Ratings for Dr. James B. Mammel
Dr. Mammel was the biggest let down for a first pregnancy experience. I was told in my initial visit that I would be seeing all the doctors in the practice in case Mammel was unavailable at the time of birth. I am currently in my last 4 weeks of my pregnancy and have yet to even see another face. His nurses are not friendly and seem to hate being there, except the younger girl with long brown hair. Dr. Mammel has zero bedside manner and spends at the most 5 minutes in the room with me. I do not recommend him to anyone, especially if it is your first pregnancy.
Dr. Mammel was an OK guy. He was nice enough, but only talked to me for a minute or two each appointment and didn't bother to get to know me. When I actually went into labor, he didn't ask me what I had hoped for and instead decided to induce me to "get this baby out by dinner". He was very uninvolved in the rest of the birthing process and only showed up at the very end to catch the baby and then quickly left again. I don't feel he was a bad doctor, he just didn't take the time or effort to treat me like a person. I did not go back to him when I got pregnant with my second child.
Dr Mammel delivered two of my babies and I am sad I won't need him to deliver anymore. He is a fantastic, knowledgeable, caring man who will spend time listening to you and investigating any issues you have or think you may have. I tell everyone to go see him or anyone at Watson Clinic for that matter!
Dr. Mammel is the most skilled Ob/Gyn I have ever experienced. I worked in the OR at LRMC for years, and when I became pregnant there was not a question of who I would want to deliver my baby. His bedside manner may be a little abrupt, but his skills in the delivery room are unparallel. Would you rather have a friendly obstetrician deliver your baby, or an incredibly reliable skilled one? Personally, as long as my baby comes out healthy, I don't care what their personality is like. I would NEVER have another physician deliver me, he is the best!
