I understand some of the criticism listed below, but I would still recommend Dr. Posner. I think that sometimes he tries to be funny, but it comes across as insensitive or arrogant. I did walk out of a couple of my appointments thinking “what a jerk.” Also, if you expect your obstetrician to walk you through every step of the pregnancy and request multiple testing as a cautionary measure, then he is probably not the right physician for you.
Even with these criticisms, I had a positive experience. Dr. Posner followed the same format for each appointment (review test results, answer questions, whatever examination required that week) and that worked really well for me because I needed someone to help me sort through conflicting information. I always felt that I had his undivided attention and I really appreciated that he was honest when he did not know the answer to a question. This made me trust him. He has a laid back personality and will wait until test results are in before discussing options. In my case, I worried about the results of various tests because of my age and they all came back negative, except for a minor one. In short, I stressed out over nothing. I was also diagnosed and treated for hyperplasia before my pregnancy by another physician, who referred me back to my family physician for future biopsies. My family physician did not seem concerned. I had planned to inform her at my next appointment that I wanted a biopsy to make sure everything was fine, but Dr. Posner brought up the hyperplasia at my 6-week follow-up appointment and proposed a plan to deal with it. It meant that I had to undergo a Pap test, biopsy, and insertion of an IUD in one appointment, but it was a good solution for me. I worried about being able to manage the pain of these procedures in one appointment for weeks, barely sleeping the night before. To my great surprise, everything went very quickly (less than 5 minutes) and was relatively painless. In part, this is due to my body having been stretched through the pregnancy, but it is also because Dr. Posner knows what he is doing. Little things like using warm water, instead of cold water, for the speculum made a gigantic difference in me being able to relax my body (something I have not been able to do in the past), which greatly reduced the time needed and especially the pain. He should train other physicians (not just medical students) on how to do these procedures properly. My only criticism is that my appointments were rarely on time. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Posner is the best OB (Gynecologist) who I have ever seen. He took care of my second pregnancy this time and my C-section is done carefully and skillfully. Each time when I went to my apponitment with Dr. Posner, he and his nurse are always very nice and really make me at ease. Dr. Posner is punctual, polite and courtesy. He is very knowledgeable to the questions that I had, and well prepared for the details during the pregnancy. Each of my questions is answered professionally and clearly. He and his team is very experienced as well. His receptionnist Mary is very kind too. I appreciate Dr Posner for his care and expertise! In a word, he is an excellent doctor.
I had two pregnancies with Dr. Posner. Both experiences were excellent. His staff is incredible - they are quick to acknowledge you and my appointments were always on time. I really enjoyed how they tried to accommodate my busy schedule even though Dr. Posner is very busy himself. I had the pleasure of having Dr. Posner actually deliver my first baby. It was a calm and confident experience. When we thought there may have been issues at the start of my second pregnancy - Dr. Posner was very compassionate. - he was clear about what was happening and I felt very informed. Overall, I had a great confidence in Dr. Posner. All my questions were answered directly without any confusion. He has a great sense of humour and is very professional. I would have more babies just to see his staff again ... ok, maybe not! But they are just that great. He is worth the wait if he is not immediately available.
I'm really shocked to hear any bad reviews of this lovely and caring Ob/Gyn. I wish he was a family physician because then I could see him more often. I guess you can't please everyone, but I'm really surprised because I found him really attentive through two pregnancies. He never leaves the room until all of your questions are answered. He has an ultrasound device in his office, so my husband and I got to see the heart as early as 9 weeks last time, which was really reassuring. Don't change, Dr.P! Thanks for everything.
Worst experience with a doctor ever. I insisted my husband come to one appointment with me to try to advocate for help and he was shocked at how awful the man was. He was actually surfing on his phone when I was describing my maternal depression. Some women are not just affected post-natal and he could have cared less.
Dr. Posner is an excellent doctor and a very nice "down to earth" guy. We need more doctors like him! To those of you that had a bad experience with Dr. Poster, keep in mind that he has bad days just like everybody else. Perhaps you went in his office with the wrong attitude. He is very busy with his practice, surgeries and I believe he also teaches. By far the best doctor, caring and very helpful. His assistant Mary is a sweetheart.
Dr. Posner is a lovely Doctor. He's timely, patient and very informative. His staff are amazing his nurse and admin staff are so kind and really make you at ease. A very positive experience for the first time Mom!
Found him cold and arrogant and dreaded every visit.Could not book 6 week postpartum visit as there were no appointments for three weeks. Went to my family doc which was all I needed though for uncomplicated c section birth, but was still surprised at the inability to book followup.
Overheard his nurse constantly saying "See you in two years" making the assumption everyone will have more kids.
