NIGHTMARE C-SECTION and postpartum care:
I was going for my second C-section for failure to progress and I was unlucky enough to have this monster. Near the end of my shotgun section, I could FEEL THE SCALPEL AND CAUTERY. It was unlike the other normal sensations felt during a section and I asked her to stop. It was excrutiating. She poked her head over the curtain and snarled "I'm almost done. What do you want me to do here?!" She refused to wait for more epimorph in my spinal so I asked the anesthetist for propofol to get me through. Thank goodness I have medical training. I couldn't imagine how nightmarish this would be for someone who didn't.
She used staples instead of sutures (because why waste time when you can cut more women?) and I got a wound infection. Her secretary HOUNDED me for my out-of-province health care number for billing and when I mentioned I had a wound infection, that she was responsible for, I was directed back to my own OB. Finally I got an OB on call days later, who gasped at the puss-filled, gaping wound I had cared for myself as best as possible. It could have been taken care of with a simple appointment or a prescription call in to a pharmacy.
There is more, but this is the most glaring breeches of professionalism that I encountered in my experience with this person. I hope others can avoid this experience as well.
Dr McCubbin was my DR for my 1st child - but the day I went into labour she wasn't on call and someone else delivered. I am now 7mths on my second and I went back with her - she is friendly, to the point, and quick - lets face it, she is a BUSY women. The nurse Margie has always been quite friendly but receptionist gets frustrated easy, although she hasn't really been rude to me, I have seen it on many occasions. Perhaps the Franklin Coveys 7 Habits of Highly Effective People would be something that could improve her behavior. We put our receptionist through it and it done a world of good. If not she was going to be fired with weekly complaints.
This comment is for her staff named corrin/karen only. Called her to reschedule my appointment and she got frustrated started asking personal questions and bullied me that no I have to show up that very day. The doctor has been good no comments about that but the receptionist lady has been a horror and has zero customer service skills for this job.
Dr Mccubbin was my doctor during my preganancy, intially it was great but right at the end I was almost being forced to have a c section when I went into the hospital after 2 rounds of cervidil. I stood my ground and managed to have my baby vaginally but not happy that she didnt even want to give vaginal birth a chance. Apart from that she was amazing throughout my pregnancy and took the time to listen and give advice. Her front office nurse needs to learn to be more friendly, makes me uncomfortable even when I just call in for something.
Dr. McCubbin was my OB for both of my sons. Her appts were always very fast and to the point. Margie was also amazing. They are both very straight forward. Dr. McCubbin was on her day off the day I had my first son so Dr. Chua delivered. Not the best delivery but it wasn't horrible. Dr. McCubbin was on call for my second son and it went perfectly. She made it just in time...One full push and he was out. I see a lot of negative comments on her about her but people need to realize not every delivery is going to be perfect. Dr's do what they can in the moment and just as you or I would from time to time maybe make a wrong choice or could have done something better so do the Dr's. Every delivery is different and they do what they can to make it work. Keep doing what you are doing Dr. McCubbin you are great!!!
