so I can see Dr. Bathke!
This is my 2nd birth and she was the on call dr that delivered for my first. She was soo great then that I decided to go with her this time around. She answers all my questions, and is VERY likable. I would recommend her to all my friends. Her and her staff are GREAT!....Speaking to the person that left a comment below, Dr. Bathke has twins, speaking as a Mom of twins, it's is VERY difficult to breast feed twins. And in case you were wondering this is a site for rating doctors not rating other parents!
So helpful, kind and understanding. Even when she knew I would be transferring to a different city and different hospital system she was always helpful and treated me with respect. I always felt comfortable asking her questions and she just went out of her way to be kind.
