Ratings for Dr. Rachel L. Kramer
If you enjoy being upset and miserable after every prenatal visit, Dr. Kramer is perfect. She is downright cruel. I saw her for the first 30 weeks of my pregnancy. She said I should eat less, basically go on a diet, and eat low fat foods because I was gaining too much weight. I am 5'7" and weighed 130lbs when I got pregnant. She snapped at me when I asked questions. Told me how much malpractice insurance is when I wanted to discuss birthing options. Do yourself a favor and find ANYONE else to take care of you during your pregnancy and childbirth.
Dr. Kramer was rude, dismissive and unprofessional. The office staff was terrible, too. One of my ultrasounds showed something that needed further investigation ; everything turned out fine, but the staff made the experience so much more intensely painful than it had to be. Communication was terrible. I was told Maternal Fetal Medicine was closed for Rosh Hashanah and that I would have to wait 5 days for an appointment, only to find out when I got there that MFM was open and would have seen me right away IF SOMEONE FROM KRAMER'S OFFICE HAD ACTUALLY CALLED THEM THAT FIRST DAY. When I talked to Kramer about this incident, she told me I'd probably misunderstood the scheduling. There is no way in the world I would have chosen to put myself through 5 days of misery if I'd known there was another option. There were several other issues -- like staff discussing patients at the desk with identifying details -- but this was by far the worst, personally. I ended up changing to a new practice at the beginning of my third trimester.
I was a patient of Dr. Kramer's for 3 years. Never have I encountered doctor with so poor listening skills. She would interrupt me before I could finish my question and answer what she thought I was asking. What I recall most was her interrupting me in the midst of a question with the comment "I don't care what you hear on TV or Oprah...". She never heard the question and treated me as if I was an uneducated idiot. She loves to hear herself talk.
I am 24 weeks pregnant with my first baby. When I found out I was pregnant (6 weeks) I was referred to Kramer OB/GYN by the Emerson ER. I cannot say enough awesome things about Dr. Hale & Dr. Sinopoli, as I absolutely adore the both of them. Unfortunately, Dr. Kramer is downright obnoxiously & unnecessarily RUDE! It came to a point that I asked the secretary when makin my appointments, please do not schedule me with Kramer. There were a couple emergency appointments that I had no choice but to meet with her and she came off very impatient to me. I was worried because I was bleeding a lot, she put me down to saying I didn't know what I was talking about because I had never experienced pregnancy before and I'll be fine. The second time I met with her, I was worried that I was experiencing Braxton Hicks and it was really early in my pregnancy. I explained my symptoms and again she put me down and rushed me out of the office. I switched doctors today. I would never want her near my baby.
It was more than 2 years ago that my first child was born. I never took the time to come on and review Dr. Kramer because to be honest- I always thought people who did that kind of thing needed to find something else to do. However, I'm pregnant again- and now that I have a new OBGYN- I am realizing more and more how UN-NECESSARY Dr. Kramer's bedside manner really is- and I feel like sharing that so that other woman can avoid it. Her level of care is without question- my baby was born healthily and no problem- so of course I can't comment there. However, no need to be bullied, belittled and made to feel just about the size of a pea while going through such a joyful process. Not much more to say- talented Dr. I am sure- but there are plenty of others who don't have major bedside manner problems. Every woman I know in this area (and there are plenty) that have had Dr. kramer have felt the same. I know 5+ and none have returned for the second infant- that must say something.
Unbeilavable! I ddon't know what these people are talking about with there bad reviews! Dr. Kramer and her staff are very plesent and profesional! Dr. Kramer does not sugar coat a thing when it comes to the facts. I love Dr. Kramer! Dr.Kramer has been nothing but a joy! Her care was very comforting and extreamely knolegable. I would recomend her to everybody. Thank you Dr.Kramer!!!
