Ratings for Dr. Jane A. Molinari
Dr. Molinari was recommended to me for my second pregnancy by one of my good acquaintances as a competent doctor, the one not intervening too much in the pregnancy process as a natural one and allowing the patient to have her own decisions. With me, however, it turned out to be quite the opposite experience. Dr. Molinari managed to misdiagnose me FOUR times within only a few months: telling me that I had thyroid problems (when I have none) and insisting that I should see the endocrinologist; later telling me, the expectant mother, that my unborn baby might have mental retardation (to me this hypothetical diagnosis sounds very disturbing and should ethically not be announced at all), then expressing her severe concerns that I have diabetes and high blood pressure that might lead to grave consequences for me and my baby, including the need for a C-section. Dr. Molinari insisted that I should visit one of her colleagues, a specialist on diabetes, but when I refused (as I mistrusted her laboratory tests and had none of the symptoms of either diabetes or thyroid problems) she wrote me an official detached and cold letter, saying that I should leave her and go to some other provider because I was not COMPLYING WITH HER RECOMMENDATIONS. I was only a few weeks away from my delivery; I found it highly disconcerting to be treated like someone without any say in what concerned my health and repeatedly ‘invited’ to leave by the Doctor who supposedly gives her Hippocratic oath, but it was too late then for me to change doctors. I stayed, but Dr. Molinari continued to have ‘great’ concerns about my high blood pressure and high blood sugar; she sent me to UMASS Memorial Hospital, so that they could conduct their own tests about preeclampsia and prove her right. But the specialists there did not find any signs of the above mentioned problems and discharged Dr. Molinari’s concerns as absurd, sending me and my husband home until my actual due date. In the delivery room she totally ignored my husband and my mother not even nodding or saying simple “hello”. My baby Angelique was born in a natural way at forty weeks. She is a happy and robust baby, who smiles at all of her family members at the mere mention of her name and does not show any signs of mental retardation. I feel highly humiliated by this supposition of Dr. Molinari and my only sincere wish is that a pregnant woman would be admitted to the Hospital for her delivery directly when the due date comes without having to go through all this ordeal with the self-willed, erring OB/GYN. A highly disappointing experience.
Dr Molinari does seem like a good and caring doctor. She answered my questions thoroughly without over simplifying as many doctors do. She also seems to care. My one concern is that if you have issues with miscarriages, find another doctor! She told me that miscarriages are psychological. I had already been given medication to help prevent miscarriage of my son, but after my appointment with her didn't bother requesting a prescription for my next pregnancy and lost that one! I switched offices and was sent to a specialist who discovered that I do have a disorder. The specialist did say that I was not doomed to have miscarriages with this disorder, but treating it further decrease my chances of a miscarriage. Miscarriages are not psychological!
She is amazing! I cannot say enough good things about her. I had my first baby in April and she managed my entire pregnancy. Sometimes there is a wait, but she is definitely worth it. Very attentive and knowledgable. Sadly, I did not have her at delivery but she visited me in my room several times before I was discharged.
Dr. Molinari is wonderful - she has a great personality, listens carefully to your issues, and is willing to work with you to find the best solution. There is often a wait to see her due to the nature of her practice, but I haven't switched because I doubt I could find a doctor I feel so comfortable with.
I love her! She took me through a very stressful pregnancy with my son and is currently managing me through my pregnancy. She is always attentive and always listened to what I had to say. I would recommend her without reservations. Even though she wasn't there for the delivery of my son she made sure that she knew everything that was going on and visited me the very next day.
